Avatar m tn Also the fact that there is no vaccine against hcv was, may be, one of the reasons that led the companies to focus on a curative treatment. Anyway, it is very promising now that the companies have shifted their focus towards hbv; so let's hope in the near future we would have a drug that could dislodge the cccDNA. Let's also hope that any drugs that could be produced would be affordable to the general public, because the new hcv drugs are prohibitively expensive.
Avatar m tn As everyone know three doses of hep b vaccine is required to develop desired antibody titer. But what is the immunity status after two doses of vaccine. Can it protect if someone gets accidentally exposed to virus after the second dose. Also taking vaccine doses from two different pharma companies is equally effective than from same company or its ineffective at all? Hoping for ur helpful answers. Thank you!
Avatar n tn A hepatitis C vaccine, a vaccine capable of protecting against hepatitis C, is not available. Although vaccines exist for hepatitis A and hepatitis B, development of a hepatitis C vaccine has presented challenges.
Avatar m tn Yes, they come from different companies, the first vaccine has been developed from Dynavx, and the second one has been investigated by Inovio (http://www.inovio.com/products/infectious-disease-vaccines/hepatitis/). Unfortunately, the progress of Hep B therapeutic vaccine from Inovio is very disappointed (not even in preclinical), compared with Hep C (in phase III, http://www.inovio.
Avatar m tn No one knows what will occur after 10-20 years but by then, its possible drug companies will have booster shots available. No vaccine is forever.
Avatar n tn I read they will give COVID vaccine to high risk first. I have diagnosis of mild emphysema but am young, would I not be considered high risk enough to get the vaccine?
Avatar m tn Hi Stephen Just curious, how is a 'vaccine' GS-4774 different from a standard hbv vaccine that is used to immunise a person? Thanks.
650416 tn?1274711495 any thoughts on the swine flu??? what are your thoughts about the vaccine? any advice from drs?
Avatar n tn I got that contact and the Information officer of the company confirmed it that there is likelihood of the curative vaccine to be out soon.She promised to contact me by email as soon as latest information arises. Let us hope for the best.The details of the Company are stated below: ViRexx Medical Corp.
20856219 tn?1541792336 It has never before made a product that actually worked, while the other two companies are huge old companies. But again, the Moderna appears to be the most effective vaccine out there, and because of that their booster will have less mRNA in it than the Pfizer booster because it used more to being with and is holding up much better. At least as far as we know.
Avatar m tn https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/05/health/obesity-covid-vaccine-effectiveness-wellness/index.html "Will we have a Covid vaccine next year tailored to the obese? No way," said Raz Shaikh, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
Avatar n tn It is not the shot, it is the one they spray up the nose. I do not think they have the shot form with the H1N1 flu vaccine. I already got the regular seasonal flu shot. They nasal spray flu vaccine contains live viruses, so that's why I am asking this question. Thank You.
Avatar f tn I completed my Hepatitis B vaccine in 2006, but last week the blood test shows I am a Hepatitis B carrier. what's going on? My mom and my brother have Hepatitis B. I just lost my virginity to a guy who had a lot sex partners. i'm confused. Did i get this from my mom since i was born? or did i get this from the guy i had sex with?
Avatar m tn Wear those masks, social distance, and pray the vaccine works a lot better than the flu vaccine. The people with the highest rate of getting the flu vaccine are the elderly, and they are also the group who every year dies the most from the flu. Peace again.
Avatar n tn If you get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, it's a totally different kind of vaccine than the measles vaccine, but if you are concerned, absolutely check with your doctor.
458072 tn?1291415186 Despite having the data, the CDC has continued to assure pregnant women, a prime target group for the vaccine, and vaccine providers that the vaccine presents no risk for pregnant women. NCOW used data from their own survey of pregnant women aged 17-45 years and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), including updates through July 11, to estimate the true number of miscarriages and stillbirths following an H1N1 flu vaccination in the U.S.
Avatar f tn Hi JackieCalifornia, I agree with you on all the Lyme Issues even though I don't have Lyme myself thank goodness. But I guess regarding the coke or cola regulation I am mixed about this. On the one hand I don't think they should be restricting what you eat or drink.
1056870 tn?1254244774 can hiv vaccine be possible and what time it will take to evolve such vaccine, is vaccine available in any part of country
Avatar m tn Personally there is a Vaccine currently in Phase 1 Trails that was recently Approved by the FDA which in a sense is a major step for any Vaccine. This Vaccine uses a Whole HIV Virus instead of little bits of it. There is also a Heavy Duty Vaccine (Genes) in the pipeline as well. We also need to Focus Prevention Methods on the hardest hit the Gay community. We need to have a Aggressive safe sex promotion and Widespread HIV TESTING.
Avatar n tn or some amount of it left in my body, and an adenovirus vaccine-induced enhancement of target cells for HIV can cause an infection (kind of delayed seroconversion)? The studies on the HIV vaccine considered 6 months old exposures as high-risk (prior to the administration of the vaccine), if I remember correctly, but I dont know if that was used for behavioural purposes. It isnt clear in the cited studies. 2.
Avatar n tn I would like to ask whether Hepatitis B vaccine impact the window period of HIV testing? Is this negative result is finally conclusive?
Avatar f tn if someone inadvertently injects a quantity of HIV blood into the vaccine bottle can it infect or the vaccine component will inactivate hiv ? If syringes or needles have been used before in a person with HIV what is the possibility of infection.
Avatar m tn This means that although unlikely but still there is a chance for the vaccine to cause rabies. Also do the manufacturing companies perform sufficient tests before releasing any vaccine in the market? Looking forward for your kind response once again.
Avatar m tn it is not enough to test that only you have to test hbsag, hbsab and hbcab igg and igm to have a picture no difference and you ll clear hbv anyway even if no vaccine, anyway you are fully on time and if you dont mind to spend the money for the vaccine you dont need to wait for any test if you want to save money check the tests above and if any positive you had hbv already and cleared, hbv has no symptoms
Avatar m tn http://archive.mail-list.com/hbv_research/message/20100705.121943.e77d5298.en.html i am happy to see this is from china researchers, i also see hbv vaccination is mandatory in china too, looks like the only third world is US since also europe has vaccines mandatory forr hbv, maybe hbv drugs are mainly produced in US....i don't know.....
Avatar m tn just to be extra safe? Is the vaccine able to treat the virus or just prevent it from occuring if it is not already in the body?
