Common Questions and Answers about Recent news on hiv cure vaccine


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 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 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 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 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.

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.
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 There has been a lot of confusion on these boards in some recent threads and I include myself among the confused. So, from the horses mouth: HCV and HIV are RNA retroviruses. HBV is a DNA virus. However, HBV and HIV only reproduce within cells. HIV uses the DNA of the host cell to reproduce. HCV reproduces free in the bloodstream and not within a cell. This makes HCV much easier to treat with PIs since the virus is exposed during reproduction and the other two are hidden.
300980 tn?1194933000 The bivalent vaccine, Cervarix®, has not been studied in males but remains an option for females if HPV 6 and 11 are not serious concerns. While the basis of the vaccine is recent studies demonstrating that males who received the vaccine are at reduced risk for anal and throat cancers, studies also show that the quadrivalent vaccine reduces risk of genital warts in males and, in theory, may reduce the risk of acquiring infections which could then be transmitted to sex partners.
163305 tn?1333672171 * Or the fabulous 1950 before the polio vaccine, interferon, riba, antivirals for HIV and other viruses, liver transplants, effective chemo treatment when cancer was a death sentence. That's what we need, more suffering, torture and death. Great stuff. For those who believe what is my opinion is 100% nonsense feel free to suffer all you like. It is your life. As for myself and maybe a few other "lost souls" who think we may have some experiences of living in the real world.
Avatar n tn I have three blister looking things on my arm one medium and two small and its red all around it i woke up with them now im scared im going to the docters tommoro but what if they cant do anything i cant live with theese things i would get picked on! Omg help.!
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.
Avatar f tn There's also another complication that a vaccine against Lyme was created some years ago (and sadly, didn't work), but in the process, one of the markers shown in the standard Lyme tests was eliminated because it also lit up on the tests in people who had had the vaccine. Again, to keep the data pure, the CDC eliminated that 'band' on the test, which is silly because the vaccine isn't used at all anymore.

This is another attempt at enhancing the immune response to herpes as a way to decrease the frequency of recurrences and viral shedding for people already infected with HSV 2.

Avatar m tn We all know the cure is on way, what we hoping is that this cure will come soon on market.
Avatar n tn These included feeling very weak, shaking all over, light headed/dizzy,numbness/tingling on fingertips and toes, slight shortness of breath and chill. I felt like passing out, flushed. I figured it was from not eating so I grabbed a burger and it seemed to alleviate the problems. Well, it happened again around the same time of day a few days later. But this time, eating didn't help as much. Eventually the symptoms went away. My colleagues observed that I looked very pale.
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.
Avatar m tn Recent paper on GS-4774 got published in Vaccine. http://www.sciencedirect.
Avatar f tn Does anybody know about this test? I am already on 31st week of Peg+Tdf+Ntz and my doc said I should take this test. If the result is not favourable; meaning difficult to treat and I might have to take Peg to 72 weeks. This month my ALT flares up again. ALT 114 U/L and AST 89 U/L and WBC 2.9.

Avatar f tn HIV is solved.. Bone marrow transplant is a 99% cure. Now only the really rich can afford it done. German clinics I understand are going with this treatment. 2 million euros per patient I understand in a research level facility is what it takes to be hiv free. Here in the US they did also "cure" 2 people from HIV with this procedure that we know of. But for the rest of the people it will be antivirals for a long time to come.
Avatar m tn Sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis of Hep C. Don't be scared. Many people on this forum are married and have children and their family members have not contracted Hep C. Hep C is transmitted by blood to blood contact only, so use universal precautions to avoid any contact of your blood with your family members' blood. Do not share toothbrushes, razors, nail clippers, etc. with any of your family members. Handle blood with disposible gloves.
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.
Avatar f tn That will fund their time and efforts far better then the few private investors. Cure from HBV; HIV and cancer cannot be a product dependent on the venture capital of few rich individuals or one corporation. These are global crisis issues that require global participation.
Avatar f tn articleid=421281 I've read other anecdotal reports about other case's of warts clearing up after the vaccine was administered. There have been no studies done on treating warts with the vaccine (of course since HPV doesn't matter to the medical establishment beyond the known cancer link). But if I do in fact have an active case of HPV causing painful acne/warts/lesions on my face, god knows what such dramatic cell alteration is doing in regards to my overall risk for cancer.
475555 tn?1469307939 Yet the research branch of gov, NIH, has spent the bulk of appropriated research funding for HCV on HIV then reported to congress as HCV specific disease funding. The greater part of NIH-HCV investments; do not advance research for prevention, vaccines, treatments, or cures for the majority afflicted. The data is evident in the charts and documentation compiled from the NIH’s Research Online Reporting Tool (RePORT).
Avatar m tn This means targetting the virus directly probably is not the way to follow to get a cure, but we have to try and awaken the exhausted T-cells so that the immune system itself could take care of the virus. The recent research in finding a cure to hiv in the uk is focussing exactly on reviving T-cell response to the dormant hiv virus.
