936016 tn?1332769204 4 drug anti-HIV pill shows promise A single pill containing 4 drugs to treat HIV infection has achieved promising results during trials, according to data presented at the 50th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy and reported in the Medscape HIV/AIDS journal. Quad by Gilead Sciences contains elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and was highly effective in suppressing HIV and in helping patients boost their CD4 T cell counts.
Avatar m tn The undetectable viral load occurred after one month medication. He is in a medication study with a new "Quad" pill, which is a combination of 4 meds which have been proven effective but not manufactured into one pill. To answer sweetprince, I am certain he did test positive as I went with him. I have also been to the same rapid test site. When you get your results, and they are negative, you are in and out in minutes.

Orders at the time were to be tested for HIV every 6 months for 10 years, due to blood transfusions (HIV awareness but blood screening for HIV had not yet been fully implemented.) Never tested positive. 1995 Inline skating accident, injury at lower back, disc bulge at S-1 L-5 and believed to have developed my large Tarlov Cyst at base of spinal cord during this time.
Avatar f tn However an important point for many null/partial responders wondering whether to risk triple or wait for quad is that the amount of ifn response required to reach SVR appears to be far less with quad than with triple. Data is still preliminary, but both the vertex quad results (87% rvr on naives) http://www1.easl.eu/easl2011/program/Posters/Abstract3.htm and the bms quad results (100% SVR on nulls) http://natap.org/2011/EASL/EASL_28.htm look very promising.
1930700 tn?1327068504 I've got several friends right now that have cancer that would gladly trade the risks that we have versus the outlook for a cure which they have. As is sits..... there is no cure for HIV, modern medicine can only keep trying new drugs to fight it. One day there will be a cure for HIV; but it is not here yet. Hepatitis C....... IS a virus for which there is a CURE. The toughest to treat genotype 1 has HAD about a 40-50% cure rate with about one year of treatment.
Avatar m tn First off, to dointime. Since sofosbuvir has been in trials for treating geno 2's and 3's with ribavirin it will seek approval for the same and will likely be approved as such. This means that the pill.....7977/sofosbuvir should be available by itself. Once approved......daclatasvir should also be available in separate pill form. It is another question whether a doctor would prescribe either off label, or whether insurance would pay.
Avatar f tn Keeping up the ifn while sorting out what to do next won't waste your investment in a lead-in. Rollover to boce seems a good option. Also, for quad, you don't have to wait for an all pill no-ifn regime, only for one more drug to add to the current triple.

Avatar m tn that's how they reach their armistice with the immune system in our gut) and their marauding is only really dangerous in the case of severely immunosuppressed individuals (HIV, cancer treatments). However, if left to grow to obscene amounts they can still do debately-significant but noticable damage to your gut wall (to varying degrees depending on genetics) and they release a lot of highly irritating toxins through their digestion and upon death.
Avatar n tn Hi, I too have upper right quad pain just below my ribs. I am a male, 46yrs old 6ft and weigh 175 lbs. My pain comes and goes and has for about 6 months. It is not severe pain, but at times is more annoying than anything. It feels like there is something in there pinching me. I went to an internal med MD in July. He ran blood tests that all came back fine. He sent me to have an abdominal ultrasound which showed only "healthy" organs.
