Avatar n tn BANGKOK – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible. The World Health Organization and the U.N. agency UNAIDS said the results "instilled new hope" in the field of HIV vaccine research.
Avatar n tn Vaccine Campaigns May Be The Cause of New AIDS-Like Disease in Asia and Drug Resistant HIV Affecting Africa Researchers have identified mysterious new symptoms that have left scores of people in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa with an AIDS-like disease and drug-resistant HIV respectively. Coincidentally, vaccine trials took place in several regions in both continents. The patients' immune systems become damaged, leaving them unable to fend off germs as healthy people do.
770426 tn?1235061489 She is currently in a Sunrise facility in Wilmington DE and I need to move her to a facility near me in the greater Atlanta area. My question is, has anyone moved an AZ or dementia patient a long distance like that and what are your suggestions for making the move as smooth as possible? I'll take any tips or suggestions you have to offer. My mother can not speak and is not oriented to much of anything. However, she can stand a move a bit and is not on oxygen.
Avatar n tn One shot of I think the globulin injection (i think that is what it is called) would have cured him from this illness if it was diagnosed and his shot record evaluated in 1990 would have told them that he does not have teh hepatitis b vaccine. Does anyone know when the CDC recommended hepatitis b for school age children came into play? I feel that the system just failed somehow or another. Any thoughts?

Avatar f tn Hi, I recently had the standard, seasonal flu vaccine just over a month ago. Whilst the injection was being administered there was a strong stinging sensation followed by an intense pain in my deltoid muscle, whilst picking my heavy bag up off the floor (same arm). I was told to wait 20 minutes out in the main waiting room. That evening I experienced severe chills and aches for the following 48 hours.
Avatar m tn how fare are scientists saying that we are away from a cure/vaccine ?? , what developments have been done ?
Avatar f tn Immunity is not lost even if hbsab goes und once you responded to vaccine and also adults always clear hbv so vaccine is not even needed.it is only at birth that you can get it it is mandatory not to use any kind of drugs,poppers used by many gay men make aids....so in cass of unhealthy life or drug use consider that any disease is not cleared and immunensystem is damaged to mildly to aids....
1530342 tn?1405016490 A vaccine is FAR more likely than a cure. For MOST viral infections, there is no cure, and with HIV, a retrovrius, it is unlikely. We still don't have a cure for the common cold, and influenza. A cure would be wonderful, but just think of all the other diseases out there with no cure, only treatments. The thing to be thankful for is how far we've come in the treatment for HIV/AIDS. MANY people are living completely normal life spans...
Avatar n tn m assuming you are referring to the Pneumovax 23? This is the pneumonia vaccine that is recommended as routine for those age 50+ or persons age 2 or older with certain chronic conditions or in certain environmental or social situations...
Avatar m tn Any person can get the HPV vaccine at any age. The vaccine is recommended for younger women because younger women have a better response to the vaccine (higher levels of antibodies to HPV) and because in most nations, most persons acquire HPV before they are in their mid 20's. That does not mean that the vaccine will not benefit your wife. It is fine for her to be vaccinated and the vaccine will likely benefit her.
Avatar m tn hbv has no symptoms and if you have no aids or take immune suppressive drugs you clear hbv more than 95% times, as an adult it is less than a flu, it makes no liver damage it is not even possible to make studies about cronic hbv on adults because there are no cases found on normal immune system patients it is possible to get cronic hbv almost 100% (more than 95% times) at birth when there is no immune system.
Avatar n tn ve been stung by needle from a homeless person, and usually those are transmitting deseases like HIV or Hepatitis, I went to the hospital and they made for me anti tetanus shot and the next day they gave me also Hepatitis vaccine, that was on the 20th of August, now I am just paranoid about aids and i got 2 itchy spots one on my arm and the other on my lap, had after 12 days of the vaccines inflamation of lymph gland under my arms and the one from under the left hand was hurting me...
419008 tn?1219536438 I called the pediatrician and they said they will NOT give her the vaccine because that vaccine is for an illness that ONLY children under the age of 2 can get, therefore it is medically unethical to give her the vaccine. I called the school back and left a message. Finally got a call back this morning and the nurse said that it is state mandated and she HAS to get the vaccine otherwise she can not attend. What do I do, I don't want her to have an unnecessary shot.
Avatar f tn Any moms in Atlanta I'm due June 23rd with another girl, would like to make friends
Avatar f tn Yes, when hepatitis B virus contaminated blood, semen, or vaginal fluids enter your body, then you are at risk of getting infected with this virus. Heaptitis B has a vaccine that protects you from getting sick with the disease, so make sure to take the vaccination. Otherwise, it is advisable to exercise safe sex to protect yourself and your partner(s) from many other sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS.
Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
Avatar f tn finally at 82 days I have went ICTC centre Mumbai where they have tested me for HIV and syphilis both came negative.. COMB AIDS test was used..
Avatar m tn This subject has a great deal of controversy surrounding it, but I have included a link to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundations which works with HIV/AIDS research around the world. I hope you find your answers or at least some hope............ http://www.hivplusmag.
605648 tn?1249571427 there is a lot of news lately on pregnant woman being at high risk, so i probably will take the vaccine but i,m afraid of this particular vaccine over the flu vaccine..i have not heard anything more than whats written above..
663774 tn?1297225152 Since her vaccine history is unknown, she should be vaccinated to keep herself protected as well as protecting your family. First, she should receive an initial feline distemper vaccine (FVR-CP) followed by a booster in about 3 weeks. She should also receive a Rabies vaccine with a booster in 1 yr. I would also recommend that she be tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS.
Avatar f tn Hello- I have recently gotten an hiv test which came back indeterminate. I am not a drug user and the last time I had unprotected (oral) sex was seven months ago. I have to wait to test again in a month. Four months ago I received my first shot of a series of three HPV vaccines. Three months ago, I received the following vaccine and I'm due to get the third vaccine in a few months. I also received a TB screen test about three weeks before the hiv test.
