Common Questions and Answers about Rsv treatment ribavirin


Avatar f tn No. Only current flu vaccine protects you against the various strains of flu. If you read the Ribavirin Prescribing Information for ribavirin, right at the top of the label it says... Indications and Usage for Ribavirin 'The safety and efficacy of Ribavirin tablet therapy for the treatment of adenovirus, RSV, parainfluenza or influenza infections have not been established. Ribavirin tablets should not be used for these indications.
Avatar m tn Moroxydine HCl is an antiviral used for the prevention and treatment of influenza. Ribavirin is also an antiviral that is indicated for severe RSV infection, Hepatits C, or other viral infections.
Avatar m tn ENTA) announced that it has expanded its research and development programs within the company’s core focus areas of virology and liver disease to include new programs to treat hepatitis B virus (HBV) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections. Enanta also announced that the first subject was dosed in a phase 1 clinical study with EDP-494, its cyclophilin inhibitor for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV).
Avatar m tn They have been treating her with an array of antibiotics including Ribavirin and IVIG for the RSV and they now believe they have taken care of the infections and are awaiting cultures to confirm. She has been receiving plasmapheresis daily for the TTP and her platelet count has gone from 59 to 130. She is also receiving intravenous Plaquenil, CellCept, and Prednisone for her lupus.
Avatar f tn Yes the new drugs boceprevir and telaprevir will include interferon and ribavirin as part of the treatment. If you respond quickly to treatment with these new drugs you may be able to treat for 24-28 weeks rather then the traditional 48 weeks for genotype 1 with just interferon and ribavirin. Side effects vary enormously from person to person. Some have few to none, some have many, and the bulk of us are somewhere in between.
Avatar n tn So i was wondering if somebody was given Ribavirin for RSV outside the window period (two years after last unprotected incident exactly) and days later undergoes Elisa testing; is Ribavirin effective enough to decrease the immune system's exposure to HIV to a point in which it would blunt antibodies response, therefore leading to a false negative? or producing a false negative in any other way?
Avatar f tn I took my 4 week old to the ER and they told me he has RSV. They just gave me a paper on it, They didn't really tell me what to do except suction out his nose. I read the paper ad it told me that in mild disease that no specific treatment is necessary. So I guess he is only a mild case, but I don't know how to tell if he is getting worse. I read on another site that family history of asthma puts him at a higher risk for becoming a severe case. I am know wen he is getting worse?
Avatar f tn I just had my beautiful son on Nov 30 th! And already he is sick! My baby was taking to hospital 3days ago. And I found out he had RSV it's a viral affection u get from being around someone sick. My daughter had a bad cold and I assuming he got it from his big sissy which is only 1 by the way but it's sad because how do u tell ur 1 old to stay away from there baby brother.
Avatar f tn they start out with congestion and then a cough which has lead to bronchitis,pneumonia,and rsv?which out of those 6 months each one has had pneumonia,with rsv together and by itself?and my 2yearold has had bronchitis more? I keep taking em to their pediatrician and our hospitals ER and they just continue antibiotics with breathing treatments and steriods?what should i do?
Avatar m tn Abstract The combination of pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) and ribavirin is the standard treatment for chronic hepatitis C. Our recent clinical study suggests that ribavirin augments the induction of interferon-stimulated genes (ISGs) in patients treated for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. In order to further characterize the mechanisms of action of ribavirin, we examined the effect of ribavirin treatment on ISG induction in cell culture.
Avatar f tn They said she had RSV, they could either suck some snot out and test it and tell me she has RSV, or just tell me she has it and the treatment will be the same - her cough was also barky (croup like) at night, so she told me to wrap her up and sit outside and let her breathe in the cold air. I hope its not RSV, but if it is a mild case and isnt in her lungs and she is eating and drinking ok, they probably wont do anything anyway.
Avatar m tn Hello, my fellow dragon-fighting friends. I haven't been on this board for so long I was surprised it remembered my user name and password. I've seen all of this excitement about Acai Berry and Colon Cleanse, etc. with regard to weight loss, much more energy and improved memory. I haven't taken any yet because I wanted to do some research on it first, as any good HepC patient should do.
4670047 tn?1375730401 I was just wondering how long some of you took the ribavirin after your last shot. I'm going to call the Dr. On Monday and ask. But I'm just a little anxious, my last shot is Mon. night. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Our doctor said antibiotics will not do anything for RSV. The also gave him nebuliser treatment to help with chest congestion. Make sure to keep up with fluids.
457040 tn?1206127803 Interferon treatment for hep c entails injecting yourself or being injected once a week with pegylated interferon as well as taking pills of ribavirin twice a day.
Avatar m tn The treatment is Sovaldi + ribavirin by Gilead Sciences. According to the FUSION drug trial you have an excellent chance of curing your hep C. "FUSION was a randomized, double-blinded trial that evaluated 12 or 16 weeks of treatment with SOVALDI and ribavirin in subjects who did not achieve SVR with prior interferon-based treatment (relapsers and nonresponders). Subjects were randomized in a 1:1 ratio and stratified by cirrhosis (presence vs. absence) and HCV genotype (2 vs.3).
Avatar f tn If a person does not have RSV can they cause an infant to get RSV just by having a common cold
1155994 tn?1262364190 As far as I can tell, either is likely to offer a cure rate in the range of 75%-85%. Just the Interferon/Ribavirin treatment is closer to 50%. I just couldn't see doing a year with nasty side-effects for a 50% cure rate when something else was available. Part of what influenced me was the risk of permanent side-effects, which you can hear more about elsewhere on this forum.
Avatar m tn Female patients receiving ribavirin and the partners of male patients receiving ribavirin must avoid pregnancy, using at least two reliable forms of contraception, during treatment and for 6 months after completion of treatment. To monitor maternal-fetal outcomes of pregnant women or female partners of male patients exposed to ribavirin, a Ribavirin Pregnancy Registry has been established. Healthcare providers are encouraged to register patients by calling 1-800-593-2214 (USA).
Avatar m tn Yes. With the older Pegasys & Ribavirin treatment, people had to be virus free for about 10 years before claiming they were cured. With the new triple therapy (Pegasys, Ribavirin, and Incivek or Victrelis) I suspect people will be able to claim they are cured if they are virus free 6 months, or maybe a year, after completing treatment. Bottom Line: If someone has a Sustained Virological Response (SVR) they can be considered cured.
Avatar f tn I think they recomend you use protection during treatment and for a while after treatment. You should talk to a doctor, and/or call the pharmacutical company.
Avatar f tn Depends on which PI you select and how quickly you respond to trt. Following is the response guided trt for both from their websites. You should also have a biopsy to determine the status of your liver. Good luck in you selection and hope trt goes well for you.
Avatar f tn Hello all. I completed hep c treatment 6 weeks ago, its cleared for which I am deeply grateful.
