Common Questions and Answers about News on hiv cure vaccine


Avatar n tn For now, it may be easier to work on accepting herpes for what it is, rather than focus on a cure or vaccine, which at the very best, is years and years away.
Avatar f tn There is no cure but there is some good news concerning a HIV vaccine from the States. Basically, while still at research level, this has been tested on monkeys and could lead to a 8 month HIV resistance vaccine. Look up the BBC science website for more information. Let's keep our finger's crossed.
163305 tn?1333672171 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.
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.
101028 tn?1419606604 This is sad but I still am hopeful for a cure and a vaccine. I mean, we have bionic eyes now for people who lost their sight. I never thought that would be possible but I was proven wrong. I'm sure there will be a cure for not only HSV 1 and 2 but for other diseases as well.
Avatar n tn There will never be a vaccine for HIV. The millions spent on that are a complete waste of resources, IMO. A cure is also unlikely, definitely won't happen in the next 10 years. Better treatment? Almost certainly. It is getting much better with every year now.
Avatar m tn BLUE BELL, Pa., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INO) announced today that its synthetic hepatitis B (HBV) therapeutic vaccine generated strong T cell responses that eliminated targeted liver cells in mice.
Avatar m tn Ignorance is what amuzes me. One there is no cure, Two you can't get any medication on the market in less than ten years. There are several years of animal trials, there are several years of human trials. There is years of examination of the data from the FDA.
Avatar n tn I had the shot in late October and have just started heavy duty anti histamines (Adarax) and prednisone a week ago (Dec4) to supress what my doctors classify as an over immune response. Glaxco has been unhelpful in providing info on a possible cure/treatment and how long it may take to go away. This company admits that in 0.03 to 0.05 % of shots that this reaction can happen, but it is "very rare".
Avatar f tn f) There still looms the possibility that we may see proof that this compound may have higher cure rates on the prior treatment failures (in the Prove 3 trial) than Boceprevir; still way too early to make a call on that but several Prove 3's here seem to have achieved RVR's quite early and were able to maintain them. This bodes well as a predictor of SVR.

277836 tn?1359669774 I don't agree with what you posted period. Do you have any idea how wealthy a drug company will be if they could find a cure? They would make a lot more money for a cure than they could ever make on R&D on new drugs.
Avatar f tn they don't want to be cured cause then they lose their money, the vaccine is all they care about..I want this cure people, let's fine away to get it. People are dying hpv and cancer, let's get saved before we see that fate, aav2 is the cure.
206807 tn?1331939784 The world has known about Ebola for almost 40 years, yet there's no cure or vaccine on the market. That could change amid worldwide attention to the ongoing outbreak of the virus in West Africa, which has claimed more than 3,000 lives already, and the first diagnosis of a patient with the disease in the United States. But not for a few more years -- at least.
Avatar n tn Once you go to fda website click on vaccine, blood and biologics on top. Then click on middle box h1n1 lot release. Then it will show a list of the vaccine makers once you scroll down. Click on the one who vaccinated you and the package insert that they send to the doctors is there. Once I went to the one who vaccinated me I called and filed a report and spoke to their nurse.
Avatar m tn Then they started to use these compounds to treat HIV. Despite the fact that even in the 80s bone marrow transplants that seem to cure hiv as we know now were suggested back then. As for combo therapy with immuno inhanser like interferon or Zadaxin they also new it that it works better. But this option only now is at least being discussed more widely. As for giving antivirals to hbv naive patients with healthy livers as the first line of treatment - it is a bad idea.
Avatar m tn In this forum, we are here to share knowledge and experience, to help and support each other. Now and then, we also raise hope by passing on news about encouraging new scientific and medical developments. What we don't do is to say, hey, there are cures out there but the scientists and pharma are just not interested.

Avatar m tn Now somebody profits off the research funds. While others still profiting on what they have developed for hiv. That is really the sad part.
475555 tn?1469307939 If a vet does not have any of the CDC/HIV risk factors, his claim is denied based on that fact. Here's an example Another note of interest... the 2.6 million vets that served prior to the war on terror, are not counted in the proclaimed CDC numbers of infected people , nor are their deaths. As for the war on terror, our kids are coming home in record numbers, sick with Hep C. We have a intercommunication that the military that verify this.
475555 tn?1469307939 I mean, where are the news reports on vaccines and antifibrotics? Everything concentrated on SOC and additions to SOC. Nothing else is discussed or funded.
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.
Avatar n tn With that said I have searched on the life expectancies and so on of people with HIV. Most cases seem to say around 20 years or so can be expected with proper treatment. But with AIDS only really be recognized for the last 25 years, isn't it possible that such an estimate is quite under the reality?
Avatar n tn 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. 3) As I have said many times, there is no time cut-off for the last HIV result that applies with equal usefulness for all patients.
Avatar m tn "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.
1797925 tn?1341099804 Please keep asking all the people that you can reach to sign this petition and lets try to get Gilead to 'see the light' before millions of us reach the point where even a cure is too late. 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.
220090 tn?1379170787 This is the reason it is possible to cure HCV with a PI, but HIV and HBV are not curable with PIs. The current PIs attack the Ns3 protease within the RNA and since they are very selective, the can't inhibit reproduction of all mutations of the virus; thus, SOC is required along with the PI. The newer PIs in early stages, attack a broader range and the polymerase inhibitors take an entirely different approach.
Avatar m tn Another good news. But they need to start testing it now on human volunteers.
1191262 tn?1366766621 I am an HBV (Hbe Neg) carrier and have been on Tenofovir (Viread) since December 2009. Dr evaluated me and said that I had to start treatment even though viral load wasn't very high 59000UI/ml, AST and ALT in normal range according to old standards (ALT = 32 was the maximum I reached) and Liver Biopsy came back with stage 1. The new recommendations were to start treating at a low viral load.
Avatar f tn Two month later (In October), I had HIV test at HIV clinic (considered as the best hiv research center of the country) The result was negative. But guess what. I was scared the needle and scared of blood so I did not look when the nurse prepare the needle and vacutainer holder. I only remembered that the holder was not in the plastic bag. The nurse picked it up from somewhere and used it on me. So, I am worried again.
