I work with prisoners with HIV and hepatitis C. Recently at a prison in
California, within a period of six months, three prisoners with HIV have
suffered kidney failure. At this time, I do not know which cocktail they
were on. I will find that out. I am very concerned that the kidney failure
is the result of a new HIV medication that is toxic to the kidneys. Have
you heard about any increase in kidney failure. All three prisoners are
African American and I do have a little information about HIVAN and
understand that it is a prevalent among African Americans.
Any ideas? Amprenavir, foscarnet?
