Common Questions and Answers about Hiv vaccine trials


Avatar n tn I've heard that the new hiv vaccine is being tried on humans, and it worked on preventing hiv infection in monkeys. does this look promising, anyone thing that this vaccine will eventually work within 5 yrs or less, anyone got more infos on this.

I looked on the FDA website and it still only lists the phase 2. I believe that when it does go to phase 3 it will include a much larger population! They should fast-track this like they do HIV medication. (maybe they are?) Anyway, those of you diagnosed could potentially become part of this trial. Below is the web site on the phase 2 trial.

475555 tn?1469307939 I am 64, in good overall health, recently diagnosed with HCV, genotype 1b, still have pretty good blood markers, and am probably a good patient for drug trials. I know about the NIH trials website, but it isn't patient-friendly and takes a whole lot of time and trouble going through it and then trying to contact the people doing the trial, maybe for nothing. With hundreds of trials going on, I could spend the next year looking for one.
Avatar n tn HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REVOLUTIONARY vaccination technology to prevent and treat genital herpes has reached the next step in clinical trials, with Professor Ian Frazer leading the charge. The new technology aims to be a prevention and cure for the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-2) and if successful, could lead to effective vaccinations or remedies for currently incurable viruses like HIV-AIDS or hepatitis C.
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.
101028 tn?1419606604 viruses constantly mutate and it's not as easy to cure. bill halford's vaccine is in development, hopefully it gets funding and approval for human trials. it looks far more promising than the herpevac did.
Avatar f tn Targeted conditions include Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), HIV/AIDS, and Hepatitis-C (HCV). At present, regulatory barriers specific to the Hemopurifier® do not exist in India.

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.
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 m tn also of note is Admedus received approval to go to Phase 2 clinical trials for their HSV2 vaccine around Xmas last year. They expect interim results sometime this year. Dr. Cullen at Duke is commencing mouse trials for a cure: http://cullenlab.duhs.duke.
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 So I wonder how many vaccines should we get in total? and can they overlap? I know somebody that got polio ouy of the vaccine so,(ok was in the 60s but still)..
Avatar m tn During the initial consultation at the trial site in a nondescript office suite in New York City's Union Square, one of 25 cities where the HIV Vaccine Trials Network conducted the study, a staffer apprised me of what lay ahead. Although the gist was simple enough--three injections of the vaccine over the course of six months, then follow-up visits that would slowly dwindle before ending 4 1/2 years later--the details were harder to comprehend.

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.

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 m tn It was actually two trials. hiv and hep c vaccination. But no clue if attenuated live particles were used. Also a concern for a carrier type that just did not seroconvert. Just don't know what the vaccine consisted of.

Avatar m tn He said that in 4 years they MIGHT have a therapeutic vaccine for HIV to be given to infected people. This will NOT prevent infection and will NOT be a cure. We are not even close to anything of that sort.
