Aids drugs research

Common Questions and Answers about Aids drugs research


Avatar f tn WASHINGTON (AP) -- The virus that causes AIDS can hide in the bone marrow, avoiding drugs and later awakening to cause illness, according to new research that could point the way toward better treatments for the disease. Finding that hide-out is a first step, but years of research lie ahead. Dr.
Avatar n tn this has longgggg bothered me that AIDS research is getting the lions share of research money. please sign your name to do some HCV activism.

Avatar f tn I did some research yesterday and I found that there are two new drugs for schizophrenia in Phase III clinical trials. One is by Roche (biopertin) and the other is by BiolineRx (BL-1020). Biopertin has been shown to help with positive and negative symptoms, and BL-1020 has been shown to help with positive and cognitive symptoms. In an ideal world, there would be a drug that helps with all the symptoms of schizophrenia. But these drugs are a definitely a step in the right direction.

Avatar n tn Often they test stuff first on rats and if there is a problem they stop. However from this article it is clear that even our closest 'relatives' handle disease differently. How many drugs out there that could cured or treated many human diseases have been abandoned when rats got ill? Of course I know that the only way to continue such research is if we are in Nazi Germany or in China testing chinese Prisoners. Chimpanzee Gene Study May Help Cure Humans
Avatar m tn A new report says that health insurance companies discriminate against people with hepatitis B and C by charging high out-of-pocket costs for drugs, but the industry lobby has called the analysis “very one-sided” and limited in scope.
Avatar m tn Well, it seems like there is no other cause than genes to this (probably), but since I really dont like being this underweight, are there any drugs that could help me gain weight (in other words eat more/ slow metabolism). Like some steroids or something? Again, I have tried the "eat more" thing, but it doesnt seem to work very well. At first I do gain weight, but I get pretty bad diarrhea ETC. from eating too much.
Avatar f tn if hbsag is negative you are on time to try hbv vaccine otherwise it doesn t work hbv gets cronic only at birth or very young or if aids or immune suppressed by drugs, so if just infected it will clear itself by 6-12months the only hbv cure available is sequential treatment: tenofovir for 1-3 years and then interferon add on for another 2-3 years. no other cure at the moment.
277836 tn?1359666174 Reported January 16, 2008 Existing HIV Treatment Could Help Prevent Disease (Ivanhoe Newswire) – Drugs already used to treat patients with HIV may also help prevent the vaginal transmission of the disease. Researchers say this study shows that existing drugs could help curtail the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The study was done in humanized mice meaning the mice had fully functional human immune systems and infection-fighting cells in their bodies.

167426 tn?1254086235 Naltrexone is usually used in 50mg doses as a drug to help heroin or opium addicts, by blocking the effect of such drugs. FDA-approved naltrexone, in a low dose (previously 3mg, optimal adult dose has been raised to 4.5mg), can boost the immune system, helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and autoimmune diseases. LDN is currently under experimental use for many conditions.

Avatar f tn s patients are those with Aids, Cancer and serious CFS. All of the research is available for anyone to read - and they should read about any supplement prior to taking anything - which is what I have done. Thanks for your comments.
1583549 tn?1308749462 Do you have insurance or a way of paying for treatment? If so and the condition of your liver is good enough that you can afford to wait, I would wait until the new drugs are available. It is looking pretty good that tela and boce will be approved by mid year (we never know for sure of course). You give up a lot of control and input about your treatment when you are part of a trial.
1225178 tn?1318980604 I know somebody posted where to go to find out about the research that is going on, and what clinical trials we may be able to get into... but my brain isn't working today and I can't find the post. Somebody please give me that web site. I'd really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn Co Step trial vaccine started in 2004 and was pulled last year because instead of decreasing the ability of progressing to AIDS is sped up the risk of progressing to AIDS. I have seen the failure of many drugs time after time in the last twenty years that I don’t get my hopes up until it is approved and on the market.
1712993 tn?1308491982 There is not enough conclusive research that has been done on the after effects of drugs. You should see your doctor, explain your situation and get tested. Best of luck.
Avatar m tn As I continue to research more and more for a brief undergraduate class, and this forum has helped significantly, I was wondering, as I read so much online material (some not so up-to-date), what is classified as a significant ARS (Acute Retroviral Symptoms) timeline? Does anyone have legit info. or websites that deal with the timeline of the HIV/AIDS onset to diagnosis? I have seen that seems a legit source.
Avatar n tn I did a search of clinical trials and did not find any specific research for 1a and 1b. It seems to me that the research is HCV in general and a lot of the emphasis becomes focused on the fantastic results that the current tx standard creates for the very small minority of those in the USA with non 1a or non 1b HCV which is currently less than 50% SVR. The 2's enjoy a 85% response rate.
Avatar m tn Why is it they give HIV patients a PI drug to keep the aids virus in remission but not HVC patients.Isnt this form of maintence? .I think they should be giving it to people who have HVC and did not respond to the PI drugs because what else is left?...Maybe one day they will use the PI as maintenance for the ones who dont respond to SOC and PI drugs.Ive heard of aids people liiving a lot longer now because of the PI`s too.Some are with aids for 25 years and still doing ok.
Avatar f tn During her stay at parkland she was diagnosed with tuberculosis, she got meningitis, that cryptocuccus bacteria, a stool disease, kaposi sarcoma, all the stuff AIDS Related. She passed 10/31/2009 at midnight of end stage AIDS. After her death another worry began. Did I have aids? Did my 3 year old have it as well? See, my mama and I were very close we shared eye liner, loofahs, almost everything. My daughter would bite her and make her bleed. We shared it all.
