Johns Hopkins University researchers are starting two studies that explore ways of extending to AIDS patients the benefits of a life-prolonging medication called Bactrim.The sulfa-based antibiotic is used to prevent and treat pneumocystitis carinii pneumonia (PCP), an opportunistic infection that preys on people with severely damaged immune systems.Unlike AZT, an anti-viral treatment prescribed to slow the progress of the AIDS virus itself, Bactrim is used to treat the complications that arise when the virus reaches an advanced stage.
