The social worker is made to do in first of 50 to finish the trial and will have to wait months before confirming that HIV is no longer in his system. There’s also any chances that the patient’s doses of conventional medicine are giving to the apparently clean bill of health. And even if all is fine after this first experiment, the tests will carry on for another five years.
