Common Questions and Answers about Hiv cure trials


Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
Avatar f tn There is no practical information on vaccines as of yet, PReP and PeP and now PiP seem to be the best cure out there
Avatar m tn Appears released about a week ago, very recent...successful in mouse studies, next stop full animal trials, then clinical.
Avatar m tn "The new therapy works in two stages. Firstly, a vaccine helps the body recognise the HIV-infected cells so it can clear them out. Secondly, a new drug called Vorinostat activates the dormant T-cells so they can be spotted by the immune system.
Avatar m tn There are several years of animal trials, there are several years of human trials. There is years of examination of the data from the FDA.
1188975 tn?1264538603 check my old posts about alinia and DNA-BASED AMPHIPATHIC POLYMER/rapid HBsAg SEROCONVERSION the solution will come out slowly and for big pharma the best solution is an ativiral tx for life like on hiv i think the solution is close because all trials on new hiv/hbv antivirals have stopped on hbv on 2009 but only for hbv not hiv, also alinia on hbv seams to have been stopped it also looks very odd that there is an incredible number of trials on hcv now which is a small market compared to hbv
Avatar m tn magic johnson STILL very much his hiv. THERE IS NO CURE FOR HIV!!!!
Avatar m tn Do you think hbv science may use some knowledge/drugs from hiv studies ? As we know hcv cure, Solvadi is a drug which failed for hiv first. Amount of money invested in hiv market is huge if you compare it to the money spend on other diseases.
Avatar n tn Hard to tell if Metacavir was ever considered for HIV even though it belongs to the same class of drugs used to treat HIV. It is just that a Chinese drug company is do clinical trials with Metacavir for HBV. There are no published results of the trials, as far as I can tell, but there are rumours that it may soon be approved by the China's sFDA. Will keep you posted.
Avatar f tn nothing is currently awaiting fda approval that I"m aware of. not much of anything in trials right now either. is the website to look for clinical trials.
163305 tn?1333668571 Finally it seems like there is research to find a cure w/o that nasty interferon. Does anyone know about this and possibly have any information? First Candidate from SCYNEXIS Novel Cyclophilin Inhibitor Platform, SCY-635, Establishes Proof of Concept in HCV-Infected Adults Research Triangle Park, NC -- January 8, 2009 -- Drug discovery company, SCYNEXIS, Inc.
Avatar f tn What if a given company discovers certian drug that could completely cure hepB all of a sudden, as most scientific discoveries are done by some accident? Is that also going to take a very lengthy process to reach the market?
Avatar f tn Anyone know any trials for oral herpes cure? I heard that duke university had some positive news about possible cure not too fat away.
Avatar n tn t there clinical trials for that? I have ready several time that frozen thymus has an excellent cure rate, some people are cured with collidal silver. So why aren't we doing clinical trials on these cures?
Avatar f tn Hi there. I did a search on google for herpes trials and treatments and I came across an article on VivaGel and SPL7013. What I would like to know is if these treatments can potentially be a cure for herpes strain 2 (HSV-2)? If so, will these be effective if you have an established infection? (information was very scientific and to be honest I couldn't understand it all) Any advice on this would be appreciated.
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 m tn I have an appointment in 2 weeks. I'll ask if it's safe and If I can take part in it since one of the trials happens near me.
1689583 tn?1387752394 Let me elaborate further, I am hearing about these trials and thathte next breskthroughis coming soonwith no interferon and cutting cure rste to 4 weeks at almost 100% cure rate . I am new to hepc and I am still waiting to trest one more test to do that is opthamolgist in Janaury then discussion with doc on what treatment to do. I am going for the vic instead of incivik. Anyway thatis why I posted merely to get feed back from someone more knowledgeable in this area.
Avatar m tn I wonder how many years, once they find a cure, for it to be available to us. I know clinical trials takes very long. *sigh.... Just very anxious about this ordeal.
Avatar m tn We all know the cure is on way, what we hoping is that this cure will come soon on market.
Avatar m tn So we have more trials on entecavir more trials on tenofovir.
Avatar f tn Ah; Schering-Plough's next generation..... if that is it. Vertex has 2 2nd generation drugs also, as well as one from Boehringer Ingelheim, if I recall. I still hope the phrase is used as an adjective and not a compound name. ; ) You still have to find out which it is. If it is any of them I think you'll be in Phase 1 which may not produce a cure but could produce a resistant virii if one doesn't SVR.
Avatar f tn What Bill said. For now, read here...there are threads on alternatives... and elsewhere about helping your self. Some supplements can be very affective...they help me and can start with a high grade of Milk Thistle, ALA, NAC, Selenium( methyl-selenocysteine). good diet, etc. One can start with this protocol until you can find some other tx's...
Avatar m tn Here is a great article that will help one understand how RNAi is going to be a revolution for curing disease in the very near future and I believe will lead to the eventual cure of HBV in the coming years.
