Avatar f tn Dear Vance,teak,howardh,nursegirl and all the experts of the forum few days ago i was having a normal discussion over the HIV topic with few of the medical representatives and they were saying that now a days medical science is so advance that a cure for hiv and AIDS is there but medicine giants are not issuing it out just because a huge amount of money they have invested in treatment of HIV and AIDS so they are restricted to reveal it for the public interest whereas few were saying that cure o
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.
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 Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
Avatar n tn Vaccine Campaigns May Be The Cause of New AIDS-Like Disease in Asia and Drug Resistant HIV Affecting Africa Researchers have identified mysterious new symptoms that have left scores of people in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa with an AIDS-like disease and drug-resistant HIV respectively. Coincidentally, vaccine trials took place in several regions in both continents. The patients' immune systems become damaged, leaving them unable to fend off germs as healthy people do.
163305 tn?1333668571 Because hepatitis C is more virulent than HIV, no one was confident a vaccine against all the various strains around the world could be developed. But Michael Houghton, the University of Alberta researcher who announced his work today at the Canada Excellence Research Chairs Summit in Vancouver, says his vaccine works against every known strain of the virus.
Avatar m tn Hi, Anti HAV antibody is a test for Hepatitis A antibody not HIV. If you dad had a vaccine or past infections for Hepatitis A it would be positive for IgG antibody and negative for IgM. So, if he had the vaccine he is immune to Hepatitis A. If he didn't have the vaccine he was exposed to in sometime in his life (in the past) and is immune to the virus and is not sick now and won't transmit it to his family or friends. No this is not in any way a test for AIDS.
Avatar f tn I fully respect your comments about vaccine's and believe that every parent has the right to choose what their child gets or doesn't get. I just wanted to make an off-topic correction to your comment about blood transfusions and how they aren't scanned thoroughly for diseases. I work for an HIV/AIDS clinic and it is now rare to get HIV (not AIDS) from a blood transfusion. It happened a lot in the 80's and early 90's because there wasn't proper testing.
Avatar m tn so far theirs no cure for hiv/aids there trying it on monkeys atlease thats what ive heard
Avatar n tn My son who up to 3 months ago was sharing needles (Herion Addiction) just had his 3 month blood work done for HIV and HEP. Thank God, all came back negative. However, his Hep B Surface Ab # was 1.79. He's 23 years old. I'm his father and I had the same test done and my number was <0.1 He's had no other risks since getting off of drugs in October. What's the difference in numbers tell me?
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 n tn ve been stung by needle from a homeless person, and usually those are transmitting deseases like HIV or Hepatitis, I went to the hospital and they made for me anti tetanus shot and the next day they gave me also Hepatitis vaccine, that was on the 20th of August, now I am just paranoid about aids and i got 2 itchy spots one on my arm and the other on my lap, had after 12 days of the vaccines inflamation of lymph gland under my arms and the one from under the left hand was hurting me...
3230925 tn?1397615965 EDMONTON (CUP) — A University of Alberta team has made a breakthrough in hepatitis C research, creating a vaccine that could potentially combat all forms of the liver-destroying virus. The vaccine was developed by Michael Houghton, a U of A researcher who first identified the hepatitis C virus in 1989. The vaccine exposes the human body to a non-infectious sub-unit of the hepatitis C virus in order for the body to develop antibodies.

Avatar m tn Until recently I was very uneducated on the reality of transmission of HIV. Unfortunately I had limited non-scare tactic education on the matter. If Teak, Lizzie, Vance, or anyone who is knowledgable could provide answers or cite where I could research the answers that would be helpful. 1.). What affect if any does Subtype (ex B vs CRF A/E) have on modes/ means of transmission? 2.) Does subtype affect which cells are more likely to be targeted in the event of transmission? 3.
Avatar f tn finally at 82 days I have went ICTC centre Mumbai where they have tested me for HIV and syphilis both came negative.. COMB AIDS test was used..
Avatar f tn 3. I read the France news they say they already find the AIDS therapeutic vaccine, is that real ? If yes is that means HIV can be Treatment soon?
1032715 tn?1315984234 Yes preventative research in this area is crucial. Clearly there is a genetic basis to this and there should be further means to understand and prevent alcoholism and substance abuse in general. There is ongoing research as regards preventative vaccines for specific forms of substance abuse but as with all research it will take a while for safe and effective treatments to be available as it is in its early stages:
Avatar f tn Grace, I was reading through some older posts and I have seen that you stated Dr. Halford was doing some interesting research on a vaccine but it was a risky but it was using a live virus. I was wondering if you have any updates on his research? It was mentioned in a post late in 2011. I have tried to find some information online without sucess. Any ideas on the outcome of this? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn My colleague does HIV research not counseling. He started a research lab in my country to study some people who are immune to TB or who received the BCG vaccine.Americans don't use this vaccine but he is hoping that if he does a good job on the research he can present the results to the scholars here. He thinks there is something to be discovered with these people who seem to be immune for HIV. I had a little HIV scare a little while a back and everyone was saying you are not at risk.
Avatar n tn uncompetent immune system is the one from aids people, aids with no hiv due to drugs addiction or alcool addiction, or depressed immune system by steroids, chemio or anti rejection transplanted people......
Avatar m tn Neuropathy caused by HIV would only occur as HIV progresses to AIDS. This would not happen within a few months of contracting HIV, even if you had, against all astronomical odds, contracted HIV.
Avatar n tn Is anybody familiar with this therapeutic vaccine which is apparently available in russia? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn - have a damaged spleen or no spleen - have sickle-cell disease - have HIV infection or AIDS - have cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma - have nephrotic syndrome - have had an organ or bone marrow transplant - are taking medication that lowers immunity (such as chemotherapy or long-term steroids). When a second dose is given, it should be given 5 years after the first dose. Here is a Vaccine Information Statement with more information: http://www.cdc.
