Dr. Enrique A. Tayag, director of the National Epidemiology Center of the DOH, said they view the case of the patient, whom he identified only as "Jed," as "an isolated case, sort of a medical puzzle."
Tayag said, in a telephone interview, that it was the patient himself who told him that the result of his latest HIV test was "negative."
Tayag,who is also San Lazaro Hospital medical director, refused to make categorical statements on Jed's case. He just said:"What is evolving is that he used to be HIV+ who became HIV-."
"Jed's case is still puzzling us," he admitted. "I hope we [find] the answer."
He stressed that this unusual case involving a Filipino HIV positive patient who eventually became HIV negative is not something that one can look forward to in the future because "it is not going to be the regular case."
Tayag said: "We are undergoing a process and looking at the situation of Jed now.
"If the result of his latest HIV test would confirm that he has become HIV negative, it has many interpretations," Tayag explained. "It could be interpreted that the HIV has become dormant. It also means that he still has the HIV."
Tayag said the DOH does not want to give the impression that Jed has been "cured" of HIV because no cure has been found yet for HIV.
He continued: "We are analyzing his other tests. I am just telling you some of the possible explanations of his case."
The San Lazaro Hospital medical director said if Jed's doctors would confirm and declare that he has become HIV negative, "Jed will become the first Filipino who is HIV positive and now is HIV negative."
Malaysia, China, and Britain have reported cases similar to Jed, Tayag said.
He repeatedly emphasized that the DOH cannot categorically declare at the moment that Jed is now HIV negative, or if he will still be categorized as "a person living with HIV."
He said he has notified the World Health Organization (WHO) about the developments in Jed's unusual HIV case and added the DOH will share laboratory tests results with the world body to enable them to jointly assess the case.
He said they will have to write a report analyzing Jed's treatment protocol, especially the medicines and ART he received.
There is no known cure yet for this dreaded disease, but a cocktail of antiretroviral therapy (ART) is given to HIV positive people to arrest the progression of HIV infection into full-blown acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).
The WHO has reported that as of December 2009, an estimated 5.25 million people in low- and middle-income countries are being administered the ART.
Tayag said: "Our message stays the same.
