The great HIV/AIDS thread

It just explains that HIV testing is basically solid because of the strategies employed to not rely on one test or test session.

HIV testing with Elisa antibody testing is unreliable because of false positives after influenza vaccination, and after hepatitis B vaccination among other reasons. This is due to cross reaction.(references available upon request)

In addition the recent study published in JAMA by Rodriguez Sept 2006 shows that HIV viral load measurements with PCR is unreliable as a predictor of T cell count (which is the definition of pregression to AIDS). The use of quatitative HIV PCR has been categorically denounced by the inventor of the PCR test who says that "quantitive PCR" is an oxymoron.

The Monkey has nothing real to justify the way that he disrupts threads about this subject, and he insists on following such threads down into the [ENC]cesspool [/ENC]and [ENC]troll[/ENC]ing them, so he's not exactly the best source of information on this, and you have to wonder who his buddies are and how many of them are regulars at the Bohemian Grove.

Oh come awwwwwn. Are you still at it?

Give me a shred of proof that remotely suggests spurious shot JFK or whatever the fuck it is you believe. Give me a fucking shred!
I had to wonder how an untested and untestable theory became a "mainstream" medical theory. Then I found out that the believers in AIDS know how to create the appearance of a theory without the substance.

The biggest problem in the cure for AIDS is that current medical approaches do not work because even if they manage to clean out most of the infection through bone marrow transplants, cellular flushes etc, there is still latent HIV. Latent HIV is inactive virus planted deep in the DNA of human cells and is safe from antiretroviral therapy.

However, a totally new approach to HIV treatment makes use of an epilepsy drug { valproic acid } that flushes HIV out of its most remote hiding places in the body. Most efforts focused on turning the latent infection into active infection but this only caused the virus to replicate faster. Now the focus is on agents that target different HIV replicative enzymes like Integrase or RNase.

David Margolis from the University of Maryland School of Medicine has found that valproic acid can flush out HIV from resting CD4 cells. He combines HIV drug, Fuseon with valproic acid, "The researchers found that the amount of replication-competent HIV hidden in resting CD4 cells declined by 68%-84%" Research is still ongoing.

Though there is no current cure this shows potential for future studies.

As for the great HIV does not cause AIDS debate: here is all the old arguments { and some new ones } in a simple and convenient place.
