Common Questions and Answers about Hiv vaccine found


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 However, chicken pox and herpes simplex do. Think of them as cousins. HIV is not even a distant relative. I found this - It looks like it claims that it prevents future outbreaks. It doesn't mention anything about a cure, or anything about preventing shedding. Daily suppression reduces outbreaks and shedding, and you don't have to go to Russia to get that.
Avatar m tn I want to get a OraQuick HIV test. Just to get this crazy HIV scare out of my mind, but now I am too scared I might get a false positive for the OraQuick test. My original post is Please help. Anyone ???
Avatar f tn 3 A study of blood gathered from more than 800 syringes filled with small amounts of HIV-infected blood and stored for various periods found that HIV could be isolated from 10% of syringes after eleven days where the quantity of blood was less than 2µl, but 53% of syringes where the quantity of blood was 20µl. Longer survival of HIV was also associated with lower storage temperature (less than 4°C); at higher temperatures (27 to 37°C) survival was not detected beyond seven days.
Avatar m tn They then compared the number screened and found to be infected with viral hepatitis against race- and age-matched national data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to assess the missed diagnoses. Even with quality health care, only 18.8% (one in five) were tested for HBV infection, with 1.4% testing positive. CDC researchers estimated that at least 21.1% of HBV infections (and 43.1% of hepatitis C infections) in this patient group remained undiagnosed.
Avatar n tn I found absolutely no data to suggest the linkage between palpitaitons and the Hep B vaccine. From the American Medical Association web site ( and the CDC website "Serious side effects after administration of the hepatitis B vaccine are extremely rare. There have been some anecdotal reports of the association of hepatitis B vaccination with chronic illness such as autoimmune disorders. However, there have been no scientific data supporting these claims.
156085 tn?1204330585 wow wow YO riba! you have given me more glue to put the pieces together. but i did smile as you describe your explanation as crude. for me the picture you described was a nice picture in which to begin to plug in the players in the TH1 immune response. is there an exact place on the polyprotein molecule of hcv that those peptide fragments come from? perhaps E1 or E2, core, P7, or non structural areas? perhaps all? also do you have any idea of the function of the P7 area?

Avatar n tn i ve had a sexual encounter with a women wich i found out later she is HIV +. During the intercourse the condom broke cuz she was no too much lubricated. I founf out the broken condom between the last 5 or 10 min of intercourse. The whole thing last like 30 min i assume, but in the last 10 or 5 i found it the condom was broke. Before that, i mean, in the first 20 min, the condom was ok cuz i was cheking it since in a while. After this, 2 days later she did and HIV test wich came up POSITIVE.
Avatar f tn Four months ago I received my first shot of a series of three HPV vaccines. Three months ago, I received the following vaccine and I'm due to get the third vaccine in a few months. I also received a TB screen test about three weeks before the hiv test. Could these be factors that caused the test to come back indeterminate? or are they completely unrelated? HELP!
Avatar m tn I have read some testing but nothing I have found has been promising for a vaccine. Others might have found other information.
Avatar m tn 2% in formula-fed infants among those that received HBV vaccine alone. In those who received a combination of HBV vaccine and HBIG, the anti-HBs levels were found to be similar (90.9% vs 90.3%). When we compare inexpensive breastfeeding to formula feeding, we always have to remember the disturbing phenomenon of current industry practices.
Avatar m tn This definition of protection against chronic infection has become widely accepted in vaccine development against chronic viral infection, such as HIV, because chronic infection is the well-established cause of disease.
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 Rabies is of two kinds 1 lunatic, second silent, but its better to be safe then sorry, her undeclared death left me searching on net, where i found out it might have been rabies, as the kitten died,I was immediately advices anti-rabies vaccine 0,(is counted as day1) and tehn 4 more, I was also given immuno globulin as the kitten died ,which cost me a fortune but better than being dead a series of 2 in shoulder, 2 in butt, i in thigh and i derma at site of wound (which has healed) now 4 anti-rabo

Avatar n tn 6 hours after receiving a double booster of hep b vaccine from Glaxo Smith Kline I became quite ill, nausea, gastro pain issues etc. The next day this reaction faded and was replaced by generalized Pruritis (Itching). I received a double booster because my immunity titer level always would fall off with one shot. I was assured that the double shot was safe. I had the Hep B vaccine shot in late October and started nine days ago anti histamines (Adarax) and prednisone a week ago (.
Avatar m tn They are evaluating a number of blood tests to determine if they can diagnose HIV infection in babies younger than 3 months. How can HIV infection be prevented? Because no vaccine for HIV is available, the only way to prevent infection by the virus is to avoid behaviors that put a person at risk of infection, such as sharing needles and having unprotected sex. Many people infected with HIV have no symptoms.
180992 tn?1383377657 IG is indicated for persons with decreased response to hepatitis A vaccine. Based on available data such persons include those with HIV/AIDs, persons undergoing hemodialysis, recipients of solid organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplants, persons with chronic liver disease (e.g., cirrhosis), and other patients unlikely to develop an adequate immune response. Also, antibody response after a single dose of hepatitis A vaccine in persons older than 40 years may be reduced, but data are limited.
559053 tn?1274916974 Not only is it poetic, it's an accomplishment that many thought was impossible. Because hepatitis C is more virulent than HIV, no one was confident a vaccine against all the various strains around the world could be developed. But Michael Houghton, the University of Alberta researcher who announced his work today at the Canada Excellence Research Chairs Summit in Vancouver, says his vaccine works against every known strain of the virus.
Avatar n tn I did get tested for HIV and it came back negative but it was 6 weeks after my first exposure, 4 weeks after my second exposure and 2 weeks after my last exposure.
Avatar f tn Millions of cases of an infection for which there is no vaccine, no effective treatment, and where case management is so expensive that it is beyond the reach of most patients," said Dr. Laith J. Abu-Raddad, co-author of the study and assistant professor of public health at the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Group at the Weill Cornell Medical College-Qatar." Alarming.
Avatar m tn Eulogy for a doomed vaccine: what happens when an HIV vaccine not only fails to prevent infection but may actually help cause it? Sean Kennedy assesses the second major vaccine study to go belly-up--and his own participation in it. It was bad enough when a promising HIV vaccine's global trial was halted last September because the drug under study failed to prevent infection.
Avatar n tn The tongue heals very quickly so it would be unlikely for you to get HIV from him this way, if he is HIV infected. If he does have HIV, I would urge you to use dental dams for oral sex at all times. Even though the risk is lower than for vaginal sex, there is a risk. You are right that hepatitis B is more easily transmitted than HIV.
Avatar m tn They are basically saying that the doctors who came up with the polio vaccine created unknowingly created HIV by using contaminated chimp tissue. This stuff is on another level. I haven't been able to leave my seat watching this. It would have to be a difficult thing to live with knowing you might have created something that kills millions of people. I have never heard of any of this stuff before.

Avatar n tn A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected. According to the study, the risk is highest among young, sexually active men and minority groups because they are least likely to know their health status, while the rate has fallen for heterosexuals and intravenous drug users.
Avatar n tn The problem is, after my mum had the same vaccine she contracted severe Rhumetoid Artheritus! I found there IS a link between the two after a Google search and it's one of the rare side effects. Someone on Yahoo! Answers seems to have got arfheritus after having his jabs too.;_ylt=AvKA2R7pCxGl06wlApuiBmcjzKIX?qid=1006030313992 (just like my mum had) Now I don't know what on earth to do?
Avatar m tn Simply having some sort of chemical reaction or enzyme in saliva that inactivates HIV doesn't mean you can make a vaccine with the same capability. 5) Correct. Once inactivated by saliva, the virus is dead as a doornail. For most viruses, if the outer membrane is destroyed, the virus cannot survive, replicate, or infect. You don't describe the exposure(s) that concern you, if any. As you will see in most questions on this forum, we generally don't deal with the biological explanations.
