IAC: Markowitz on the Supervirus Case
by Peter Staley
AIDSmeds Founder Peter Staley interviewed Dr. Martin Markowitz of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center for our first-ever podcast. Dr. Markowitz reported the case of a New York City gay man who, in early 2005, rapidly progressed to AIDS after becoming infected with a multiple-drug-resistant strain of HIV. This so-called "supervirus" case created a huge media sensation at the time. Recently, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control published a report highlighting its exhaustive investigation of the case, and this is the first time Dr. Markowitz has commented publicly since the CDC report. Listen to him answer our questions, and his critics, about this fascinating story.
