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.

232778 tn?1217447111 s hard to figure any PI being as expensive to produce as IFN. India is producing the AIDS meds for pennies and the real cost of VX950 and SCH50304 will probably be on the same order. Doubtless Schering and Roche will inflate the price for the first few years to recoup the millions that have been extorted from them by the 'patent holders' of the HCV virus (i.e. the company that bought the company that bought the company that bought Chiron) - but hey, that's venture capitalism.

Avatar m tn they did test for everything except hepatitis b and herpes, because the Doctor said that she gonna give me hepatitis b vaccine. However, then nurse that toke the blood sample said i am not illegible for vaccine as it was protected sex. so i did not get tested for hepatitis b and i did not get the vaccine. and they told me to come back in 6 weeks to re do the test.

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 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.

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 m tn and another question, can the pharmas also create vaccine against the mutant strains? or they're so rare that making vaccine for these mutants are not cost-effective?
Avatar m tn Second one will be better, but since the vaccine comes first most of ppl will certainly go for it.

Avatar f tn Quick Question! I got the tdap vaccine. But my boyfriend doesn't has health insurance and called to ask about getting the vaccine to see how much it would be. They told him, but we aren't sure if we can afford it right now. Did everyone of your significant others get the vaccine as well? Just wondering if it is that important for him to get. My doctor said they recommend it, just wanted your advice. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
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.
