Sbjct: 2nd POST-Virus Replication & OTHER Things

Posted by DUDE
Fellas fellas fellas,,,,
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 »

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

Replicate....

Posted by Anonymous
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 »

New HIV virus - Is this the final answer?

Posted by TwinsDad, 2 Replies
My question is:
Why we Humans do not create a new virus strain that will merge with the original HIV virus and create a different mutation that will replicate until it reaches several mutations that are not bad for our organism or changes the... Read more »

Virus Replication Capacity

I was diagnosed HIV+ in 2/2005 and had three labs since. My CD4 are always around 300's, 23% and VL stays around 10,000. I just had my resistance test coming back and they also messured the Virus Replication Capacity (RC)> THe RC came back...

I agree that the statement is a bit optimistic. Although you have had 3 sets of labs, they are all within a relatively short time span. Further validation of the RC test is needed to determine whether a value of 56% confirms slower progression.... Read more »

Thanks for your post.Replication capacity is a newer technology from the folks at Virologic. The measure is way of attempting to assess how fit a patient's HIV is and how likely it is to cause pathology. A growing body of evidence suggests... Read more »

HIV Replication

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

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 »

HIV Found to Replicate Outside CD4 Cells; Discovery Gives Insight Into HIV-related Dementia

In an intriguing new study published last week in PLoS Pathogens , researchers discovered the first solid proof that HIV can replicate itself in cell types other than CD4 cells. The finding potentially opens an important window on our understanding... Read more »

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 »
