Hiv aids mortality rate

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids mortality rate


Avatar m tn s entire immune system with chemotherapy and radiation and carries a 30 percent mortality rate. The prospect is so daunting that one doctor joked to the New York Times that he'd rather just take antiretrovirals for the rest of his life.
134578 tn?1693250592 Even Dr. Fauci called the difference in the mortality rate "not statistically significant," it wasn't like it was being touted as a miracle. And the market didn't leap to buy Gilead stock at a frantic rate. But I think it jumped in general because people were so pleased to hear something undisputably positive (even if small) rather than "we don't have enough information yet to know.
Avatar n tn Ringe and his group reviewed the medical literature published since 1989, including anecdotal reports and substantial surveys, in an attempt to update the worldwide living donor mortality rate. Their goal was to assess the accuracy of the information assigning certainty levels to each source identified.
Avatar m tn /=40 g/day) and were not genotype 3, indicated no strong evidence of excess mortality. We found little evidence of excess mortality in hepatitis C infected patients who were not cirrhotic, in the absence of selected risk factors. Our findings emphasize the importance of providing appropriate preventive advice, such as counselling to avoid alcohol intake, in those infected with HCV.
Avatar f tn The higher the score the less chance of survival, the higher the mortality rate. In interpreting the MELD Score in hospitalized patients, the 3 month mortality is: * 40 or more — 71.3% mortality * 30–39 — 52.6% mortality * 20–29 — 19.6% mortality * 10–19 — 6.0% mortality * <9 — 1.
Avatar m tn They followed patients for two years. Those that were not cirrhotic or coinfected had no higher a mortality rate than the general population. Well, isn't that exactly what you would expect? If you are not cirrhotic, it's extremely unlikely you will die of liver disease within a two -year time frame. You need a much longer study to examine this issue.
Avatar f tn Hello I am a 17 year old heterosexual women living in one of the countries with the lowest rate of hiv (Morocco) i'm a virgin and never really had sex , but one day i was making out with a guy that i knew he was hiv negative because he was studying in canada a country that had hiv restrictions , he tried to penetrate me but i didn't let him so he kept rubbing his genitals against mine , i felt a little bit of pressure , then he started doing the same on my anus he wanted to go in but i
Avatar n tn For elderly patients with aortic stenosis undergoing nonemergency valve replacement in recent years, the perioperative mortality rate is reported to be as low as 4 to 5%, and the surgical mortality rate is 5 to 10%, even if heart failure is present. The perioperative mortality rate is higher for patients undergoing aortic valve replacement combined with CABG than for those undergoing aortic valve replacement alone (4 to 6% for patients in their mid-70s, 10% for patients in their 80s).
Avatar m tn s a bit too soon to know if that prediction is truly accurate -- after all, we are only ~35 years into the known HIV/AIDS epidemic, and only 15 years into truly effective anti-HIV treatment. Therefore, the current predictions will have to be proved by the actual experiences of people diagnosed in the past several years, treated aggressively, and followed for the next 30-50 years.
Avatar f tn It depends on which form of supraventricular tachycardia someone suffer from, and more important, if someones heart is healthy or not. A healthy heart can usually tolerate supraventricular tachycardia without problems, and usually even ventricular arrhythmias without problems. An unhealthy heart can get problems with a rapid heart rhythm, through different mechanisms.
Avatar m tn Overall, HCV-infected individuals had a mortality rate 3 times higher than that of the general population (SMR = 3.0 for both men and women). The number of deaths from unrelated medical causes and suicide in the study cohort was close to the expected number of deaths in the general population. Neal et al also identified several predictors of mortality by assessing multivariable logistic regression analyses. Factors associated with liver-specific mortality included age (hazard ratio [HR], 1.
Avatar f tn [3][4] Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantation). In addition, hospital-related infections in patients not previously considered at risk (e.g., patients in an intensive care unit) have become a cause of major health concern. C.
446474 tn?1446347682 Patients whose AFP levels reached 1,000 ng/mL had a 12% one-year survival rate and only a 1% five-year survival rate. These patients had an adjusted hazard ratio (HR) of mortality of 4.35 compared with HCC patients with AFP levels below 10 ng/mL. Furthermore, patients’ mortality risk grew incrementally with increasing AFP levels: mortality risk was 1.50 (95% CI, 1.22-1.83) in patients with AFP levels between 10 and 100 ng/mL and 2.23 (95% CI, 1.80-2.
Avatar m tn my friend, a guy who had an unprotected vagina sex with a net-friend~~I told him my experience of Fear of AIDS..and then he also fear of AIDS....But i told him it's a low rate to get the HIV even having unprotected sex with a hiv taker..I also told him the rate is only 1/1000..but he just thought he will be the 1 not the rest of 999... And he told me only this time, he didn't use the condom...and he said he never had STDs or sth...
Avatar m tn YES you should and you should ignore people like Gary L Glum because he's full of you know what.HIV/AIDS is real and so is HIV testing.These HIV/AIDS denialists don't have a clue and they have blood on their hands.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the HIV forum. You describe a low risk exposure, except that you don't mention one potentially significant factor -- your and your partner's race/ethnicity. The rate of HIV is far higher in African Americans than in whites or persons of other race/ethnicities in the US. The low rate of AIDS in your geographic area should indeed be reassuring -- but the statistics you quote deserve some caution.
Avatar m tn excuse my ignorance, bt was is histo, i take this is a disease through hiv/aids (opportunistic) as they say.
Avatar n tn I am freaking out that i have hiv/ aids since prostitutes are not people i trust and she may have very well had hiv/aids. What are my chances of getting Hiv/aids in this situation? i also heard that its very rare to get hiv/aids on single sexual encounter, is that true? what other STDs am i at risk for and what tests should i get done?
Avatar m tn I have read many conflicting things on the internet about the asymptomatic time period of hiv, I have read the average amount of years before you develop AIDS without treatment is 10 years. What is the average amount of time before most people know they have hiv (develop symptoms that alert them) and does this differ by age at time of infection. Do people in their 20's differ from those in their 40's 50's and even 60's?

Avatar m tn I'm thinking of having an Esophagectomy and from what I read about this procedure really scares me. Had surgery before but nothing like this and I'm wondering if it's really worth the risk. Having a feeding tube hooked to an intestine after surgery doesn't sound like much fun and still having a chance of choking is what I'm trying to get away from. I discussed my questions with the surgeon and he said I was the most negative person he talked to all day.
Avatar m tn htm Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Including HIV Infection, Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, consistent and correct use of latex condoms reduces the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including diseases transmitted by genital secretions, and to a lesser degree, genital ulcer diseases.
