Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids research


Avatar m tn 10 to 15 years ago, HIV/Aids was considered to be a deadly condition. But in 2021, it is not addressed the same way. And, according to a new research article they confirm that patients who have the virus can marry and even have children. And, they mention that untraceable level of the virus is equal to untransmissible status. Further, when I was going through some articles, I read there are 2 cases of complete cure of HIV as well.
Avatar f tn This child is 14 and has been HIV positive since birth. Her mother recently passed away from aids and a family member of mine is considering taking her in. I have concerns about this child being around my children and my nieces and nephews. Are my concerns unfounded??
1530342 tn?1405016490 Dec 1st marked the 25th anniversary of World AIDS Day, a time when the president urges Americans to come together in support of those affected by HIV/AIDS, and continue the commitment to a world free from the disease. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton echoed President Obama’s views. “We have set the goal,” she said. “We know it is possible. Now we have to deliver.” How optimistic should we be about efforts to combat HIV/AIDS? http://tv.msnbc.
Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have legit info. or websites that deal with the timeline of the HIV/AIDS onset to diagnosis? I have seen that seems a legit source. They state that 3 weeks (or 21 days) is the "average" time for seroconversion. Are there other websites that would refute this? Understanding that not all persons infected with HIV would undergo ARS, if those that do, do indeed go through ARS and have symptoms, what is that timeline?
Avatar n tn If the condom does not fail, what is the likelihood that the male using the condom will become infacted with the HIV virus from an HIV positive woman? And... Where is the research (link please) that this is based on? 2. Is it possible to get HIV from a hand job if the woman giving you the hand job is HIV positive and has a cut on her hand?
Avatar m tn Are there any organizations doing research on HIV negative AIDS? Can you advise any further tests for me? Thank you.
Avatar m tn Should he need to undergo multiple tests to conclude the result. Also is PCR test is efficient test among all HIV test as it picks the Virus directly rather than HIV Antibodies? Pls give your thoughts on this.
Avatar f tn Greetings doctor I am actually doing a research paper on HIV for school and with so much info online from one end of the spectrum to the other I figure I would ask a specialist directly a few questions so here it goes... 1-with testing now a days would you consider 6-8 weeks conclusive? 2-do you believe rapid tests are just as reliable as lab based? 3-do you feel oral rapid tests are just as good as blood? 4-what are the most common symptoms you see with onset of HIV?
Avatar n tn The allergist told me I have Candida which people can get after antibiotics and colon problems. I decided to do some more research on the subject and everywhere I turn I see hiv/aids. Im pretty sure I have Candida due to the coated tongue, eczema (I havent had ezcema before), spit test, yeast in blood sample etc, but the hiv/aids?????

Avatar f tn you get HIV, after few years develop AIDS, no? So if you don't develop AIDS, you don't die early, right? I'm asking because from what I read here, you seem to know this stuff. Thanks.
Avatar f tn but i have heard that body fluid can enter the body through skin is it possible that can u have aids?
Avatar m tn Marijuana may protect the immune system against HIV and slow disease progression New evidence that chronic intake of THC, the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, can protect critical immune tissue in the gut from the damaging effects of HIV infection is reported in AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available on the AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses website.
Avatar n tn You might want to do a little research, because just as HIV/AIDS, herpes antagonizes the immune system- thus weakening it overtime. Things that a normal immune system could fight off, such as yeast, it soon develops and inability to fight off efficiently, in some people. So you could very well have a yeast problem at the root related to some other STD such as HSV or it may be related to the pills you are taking.
Avatar m tn Why is it they give HIV patients a PI drug to keep the aids virus in remission but not HVC patients.Isnt this form of maintence? .I think they should be giving it to people who have HVC and did not respond to the PI drugs because what else is left?...Maybe one day they will use the PI as maintenance for the ones who dont respond to SOC and PI drugs.Ive heard of aids people liiving a lot longer now because of the PI`s too.Some are with aids for 25 years and still doing ok.
