AFRICA: Combination ART offers near-normal lifespan – study
www.newsfromafrica.org, 4 Jan 2014 [cached]
"The Ugandan study validates what we have known about combination ART and life expectancy in the West for many years - that HIV-positive people can have a relatively normal lifespan," Nathan Ford, medical coordinator for Médecins Sans Frontières' Access to Essential Medicines campaign, co-author of the study, told IRIN/PlusNews at the 6th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention.
A 2009 study [ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18657708 ] of life expectancy of people on combination ART in high-income countries found that the average life expectancy at age 20 was about two-thirds that of the general population.
"In the pre-ART era, people died within months of diagnosis, and in the early 1990s - when people took monotherapy, dual therapy or were only able to access treatment for a short while during clinical trials - it was really about buying a few more months," said Ford.
