Avatar f tn 1) I think it doesn't update the new information for HIV test. 2)It isn't clinical site for HIV 3) finaly it is site for colecting the information from many sites.
Avatar m tn ) samples, it can be concluded that HCV antibodies do not influence virus inactivation by photodynamic treatment. The effect of treatment on RT-PCR signals of HIV-1, which is known to be inactivated rapidly by MB/light treatment, was examined. Plasma was infected with HIV-1 and subjected to RT-PCR, which detected a part of the gag gene. The extent and kinetics of PCR signal reduction induced by MB/light treatment were similar to those observed for HCV.
Avatar n tn Has anyone used Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for HVC related liver and other intestinal damage? I'm on a transplant list with a MELD of 15. I never opted for Interferon. Late in the game when HVC was discovered and I have the most resistant genotype. It was highly recommended by my primary heptologist, but one of the country's most respected infectious disease specialists told me last year I would just have been injecting side effects. It's my second time on the list in 2 years.

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 f tn If, for HIV, his RNA is undetectable,/negative after having a viral load above 3 million, he just has the virus under control with HAART. He is still HIV positive. HIV antibody persist for life and does not go away.
Avatar m tn Delayed seroconversion in HIV-positive individuals with acute HCV may result in delayed diagnosis and treatment. Where there is a clinical suspicion of recent HCV infection, for example, elevated alanine transaminase levels, HIV-infected patients should be screened for HCV RNA by RT–PCR. Window period.
Avatar n tn the lady's own desire, I ended up having unprotected vaginal sex (5 minutes, I ejaculated in her) with a married lady at a swinger party 11 days ago. I can't find anything about the lady's HIV status. Below are relevant facts. The lady (& her hubby) are Caucasian (I'm Asian male). She does not appear to do/ like other risky sex acts (like anal or double penetration or rough sex).
Avatar m tn As I type this I am shaking in fear.. I really need your Professional advise on this. On Saturday morning last week I met a girl in Cambodia. After a few drinks together I took her back to my hotel & we had sex. I used a condom throughout the intercourse, however, after I ejaculated & pulled out I noticed the condom broke. It must have broke near the end as when we changed positions I noticed it was intact each time.

Avatar n tn HHH is only been responsible when he declines to abund in questions of form, structure and treatment of HIV once it is acquired. If a person wants to know what happens to him/her AFTER he/she acquires HIV, then they need to seek care, advice and treatment with an hematologist or an immunologist.
Avatar n tn -me -CSW#1 -CSW#2 -my partner I had TWO episodes of unprotected oral sex (CSW#2 10 days after CSW#2), after which I've been diagnosed with chlamydia and began treatment. Concurrently I've managed to launch the treatment of my partner, because I was afraid she got chlamydia from me (we were having unprotected oral sex at the time of CSW#2). After 22 days from second, and 32 days from the first event I did get negative HIV Ag/AB test (4th gen.).
Avatar f tn I would like to know how important it is to all of you to know your exact VL during treatment at 4 and 8 weeks. If you have a PCR that measures down to <50IU/ml, are you content with a Pass/Fail until that week 12? This is the scenario I'm in for and I'm not happy about it, I want to know my exact VL count at 4 weeks and 8 weeks if I fail, as in I'm above <50IU/ml. Is this reasonable or am I getting uptight for nothing?
173930 tn?1196341998 Survey seems consistent with what I've seen posted here. Most telling to me is that 40% reported feeling worse after treating than before: 29% reported feeling about the same; and 31% reported feeling better after treatment. What that means is that around 2 out of 3 people felt either worse or no different after treating. This should be a reality check for those who treat primarily because of the so-called extra-hepatatic symptons, i.e. to feel better.
Avatar m tn After seeing it, I think I should have a CD4 test again on 6th week to evaluate if I have HIV. Is it a good approach? My country doesn't have any other HIV tests except the antibody test. So, I was thinking that if my CD4 count changes drastically around the 6th week from that of the 3rd week, maybe I should go abroad and get more advanced tests?
Avatar m tn // quotes studies showing a life-time expectancy of as much as 50 years from infection. There is undoubtly going to be great further advances in HIV treatment in the years to come. And some scientists haven't even given up on finding a functional cure or even drugs that would allow full erradication of HIV from the body.
Avatar n tn How co-operative the patient is with treatment (treatment is arduous and long, and requires persistence and determination on the part of the patient), 6. Whether the patient is HIV positive or not (HIV co-infection is associated with an increased mortality). Treatment courses are a minimum of 18 months and may last years; it may require surgery, though death rates remain high despite optimal treatment. That said, good outcomes are still possible.
Avatar m tn from wiki: Several studies in humans and mice provide evidence that treatment with the antiviral drug Famciclovir soon after the first infection with herpes can significantly lower the chance of future symptomatic outbreaks of herpes. Use of Famciclovir in this manner has been shown to reduce the amount of latent herpes virus in the neural ganglia.
Avatar n tn Hi, HIV can commonly present as seborrhoeic dermatitis. But, it is hardly true the other way round - if you have seborrhoeic dermatitis it does not mean that you have HIV. Seborrheic dermatitis is one of the most common skin manifestations of HIV disease. It occurs in <5% of the general HIV-uninfected population, but in 34-83% of those with advanced HIV disease. It may flare and subside over time, and tends to worsen after severe illness. Let us know if you need any other information.
Avatar m tn // blood has a long shelf live in blood bank. HIV can be transmitted through blood transfusion. HIV virus does survive outside of body if the temp is low and kept in blood bank. When it is infused into body, it does cause HIV infection. The virus may be quickly killed out side of body when exposed to air, in situation as we bleed from wound.
Avatar n tn // The treatment for the candidiasis is mentioned in the link given abve. Could you please suggest me on what medicine to be taken for this. I am suffereing from this burning sensation from the past 4-5 months with no result even after taking many anti-biotics. Doctor please suggest me something which can cure my burning sensation and tongue whitish (could be bcoz of Fungus and bacteria) P.S. I am tested negative for few important blood tests like HIV.
Avatar n tn Hi, i'm 26 years old and currently expierencing a problem where the shaft of my penis has a rash on it. It's apparent & dry, but only itches on cold days, not allowing me to masturbate. I also have a problem where i have pimples & blackheads on my penis ever since i was a teenager, i've been circumcised since and have been scared to have sex for this reason. Sometimes it ripens causing excruciating pain, forcing me to burst them. I've never had unprotected sex & am hiv negative.
