Avatar m tn Did they find any cure or vaccine to prevent hiv?
Avatar m tn I'm referring to this latest news about hiv research which is also a retrovirus like hbv: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/10/02/hiv-cure-close-after-disease-vanishes-from-blood-of-british-man/ "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 so far theirs no cure for hiv/aids there trying it on monkeys atlease thats what ive heard
163305 tn?1333668571 11 PM In a poetic turn of virology, the scientist who discovered hepatitis C in 1989 has now also discovered a vaccine that will hopefully cure the now-incurable disease. Not only is it poetic, it's an accomplishment that many thought was impossible. 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.
1530342 tn?1405016490 A vaccine is FAR more likely than a cure. For MOST viral infections, there is no cure, and with HIV, a retrovrius, it is unlikely. We still don't have a cure for the common cold, and influenza. A cure would be wonderful, but just think of all the other diseases out there with no cure, only treatments. The thing to be thankful for is how far we've come in the treatment for HIV/AIDS. MANY people are living completely normal life spans...

Avatar n tn The only reason they havent diagnosed me with aids is because i test negative on an hiv test. Keep in mind i never got tested during the 1-10 year period after possible exposure. The reason im saying this is because there could be many people in the same position as me that need to be on medication and arent because they test hiv negative.

Avatar f tn 3. I read the France news they say they already find the AIDS therapeutic vaccine, is that real ? If yes is that means HIV can be Treatment soon?
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 n tn Some people on this site feel that it is very hard to get HIV/AIDS, but I think this is an eye opener. I would like to see what the experts have to say? A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected.
Avatar m tn https://www.hhmi.org/news/radical-vaccine-design-effective-against-herpes-viruses Appears released about a week ago, very recent...successful in mouse studies, next stop full animal trials, then clinical.
Avatar m tn Until recently I was very uneducated on the reality of transmission of HIV. Unfortunately I had limited non-scare tactic education on the matter. If Teak, Lizzie, Vance, or anyone who is knowledgable could provide answers or cite where I could research the answers that would be helpful. 1.). What affect if any does Subtype (ex B vs CRF A/E) have on modes/ means of transmission? 2.) Does subtype affect which cells are more likely to be targeted in the event of transmission? 3.
Avatar m tn any latest news on herpes vaccine? and also will there possible be cure any time in future?
Avatar f tn The national aids conference was yesterday and I heard that on the news. So I do not need to test at all more????
Avatar f tn I just read the recent article in Scientific American on the latest research on AIDS and the challenges facing the scientific community in this endeavor. There is still a great deal of work to be done. But cases like a 14y/o child living with this hanging over her head since birth has just got to make us all more determined to beat this thing.
Avatar f tn Rapid treatment after HIV infection may be enough to "functionally cure" about a 10th of those diagnosed early, say researchers in France. They have been analysing 14 people who stopped therapy, but have since shown no signs of the virus resurging. It follows reports of a baby girl being effectively cured after very early treatment in the US. However, most people infected with HIV do not find out until the virus has fully infiltrated the body.
Avatar m tn Hi, Anti HAV antibody is a test for Hepatitis A antibody not HIV. If you dad had a vaccine or past infections for Hepatitis A it would be positive for IgG antibody and negative for IgM. So, if he had the vaccine he is immune to Hepatitis A. If he didn't have the vaccine he was exposed to in sometime in his life (in the past) and is immune to the virus and is not sick now and won't transmit it to his family or friends. No this is not in any way a test for AIDS.
Avatar m tn any news on a cure of Herpes? I know people would rather get a cure of HIV but herpes can be just as bad and I am sure it has lead to some peoples suicide. anyone know of the latest news?
163305 tn?1333668571 Recent news of a man being cured of AIDS form a bone marrow transplant has me wondering if one would help rid us of HCV? Any ideas? http://www.dispatch.co.za/article.aspx?
Avatar n tn If i gave head to a girl what are the odds of contracting the aids virus. I know she was in Chile this summer and had sex there with a Chilean boy. And there's a sex revolution in Chile everyone is having sex. I am worried she might have contracted the virus and maybe me too.
Avatar m tn No there is no vaccine available to date for HIV. Care is the only cure, known to mankind today.
