Some harmful effects of AZT disappear after it is discontinued
After eleven patients on AZT were taken off AZT in favor of an experimental vaccine, ten of the eleven recovered cellular immune functions within a week or two (Scolaro, et al., 1991). The vaccine consisted of an HIV strain that was presumed to be harmless because it had been isolated from a healthy carrier who had been infected by the virus for at least 10 years. Since there was no evidence that the hypothetical vaccine strain differed from that by which the patients were already naturally vaccinated, the only relevant difference between the patients before and during the vaccine trial was the termination of their AZT treatment.
Four patients with pneumonia developed a severe depression in blood cell counts due to an inhibition of blood-cell making organs (such as bone marrow) after the initiation of AZT therapy. Three out of four recovered within 4 to 5 weeks after AZT was discontinued (Gill, et al., 1987).
1The United States Bureau of Justice doesn't keep any records for poppers, because they consider poppers (nitrite inhalants) harmless, 'soft drugs', but there some numbers available indicating that in 1980, 250 million doses of poppers were consumed in the United States. At that time, Burroughs-Wellcome was still producing poppers.
