Question and Answer Session
PROPHYLAXIS OF OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS
QUESTION: In your clinic do you stop prophylaxis for PCP when patients go up above a CD4 count of 200?
DR. CURRIER: Not routinely. I enroll the patients in the ongoing study, if they are interested. Sometimes patients stop prophylaxis on their own and do not tell me that they have decided to discontinue it. But I have not been routinely recommending discontinuation without more data.
MR. FROST (MODERATOR): What about mycobacterium avium complex (MAC)? DR. CURRIER: It is [stopped]. But I do not go around discontinuing it as a matter of routine.
