AIDS threat Continued frerm page 36 can be transmitted may be a strain that learned to resist some or all of the drugs in one or all three of the classes from which cocktails are developed. Often, he said, if the virus is re- sistant to any of the drugs in a par- ticular class, it will be resistant to all of the drugs in that class. What's worse, Olewiler said, is that until a new class of drugs is developed, those drugs now being tested are not likely to be any more effective in combating the new strains than the drugs already in use. The drugs in the current clinical trials are of the same classes already established. Olewiler currently has 120 HIV-positive patients who reside i the Cape Region. That number increases in the summer, when. people flock to the area for sum- mer employment, he said. "The population I have, by and large, is a very, responsible group," said Olewiler. However, he said, "there's definitely a popu- lation out there that just can't deal with it [being HIV positive]." Sex, he said, is an escape mech- anism for some patients. "They forget for awhile that they have a- disease," he said. Others, he said, see Rehoboth Beach in the sum- mer as a free-for-all. "Some peo- ple leave responsibility and man- ners at home when they're here for vacations," said Olewiler. There are known cases of AIDS-defined patients who regu- larly engage in oral sex, because they believe flaaiisn't risky behav- ior. "That is risky sex," said Olewil- er. That patient is at risk of get- ting other diseases, and although at a much lower risk for doing so, could transmit the HIV virus. He or she could also become infected with another, more resistant, strain of HIV. Olewiler said he was startled to learn that some people from the area attend anonymous parties in New York, up to twice a month, where risky sexual behavior is commonplace. At the recent World AIDS Or- ganization conference held in Geneva, European data showed that the incidence rate of AIDS declined by 85 percent since 1992, he said. "But that's AIDS-defined illnesses," said Olewiler. "It's not HIV transmission." The number of people being infected with HIV is still high, he said. FIHE YJ,I .4UiP NfL'IHI" g,bebeth Avo..
