(ATDN) Peptide T




 

Treatment Review No. 11; April 1994

A drug made up of amino acids - the building blocks of protein - is being studied as a potential treatment for the pain and numbness that people with AIDS and HIV often get in their hands and feet. The drug, Peptide T, is claimed to be able to treat this condition, which is called peripheral neuropathy. The results of recently completed studies have been very disappointing, but a new program, which it is hoped will start in the summer of 1994, will provide Peptide T to people who are HIV positive and have specific symptoms of HIV. Peptide T is now available through the PWA Health Group here in New York City. Contact The Network for other studies for treatments for peripheral neuropathy.
