Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids vaccine trials


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.
Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
Avatar m tn He said that in 4 years they MIGHT have a therapeutic vaccine for HIV to be given to infected people. This will NOT prevent infection and will NOT be a cure. We are not even close to anything of that sort.
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 also of note is Admedus received approval to go to Phase 2 clinical trials for their HSV2 vaccine around Xmas last year. They expect interim results sometime this year. Dr. Cullen at Duke is commencing mouse trials for a cure: http://cullenlab.duhs.duke.
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 m tn so far theirs no cure for hiv/aids there trying it on monkeys atlease thats what ive heard
Avatar f tn 6 million ($49 million) in a European IPO, earmarking its new cash to push a hepatitis B vaccine into pivotal trials and hit the gas on an HIV drug. Abivax has registered about 2 million shares on the Euronext Paris exchange, setting aside another roughly 300,000 for its underwriters. The biotech will be placing shares through June 22, expecting to price them at a midpoint of €21.30 ($23.91) each. If Abivax's overallotment allocation comes through, the company could gross €57.
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 There is no year in the date, so I am not sure when the article was written and I found another article from 2010 saying that a widely followed GSK vaccine failed in its trials. I am not sure if these two are the same drug. Do you know anything about the vaccine that is described in the ABC news article?
Avatar m tn Recent trials on animals have shown it is between 85 and 100 per cent effective at blocking HIV and Herpes transmission. 4. Astellas ASP-2151 The most promising of the long-awaited Helicase Primase Inhibitors (HPI) drugs. And I really mean long-awaited. This is like super-acyclovir, and there's been some speculation that it could inhibit the virus so effectively that asymptomatic shedding may not be an issue. 5.
Avatar f tn I just read that Maryland may have a potential cure and is trying to get the FDA's approval to start trials in January next year. I know it's going to take a while but I pray that trials are successful because I am so ready to be done with HIV. I've always had faith since I've been diagnosed that a cure would come about but I will still prepare myself for the worst.
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 f tn Hi, I am 18yrs old and was just diagnosed with the herpes virus this past Thursday. I contracted the virus just a couple weeks prior to that and had an outbreak the following day or so. It was small and seemed to only be a cut, allergic reaction to a new soap, or infection on the lip of my vagina like from shaving but apparently it was more. I also believe as well as having genital I also have oral.
Avatar m tn It was actually two trials. hiv and hep c vaccination. But no clue if attenuated live particles were used. Also a concern for a carrier type that just did not seroconvert. Just don't know what the vaccine consisted of.

Avatar n tn Some diseases are harder to develop a vaccine for than others. Since Coronavirus behaves, in the body, like the flu, the foundation of knowledge to develop that vaccine already exists. Also, I think most people would agree that a vaccine for a disease (Coronavirus) that is highly infectious and has killed nearly 1400 people already this year is more urgent than a vaccine for a virus that isn't deadly.
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 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.
