188761 tn?1584567620 Update: Since the structure of coronavirus is similar to that of HIV to some extent, HIV ARV medication - Kaletra, which is a combination of lopinavir and ritonavir is seen to be helpful in curing people from the effects of COVID-19 infection. Kaletra is a protease inhibitors, it blocks the protease enzyme, a key enzyme that helps the virus to replicate. Previous studies had found that the drug combination was helpful in preventing SARS, also a coronavirus, from maturing and replicating.
Avatar f tn They ae very painful and no one needs them to complicate an already difficult treatment. 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 Grace, I was reading through some older posts and I have seen that you stated Dr. Halford was doing some interesting research on a vaccine but it was a risky but it was using a live virus. I was wondering if you have any updates on his research? It was mentioned in a post late in 2011. I have tried to find some information online without sucess. Any ideas on the outcome of this? Thanks in advance.

866560 tn?1265061561 I got the H1N1 vaccine and my glucose screening came back great (no 3 hour test for me). My C-section has been scheduled for January 28th. That really made the reality of this pregnancy hit home. On January 28th I am going to be a mommy! I have another ultrasound on the 25th of November, so hopefully this baby will cooperate and let us know what it is, but only time will tell! If not, what a great surprise it will be! I can't believe it! Anyway, just wanted to share my good news!
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 or some amount of it left in my body, and an adenovirus vaccine-induced enhancement of target cells for HIV can cause an infection (kind of delayed seroconversion)? The studies on the HIV vaccine considered 6 months old exposures as high-risk (prior to the administration of the vaccine), if I remember correctly, but I dont know if that was used for behavioural purposes. It isnt clear in the cited studies. 2.
Avatar n tn I would like to ask whether Hepatitis B vaccine impact the window period of HIV testing? Is this negative result is finally conclusive?
Avatar f tn if someone inadvertently injects a quantity of HIV blood into the vaccine bottle can it infect or the vaccine component will inactivate hiv ? If syringes or needles have been used before in a person with HIV what is the possibility of infection.
Avatar m tn it is not enough to test that only you have to test hbsag, hbsab and hbcab igg and igm to have a picture no difference and you ll clear hbv anyway even if no vaccine, anyway you are fully on time and if you dont mind to spend the money for the vaccine you dont need to wait for any test if you want to save money check the tests above and if any positive you had hbv already and cleared, hbv has no symptoms
Avatar n tn Vaccine Campaigns May Be The Cause of New AIDS-Like Disease in Asia and Drug Resistant HIV Affecting Africa Researchers have identified mysterious new symptoms that have left scores of people in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa with an AIDS-like disease and drug-resistant HIV respectively. Coincidentally, vaccine trials took place in several regions in both continents. The patients' immune systems become damaged, leaving them unable to fend off germs as healthy people do.
Avatar m tn no vaccine for hiv. Go to ART centre immediately without wasting time and take prophylactic dose for 28 days continuosly to minimise risk to acquire hiv. Vaccine for hbv doesnt works if u are already exposed to it.
Avatar n tn When does the vaccine start working? If a girl gets her first shot, but not her first/second yet (you have to wait for some months before getting another shot) is she still protected? Or does it take the whole 6 months?
Avatar m tn I went to hospital to have a vaccine yestoday. but when the nurse took out the vaccine from the fridge beside the Injection station, the vaccine fell off from her hand du to her negligence and roll around the bucket full of syringes and needles used before. She took up the vaccine from the ground and gave me a vaccine. There was no obvious blood on the ground near the bucket.
Avatar m tn We need more info., please.....I'd say a vaccine reaction or nerve pain from the injection......The Distemper vaccine seems to be notoriously dangerous, especially for small guys..... If this is a dog that gets vaccinated yearly, then that ups the chances of a serious vaccine reaction....How old is he.... Get your guy back to his Vet today!!! Please, let us know what happened...
Avatar f tn Have you ever had a hepatitis B vaccine? If you are 24 years old this could have been a routine childhood vaccine. This could cause you to read positive but does not mean you have hepatitis.
Avatar f tn But in our country, blood/blood product transfusion is not 100% safe, that being said, some guys contract HBV and HIV from blood transfusion. Although TIG is more expensive and better, I fear it will transmit HIV to me, as it's also kind of human blood product. So, I want to ask whether horses' blood can also be infected by HIV? If not, maybe I will choose TIG.
Avatar f tn Hi , I have taken H1N1 nasal spray vaccine 2 months ago and plan to do HIV test in the next 3 weeks. Is there a possibility that the H1N1 vaccine may result in a false positive HIV elisa blood test?

Avatar f tn What is window period for HEP B, is three months like HIV. Please I need ur time.
Avatar m tn I recently donated a blood, but I received a letter from the blood center saying that my HBcAb core is positive with Ausab is 26, (but I am tested Negative for HIV 1+2 Integral , HIV 1+2, HBs Ag, HCV, RPR, and HTLV 1+2). They asked me to take 3 dose Hepatitis B vaccine, and they can not accept blood from me again. I am a male 44 years old; I never took the Hepatitis B vaccine before. I am wondering why I am tested positive Hepatitis for B Core Antibody , and what does Ausab 26 mean?
Avatar f tn 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 f tn sorry i want to ask in this forum, if only to make me calm, if there is someone who is infected with HIV do not develop p24 antigen and antibodies in 140 days ...?
