Avatar m tn Although the researchers have registered an Israeli patent, the treatment must still go through trials on animals and humans, the latest edition of the British journal AIDS Research and Therapy says. Peptides, unique short protein segments developed by the researchers, can interfere with replication and at the same time overwhelm the infected cell, triggering its self-destruction.

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 f tn Hey. Straight to the point. Your viral load will continue to climb up, everyday. When you stop taking your meds, it gives the HIV in your body a chance to multiply and it wont ever stop multiplying when you are off of your meds. It multiplies in your blood, in your organs and in your brain. They cant measure the amount of HIV in your organs because it hides there. But your viral load is continuing to go up all the time.
149675 tn?1416676733 and those were made pretty damm available (relatively speaking) to people suffering with HIV, at least in THIS country.... Current treatment protocols are less then say the least....I would think that any treatment protocols that would improve on them to a great extent...would be expedited.... Of course, got some wishful thinking here but this is another scenario that I feel should be considered...
Avatar n tn Hi, I just came back from my doctor's office (for those who don't know me I am/was 1b, between stages 2 and 3 on my biopsy 3 years ago, high viral load to begin with, 120 IU/ml at 12 weeks, undetectable at 24 weeks).I am on week 39 of Pegasys/Rebetol treatment. I asked my doctor what he thinks about extending treatment beyond 48 weeks and he said it's up to me. He can presribe another 12/24 weeks of treatment at either regular dose or reduced dose.
Avatar m tn So happy to hear the news. First in a series of good news installments, I'm sure. I knew that Beagle pup across the street (and all the Beagles everyone else has spotted) was part of some magical team sent to Earth to help you out.
Avatar m tn If you are e-positive then the end of treatment is becoming e-negative. If you are e-negative then the end of treatment is less clear and needs further discussion.
Avatar m tn at the moment we don't have a tx with no sides and no resistance which leads to hbsag loss in a very high percentage and according to this article it is synergistic with nucs and interferon alinia is already on the market FDA-approved treatment for Cryptosporidium
233488 tn?1310696703 Hagan III MD, FACS, FAAO This is a reprint of an editorial in the July 2011 American Journal of Ophthalmology and represents the latest information on floaters. It references a second article from the same issue which I will also post. ARTICLE FOLLOWS: In 1976, Dr Ernst Wynder, founding president of the American Health Foundation and founding editor of the journal Preventive Medicine, stated that “It should be the function of medicine to help people die young…as late in life as possible.
Avatar m tn 5 months as Doctor told me that this treatment will be given under there supervision , please suggest which treatment is suitable under these report.Also with vaccine this problem will be solved and how long i have to take this treatment.
29837 tn?1414538248 He also mentioned that it will be at least six years before there’s a treatment without Interferon and the nasty Ribavirin. Can you wait? To his3707 As to your question of how do you go about getting the "compassionate use" of Telaprivir before its release? Aside from begging, you have your doctor fill and present a series of documents to the FDA and eventually Vertex. Search my archives on this and it will tell you everything, including where you can download the documents, etc...
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.
Avatar m tn Certainly, patients with intermittent atrial fibrillation typically do better than those with chronic atrial fibrillation, but we are not privy to the number of procedures a patient has to undergo to achieve the success rate suggested by the physician operator in this news segment.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
475555 tn?1469307939 If the Vertex or Merck drugs are approved next year and become part of a patient’s cocktail, as company executives predict, it may reduce treatment time to six months from a year. Treatment that avoids the current regimen may still be some years away, Kauffman said. Vertex this month began a trial of telaprevir with an experimental drug called VX-222, a different type of antiviral, to see if the two drugs can defeat the virus.
229411 tn?1189759425 Is there an AVERAGE a person with HIV who does not know they have the disease and has not sought treatment live? Or rather, how long can they go without getting so sick they end up going to a hospital and then find out they have HIV? Do you think after 7 years a person would show any signs? A non-healthy person who eats bad, smokes and drinks a lot and doesnt excersise. So they are not in top shape to begin with.
219062 tn?1189759425 I deleted my old spreadsheet, but will post the latest one. Most of us that used it have gone on post treatment, but its still active and available, sorta for after hours stuff.... cheers. c.
Avatar n tn I've had 6 single exposure unprotected oral sex with white women (can't be sure about their HIV status) in the past 2 years. The latest unprotected cunnilingus was just over 7 weeks ago and the latest unprotected fellatio (I received fellatio) was about 6 months ago. No symptoms (no fever, no sores, I believe no rashes, no painful urination). I went to the clinic for testing for STDs and HIV this past Tuesday and waiting to hear my results.
Avatar f tn More on HBeAg, before treatment Dec 2007, it was Pos S/co=371.2. 6months into treatment (July 08), HbeAg Neg S/co=0.748. Latest Dec 2009, HbeAg eg S/co=0.092. Can you tell more of my case in this? Also, do you have experience/advices regarding birth control issue for female carrier.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with genotype 2 in January 2011, commenced 24 week treatment of Peginteferon/Ribavirin in April, undetectable at 4 weeks, and again at 12 weeks, just completed treatment and awaiting results from latest tests. Fingers crossed.
253566 tn?1219683299 Mine was normal both before and during treatment, but dropped and remained low normal for over a year post treatment. My symptons aren't as bad as yours, so haven't supplemented the testosterone, but you might consider at least trying it, even if you're in the low or perhaps even mid-normal range. You also mention your lab results are out of whack. What tests specifically aren't right?
Avatar n tn Five months is more than enough time, no matter what HIV test was used, in India or any other country. Whatever is causing your symptoms, it isn't HIV. Anxiety or depression sounds like a good bet. Also, nobody has ever been proved to catch HIV by receiving oral sex. NEVER ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IN 20+ YEARS OF AIDS! There have been such reports, but I stress "proved". If it occurs, it is too rare to measure.
Avatar m tn For Thanksgiving, he's preparing to go back to West Virginia for the first time in years and break the HIV news (if not the gay news) to his grandmother. His immediate family backs the decision. "My mother said, 'You have to give your family a chance to love you,'" he says. CHARLES Now working in Albany, N.Y.
1530063 tn?1372268607 provides state-of-the-science information in Curing Hepatitis C -- a new book that outlines the latest treatment protocols that offer the outcome of complete cure from this disease. In a breakthrough publication, leading hepatologist and hepatitis C expert Gregory Everson, M.D. provides state-of-the-science information to guide patients through the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C. Until recently, hepatitis C was considered incurable.
29837 tn?1414538248 I hope that you are correct about them accepting some past treatment failures as there aew a few people that I know who might be interested. The sad news that I have is that I have heard that there may not be a roll over trial. I don't know if that is "set in stone" yet. IF there was a roll over one would get the triple therapy sooner or later. They would also get the additional data about how past treatment failures can still respond following a recent course of triple therapy.
Avatar m tn Hi, If anyone can suggest me the best place for treatment of Hepatitis B in India? I have tried hard but could not find a hospital is specialised for such treatment.
173930 tn?1196341998 Survey seems consistent with what I've seen posted here. Most telling to me is that 40% reported feeling worse after treating than before: 29% reported feeling about the same; and 31% reported feeling better after treatment. What that means is that around 2 out of 3 people felt either worse or no different after treating. This should be a reality check for those who treat primarily because of the so-called extra-hepatatic symptons, i.e. to feel better.
