Common Questions and Answers about Hiv treatment japan


Avatar n tn Some people on this forum have used Doxil and Avastin as part of their 2d line treatment. If Nodoxa is same as Doxil talk to your oncologist about his view on adding Avastin to it. I am not sure if Nodoxa has been tested in a combination chemo setting.

Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old female previously diagnosed with low-grade hpv. I should note that I am living in a rural area of Japan and the language barrier is considerable. Also, I have been in a (supposedly) monogamous relationship for the past 10 months. He was tested in 11/05 for hiv/syph/hep (-). Two months ago I began having symptoms including white vaginal discharge, lower abdominal pain (bloated feeling), lower back pain and frequent urination.
Avatar n tn Serine Protease Inhibitors Many companies have pursued drugs designed to inhibit the HCV serine protease enzyme, based on the success of protease inhibitors in HIV treatment. As with HIV, the hepatitis C virus encodes a protease enzyme essential for viral replication. However the HCV protease has proven a more difficult target due to the shape of the molecule. While many compounds have demonstrated antiviral efficacy in vitro, few have moved into human studies.
Avatar n tn I remember Galen posting threads that Milk Thistle may increase the level's of medication in one's blood stream, and that this can be potentially dangerous on tx (at least for treatment for HIV, and possibly tx for hep c also), but I don't know how this may apply to Sho-saiko-to. It is worth keeping in mind though.
Avatar f tn Doctor I have been depressed. I dnt know whats wrong, if im cured and I am afraid I have HIV. Around the 7th week after exposure I noticed a tender spot 2 inches to the left of my lower spine. HIV related node? 1.if i had gono why didnt it show on my first test? 2 if i did have gono shouldnt have the ceftrioxane got rid of it, or can combining this antibiotic with cipro make the bacteria harder to kill. 3. is my tender spot in my lower back associated with hiv or ars?
Avatar m tn I have a few questions... 1. Right now i live in Japan and some Japanese medicine has some bad rep - the doctor wouldnt give me cream for my warts but instead some powder to drink - apparently to give my body more power. I dont have faith in it. Anybody heard of this?? The packet says P72 Yokuinin. To be honest i just want some cream. 2. Transmission worrys - do the presence of warts increase transmission rate? 3.
29837 tn?1414538248 He also mentioned that it will be at least six years before there’s a treatment without Interferon and the nasty Ribavirin. Can you wait? To his3707 As to your question of how do you go about getting the "compassionate use" of Telaprivir before its release? Aside from begging, you have your doctor fill and present a series of documents to the FDA and eventually Vertex. Search my archives on this and it will tell you everything, including where you can download the documents, etc...

Avatar n tn If I understand you correctly, you are looking for free medicine to help fight hepatitis C. There are groups in this country that do this sort of time, i.e. ship medicines out of the country for those in need. I believe the way it works, is that individuals and hospitals in this country donate unused medications to the organization then ship them overseas. You might want to do a search under "donate medicine" and see what you come up with.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Following is a behavior that occurred last week, anyone can help to evaluate the level of possibilities to infect HIV? I visited Japan last week, and one of my gay friends in Japan took me around the city, during the visit, I touched his bottom area by my penis. (both of us pants on), coz I told him I erected, and he didn't believe it, so I touched and a bit bump him and prove it.
Avatar n tn I do feel a little more tired and have some stomach discomfort, but I can deal with that for the obvious purpose the treatment is for (preventing an HIV infection). Is the PEP side effects suppossed to get worse?
Avatar n tn Though this encounter probably rates at low risk, should I be worried about HIV and can I draw any comfort from the negative results thus far? 3. If it is not HIV or Syphilis, why aren't the antibiotics being helpful? 4. What can I do at this point to rule out an STD? 5. Is this just one of those weird co-incidences? Please advise..
1279914 tn?1271249763 while on a business trip i met a japanese girl from japan. during the course of my week away we had multiple sexual encounters. i had condoms and used them at times, but at other times i did not since i only bought one small box and they were gone fairly quickly (stupid stupid stupid!!) there were plenty of times when we had vaginal sex with no protection during our encounters. the only thing i know about her is that she said she has been with 6 other guys. all of who were japanese.
Avatar m tn HIV is quite uncommon in Japan and your HIV risk remains very low.
253566 tn?1219683299 Mine was normal both before and during treatment, but dropped and remained low normal for over a year post treatment. My symptons aren't as bad as yours, so haven't supplemented the testosterone, but you might consider at least trying it, even if you're in the low or perhaps even mid-normal range. You also mention your lab results are out of whack. What tests specifically aren't right?
Avatar f tn I have known being the carrier for about 10 years (probably since birth). I first started treatment since Jan 08, due to very high load of DNA (almost 600m copies) and high AST, ALT (200, 600 respectively). Echographie abdominale shows Liver were functioning well (all following tests showed same result). As prescribed by doctor, I have been using Baraclude since. After 6 months treatment (Jul 08), ALT, AST were back in normal range. Virus count dropped to less than 30K copies .
Avatar m tn Do you think I have HIV? PS I have been trying to lose weight for 2 months now. IF this could of caused the problem..
Avatar n tn That evidence outweighs all the other things you say, hands down. You don't have HIV. It is true that some research suggests that some people can be exposed to HIV, develop an immune reaction to it of the sort you describe, yet are not infected. That's NOT INFECTED. You have been grossly overtested. I believe you are depressed, probably rather seriously. (I could show your thread to medical students to teach them many of the classical manifestations of that disease.
Avatar m tn Hi, If anyone can suggest me the best place for treatment of Hepatitis B in India? I have tried hard but could not find a hospital is specialised for such treatment.
Avatar m tn If his viral load was undetectable 5 days before your encounter, he was certainly on treatment - it doesn't become undetectable by itself. Also, even if he stopped treatment the day he got tested (why would he?), his viral load wouldn't immediately rise. Since you did have the highest risk exposure, I'd test again with DUO at 42 days, and be satisfied with that.
Avatar m tn Hepatitis C is rarely transmitted By Sexual activities Than Why is the number of hepatitis C positive people a lot higher than the number HIV positive people?? ? I know it's not the palace to ask this answer. .. But I couldn't find the answer. . If anyone knows please guide me..

Avatar m tn Here are quotes from "A lot of natural supplements aid in the treatment of Hepatitis B including: * Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale): Native Americans have been using this supplement for long periods of time to treat liver disorders including Hepatitis B. Dandelion can work as a liver tonic and a rich source of Vitamin A. * Milk thistle (Silybum marianum) is a Mediterranean herb that has been used for thousands of years for liver ailments.
Avatar f tn In parallel to these trials, Phase 3 studies for simeprevir are ongoing in treatment-naive and treatment-experienced HIV-HCV co-infected patients and HCV genotype 4 patients. To date, 1,846 patients have been treated with simeprevir in clinical trials.
483814 tn?1214315080 I need to be undetectable to continue the treatment. As of July 29 my viral load is 15,300. I need to go below 200 to continue treatment. Needless to say I am anxious to continue the treatment. To give my self an extra week to go below 200 I scheduled my blood draw for Sept 9th saying that I couldn't get into the clinic on Sept. 2. Of course I want to complete this treatment and have it be a success so if you know how to pray please keep me in mind.

Avatar m tn Dear Doctors, I had sex with a prostitute in Japan last friday (13th of July). Involved unprotected oral, genital to gential grinding (with lubricant) and protected sex. From my understanding the chance of me getting something from this episode should be very small. So when I got home 2 days later (Sunday night), I had sex with my girl friend (unprotected), which I thought no harm can come to her.
