Hiv vaccine research trials

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv vaccine research trials


373367 tn?1246405635 Didn't I read where they have only tried it one 30 patients? I think they should step up their research to include more individuals and get on done, SOON. Thanks for posting this. They are truly making advances in the fight against diseases.
Avatar n tn Is anybody familiar with this therapeutic vaccine which is apparently available in russia? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
475555 tn?1469307939 I have no complaints about the doctors I'm seeing in Buenos Aires, the trouble is that they aren't equiped with the latest test equipment and there are no trials or new therapies there. I want to see what's happening here, in the forefront of HCV research. Also, there are no support groups in Argentina, and I don't think I want to try and handle this alone. Anyway, I hope that explains why I'm putting the cart before the horse. Just trying to get information about treatment here in the U.S.
Avatar n tn There are two strains of herpes, with HSV-1 most commonly associated with cold sores and HSV-2 - the virus targeted by this newest vaccine - most commonly associated with genital herpes. Extensive testing at the Translational Research Institute for the Coridon vaccine has already showed promising results in animals but Professor Frazer said the next step to work with humans would ensure the vaccine was safe.
163305 tn?1333672171 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 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.
264121 tn?1313033056 However, I recently came into contact with a girl from Romark whose mother has Hep C. Romark is trials both with Alinia in conjunction with interferon alone, as a monotherapy by itself, and as an adjunct to the the combo therapy. Alinia is an already on the books drug FDA approved for treatment of giardia, which I believe is a parasitic intestinal disorder. Which means that until the FDA approves it. treatment of Hep C outside the studies would, I suppose, be off-label.
55646 tn?1263664409 After years of nothing new in herpes research, everything is new right now. Nationally, there are at least three different studies beginning for the treatment of genital herpes. First, the Genocea phase one (first in humans) trial. Instead of an oral medication to treat herpes, Genocea out of Boston has taken the approach of stimulating the immune system to respond more robustly to the herpes virus in people who are already infected with the virus.
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.
475555 tn?1469307939 I just can't understand why, instead of follow-up trials of ITMN-191 (R7227) as monotherapy, the developer has switched to a ITMN-191 + SOC trial? Was there some biomedical reason for this, or is it political pressure, bribery, or what?
181575 tn?1250202386 I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.

3697245 tn?1347905619 So your husband also needs to treat his Hep C, to get rid of it. There are some Clinical trials involving coinfected people (HCV + HIV) and since it is a Research Trial, your husbands Hep C Treatmebt would be free.
Avatar m tn If so, could I have gotten hepatitus or hiv from getting toilet water in my cut? Can hepatitus or hiv live in toilet water?

Avatar m tn I'm referring to this latest news about hiv research which is also a retrovirus like hbv: "The new therapy works in two stages. Firstly, a vaccine helps the body recognise the HIV-infected cells so it can clear them out. Secondly, a new drug called Vorinostat activates the dormant T-cells so they can be spotted by the immune system.
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.
220090 tn?1379170787 It is important to realize though that PI's are not the only promising lines of research at the moment. In addition to research on a vaccine, there seem to be new "discoveries" every other day in updates, as to potential lines that are promising. If a PI come's along, that eliminates the need for other drugs, that will be great. But, it is a bet that PI's will be first, and no more than that.
Avatar f tn 6 million ($49 million) in a European IPO, earmarking its new cash to push a hepatitis B vaccine into pivotal trials and hit the gas on an HIV drug. Abivax has registered about 2 million shares on the Euronext Paris exchange, setting aside another roughly 300,000 for its underwriters. The biotech will be placing shares through June 22, expecting to price them at a midpoint of €21.30 ($23.91) each. If Abivax's overallotment allocation comes through, the company could gross €57.7 million ($64.
Avatar m tn Do you know if that research is going to continue? I believe I read that Pritelivir was in Phase II trials, so if the research started again what would be a realistic time frame for when the drug could be publicly available? Are there any other more promising drugs in the pipeline that might be available sooner? Another source I have been reading about is Dr William Halford (
Avatar m tn Recent trials on animals have shown it is between 85 and 100 per cent effective at blocking HIV and Herpes transmission. 4. Astellas ASP-2151 The most promising of the long-awaited Helicase Primase Inhibitors (HPI) drugs. And I really mean long-awaited. This is like super-acyclovir, and there's been some speculation that it could inhibit the virus so effectively that asymptomatic shedding may not be an issue. 5.
Avatar n tn But don't blow it by being vaccinated without first checking with the researchers. Getting the vaccine probably will interfere with the research. Even if you don't tell them, they will know: the antibody levels against HPV 16 are far higher after the vaccine than after natural infection. In response to the comment by pcrguy, my guess is that you have already been tested as part of the research study. But if not, his question is pertinent. Do you know for sure? How?
Avatar m tn Partners and collaborators include the University of Pennsylvania, Merck, ChronTech, National Cancer Institute, U.S. Military HIV Research Program, NIH, HIV Vaccines Trial Network, University of Southampton, US Dept. of Homeland Security and PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative.

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 Roche also obtained an option to license additional vaccine opportunities in connection with a collaborative research program in oncology. Roche and Inovio will collaborate to further develop INO-5150 and INO-1800. Under the terms of the agreement, Roche will make an upfront payment of USD $10 million to Inovio.
Avatar n tn as usual drugs that cure are not developped, today hiv researchers in rome said that hiv therapeutic vaccine works to rebuild immune system even in those with hiv und since hiv und is not equal immune system working back again normally, well after they reached phase 2 and results there is no money left......this research is all government funded no money from drugs pharma, how come?
Avatar m tn checking tenofovir trials on hbv only (no hiv coinfection) kidney problems are in less than 1% patients and i haven't found tx discontinuation because of kidney problems. hbv has no mutations at all under tenofovir tx and i think we can find data from some patients using tenofovir for more than 3 years even if not on trial about this. entecavir mono has only 1.2% resistance but has several hbv mutations anyway altough only 1.2% has resistance to entecavir.
Avatar m tn and you must konw progress and research in hep c,why? beause there is no vaccine. i dont know about other members but best thing members like you can do is contribute to motivate people for vaccination in Hep day, seminars etc. and stop thinking about curing yourself.
Avatar f tn AbbVie is well-positioned to explore combinations and co-formulations of these medicines.
