163305 tn?1333668571 11 PM In a poetic turn of virology, the scientist who discovered hepatitis C in 1989 has now also discovered a vaccine that will hopefully cure the now-incurable disease. Not only is it poetic, it's an accomplishment that many thought was impossible. 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.
Avatar m tn Guess? Don't believe in anything unless an HIV cure really has been discovered and medically proven by a recognised health body.
Avatar n tn Is any more HIV testing required looking at my symptoms? Is there any subtype of HIV which could not have discovered by these tests. 2. Can there be any other sex disease which is causing these symptoms? What can those be, for which I have not been tested? 3. What other tests should I go for in order to find a cure for my problems? Thanks for your help and answers....

Avatar m tn Hbv and hcv are to different types of viruses. It is standard procedure to test hcv and hiv and hdv also when virus is discovered. Its not advancing to hcv . Also, for hcv there is a cure now, sure..is 95.000$ but it exists.
Avatar f tn In our country, Philippines. Having HEP B is like having a HIV. It is such a social discrimination. After i discovered i have the thesis i became depressed. Lazy to study knowing i don't have a chance of becoming a doctor someday because I'm a carrier of the disease. But I'm still hoping there a cure even if the world is telling me it's incurable I hope god will spare us from this disease. What should I do? I'm still a student.
Avatar m tn I recently rented out a room to a guy, who 3 weeks after moving in told me he was HIV+...which "has progressed to AIDS". Since I am straight, there is no chance of a health risk...right??? Needless to say, this makes me ( and the few friends I have confided in) a bit nervous, and VERY uncomfortable. I feel bad for this kid, but he has nonetheless put me in a very awkard position. I mean, am I obligated to tell my girlfriends when they come over? or do I hope nobody finds out?

Avatar f tn After giving the injection I had trouble activating the cover and it did not lock all the way. I discovered it it was not working but fear the needle may have pierced my gloves and skin. My skin did not appear to have any punctures, no bleeding (after squeezing), and even applied alcohol and nothing burned or felt open. Is this a risk? More about the patient, the area is know to have heavy hiv infected pt, and he did not appear sickly.

Avatar n tn One I know of was calling for human volunteers a few years ago -- it was working with proteins that had been discovered in lab animals to stimulate the animals to begin producing their own insulin when they were type 1 animals. The question being researched was whether people would respond the same way, by growing insulin-producing cells. Also, if this happened, they needed to see what would happen to those cells.
Avatar m tn HIV 2 wasn't discovered for a time after HIV-1. I'm curious to know how HIV-2 was discovered? Each type forms different type of antibodies. A person with HIV 2 would show negative on HIV-1 antibody test. Then how was HIV 2 discovered? Maybe one unlucky person got HIV 2 and develops aids and after serious complications, and after thorough analysis, doctors discovered the new virus? My concern is even with the rare subtypes and groups. How did we discover them in the first place?
Avatar f tn ve eaten if I ever feel sick or odd, so when I discovered a link to me eating FRUIT and the consequent flare up of boils I was in disbelief and ultra excited at the same time! I have eliminated fruit from my diet ( I compensate by eating a lot of vegetables) (and after a few trials)no longer get boils! I have been boil free for 7 months which is a miracle after what I've been through with them.

Avatar m tn HBV discovery is older than HIV, still there is no cure even like 20% . hbv is not as difficult as HIV there is no single HIV infected pt who recovered naturally but we hbvers we do, and it would have been better if they exploit that natural process. hbv is really very dangerious and it doesnt get its attention interm of awarness,better control and treatment in most part of the World.
Avatar n tn You need to see your primary care physician and get tested for those that give urethral symptoms. If something is discovered, you should be tested for all the STD's as often people contract more than one at a time. Until then, please do not have sexual intercourse or any sexual activity as you might infect someone if you are infected.
