Common Questions and Answers about Hiv vaccine update


Avatar n tn Is anybody familiar with this therapeutic vaccine which is apparently available in russia? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn Update: Well the good news I guess is that I am now immune to hep B Titer level is 150. The pruritis started 7 weeks ago, 24 hrs after after the shot and is still with me, although since I started antihistamines and prednisone a week ago it has started to feel a bit better in the last 24 hours. My doc just had me start increasing the prednisone dosage to 40mg per day for the next week. Then start reducing the dosage for the last 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn I also got a pneumonia vaccine and a flu vaccine (but flu season is about over soon). I agree with the others to get the Hep A and the Hep B vaccines. Let us know how things go and when you start treatment. Here's wishing you the best.
Avatar f tn When come right down to it, it’s all about the money for the drug companies. There next step will be to produce a vaccine for Hep C. My experience with Lambda has been unbelievable. Very few sx during treatment, none that stopped me from any part of my normal life, the lowest my HGB dropped to was 13.8. No sx after treatment. 3 month post treatment and still UND.
Avatar f tn Hi Guys, Anyone with update about Myrcludex B trial please update the community. OCT has been awarded the trial but not much has been heard about the progress.
Avatar n tn Here is the continuation of surfnsand247's original Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine.
654806 tn?1224447378 its been about a month since I found out that Im HIV+. I like to think I've improved on how I feel...but still there are times when Im depressed. It feels like a roller coaster...days im feelings so good about myself and life...then theres days that all I think about is HIV. Today I woke up so pain...helpless...(emotionally) I didnt know what to do! hearts racing while Im getting ready for work.
Avatar n tn You could not have acquired HIV or HBV. Condoms are 100% protective against both. Now having looked at the rest of your message: Your symptoms don't suggest either HIV or heptaitits, and in any case neither of those infections can cause symptoms less than a couple of weeks after exposure. Hepatitis prevention isn't my specialty, but I believe you are beyond the immune globulin window, but you don't it anyway based on your exposure history. Just complete the vaccine series.
Avatar m tn For God's Grace you guys should be 100% right about it because nobody wants to get this killing virus. Now still due to my anxiety I want to Laboratory where they did my HIV Rapid test at 1 month & 3 months post exposure resulting into Non-Reactive. So according your doctors & moderators at Med Help I m conclusive Negative & don't even needed any testing.
Avatar n tn I am always looking at him seeing if he has any ARS symptoms, and pick out every spot or pimple on him, hoping it has nothing to do with HIV. then I go look up HIV symptoms and it freaks me out. Right now he has poison ivy or something on his leg and I keep thinking it is a rash from HIV, thinking I had it and gave it to him, even though I tested for everything and it was neg. Its the window period that kills me, still after I was tested at 4 months after. I don't's horrible.
Avatar m tn Officials said they were not testing air travelers from Mexico for the virus. UPDATE 1-U.S. acts swiftly to contain swine flu outbreak The CDC is preparing a "yellow card" for travelers explaining the flu symptoms and what precautions to take, Schuchat said. U.S. health officials are stressing frequent hand washing as the first line of defense against the virus.
Avatar m tn Thanks .. I will do it first thing on Monday ..
Avatar m tn My test results are as follows; 4 Weeks HIV - Negative 8 Weeks HIV - Negative 12 Weeks HIV (31st of October)/86 Days - Negative I've noticed my anxiety slightly creep back up, I don't know why. I've read online on the website called 'TheBody' which states that upwards of 6 MONTHS may be required for a conclusive HIV result? I'm unsure if my results are conclusive, I got tested around 86 days after my last encounter. I've had no other sexual encounter from that time until now.
Avatar n tn Cant someone come up with a cure and vaccine for HIV and Herpes........all that wasting of money fighting wars.....urrrggghhhh!
Avatar n tn I always use condoms and I get tested every three months or so here in Dubai for HIV, Hep B and others...all negative so far. About 6 or 8 weeks ago I had a condom slip off during vaginal sex and I got a bit of a scare. I posted a question to you at that time and your reassurance was very comforting...thank you. I mentioned that after the incident the girl agreed to get tested for HIV which came out negative.
Avatar f tn Update: the patients rapid hiv test came back negative (im somewhat relieved) but hepatitis B & C will still pending for a few more days. Thank you all for your responses. I just have to try and get my mind off of this until I get all the results. But I've decided to opt out of taking the hiv prophylaxis since the patient tested negative right now.
Avatar m tn kindly do let me know is it possible to have anal cancer at the age of 28 years specially in heterosexual male with negative hiv and other stds do help me out i am so tensed beacause my anal symptoms .
Avatar f tn What if it was a syringe !? What is my risk guys do you suggest me to visit infection control !? I have already taken HBV vaccine last year so I think I don't have any problems with HBV , but what about HIV !? What is my risk !? Do I need to take PEP !? I am really scared !!!!!!!!!!! Because I read the needlestick inside health care settings can result infection !?
Avatar m tn any update about the Scigen Israel Sci-B-Vacvaccine? can you ask them if you can increase response to it by use of peginterferon or imiquimod on skin where you inject it?
Avatar f tn What is window period for HEP B, is three months like HIV. Please I need ur time.
Avatar m tn Yesterday, wanted to have further closure, went and took an Oraquick HIV test. Results also negative. I understand that a conclusive result for HIV is not available until 3 months post encounter. I also understand that the chance of getting HIV from Oral is next to nothing. I guess I am just panicked and sorely disappointed in myself. I am married. Happily. We have had unprotected sex twice since the incident ( a week after and two weeks 3 days after ).
Avatar m tn It then struck me that I could be exposed to HIV virus. I asked her if she was clean and though her English was poor, she kept saying "no problem". After I returned to US, I told my doctor about the entire incident and she advised me to go through some blood test. The doctor mentioned that it usually takes 6 months for the HIV test to show up anything. She kept saying that you are "low risk, but there is some possiblity".
Avatar n tn ACE as you probably know is the only dependable test to monitor and diagnose Sarcoidosis, but is still not totally specific to Sarcoidosis. I should mention when they were testing me they checked for Tuberculosis, and HIV, but I had no chronic cough that would indicate severe infection either. I hope you have good news, and repost if you have more questions.
Avatar n tn # NACO, Observed HIV Prevalence Levels State Wise: 1998-2004 # UNAIDS, AIDS Epidemic Update December 2005 # Chandrasekaran P., Dallabetta G. et al. (2006), 'Containing HIV/AIDS in India: the unfinished agenda', The Lancet Infectious Diseases, vol. 6 no. 8: 508-521, August. I can give you many many reasons but i am writting my conclusion below: Hiv in india spreds through hetrosexual ways (85 %) (2005). Among the populations 40% are women.Around less than 1 % of people are infected with it.
Avatar n tn Dont' worry I have been going through a wide variety of other STD tests and HIV screening since the event. And mental health counselling. I just want to make myself feel a little better between now and the tests at 6 months. I would like to know if it is possible highly or unlikely. Thanx for the replys.
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 m tnHIV: Start prophylaxis within two hours of exposure. HIV PEP should include a four-week regimen of two drugs (zidovudine [ZDV] and lamivudine [3TC]; 3TC and stavudine [d4T]; or didanosine [ddI] and d4T) for most exposures and an expanded regimen that includes a third drug for HIV exposures that pose an increased risk for transmission.
Avatar f tn i have unprotected sex 3 months ago with a sex worker..... i am negative of hiv thru hiv rapid test.... i also tested for hepatitis b here's the result: Hbsag - nonreactive anti hbs - reactive anti hbc igc - reactive my question: 1. am i safe now and for the coming years ahead? 2. am i contagious and pass it to my wife and children?
Avatar m tn Their texture is a bit like those of know when your take vaccine and afterwards you have a permanent pimple. When I touch them they hurt a tiny bit (which I consider to be unusual). One on down my throat, 3 on my shoulder and chest. All on the right side. I wish I could post a pic. does that give any relevant clue ? I-m gonna check a doctor next week see if he has any helpful input.. I don't know if I am being paranoid about that. That-s the only thing I really noticed for now.
Avatar f tn org/posts/STDs/Worried-sick/show/1842584#post_8514318 On my 88th day, I went and took the standard antibody test for hiv 1/O/2 and it came out negative. I think that I would nail my fears of hiv deep to the ground. These 3 months I have read so many threads of you guys to all poor folks like me.
