Common Questions and Answers about Latest news on hiv cure vaccine hiv aids

hiv

Avatar m tn It was a devastating denouement for anyone aware of the stakes--experts widely believe that a vaccine, if not a cure, is the only thing that can turn around the runaway HIV/AIDS pandemic. But like a thriller, this trial held one last plot surprise in store: People who had received the vaccine were in fact becoming infected with HIV at a higher rate than those in the placebo group.
Avatar n tn is only a few years. Providers who are not AIDS experts should be forgiven if they are unaware of the latest information. Many providers tend to worry about lawsuits, so they lean toward conservative advice--and the longer you go, the more reliable a negative HIV test. On top of that, a lot of docs simply don't understand the concept of "predictive value"--about which more below.

Come on people....fellow HEPPERS put an L in there and lets be heLppers! Are we going to sit by because we are "too fatigued by our disease"??? Heppers UNITE!!! https://www.change.

Avatar m tn For relief from the crawling try an antihistime, something like Zyrtec. It gave me great relief. Still on the trail of the cure for this thing, next is to sprinkle borax on the carpets and leave for a week & repeat. Someone had success with this so it is worth a try.
561476 tn?1220959376 I'm sad to say that for the first time today I refused packaging that had a pink ribbon on it. Yes I went to my local grocery store and on their paper bags for this month they are supporting pink ribbons, and I asked for plastic instead. I will no longer support the pink ribbon until they stop hogging everything.
264121 tn?1313033056 HIV/AIDS by comparison has many more transmisson vectors which make the spread of the disease harder to control. Furthermore, funding in the US for HIV/AIDS research is not just based on the needs of HIV/AIDS patients in the US, but the ENTIRE WORLD, as the genesis of any threat to our national security would undoubtedly be a result of the pandemic nature of HCV, not as a result of US infections. We face no such danger from HCV. Another reason for the higher funding of HIV/AIDS research.
475555 tn?1469307939 Liver, All FYI- The CDC established the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) an integration of existing programs with new programs, like Viral Hepatitis, was developed to correlate with the HIV/AIDS management model based on specific risks and disease pathology. STD and Substance Abuse programs associated with the spread of HIV/AIDS received increased attention and funding, blurring the other components of HCV disease.

Avatar f tn The ones near my left temple are sore right now and I haven't squeezed them at all and the latest one on my right cheek is sore to the touch. This is just about my last resort and it's going to cost almost $400 for the three shots since I don't have medical insurance yet. I'm hoping the vaccine helps me the way it helped the guy in this case report: http://archderm.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?
Avatar f tn I think it's a TEMPORARY patch at best until they can develop a real cure that isn't like putting gasoline on a fire (and for some people that is how adding on vertex is, they can't handle the peg/riba already). Having people get to UND quickly is a great thing but...until we know that falsely manipulating the virus into an unmeasurable status doesn't mess with the long term SVR results (coming from the shortened duration of peg/riba) - I'm not too jazzed about it.
408795 tn?1324939275 They won't care until they get it or a loved one of theirs gets it then they will see how ridiculous it is to throw stigma and blame and guilt on people without any question. Just like HIV was considered the "gay men's disease" people eventually did begin to realize that was no longer true and it had spread to the wives at home.......hopefully people will start to realize that it's all about having a disease and not how you got it.
Avatar m tn HIV protease inhibitor cocktails have been used for years to effectively manage HIV/AIDS patients and to reduce their disease from a death sentence to a chronically managed disease (and is why people like Magic Johnson remain alive and healthy so many years after being infected). And although these anti-HIV PI cocktails do not cure HIV patients, that certainly doesn't mean that anti-HCV PI cocktails will not be capable of curing HCV patients.
Avatar n tn yes that would be the best option, CFS researcher made the same thing since many governments are trying to hide XMRV virus which is actually more spread than hiv and a real cause of aids. by the way is rep9ac compound public, if there is apatent it should be?if so any advanced biolab can make it like it happened for gcmaf, especially where there is no patent coverage.
Avatar n tn BREAKING NEWS: A CURE HAS BEEN FOUND on HepaB! Mababawi mo pa ba BUHAY MO? Isip isip din!
Avatar m tn this also means tissues are still vit d deficient hiv and tdf used on hiv have nothing to share with us hbvers, even tdf sides are different and in very little percentages close for us
Avatar n tn marketing on these type of drugs is very disgusting this combo tdf+ftc is used on hiv-hbv coinfection, on people who has mutated virus due to previous lam, adfovir or etv resistance mutation, on people on uncompendated cirrhosis on transplant list or on people on compensated cirrhosis after you find all the trials writing tdf+ftc instead of truvada you see that it is used on the most difficult cases and where the damage to the liver is very severe.
Avatar f tn stay on baraclude, hbe ag is still present and overall virus has increased because hbs ag has increased, relapse is almost certain since there is no immune control (in that case you would have had hbsag decline), entecavir is perfectly safe with almost no sides, resistance is 1% at 6 years (i am on entecavir too) if you like you can combo with alinia and see if hbsag declines, check also your vitamin D level, i had many cold/flu problems due to severe deficency which is present in almost all he
Avatar m tn yes of course it is better to have full vit d levels because ntz uses interferon pathways and interferon+vit d levels has increased svr on hcv if you have a chance to use simvastatin i'd start that too before ntz, also sim is able to increase interferon response because interferon acts same way as sim by lowering intracellular cholesterol levels, sim is less potent on intracellular cholesterol but better than nothing What about your latest d3 level? Hopefully the earlier report war wrong.

Avatar n tn I went to GUM, they couldn't see it and gave me the all clear - telling me I was free to have unprotective sex if I wanted (but safe sex was still advised). On return home, I could still find the wart. I used Warticon on it again. It vanished. Then it came back. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I went back to GUM and told them the story. I also told them I thought that blue Warticon ink was pretty terrible to use. No problem they say - we'll freeze it off.
Avatar f tn A possible cure for Hepatitis? Posted on the KeelyNet BBS on May 15, 1992 as HEPATITS.ASC -------------------------------------------------------------------- This article was from Health Counselor magazine July/August 1991 issue. This is an excellent magazine for information on nature health care and nutrition. You can usually find it, at your local health food store. They usually give it away for free. Or ask your health food store to carry it.
Avatar f tn Yes, Milk Thistle is a topic that comes up a lot. Overall, the consensus seems to be that it can be helpful before and after treatment, with a split decision during treatment. I've found the current discussion educational and have learned a few things not previously posted. I hope others have as well. Personally, I only took milk thistle once before treatment but it made me sleepy. Same with St. John's Wort.
Avatar n tn I would imagine so, but am hoping for some studies or statistics on the matter so I can show it to him. I would greatly appreciate any response...thank you.

Avatar m tn took some time of from work in the hopes of starting antibody production we tested for everything and had slight movment on hep titer and syph titer.they wouldnt show me my hiv results so i dont know what they said other than they were neg.the only reason i need a positive is so i can persaude my sons doctor to test him because it appears to me that hrough household transmission he has what i have and he could be running out of time .
17568 tn?1424977159 I find it mighty interesting then that the NIH gives him credence, the FDA enlists his services, the American Cancer Society mentions him among other doctors in the references on their page on Alpha Lipoic Acid, the Australian Hep C site has a thorough and authoritative article written by someone else on his protocol and the Canadian CATIE site for AIDS makes mention of his protocol as well. And that was all on a brief search on Alpha Lipoic Acid alone.
