Charlie Sheen has revealed some news regarding his HIV status following the use of an experimental injection in a clinical trial. The actor says his HIV has now been fully suppressed!
The 51 year old actor revealed he was HIV positive last year and since then he’s been part of a clinical trial for a drug called PRO-140.
Sheen shared the happy news this week saying he has achieved complete suppression of the virus. Although Sheen still has HIV there is no chance of passing it on to others.
Speaking about the diagnosis, Sheen felt confident that this would be life changing for so many other sufferers like himself. “It’s impossibly amazing,” he said. “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.”
The trial Sheen was a part of saw him taking weekly injections which had no side effects- as opposed to the traditional antiretroviral therapy (ART) used to combat HIV, which involves taking dozens of pills a day.
