Avatar m tn nl there are two labs one in europe and one in US.all the tests are made in europe but blood samples can be sent to new jersey US too just check all studies on cancer and gcmaf since there is a 100% cure rate on the small human trials made in the 90, this was for early stage 1 and 2 tumors of any type/organ.on terminal cancers stage 4 the success rate is less but there are some on gcmaf.
Avatar m tn Dear All, I read the CDC article about exposure through pre chewed food for infants. Apparently HIV mothers/fathers passed it to their infant babies through chewing food for them. How is this possible? I understand that passing the virus while its outside of the host is impossible. Should we feel at risk by eating in restaurants and elsewhere from similar scenarios...obviously no one chews our food, but what are the odds?
Avatar m tn I read about your previous posts about the same. But where I reside in Europe, HIV-DNA-PCR is a standard test for new healthcare workers and it is repeated every year or so. Not sure why, if it is not approved. Im hoping if someone has had an untreated infection 6mos/year back or a recent infection in 2 weeks, both would be detectable by HIV-DNA-PCR test.
29837 tn?1414538248 The recommendation to avoid cannabis is especially important in patients who are coinfected with HCV/HIV since the progression of fibrosis is already greater in these patients. "Hepatitis C is a major public health concern and the number of patients developing complications of chronic disease is on the rise," according to Norah Terrault, MD, MPH, from the University of California, San Francisco and lead investigator of the study.
Avatar f tn My skin is spread out in the chest, face and shoulders in a frightening way with itching in the skin and the mother in the pharynx. I am very afraid of my wife doctors in Iraq. He told me to prepare the surgery after a year and some of them told me that the examination is enough in three months.
Avatar n tn In 2007, I had several times sex with one female friend, not very familiar but I knew her having a fixed boyfriend. The first three were on 26th/Feb, 10th/Mar, and 26th/Mar and all of which, she gave a unprotected blow job to me and on the 26th/Mar, we did an unprotected sex for just 2 min. Then the fourth time happened on 1st/May, and there was sth. strange occured that I had a urethritis just two weeks after 1st/May, lasting 5 days. So I was very scared of getting HIV/AIDS.
Avatar n tn com San Francisco City Clinic They all agree in theory HIV transmission is possible with the right elements such as blood in the mouth of the giver. Also, I think that HIV education needs to wake up about one thing: circumcized men are in the MINORITY worldwide. Even in the United States, there is a substantial minority of uncircumsized men. Let's not forget that.
229411 tn?1189759425 I meant that "HIV does not cause AIDS" is a myth. This guy is doing so much damage to HIV/AIDS campaign. I hope his frustration continues.
Avatar m tn from Holland, Europe). In girl's room was only cold water. I washed penis with shampoo and cold water. Then girl told me that she got sick of HIV/AIDS eight (8) years ago and that she is still alive and taking medicines. (Girl never looked to me as sick: she has nice body and face, vital and strong, looks very healthy). Then I rushed to my hotel room. Trip duration half hour.
Avatar n tn Fifty-two were born in West Africa, 1 in Kenya, 7 in the United States, 2 in India, and 2 in Europe. The region of origin was not known for 15 of the persons, although 4 of them had a malaria-antibody profile consistent with residence in West Africa. AIDS-defining conditions have developed in 17, and 8 have died. These case counts represent minimal estimates because completeness of reporting has not been assessed.
Avatar m tn by the way hiv 2 in Africa is more than that in usa & Europe and the sw her language was French so I think that she isnot from south Africa and from a country where hiv2 is the more common is the antibody that the body produce is one antibody for both hiv1 &hiv2?
Avatar m tn were do you get these questions from, there are different strains of hiv and 2 types of hiv (hiv+1 and hiv+2) hiv+1 is the more common type which is normally found in people from europe and america whereas hiv+2 usually effects the african community!
Avatar f tn Welcome to the forum. Thanks for your question. My guess is your partner doesn't in fact have HIV, despite the comment of her "friend". In the US and Europe, HIV is pretty uncommon in 18 year old heterosexual women, even meth users. My advice is that you contact your partner directly. Most people don't lie about HIV status when asked directly; and you may find she is just as nervous about your sexual contact as you are.

Avatar m tn Thus condom protected sex with CSWs is considered as safe sex. Men who have sex with other men have more HIV in Western Europe an the Americas for two reasons. Their sex partners are more likely to have HIV therefore a person is more likely to be having sex with a potentially infectious partner. In addition, the risk for HIV infectoin is higher with rectal intercourse than with penile vaginal intercourse.
Avatar n tn Emm. That's right. As in hiv-vct.com and hiv-aids.cn, both operated by CDC people in China (not central CDC) and has some experts (doctors in hospitals that do TESTING - not treatment - who, I think, are like Bob in thebody in some sense) as moderator, I personally believe that the 6 week thing is fact. The question (6 week thing) has been posted thousands of times, and moderators there always answered they have never seen any case by themselves or via CDC internal reports.
Avatar n tn you are putting way too much time and energy into researching hiv/aids...which in turn ADDS FUEL to the fire of your anxiety. get off hiv/aids sites ! ! ! nothing that you can read right now will cease your worrying...only make you worry more. again...from what you have described, it is unlikely that you were infected. just test at the appropriate time.
Avatar n tn CRF A/E is prevalent in south-east Asia, but originated in central Africa. Subtype B is major contributor to HIV epidemic in USA and Europe. Subtype C is largely predominant in southern and eastern Africa, India and Nepal.
Avatar n tn If I used the better estimate of 1 in 1000, the calculation of your chance of having HIV becomes 1 in a billion instead of 1 in 100 million. Don't you understand that this is truly equivalent to zero???? THERE IS NO CHANCE IN THE UNIVERSE THAT YOU HAVE HIV. Let it go. If you cannot, you need to seek care from a mental health professional, which I suggest out of compassion, not criticism. This is my last comment on this thread.
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.

Avatar m tn I then went and spoke to HIV specialists who are on WHO board for HIV who have written books on HIV with expierience of decades in HIV.i spoke to pathologists at accredited labs and everywhere they said that 72 hours post infection PCR DNA and RNA will be positive 100% one doctor(not a pathologist) said 7 days it is 200%(his words).
Avatar m tn How could we not, as it was predicted on an almost nightly basis. And is still predicted. The name of the game in HIV/AIDS advocacy lo these many years has been to personalize the risks for *everyone* in America, heterosexual and homosexual alike. It loosens the purse strings, and also helps destigmatize this particular disease. It is far easier to drum up support if everyone believes they may be affected by this disease, rather than a few marginalized groups.
Avatar m tn Assume a low risk exposure, like a typical heterosexual exposure with a partner of unknown (but probably negative) HIV status. Say the odds someone acquired HIV were 1 chance in 100,000. Now assume a test is 95% accurate at 4 weeks and 99.9% accurate at 3 months. After a negative test at 4 weeks, the odds the person has HIV (despite the test result) is 0.00001 x 0.05 = 0.0000005. That's 5 in 10 million, or once chance in 2 million. That's so low to be considered zero.
Avatar m tn I am unaware of any data showing that heterosexual transmission in Europe is any more efficient in Europe than in North America. For Western Europe, I would expect the opposite to be true. On average, transmission risk may be higher in eastern Europe, especially the Balkans and former Soviet states; and it is higher in Africa.
Avatar n tn So you clearly have an immune deficiency condition that suggest AIDS, but I doubt that HIV is the cause. (Your very low risk for HIV, if your exposure history is correct, also suggests something else as the underlying problem.) In any case, it sounds like you have knowledgeable doctor(s) who probably know as much or more about these things as I do. And this forum emphasizes HIV prevention and initial diagnosis; we do not attempt to answer more complex diagnostic questions or management.
Avatar m tn It is used by all the Private HIV clinics in London and by the John Hunter Clinic at the Chelsea and Westminster (which has the largest cohort of HIV+ patients in Europe). You had it done at a reliable time after your non-risk so this should put all your residual fears to rest.
Avatar m tn About the use and test result of the MiraTes HIV HomeTest Is there any HIV present in the test and can I be infected by the test? There is no HIV present in the test and you cannot be infected by a new unused test.
Avatar n tn To break it down further, higher concentrations of HIV infected people are found in 3 major centers. As a matter of fact, over 80% of hiv infections in Canada have been diagnosed in these 3 geographic areas steadily since 1985. These centers also have the highest rates of IV drug users and a large gay population. Toronto also has the largest immigrant population, and they are noted in the data as from an Endemic country which accounts for the rise in HIV infections in most women.
Avatar m tn From the Freedomhealth point of view, using as described above the combined knowledge and experience of the team we regard the HIV DUO test as a conclusive HIV test at 28 days or beyond in almost all circumstances.
