Hiv journal articles

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv journal articles


936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.

Pathophysiology Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a hepadnavirus.6,7,8,9,10 It is an extremely resistant strain capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and humidity. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) can survive when stored for 15 years at –20°C, for 24 months at –80°C, for 6 months at room temperatures, and for 7 days at 44°C.
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar m tn If there was a case where a 12 week was negative and later someone tested positive, there would be people who would have heard about it on this board. Has it happened. Yes, but it's so rare they write journal articles about it. And how many journal articles have there been? I only know of 2 cases. And these cases were reported in an era when tests were not nearly as good. Back then people were asked to test at 6 months and 1 year and told the earliest they could test is 3 months.
Avatar n tn I read a medical journal from 1994 saying that beta2 microglobulin can be used as a proxy for hiv infection when hiv tests are not available (90% of hiv+ patients had high levels of beta2). my beta2 is at the low end of the normal spectrum. is it safe to assume that i am hiv- considering that i had a risky exposure approx.
Avatar m tn Why do journal articles list joint pain as a main HIV or ARS symptom? Do they mean all over joint pain? Or Joint Pain in 1 or 2 plcations? I think that is the main one that is concerning me....
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.
Avatar n tn You give no data to back up your claim that the risk assessment isn't correct - any sources of information you can point me to? I got my values from journal articles in respected journals. It is only a general estimate that I'm making. I don't need a lecture about the stupidity of what happened, I already stated it was stupid on my part, and that this is the first time this has ever occurred. Finally, where did I say I wasn't going to get tested?
480448 tn?1426952138 I want to discuss the great oral sex debate. This is probably THE most common topic we see on the HIV forum. We get criticized a lot for stating that oral sex is "no risk". What people fail to understand is HOW we came to that conclusion. You have to look at the SCIENTIFIC facts, along with the statistics. I'm going to try to explain them to you...
Avatar n tn The same thing suggested by the CDC in their review of published journal articles (above). The same thing documented in the case report 2004 article "Short Communication: HIV Type 1 Transmission by Human Bite" by Andreo et al in AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses. Do I think transmission by bite occurs frequently? No, I don't. I suspect it must be pretty rare. Do I think it is likely that the biter had enough blood present in his mouth in this situation to cause infection?
Avatar n tn I’m sorry but, I do not recall stating I was at all worried about catching HIV from sharing a bathroom, dishes, et cetera. I love how I am accused of passing judgment when from the very first reply to my question there has been nothing but people passing judgment on my intentions. I did not come here to be an outlet for you people’s rage against those who do not know better about HIV, so if people would stop accusing me of being a paranoid extremist I’d greatly appreciate it.
Avatar f tn Several sites and articles are stating that it would, but they all cite a 1997 journal article about health care workers with delayed seroconversion. I wasn’t sure if other factors may have contributed to late seroconversion in these health care workers (such as PEP). Further, since this article is rather old, I was wondering if the newer tests would pick up HIV antibodies regardless of HCV coinfection.
Avatar m tn Teak thank you for your answer. From what I have read in medical articles about HIV, itremains active for a very short period, i.e. the period that the body fluids are intact. As soon as the organic fluids becomes dry and the virus is exposed to air then it becomes inactive. I know that in about 20 minutes to 1 hour all the quantity of the fluid is dried. However, what I was asking is whether the organic surface, such as skin and hair, affect this time.
936016 tn?1332769204 A common assumption is that because of the frequency and number of change of sexual partners with commercial sex workers that they will be more exposed to sexually transmitted diseases and HIV and thus more likely to acquire, carry and spread STD/STI’s and HIV. As a clinician working in a clinic where I see many people, male and female, who have used sex workers, the concept of risk is one that generally occurs after the sexual event.
Avatar n tn ---still negative at 14 weeks, put it this way if either one of us comes out positive (won't happen) they will have to write journal articles about us.
Avatar m tn If you are reading this, you are probably obsessing over the possibility of having contracted HIV and/or are dreading getting an HIV test. However, it is my aim to teach you that you really have nothing to worry about concerning such an exposure. First, HIV is a very difficult virus to transmit sexually.
Avatar n tn HHH said there's no association of canker sore with ARS but from, two journal articles (one being one of the top publications, the British Medical Journal) are cited as saying that there is an association, which makes it a bit concerning to me. "Painful mucocutaneous ulceration is one of the most distinctive manifestations of the syndrome. Shallow, sharply demarcated ulcers may be found on the oral mucosa, anus, penis, or esophagus [58].

Avatar m tn I urge you to please THINK about the significance and consequences of what you are posting before you post links to articles in the HIV Prevention Community. Finding an article through a search engine does not make you an expert on the topic. If you want to educate yourself and others about HIV, your best sources of information are the repeated comments of MH's doctors. J.
Avatar m tn I don't find such the case on internet (journal,articles,etc) 2) It might be occured in hiv positive but with clinical sympthom (based on journal) but my case, I am not HIV positive and I didn't suffer from any kind of clinical sympthom during my seroligical relapse 3) If it was neurosyphilis then my previous syphilitic titer would not decreased that well.
Avatar n tn The odds of infection are about 5%. The largest study to date is a report published in the journal Hepatology in 2000 by Conte et al., in which 15,250 consecutive pregnant women were screened for HCV, 370 of whom had evidence of viral infection. Overall vertical transmission rate was 5.1% and was seen exclusively in mothers who had detectable viremia by PCR. Genotype, viral load, vaginal vs. cesarean delivery, breast feeding or HIV co-infection were not associated with transmission.

Avatar f tn // Scientists were baffled when the 22-year-old female with no history of transmission risk factors was diagnosed with advanced HIV disease. Before you drop your cuticle sticks and nail clippers, let's take a closer look at the facts about the woman who may have contracted HIV from a manicure. 1. She denied having vaginal, anal or oral sexual intercourse, a blood transfusion, surgery, piercing and tattooing.

Avatar m tn I have been reading so many journal articles and posts from others including doctors who specialise in this field. AND WE ARE SAFE !!! the important thing to take away from this is that anything we may feel now is most likely due to Anxiety (NO RISK of HIV i promise and I wouldnt say it if i didnt believe it) .In the future we need to be more aware of what we do ,and be more vigilant. If you want a statistical term which may better serve us .
Avatar m tn I was unaware but have now looked at the journal articles themselves. The science seems excellent -- far beyond my technical expertise, but papers don't get into the journal Science without being very high qualilty. It looks like a promising step on the way to a potential vaccine, but still a very early one. There are always big potholes on the way from this level of discovery to making an effective vaccine, and HIV science is full of disappointments along the way.
