Sample text

It is difficult to control the application ofa particular psychological intervention because its application is hard to separate from the effect of the therapist. The specificity of practitioner-patient interaction is also troublesome if the experimenter, rather than the therapist, determines the result of the particular psychotherapy; this may result from the extended exposure and greater rapport that is established between therapist and patient. With few exceptions, little has been done on health outcomes consequent to psychological interventions in AIDS (see Chapter 18).

Mainstream researchers, comprised mainly ofvirologists, defined the standard approach to AIDS early in the epidemic when they focused on finding a new virus. Their underlying assumption was that a new disease required a new disease agent. The discovery of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in 1983 confirmed rheir expectations and set the course of AIDS research firmly on the track of the one disease agent/one disease/one treatment dogma that served Western medicine for nearly a century. Advances in AIDS research stemmed largely from the incremental, recursive development of the HIV theory, which states that HIV is both necessary and sufficient to account for the degeneration of the immune system as AIDS progresses.

A study design that could determine the value of the availability ofalternative care in those who choose it rather than when it is assigned is to randomize to either randomization to alternative versus conventional care or to a choice of alternative or conventional care. Such a four-group trial would compare the effects of the different treatments among those who chose them versus those who were assigned to them. SOME RESPONSES TO THE PROBLEMS Current circumstances present a wide field of choices to study in CAM medicine, few of which have much preliminary or distinguishing data.
