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.
Avatar n tn Some sites mention that HIV can enter a cut or open wound. But they also say that saliva poses little to no risk. The SF AIDS foundations lists saliva as non-infectious, and has a note somewhere that it does not transmit HIV "regardless of how it gets into the bloodstream." The CDC says many bites have not resulted in HIV, but there is ONE record in 1997 of a person getting a bite being infected, and that it involved lots of tissue tearing and blood.
Avatar n tn Not dwelling here. Just forgot to ask you if there are any particular HIV research foundations, etc, that you feel are particularly worthy of donated money. If it is unprofessional for you to mention any certain groups here, I understand. Just giving it a shot.
Avatar f tn Much like the Homosexual stigma which originally accompanied HIV/AIDS. Thus IMHO it would seem that steps are: 1) Educate and change their perception of the disease. 2) Perform studies WHICH include incarcerated and homeless people to accurately access the extent of the disease in the population.
Avatar m tn Neither the Abbott RealTime nor the Roche COBAS AmpliPrep/COBAS TaqMan HIV-1 assay is intended to be used as a donor screening test for HIV-1 or as a diagnostic test to confirm the presence of HIV-1 infection.
Avatar m tn //www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/testing/resources/qa/be_tested.htm. ***** Here is the San Francisco AIDS foundations interpretation of this: he "window period" is the time it takes for a person who has been infected with HIV to react to the virus by creating HIV antibodies. This is called seroconversion.
Avatar n tn I'm going to drive down there and personally donate, then I'm going to start literally woo-hoo-ing. I swear, from here on out, I will always donate towards HIV/AIDS foundations. I've been fortunate enough to have many things in life, being HIV negative will top it all. In order to repay my debt, I'll do whatever I can so maybe one day, we'll see Teak woohooing louder (as Dr.Bob says) and wilder than a Banshee in heat.
Avatar m tn The Affordable Care Act prohibits health insurers from discriminating against people on the basis of age, gender or health conditions, and the federal government has already made it clear it will monitor health plans sold on the public exchanges to ensure they meet ACA standards. The not-for-profit AIDS Institute examined silver-level health plans that were sold on Florida's insurance marketplace in 2015.
475555 tn?1469307939 HCVet- You should consider partnering with the HIV/AIDS community not pitting one diseased group over the other. The HIV community is better organized, has many more political relationships, more lobbyists, a good understanding of how to run fundraising and media campaigns, and all the contacts to do it. Since HCV has become a recognized health problem in the HIV community they have been very receptive about partnering with the HCV org I worked with for years.
Avatar m tn Hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver transplants, HCC, etc, are not included in the Fair Foundations calculations, whereas the numbers the Fair Foundation quotes that spent on HIV/AIDS, do include these numbers. I believe it is not fair to present a view of a Government Department that creates an illusion that those suffering from HCV are being short changed.
475555 tn?1469307939 com/metro/content/metro/stories/2006/09/09/0910MESHcdcmorale.html when Congress decided to fund HIV/AIDS, an industry emerged. Like other industries, the HIV/AIDS industry is attempting to grow. Its growth strategy is to control the HCV epidemic. Notable, "generalizing" deadly bloodborne pathogen diseases, like HCV, enforces HIV non-profit's purpose for its mission above public health needs.
Avatar n tn yes that would be the best option, CFS researcher made the same thing since many governments are trying to hide XMRV virus which is actually more spread than hiv and a real cause of aids. by the way is rep9ac compound public, if there is apatent it should be?if so any advanced biolab can make it like it happened for gcmaf, especially where there is no patent coverage.
1227909 tn?1267857079 In co-infected people the stats are staggering, there are over 20 biomarkers all indicating that the presense of HCV accerated the progression from HIV to AIDS at an alarmingly faster rate, ergo the virus effects how all else works, or doesn't work to be more presise. in HCV alone, higher VL has been shown to decommission the endocrine system much faster which in turn produces the inflammation famous for our dimise...
Avatar f tn I'm also wondering if there's some website that might tell me where the various candidates stand in their past support of HIV, since I figure that if they have a good history with supporting HIV/AIDS research that they might care about HCV. Anyway, any info would be appreciated. I hope that this will not end up being a debate because that's not what I'm looking for. Happy Holidays everyone.
Avatar m tn I too was in a Xolair trial that was very successful. I had my normal life back for 6 months. After the trial, the hives came back in full force. I contacted "Genentech Access Foundations." My doctor completed all of the paperwork and we submitted a request for Xolair again. I got a call that it was approved this time. Please don't give up. Be persistant and talk with Genentech. There has to be a way to continue the injections.
1323357 tn?1274826939 But if you simply accept him no matter how difficult that may be, and how persistent the bully may be it will eventually stop. Some people who wear visual aids like glasses and contacts have noted that the stress of DP can be reduced by removing them for a while. I wear contacts myself, and found that removing them did in fact produce a calming effect. Why is this? Because by blurring your vision, you are reducing the amount of information that is being received by your visual cortex.
1199040 tn?1265239024 This disease mirrors the Aids epedemic, I truely believe this will be worse, because most are asytematic, till years later. I had elevated liver functions for 30 years ,I finally got through to my primary care person to do further tests that resulted in fining my Hep-C.
