Common Questions and Answers about Hiv cure treatment


Avatar m tn Is that true that a tablet has invented to cure HIV. I read it in article and it`s name was like truvada or something. I cant remember exactly the name.

Avatar f tn I know it is stupid, but living in my abstinence bubble lead to me slacking in vigilance. My question is, is there a treatment i can take within 24hrs to cure any possibilty of contraction? and what is it called? please help, i cant sleep.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum and I'm sorry about your diagnosis. Only treatment can CURE HCV not herbs. And niether an ultrasound nor liver enzymes will indicate the extent of your liver damage, only a biopsy can do that. Most people have no symptoms even when their liver damage is severe. I don't know about your genotype (I am/was 1a), but I don't think your Dr can predict your treatment length either. There are, however, other drugs coming out in a few years.
Avatar m tn After given for 24-48 weeks, this treatment resulted in a sustained virologic response (a marker for cure), defined as undetectable HCV RNA in the patient's blood 24 weeks after the end of treatment in 50%–80% of patients (with higher SVR among persons with HCV genotypes 2 or 3 infections versus infections with HCV genotype 1, the most common genotype found in the United States).
Avatar f tn Rapid treatment after HIV infection may be enough to "functionally cure" about a 10th of those diagnosed early, say researchers in France. They have been analysing 14 people who stopped therapy, but have since shown no signs of the virus resurging. It follows reports of a baby girl being effectively cured after very early treatment in the US. However, most people infected with HIV do not find out until the virus has fully infiltrated the body.
Avatar n tn but whenever I try to research a cure for HSV I find nothing. I am thankful for the treatment, but is an actual cure for HSV likely in the near future??
Avatar n tn However, the new drug VX-950 is showing tremendous promise with close to a 100% cure rate for genotypes 1a and 1b, the hardest to cure. I am a 1b who failed standard treatment three times, once with just interferon, the second time with Pegylated Interferon and Ribavirin, and last year with Infergen and Ribavirin. However, I do see lots of people on these boards getting cured with current treatments, including Infergen, meaning the virus is UND (undetectable) in their blood.
1028452 tn?1537452084 TURMERIC (Curcumin) Is showing promise in many areas ranging from anti oxidant activity, to anti cancer properties, lowering cholesterol, protection of the cardiovascular system and HIV. Doing a search on Medline shows positive research results on various forms of cancer from oral to colon and breast cancers. Ayurvedic uses widely range from anemia, arthritis, blood purification, digestive disorders, skin disorders and inflammatory conditions.
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 m tn There is no cure known to medical science as of today for HIV. The available treatment, called Highly Active Anti Retroviral Therapy (HAART) is a cocktail of various medicines only prescribed by experts for the patients living with HIV, after examining the progression, helps keep their viral load at minimal and CD4 counts at a reasonable level so that he can survive longer, though his post infection health condition is not as good as a normal person has.
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 Abstract Nucleos(t)ide analog therapy blocks DNA synthesis by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) reverse transcriptase and can control the infection, but treatment is life-long and has high costs and unpredictable long-term side effects. The profound suppression of HBV by the nucleos(t)ide analogs and their ability to cure some patients indicates that they can push HBV to the brink of extinction.

107513 tn?1232290064 While some of these issues are controversial -- in and out of the medical community -- I think many of us appreciate hearing what one of the leaders's of Hep C research and treatment -- Dr. Schiff-- has to say. There indeed is a stigma to this disease and sometimes I think we in the Hep C community are inadvertently guilty of fostering it ourself.
Avatar m tn ok ive seen all over the news that there is new treatment going on for hiv, and also gamers found a cure for hiv. just wanted to know whats really going on? did we find a cure? can people live real normal lives with hiv? How has it changed since the 80's? i just want knowledge on this...
Avatar m tn So I would not say HIV is made up. And thanks god that they found a treatment plan with bone marrow transplant that seems to cure people of it, those that can afford this procedure done.
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 HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar m tn Recently, read an interesting article about a man - positive with Aids -who had a bone marrow treatment and apprently appears to be hiv negative. ( 20 months after suregery ) The following url will take you to the story. Just wanted to share this in the event any party on this site with hiv/aids or not, may not know this exciting medical information. Now that Bush is gone, let's hope Obama takes the lid off the jar and opens the kitchen for stem cell research.
Avatar n tn I know it it unlikely icontracted anything, but if i did would these two drugs be sufficient to cure anything i could have caught (e.g. chlamydia, Gonorrrhea etc etc? Have had no symptoms at all.

Avatar n tn And of course get tested for HIV. Most gay men with syphilis also are HIV infected.
Avatar n tn I understood that kp-1461 is not toxic in the long period and therefore FDA permit the first patient to going on with kp-1461 ( longer than 124 days ), it means that VDA drug is controlling the viremia abosolutely. Anyway, Elmer believes that this new treatment approach may shake up all the hiv drugs market. IT IS VERY ENCOURAGING Please note the opinion regard the bigpharma and FDA.... THEY ARE PLANNING TO RUN ELSEWHERE, ARGENTINA TOO...
Avatar n tn 4 million units. To ensure cure also put on 30 day course of doxycycline 100mg q12. No labs done. Resolution of painless chancre in 2 wks. Did not treat partner. Did not tell partner. Three months ago with new chancre. This time told partner. Treated appropiately with LA Bicillin for 3 wks. Partner treated with one dose. Visited ID doctors. Labs: HIV neg., HSV 1 titers pos. (hx. of herpes labialis), HSV 2 titers negative, GC/Chlamydia negative, and RPR negative.
Avatar n tn Doxycycline 100mg BD 3 days Colourless discharge still on, but in very small quantity. Is the line of treatment OK. How long should I take Doxy. When will I cease to be carrier of STD. When one should be checked up for HIV after exposure?
