Does anyone know the annual "failure rate" of current HIV drug treatment regimes, i.e., of those who are fully compliant, what percentage per year are dying, and what percentage are becoming chronically debilitated?

the info should be here somewhere, or at GMHC

I've heard that 1/2 of people have to stop taking the various cocktails bec of toxicity and buildup and stuff, but have no stats, and don't know whether they switch to another, or take a break and go back to the same one.

oh, and death rates are hard to get--afaik, you don't die from HIV, but from opportunistic diseases or organ failure.
