Transcript n Open Letter io n. Gray Men in f!o IT Dili ■ o you have a W fever, muscle -J" ^ aches, malaise - the "crud" that's going around the office? Before you assume it's the flu or other common aliment, ask yourself: "Have I recently engaged in sexual THE CENTER FOR AIDS HOPE and REMEMBRANCE PROJECT behavior, such as unprotected receptive anal intercourse, that might have exposed me to HIV?" Recent infection with HIV, known as primary HIV infection, is the second leading cause of fever in gay men. Are you sure it's the flu? Recognizing the signs of a recent HIV infection can make an enormous difference if you receive prompt medical attention. New research at Harvard University and other academic centers indicates that persons treated soon after infection may preserve the ability of their immune systems to control the virus. Persons who treat later may lose this advantage. We bring this information to your attention because recent evidence suggests that gay male Houstonians, especially young gay men of color, are once again becoming HIV-infected at an alarming rate. In 1999, according to the City of Houston's HIV/AIDS surveillance program, another 389 gay males in Harris County tested positive for the first time. Of these, 24% were African-American or Hispanic men 20 to 29 years old. These figures are consistent with a study reporting that young minority gay men in Houston have the highest rate of seroconversion of any gay male community in the United States. Primary HIV infection is a medical emergency. The symptoms of primary infection are "flu-like." They occur 2 to 4 weeks after exposure to the virus and include the following: • fever • diarrhea • swollen lymph nodes • nausea & vomiting • sore throat • headache • rash • ulcerations in • muscle aches the mouth or on • malaise the genitals These symptoms can last for 4 weeks or longer and vary in severity from person to person. Treatment for primary infection will not cure HIV. But it may give your immune system a chance to control the virus - a chance that could be lost forever if treatment is delayed. If you would like more information about the recognition and treatment of primary HIV infection, or if you need a referral to a physician specializing in HIV, please call The Center for AIDS at 281-HIV-INFO.
