Gene That Prevents HIV From Replicating in Monkeys Could Play Role in New Treatment Options for Humans, Study Says

A gene called TRIM5-alpha that prevents HIV from replicating in rhesus monkeys could provide new treatment options for humans and could help prevent HIV-positive humans from developing AIDS, according to a study published in Jan. 11 issue of the... Read more »

University of Pittsburgh Team Finds "Achilles Heel" of Key HIV Replication Protein

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers report they have developed a way to track -- and perhaps block -- the activity of Nef, an HIV protein that is critical to HIV replication. According to researcher Thomas Smithgall, Ph.D., the... Read more »

Immune Control of HIV Replication

There's nothing like hearing the results of studies directly from those who actually conducted the research. In this summary, you'll hear Bruce Walker, M.D., discuss his plenary paper, "Immune Control of HIV Replication." To view a video of Dr.... Read more »

Viral Replication

I am confused about viral replication. The current antiretiroviral drugs prevent replication. However, when the meds are stopped is the virus still present in the infected cell and able to start replicating again?...
Renslow Sherer, M.D.

Response from Renslow Sherer, M.D.

University of Chicago Hospitals
Yes to both questions. The current antiretroviral drugs are 'static' drugs, i.e. they don't kill the virus, but they do prevent replication. Fortunately, the consequences of stopping replication are prolonged length of life and a... Read more »

Aspirin as disease preventative

Hi-what do you think about taking a low dose of aspirin each day as a general disease preventative for someone who is HIV+, on Atripla since 2008, in generally good health, but who has had Syphilis, HepB, anal warts, and who (I've read) would...

Thanks for your post.Aspirin has some very interesting properties and has been in and out of favor often.One recent study showed that it may have some beneficial effect in reducing Immune Activation in people with HIV, which is the major cause of... Read more »

HIV Replication

Hi Dr. Sherer:Does HIV still replicate or mutates even though a person is undetectable?Thank you....
Renslow Sherer, M.D.

Response from Renslow Sherer, M.D.

University of Chicago Hospitals
Yes. Even in the presence of a viral load below 50 copies/ml, there is evidence of ongoing replication in sequestered sites of HIV infection such as the central nervous system and the gonads. Different viral evolution patterns have been observed in... Read more »

Replication Capacity and HIV disease progression

I recently seroconverted two months ago. Shortly afterwards, the HIV clinic that I being supervised at did a resistance test. Gladly I was found to have no drug resistances, however my Viral Replication Capacity was found to be above average at...

The replication capacity assay has not been shown to be definitively predictive of disease progression. Your RC is in the normal range, and reflects a wild type virus, that is, one that does not have any resistance mutations. Your don't... Read more »

See,I told you HIV replicates a cell's DNA TO RNA

The below is plagerized from Gallant ( the guru!)
I know that the present antiretroviral medications do not actually kill the virus.
However, if the medications inhibit the virus from reproducing, doesn't the virus die

It's certainly time to move one. These HIV tests are very sensative. If you are infected with the HIV virus (or any virus for that matter)
the human body produces anti-bodies. The body reacts. THink of it like this. If you... Read more »

The HIV virus replicates 9log10 or 10log10(1000 000 000 or 1000 000 0000) each day. So the estimation of virus are 1000 000 000 New virus each day! so why shouldnt your body respond against so much virus? Get a grip virus replication starts nearly... Read more »
