Wow, what an incredible turnaround for Charlie Sheen!
In an interview with Daily Mail Online, Charlie revealed his HIV has been fully suppressed thanks to an experimental clinical drug called PRO-140. The wonderful news comes just a year after Sheen admitted his unfortunate diagnosis in November of 2015.
Per the actor, a weekly injection of the drug keeps his virus undetectable and completely manageable. It’s a great development considering many HIV/AIDS sufferers have to take an intense cocktail of drugs to maintain their health.
Luckily for 51-year-old, sometime last a year company named CytoDyn gave him the chance to undergo experimental clinical trial which ultimately changed his life for the better.
Speaking on the amazing turn of events, the dad of two gushed:
“It’s impossibly amazing. Personally, I think about how I felt on the day and how I feel today. Wow. Talk about a transformation. One minute you’re on the road to perdition, the next you’re on the road to providence. It’s amazing. I thought for sure I’d be stuck on that cocktail forever, but look at me now. I’m so grateful for the geniuses at CytoDyn for developing this and finding me.”
Aww, we’re so happy for Charlie! It just goes to show there’s hope for people in similar situations.
While some users of the drug have experienced difficult side effects, the star is happy to report he’s doing just fine:
“You’d think that I have this disease and I’m doing a trial so I’m probably covered in blackheads and all that. Not at all. I haven’t felt anything – nothing. The only thing that I’ve noticed was that on the day of the injection I felt a little bit of fatigue. Just a little bit. But you know… ‘hash tag so what?!’ I could barely notice it, and now I feel great. It’s beyond the pale of amazing.”
Incredible! It’s a relief to hear the California resident is doing so well.
Congrats on your improving health, Charlie!
