Common Questions and Answers about Hiv hiv vaccine virus


Avatar m tn Personally there is a Vaccine currently in Phase 1 Trails that was recently Approved by the FDA which in a sense is a major step for any Vaccine. This Vaccine uses a Whole HIV Virus instead of little bits of it. There is also a Heavy Duty Vaccine (Genes) in the pipeline as well. We also need to Focus Prevention Methods on the hardest hit the Gay community. We need to have a Aggressive safe sex promotion and Widespread HIV TESTING.
Avatar f tn There is no cure but there is some good news concerning a HIV vaccine from the States. Basically, while still at research level, this has been tested on monkeys and could lead to a 8 month HIV resistance vaccine. Look up the BBC science website for more information. Let's keep our finger's crossed.
Avatar f tn The blood supply in the US is screened for HIV and Hepatitis B and C and maybe West Nile virus too. Also, you can't get it from the flu vaccine. As for the western blot, I'm not sure about that. Hopefully, your doctor will contact you soon.
Avatar m tn Information of HIV subtypes is important to scientists as we track the virus and its spread and work to understand how it evolves so that we can make progress towards development of an HIV vaccine, something that research is working hard to discover. The publications on HIV subtypes however have no relevance to your situation or test results. Please do not be distracted by the ramblings of a paranoid person over reacting to scientific data that they do not understand.
Avatar m tn no vaccine for hiv. Go to ART centre immediately without wasting time and take prophylactic dose for 28 days continuosly to minimise risk to acquire hiv. Vaccine for hbv doesnt works if u are already exposed to it.
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 f tn However i realised before one week was over and got 3injections with human immunoglobulin medicine that prevents the virus from invading the body to people who are -ve.I have also been taking chinese herbal medication to prevent the virus from replicating in the body. I have not had any symptoms and now its been one month.I took a test immediately and anothe two weeks later and both were -ve.I was however adviced to take another test 3months later to make sure that i dint contract the virus.
Avatar n tn Is anybody familiar with this therapeutic vaccine which is apparently available in russia? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar f tn Warts are usually harmless but can be embarrasing.If they bleed there is risk of HIV infection. Genital warts are spread by skin-to-skin contact and during vaginal, anal, or oral sex play. You may discuss with your doctor about HPV vaccine for you. Avoid skin to skin contact. Using condoms can reduce the risk of transmission. You may seek medical assistance and get your doubts clarified. I sincerely hope it helps. Take care and best luck!
Avatar m tn The throat infection is not caused by HIV and you have the test to prove that.
Avatar m tn Dont ne idiot There lots of other viruss For example ebv or cmv have same symptoms as hiv What i learn 6 months negative is end of it.
Avatar n tn BANGKOK – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible. The World Health Organization and the U.N. agency UNAIDS said the results "instilled new hope" in the field of HIV vaccine research.
Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By killing or damaging cells of the body's immune system, HIV progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections and certain cancers. People diagnosed with AIDS may get life-threatening diseases called opportunistic infections, which are caused by microbes such as viruses or bacteria that usually do not make healthy people sick.
Avatar m tn I understand you are frustrated but nobody will gurantee you are not infected or protected. First, how do you know if that person has hep b? What about hiv? So far you did the right thing to get vaccinated But only time will tell. Do STD testing in a month or two. This will tell you for sure if you have to live the consequences or you simply dodged the bullet.
Avatar f tn Hi, there is no exact time calculated for the virus to die. HIV is a weak virus and quickly becomes inactive once exposed to external environments. Immediate needle sharing transmits the virus but if a needle is used and is left unattended and is reused after certain amount of time, the virus becomes inactive.
1297646 tn?1275465752 A new way to combat HIV/AIDS 11-30-2010 For almost three decades, science and medical researchers have struggled to find a vaccine or cure for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. However, a researcher in Beijing hopes to use an unconventional approach which may snuff out the infection before it breaks through the body's defenses. Shen Le has that story. Professor Xu Yuanyong is one of the few pioneers in complementology.

Avatar n tn The titers of HBsAb do wane over time (no need to produce if there is no contact with the virus). If you are in a situation where there is a high risk of exposure to HBV, then you may consider a booster, otherwise you do have a degree of protection due to immune memory.
Avatar m tn Based on the information i studied online and on this board, saliva has ingredients that inactive the virus. once the saliva / HIV virus mixture enters body, wouldn't the saliva part and the virus part get separated? since saliva will stay in place while virus will try to get through the membrane. 3. What about Blood in Saliva? are the virus in the blood also disabled by saliva? 4. If saliva has ingredients that can inactive the virus, why cant researcher use this to build a vaccine? 5.
Avatar n tn HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REVOLUTIONARY vaccination technology to prevent and treat genital herpes has reached the next step in clinical trials, with Professor Ian Frazer leading the charge. The new technology aims to be a prevention and cure for the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-2) and if successful, could lead to effective vaccinations or remedies for currently incurable viruses like HIV-AIDS or hepatitis C.
Avatar m tn I understand saliva might contains small qty of virus but will not cause HIV infection due to virus in saliva inability to reproduce itself as well as small qty of active virus also cant cause infection. So i am not here to debate whether it will happen or not but I am looking for the actual how/why factors which i cant seems to find anywhere. Its for one of my study. 1. Why cant small qty of active HIV virus cause infection?
163305 tn?1333672171 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. But Michael Houghton, the University of Alberta researcher who announced his work today at the Canada Excellence Research Chairs Summit in Vancouver, says his vaccine works against every known strain of the virus.
101028 tn?1419606604 _ylc=X3oDMTEwb2tjaDZvBF9TAzIwMjM4Mjc1MjQEZW1haWxJZAMxMjg1ODcwMTY0 WASHINGTON (Reuters) – GlaxoSmithKline said on Thursday that it was stopping development of a genital herpes vaccine after it failed to protect women against the virus. The U.S. National Institutes of Health said the test of 8,000 women in the United States and Canada showed the Simplirix vaccine failed to protect them significantly from genital herpes.
Avatar m tn 2) No absolutely not, the test is for an antibody specific to HIV virus that would not be present in an HIV negative person and therefore cannot be affected by antibiotics of other infections. 3) You need a booster at no longer than 6 months after your first dose of Hep A vaccine to confer long term immunity. If you did not have this it is possible the original dose did not elicit a strong enough response to cause the necessary long term memory T helper cells necessary.
Avatar m tn I was thinking of getting the HPV vaccine. Would this be a total waste of time (and money--about $450) at this point? I have had quite a few sexual partners over the years, so I'm guessing that, as with most people, strains of HPV have passed through my system at some point or another. Additionally, 8 years ago, a doctor treated what 'could have been' a genital wart on my penis (who knows if it really was, it seemed like they were of the 'easier to treat it than to confirm it' school.
Avatar n tn and how quickly does the hepatitis virus, as well as the HIV virus die when exposed to air?
Avatar m tn They are basically saying that the doctors who came up with the polio vaccine created unknowingly created HIV by using contaminated chimp tissue. This stuff is on another level. I haven't been able to leave my seat watching this. It would have to be a difficult thing to live with knowing you might have created something that kills millions of people. I have never heard of any of this stuff before.
