It Wasn't That Super

It Wasn't That Super


After rushing to issue an alert in February about the possible emergence of a new and highly virulent 'superstrain' of HIV, health officials in New York City are now saying it was a false alarm. Further testing of the virus in the case of a New York man who quickly progressed to AIDS and was resistant to most anti-HIV medications has traced a connection to a Connecticut man who apparently infected the first through unprotected sex. Both men are reportedly doing well on salvage therapy regimens. Health officials now believe the New York man's regular use of crystal methamphetamine and frequent unprotected sex, often with multiple partners, is linked to his rapid development of AIDS.
