Common Questions and Answers about Hiv cure discovered


Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
163305 tn?1333672171 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 Because multiple STDs often go together, you aboth should be examined, including blood tests (syphilis, HIV) (not that I think there is a high risk for either, it's just routine). You both should be tested and examined as soon as possible. But if you weren't tested before treatment, you'll never know for sure about gonorrhea and chlamydia; once treated testing will be negative regardless.
Avatar n tn Potential cure for HIV discovered 06.28.07, 4:07 PM ET CHICAGO (Thomson Financial) - In a breakthrough that could potentially lead to a cure for HIV infection, scientists have discovered a way to remove the virus from infected cells, a study released today said. The scientists engineered an enzyme which attacks the DNA of the HIV virus and cuts it out of the infected cell, according to the study published in Science magazine.
Avatar m tn More evidence that Big Pharma is believing the time has come to cure HBV comes in the form of patent application WO 2011/047312 by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Indeed, the intended mechanism of action of GSK’s curative concept is the same as for ARC520 by Arrowhead Research: knockdown of the viral transcripts, particularly HBsAg and HBeAg.
253566 tn?1219683299 I am not keen to encourage people with non-specific or multiple symptoms to automaticaly blame them on treatment. The heading of the post was 'Cure' Disabled Me! The content of the post did not necessarily validate that very specific claim.
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 m tn 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.
1769355 tn?1319207762 Hallo',doctor,I really need help.I'm HIV from 1999,I was diagnosed in Italy But now I living in England(Hull).My CD4 are 400 more or less and I'm Actually in treatment with Prezista,norvir and truvada.I feel enought well but I should start the HCv therapy nex week.All I know about hep.c cure,I'd discvered here in the forum .Way my doctor don't tell me abaut genotypes, interaction with my inibithor of protease ,the possibility of triple therapy and the test IL28?iI'd discovered on myself.
Avatar m tn They've been working on a cure since HIV was discovered and to date there is still not a cure.
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 n tn My real concern though is that I can't stop wondering how likely it is that this person gave me HIV. On Nov. 4th I tested for HIV and Syphillis. The HIV test was the rapid blood test (finger prick). Both of those resulted in a negative finding. Nov. 4th was only 19 days after the possible exposure and I know the recommended time frame is to be tested at 3 months. I have been unbelievably stressed out about this (I am a long time hypochondriac) and I find myself worrying on a daily basis.
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....
1530342 tn?1405020090 com/blogs/lookout/first-man-functionally-cured-hiv-214038940.html Since HIV was discovered 30 years ago this week, 30 million people have died from the disease, and it continues to spread at the rate of 7,000 people per day globally, the UN says. There's not much good news when it comes to this devastating virus. But that is perhaps why the story of the man scientists call the "Berlin patient" is so remarkable and has generated so much excitement among the HIV advocacy community.
Avatar f tn cn) Chinese scientists claim possible breakthrough in HIV, hepatitis cure There's now hope at the end of the tunnel for patients with chronic viral infections, such as HIV and hepatitis B. According to an article published online by Nature magazine, Chinese scientists have identified a unique subset of virus-specific CD8+ T cells playing a pivotal role in the control of viral replication during chronic infection.
Avatar m tn It was a devastating denouement for anyone aware of the stakes--experts widely believe that a vaccine, if not a cure, is the only thing that can turn around the runaway HIV/AIDS pandemic. But like a thriller, this trial held one last plot surprise in store: People who had received the vaccine were in fact becoming infected with HIV at a higher rate than those in the placebo group.
Avatar m tn • HIV technique n°1 (HIV ½ gO – Abbott – Axsym) ………..……….. NEGATIVE • HIV technique n°2 (HIV Ag/Ac* – Combo – Abbott – Axsym)……..NEGATIVE * Ag = French abbreviation for antigen / Ac = French abbreviation for antibodies I Spent hours on the internet doing researches.
Avatar n tn OK first - 1 gm of azithromycin won't cure gonorrhea, and the dose you got of that will cure chlamydia and NGU, as will the doxy. You don't need to take both. The most preferred treatment for gonorrhea is rocephin. That's a shot, and if your gonorrhea test comes back positive, then you can get that shot. Refer your doctor to the CDC STD Treatment Guidelines.
220090 tn?1379170787 This is the reason it is possible to cure HCV with a PI, but HIV and HBV are not curable with PIs. The current PIs attack the Ns3 protease within the RNA and since they are very selective, the can't inhibit reproduction of all mutations of the virus; thus, SOC is required along with the PI. The newer PIs in early stages, attack a broader range and the polymerase inhibitors take an entirely different approach.
86075 tn?1238118691 From article: "...Researchers have discovered that cells in the mucosal lining of human genitalia produce a protein that "eats up" invading HIV -- possibly keeping the spread of the AIDS more contained than it might otherwise be..." ---------------------------------------------------- Interesting and thanks for posting. This may account for the significantly higher rate of transmission via anal sex.
Avatar m tn The hormone that holds key to HIV cure and other long-term infections, including hepatitis B and C The hormone that holds key to HIV cure By GATONYE GATHURA ***@**** Posted Saturday, February 5 2011 Scientists have discovered a treatment that could eliminate the Aids-causing virus from the system and allow the body to cure itself. It has been known that HIV’s persistent attack on the body overwhelms the defence or the immune system, eventually wearing down the white blood cells.
Avatar n tn You need to address your question to an HIV specialist or your doctor. This forum centers on HIV Prevention and risk assessment............we are not pharmacologists. I'm sorry I couldn't give you a more definitive answer, but your question is outside our knowledge base. I hope you find the answers your seeking.
4381298 tn?1353732525 It's not a cure,saliva can't do anything for the HIV virus in the body.It only destroys it in the mouth--this is why oral sex is not a risk.
1188975 tn?1264542203 what do u think about the progress of cure for hbv? it is known that the virus had been discovered late 60s, it s been more than 40 years and still i read the same drugs the same discussions, wont be there any progress we can hear??
Avatar m tn Hello, Two days ago I discovered a little cut on my upper lip, slightly to the left side of the lip. It is a little itchy and dry. I was wandering, is this a serious issue? What can I do to cure the cut?
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, 95.000$ but it exists.
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 I had night sweats 2 nights in a row and I just discovered a white bump on the roof of my mouth. Is this possibility an HIV infection? I know that the risk of acquiring HIV through oral-vagina sex is low but I really really need some reassurance. Can anyone direct me to a website or offer some good advice. I just checked my temp and it 99.
