149675 tn?1416676733 as we explore this new treatment paradigm, we hope to gain a better understanding of the virus host interaction in HCV, as DAA induced viral suppression in the absence of extrinsic interferon allows us to study intrinsic interferon responses and associated biomarkers.
Avatar f tn My Naturoapath believes that I should probably wait for more studies and new treatment without interferon. She believes that the Cryoglobulinemia may be caused from rheumatoid instead of Hepatitis as my hep counts have always been low. The Cryo flared badly three times over the past year and Prednizone is keeping it at bay ( I guess ). It had caused very high blood pressure and consequently, kidney damage.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.

Avatar n tn Here (in Australia and new Zealand) women are routinely screened antenatally for these infections (HBV,HIV and HCV) as well as some others. As to routine treatment, most women would NOT be treated during pregnancy because, in part, concern about the effects of the drugs on the foetus. Usually, there is no need for urgent therapy anyway and it can wait until after breast feeding stops.

Avatar n tn Women with hepatitis C on treatment (pegylated interferon and ribavirin) are required to use two forms of contraception (one for each partner) to ensure they do not become pregnant during their treatment, and for six months following the end of treatment. This is because pegylated interferon and especially ribavirin can cause birth defects. Breastfeeding There are no confirmed reports of hepatitis C transmission from mother-to-baby by breast milk.
Avatar m tn This study is ongoing in seven Asian/Pacific countries (Taiwan, Hong-Kong, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Australia and New-Zealand). In this large scale controlled and randomized study, where 276 subjects were enrolled as of September 2015, one group of patients received ABX203 for 24 weeks, in addition to the current standard of care (nucleoside analogues, NUCs). All therapy was stopped after 24 weeks, and these patients are evaluated against a control group receiving NUCs only.

Avatar m tn I failed 48 weeks of Sovaldi + ribavirin in an early Gilead trial and now the virus has recurred and is attacking my new donor liver. That was my second hep C treatment failure. But I am planning to keep trying treatments until I am cured whether sooner or later. Hang in there. One treatment failure isn't the final outcome!
Avatar m tn in the morning i found a rip in it and within the following 4 days i was diagnosed with gonnorhea *gulp* i was treated for this in thailand but the treatment was ineffective until i returned home to New Zealand. i then was treated and everything was ok... My first worry was that i might have hiv as i had discharge and a swollen penis. I asked the girl as she had given me her number and she was very offended saying that she gets checked every month and that no she didnt have hiv.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had sex with a friend of mine from New Zealand a few months ago. We used a condom, but as we were a bit drunk he inserted without first putting it on (very irresponsible, stupid, stupid thing to do). About three weeks later I woke up and my left outer labia was quite swollen. There was a pea-sized lump under the skin, it was a bit red and sore to touch and I could move it around like a swollen lymph node. I did a bit of research and was under the impression that it was a sebaceous cyst.
Avatar m tn The Company licensed ABX203 from the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) in 2013, providing the Company with exclusive rights to market ABX203 in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, select Asian countries, and most of Africa. Abivax is currently conducting a Phase II/III trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of ABX203 for the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis B. The trial is fully enrolled and the Company expects to report data in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Avatar n tn To add to the confusion, in 1994, a New Zealand research group prepared a chemically-altered extract (of P. amarus) which was standardized to the geraniin chemical content (the chemical documented with analgesic and hypotensive properties). They started a double-blind HBV human trial, later discontinued it due to lack of response, and published another negative result study.
Avatar n tn a sstudy from new zealand suggested that HCV was alive and kicking 16 days after removal from the body, even after exposure to air and even if boiled. google it...
Avatar m tn you can find out where the trials will be conducted. A number of trials are and will be conducted in New Zealand and well as Europe. Good luck with your interferon and Riba. Genotypes 2 and 3 have a good chance of cure. Numerous studies using peginterferon plus ribavirin have shown that patients with genotype 2 or 3 HCV clearly have better SVR rates (up to 80%) than those with genotype 1 HCV (45%). By the way, I am taking GS-7977 and riba and became undetectable by week 2.

Avatar f tn Les Simpson). A blood sample is sent to New Zealand for this test. You may look into Colloidal Silver, I am not familiar with any studies, but I suspect that it could have some therapeutic effects in treating this pathogen. Please look it up, check in forums regarding the use of Colloidal Silver in complicated cases like this one.
