Common Questions and Answers about Hiv cure coming

hiv

Avatar f tn Uh, yeah, I think you probably "heard" about it on this forum. Why don't you scroll down a few and read more, rather than taking the lazy way out and asking? Yeesh. What the hell does "...mutates so fast" mean?
Avatar m tn I saw something mentioning a blood transfusion as a potential cure and I was wondering if you could maybe look into that because you work at a hospital. This seems to be our best bet at this point. I have followed the forum every day for about a year, and I can't seem to find anything that helps too much. I'm also under the impression that EMF has something to do with it. Anyways, all the best man. Hopefully you find something that works for you!
Avatar n tn What would be easier to cure though... HIV or HSV in the coming years?
4355200 tn?1354596744 I think the next things your doctor will want to check are your genotype, to see if you need any vaccinations or HIV screening, possibly an ultrasound or a CT scan to look at your liver, and then possibly a liver biopsy (relatively painless and low risk) to further diagnose the health of your liver. At that point then your doctor will make recommendations to you regarding whether or not to treat your Hep C, and, if so, when.
Avatar m tn hbv cannot be a weapon anyway it is benigne on adults..... hiv is coming out as a fraud, never isolated and purificated so even tests producers say in the kits "this test cant diagnose hiv infection".
Avatar m tn A recent study in macaques has proven there may finally be a cure for HIV. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states they will present data from a similar study of macaque monkeys this week at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Boston, Massachusetts. Jonathan Mermin, director of the U.S.
Avatar n tn I have both HEPC and HIV, and there is tons of treatment options regarding medications for HIV. I have had HIV for over 20 years, and my viral load is always undetected or below 50 copies. I just finished my treatment for HEPC and was undetected at week 12 and 1 week post treatment. I am currently awaiting my 3 month.
Avatar m tn On June 30 2014 (21days from now) the Egyptian military will present a cure for HIV and Hepatitis C, I saw the machine it looks legit and they claim already 1000 patients have been already cured. This is a no joke, this is real and they are coming out on June 30 to the world. I am not sure if this machine works, but if it does work for HIV the chances it works for HSV is high, I am in Egyptian carrying HSV type 2, hope this machine or this new technology works.

Avatar m tn Two grants from the National Institutes of Health will allow Saint Louis University researchers to build on breakthroughs in understanding the hepatitis B virus and begin the search for a drug to cure – not just halt – the illness. Last year, John Tavis, PhD, professor of molecular microbiology and immunology at SLU published research demonstrating a way to measure and then block a previously unstudied enzyme, RNAseH, to stop the virus from replicating.
206807 tn?1331939784 As in the case of cancer and HIV more $ is going to find better treatments then finding a cure. But even a cure for those 2 are very daunting tasks that fail time and time again due to many factors. Overall I don't think we have much to worry about as our heath care system is better then in Liberia, as why you see the mass amounts of death.
Avatar m tn SVR (cure rate) WITHOUT Hepatologist: 66% (genotype 1 and 4) SVR (cure rate) WITH Hepatologist: 34% (genotype 1 and 4) SVR without Hepatologist (signficant liver damage): 25% SVR with Hepatologist: 69% -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- While the incredible difference in SVR rates is more than anyone would have guessed -- from what I've seen posted here over the past two years it doesn't surprise me that treatment outcomes would be signficantly
253566 tn?1219683299 Both agree that more and more data is coming back showing the long term problems with current treatment. The first one thinks that my liver is somewhat of a mess... the only consistent odd bloodwork is estrogen and it is just slightly elevated. Testosterone is usually fine. But doc#1 has me injecting testosterone to try to stop the estrogen. He feels that the estrogen may be building up in my body??? I have very very very bad gynecomastia and crazy weight/fat gain distribution.
Avatar m tn alright well i had unprotected oral sex. Everybody in the HIV forum said was extremely unlikely and pretty much impossible to get HIV through this manner and they said it was not necessary to get tested. I got tested anyway to cure my fear on the date in which i was supposed to after the exposure. it was a negative ( thank god). So low risk exposure + a negative HIV test = a happy me for a week. After that week, i started pulling hairs and my anxiety came back.
Avatar m tn that's why i ask the question as i am desperate for a cure, i'd like to know if there are any news on a good drug coming out as most trials have been disappointing lately. Also wondered if this cure being made can be used for us too but i strongly doubt it. http://www.thelocal.
Avatar m tn i saw the old post from http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Anxiety/HIV-Anxiety/show/1240105 (worriedtodeath104) do you think my problem and his are the same? no need to take test? even i took it already at 6 weeks in hospital, after intercourse with CSW (with condom). my problems is, when i already moved on with it, and then i got the second terror SMS.
Avatar f tn Which could quite possibly affect my 12 week result? The anxiety is coming from not being able to cure my vaginal thrush which has been diagnosed 3x this year. I still can't help but relate it to Possible false negative test.
Avatar f tn You obviously know what to do for OCD since you have faced your HIV irrational thought process head on in the past. You know the ways HIV is transmitted...the real facts and not the fictions. In your heart I'm sure you know that this scenario you have going on is a fiction made up by your own mind. You have what-iff'd and catastrophized the whole incident which as you know, OCD people are so good at. So no, I don't think you are infected. This person was not out to get you.
Avatar n tn Doc, I have had panic attacks for about six months now, which all started after i thought I had HIV after "doing it" with a former girlfrind. I dissected the entire web on HIV and checked out the sypmtoms flu, burning armits groin inflamed etc). Of course I had none of these symotomes initially but my mind kept "watching for them" and eventually they did develop. If I read of another symptom that developed as well.Was all anxiety based and guilt base ( I am married).
4309115 tn?1357609883 I haven't read anything about Gilead stopping their trials. Can you direct me to where you read this? I know that the new nuke PIs that are being trialled by Vertix, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Idenix have had a hold put on their trials by the FDA because of toxicity concerns (Read on HepatitisCentral site).
Avatar m tn http://www.hepb.org/blog/is-a-cure-for-hepatitis-b-coming-experts-say-yes/ Does it sound too optimistic? The biggest disappointment for this year was that Arrowhead ARC-521 drug was discounted because of toxicity. That's probably was the closet candidate to be released to the market. What's the next best potential candidate? Replicor are still having the phase 2b trial in Moldova, which will they release the results for it in September 2018.
264121 tn?1313033056 Since I'm having such insane problems with my red blood cell lines, this is also encouraging as it cites a long-term cure after successful treatment with the PegAlpha-2a alone as well as with the ribavirin. It causes me to be hopeful that should I need to reduce the riba at some point I've still got a good shot at a cure. The results of this study cannot (obviously) be extrapolated out as applicable to other forms of interferons or pegylated interferons. --> http://www.sciencedaily.
Avatar n tn (I have no abnormal discharge). She gave me a 3 day regim which seemed to cure the itchiness, but made the area more red and irritated. So then I got more guts and finally went to a gyno who cultured the red irritated area and checked it out. She told me that she saw nothing abnormal but saw some yeast. So there it was confirmed. A yeast infection of the skin surrounding my vagina. She gave me diflucan, in on pill to take and also gave me monistat 7 to use as well.
Avatar m tn In my opinion having sex with a HIV negative person is the only way to avoid any (Real/Theoretical or so called safe sex) risk, the reason I am saying this is even though you use a condom there are chances that it breaks (we come across so many posts on condom failure) How do you identify a HIV-ve partner as HIV has no face of its own, the best thing is to be faithful to your partner and before starting a new relationship (I mean sexual) be aware of your and your partners status (i.e.
Avatar n tn after 90 days i went to blood test center and gave the blood for hiv test,they said the result is hiv non-reactive with elisa tridot method.105 days after i give the blood for dna pcr test ,the result is negative.how many days it take to give the dna pcr result????? untill one month before this incidence i used antibiotics for two months for my ear surgery,after this incidence i used ten days ciproflaxcin is used for a small wound on my thigh.
Avatar m tn In 2009 I had 2 anal encounters (im on the recieving end) & it was unsafe. 2 weeks after . I endured high fever, soretroat, weakness, loss of breath, & such flu like symptoms that lasted 2-3 weeks . 3 months – 6months later I checked for HIV thru a pvt lab & the tests came out negative.
Avatar m tn Your own description of a ruptured condom is exactly right. Isn't it rather obvious? It is unlikely there will be a cure for HIV in the next 20 years. After that, who knows?
Avatar f tn I really hope it is a negative I got sick 15 days after the exposure worst days at first it calmed down but the fever kept coming and going so I went to the doc had a swab gave me bacterial pharyngitis gave me a shot and some amoxicillin I really didn't feel good but the strep was going away also tho I can't sweat anymore ever since I don't know what's going on in extremely stressed and need help
