<TABLE ><TR><TD><FONT size=2><DIV> <DIV>In 1998 within weeks of strting combo, the tips of my fingers and thumbs turned bright red, a large red blotch appeared on the under side aligned with the small thinger. The tips of all my toes did the same thing. Several doctors looked at this and seemed puzzled ?? One said auto antibodies, so I was tested and came back "positive" they seemed at the time as have many other independant doctors indicate that the red marks where linked with the auto antibodies and or liver damage ? Or are they I dont know ?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Has anyone else been tested for auto antibodies ?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Anyone else got those red marks ?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Whats the incidence of auto antibodies ( I know they can be a cause of so-called "false" "hiv" "sero-positivity").</DIV></DIV></FONT></TD></TR></TABLE>
