Avatar m tn ” They called for additional studies into occult infection, and more research on whether vaccine boosters and/or stronger vaccines are needed to truly vanquish hepatitis B in children born to infected mothers.
Avatar n tn All my Blood works are always normal (Thyroid Test is normal) I don't know if these symptoms are related to the Hepatitis Vaccine but all these symptoms began during and after taking this vaccine. How can I determine if the vaccine has anything to do with these symptoms? What steps should I take from here.. Any help would be appreciated.

Avatar n tn BANGKOK – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible. The World Health Organization and the U.N. agency UNAIDS said the results "instilled new hope" in the field of HIV vaccine research.
Avatar f tn Lyme compared to HIV/AIDS By a well known Lyme specialist---- Dr. J. in Washington D.C.---- in his remarks read to the North Carolina Medical Board during his final appearance before them on July 20, 2006. "Most of my HIV patients used to die ... now most don't ... Some still do, of course. My Lyme patients, the sickest ones, want to die but they can't. That's right, they want to die but they can't. The most common cause of death in Lyme disease is suicide.

1211076 tn?1303523040 H1N1 Nasal Spray Vaccine Prevents Swine Flu The presence of living H1N1 virus in the nasal spray vaccine poses risks. Weak immune response can result in infection by the inhaled version of the swine flu vaccine. The swine flu vaccine is created within chicken eggs, and is processed to create a large batch of antigen, which will provoke an immune response within the vaccinated individual.
Avatar n tn I think there were more adjunctives- what they put in it to make you get immunity easier. I think they (the production companies) did not have enough vaccine so they added more (chemicals- adjunctives) so that less vaccine could be used in each dose and you would still get a good immune response. I read this somewhere doing research. I thought it was weird that the type my doctors office was giving me could not be given to children or pregnant women.
Avatar m tn I did however contract warts a couple years ago in my pubic area in which my dermatologist recommended the vaccine. (I'm over that episode now thank God). I know the vaccine wouldn't help for that strain but there are others included in it.. So why are guys discriminated by the insurance companies? This is very frustrating to me... thoughts? advice? etc...
1072295 tn?1255453136 i read that the company that make the vaccine 'braxton' is the same company that made a vaccine in the 80s that was contaminated and alot of ppl got hiv from it. i read this in a newspaper not on the net.. but we realy are taking a chance putting this in to are many ppl all over the world are getting the vaccine,could you imagine if it all went wrong,ok i know im getting carried away,i cant help it,its such a hard decision.
Avatar m tn I asked both the doctors if I there was a high chance that I had caught HIV and they both different occasions they smiled and said they highly doubt it as it's very hard to catch. My question is my sore throat took two weeks to go away as it only takes 4-7 days usually, and I still have muscle and joint pain. And these are all the symptoms of acute HIV as I've read online. My family doctor said in one month I can do Hep A, B, and C and syphilis test but have to wait 3 months for HIV testing.

Avatar m tn How is it possible that people still do not seem to know the first thing about hiv, even in this day and age. I knew more about hi / aids than most of these folks when i was 14! Serious. Very disappointing, the need to do better work to educate teens & adults. Why are there no television spots -or- specials on television -or- something. That's why the brackets keep going up man-ignorance is the culprit man...
220090 tn?1379170787 However, HBV and HIV only reproduce within cells. HIV uses the DNA of the host cell to reproduce. HCV reproduces free in the bloodstream and not within a cell. This makes HCV much easier to treat with PIs since the virus is exposed during reproduction and the other two are hidden. This is the reason it is possible to cure HCV with a PI, but HIV and HBV are not curable with PIs.
Avatar n tn I will consider getting the hep b vaccine. i did at least get over the hiv thing with the lady scratching thing pretty much by myself and called my gyn about the hiv thing and she said i would not need to get tested again so i stopped worrying about that too. i wish these thoughts would stop though because it is never ending. and i think i do wayyyyy to much searching on the internet too. i did have another new thing though unfortunately.
300980 tn?1194933000 While the basis of the vaccine is recent studies demonstrating that males who received the vaccine are at reduced risk for anal and throat cancers, studies also show that the quadrivalent vaccine reduces risk of genital warts in males and, in theory, may reduce the risk of acquiring infections which could then be transmitted to sex partners.

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 f tn I would not have considered the vaccine for myself. The HIV vaccine in it's third round of testing has now been cancelled. It made it all the way to real life testing before it was shown that high risk people who had the vaccine had a higher rate of new HIV infection than the placebo group did. Scary.
Avatar m tn Spread disease, keep the doctors in business, and the pharmaceutical companies too. The HBV vaccine started here in like 1989 I think, about 1 year before my first child was born, but I don't think the schedule of immunizations was the same as it is now so I'm in the process of testing (and possibly) re-vaccinating my now adult (18 and 20 year old) children (while they are still virgins).
277836 tn?1359669774 HIV Immune Responses are Random New research shows the body's defenses against HIV are random rather than genetically determined, which may be why it's so difficult to develop an AIDS vaccine. The UCLA AIDS Institute study shows the immune systems in two HIV-positive identical twins responded to the infection in different ways. In 1983, male twins were infected with HIV shortly after their births in Los Angeles by blood transfusions from the same donor at the same time.
Avatar n tn I have heard that the babies immune system is not capable of handling the vaccine. If this is so why give it at all? Doesn't this just cause more damage then it would prevent?
Avatar n tn Flu has maybe less than 1% of diversity that HIV has. So you will need to get an HIV vaccine every day, using this math... 2. I agree that HIV is overhyped. Even Africa has worse problems than HIV - TB, malaria, etc. But it is obviously still a major public health problem. 3. A cure in the next 10 years won't happen, because it takes almost 10 years to just get the clinical trials done and we don't even have anything close to start the clinical trials with yet.
Avatar n tn hsv2 causes changes in the cellular level in the body that make you more easily infected with hiv. Even combined together it still didn't reduce transmission of hiv as much as they thought it would :( I totally agree, reducing transmission to a male from a hsv2+ female isn't as significant as the reduction in risk from a hsv2+ male to a hsv2 neg female. It's totally a personal choice but certainly something to consider.
242516 tn?1368227505 This gives a good idea of when to return to work, school, and lab testing is not necessary. The seasonal flu vaccine is now available. This is the usual vaccine that protects against the three flu strains that have circulated in various forms over the last 30 years. The H1N1 vaccine may be available in late October.
Avatar f tn they have found a cure for hpv and cancer at penn state but the fda/pharmacy companies won't fund for it. People they want us stay sick...they don't want to be cured cause then they lose their money, the vaccine is all they care about..I want this cure people, let's fine away to get it. People are dying hpv and cancer, let's get saved before we see that fate, aav2 is the cure.
Avatar f tn I know we desperately need something. All these companies take for ever their pipe line of new drug testing..
Avatar m tn FR0012333284 – ABVX), an emerging leader in developing and commercializing anti-viral and vaccine therapies for diseases like HIV/AIDS and chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) and the Center for genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB), a global leader in biotechnology, today announced that CECMED, the Cuban regulatory authorities, granted the CIGB their first marketing authorization application for ABX203, a first-in-class therapeutic vaccine for treatment of CHB, under the trade name HeberNasvac.
Avatar m tn They claim to have a therapeutic vaccine V5 for Hepatitis B. As stefano170669 said, they never published in a respectable journal. It is a very strange company.
