AIDS: A U.S. study of WF10, a mixture of Hydrogen Peroxide and bleach, suggested that WF10 improves the function of macrophages, damages HIV once WF10 is released by an infected cell, enhances resistance to infections, and does not interfere with AZT or ddI activity. WF10 does not show any toxicity in the liver, bone marrow, or kidneys; side effects were mild and temporary. WF10 is available from Canada through Health Canada's Special Access Programme and costs approximately $1,200 to $1,600 per cycle.
