The reason I ask is
I was in the military in 1984 there was a large number of service man discharged for being gay. I had always thought they used the fear of AIDS to out them. TO get them to confess to being gay. by either using the fear of aids as a tool by saying they found something in there blood in an aids test or by saying they had an AIDS test ? job discrimination now but back then acceptable behavior.
I just could never find out the info until that time line was pointed out. Would the military use HIV as a tool to out gays ? now they would not but thirty years ago I think they did.
just a scary thought on how things were then and how great full I am that they have changed
De nada. Adelante con su vida sin dudas.
thanks for the info.
I asked my ID doc about getting the vaccine. He said no, it's a live virus. I think I read somewhere that it's dependent upon CD4 count, but can't remember for sure.
I keep a supply of valtrex; I thought I had an oncoming out break on my face a few weeks ago. A little swollen and painful. No eruption yet. I started on the valtrex and the next day pain was nearly gone and swelling was gone. The next day, no symptoms.

The time line mentions april 23 1984 the development of a diagnostic blood test to identify HTLV-III
where did they first test it ? before releasing it for commercial use ?
is that info not available ? could that info be available ? just curious
March 2: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration licenses the first commercial blood test, Exit Disclaimer ELISA, to detect HIV. Blood banks begin screening the
U.S. blood supply
They had it for eleven months what did they do with it ?
in the movie the band played on they mention bringing a test to the blood bank and them contesting it cause it would cost to much?
my question is who did they test it on?

After being off Truvada for 6 weeks, my doc re-ran tests. GFR is now back into the normal range. So kidney's seem to have bounced back. She referred me to a HIV specialist in 6 weeks to further discuss PrEP and what to do.
The last thing I want to do is permanent damage to my kidneys. But given they bounced back in 6 weeks, would it be ok to restart Truvada and monitor kidneys? Last time I was on it for about 15 months.
I've seen a TAF form of "Truvada" that is supposed to be less toxic to the kidneys. Seems to work as PreP in monkeys. But I haven't see any timeline for human studies, or for that matter any guesses on FDA approval as PrEP. Anyone have insight?
Gracias por la paciencia! Aclaro que nunca tuve lastimaduras ni ninguna clase de enfermedad ni sexual ni otra en boca y lengua. Ahora si cumplo con mi palabra y no lo molestaré más. Gracias por los consejos y seguiré con mi vida disfrutando a mi mujer e hija. Un abrazo enorme para usted y todo su equipo!!! Millones de gracias! Usted tiene un amigo en Argentina. Sigo con mi vida...
It's been a week since the procedure and the post LP migraine headache is subsiding.
That's Great !
No se como puedo a ser mas clarp que Vd. no tenia un riesgo.
Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Recent test shows, low T-cells but Undetectable...Why?« Last post by bocker3 on Today at 04:30:38 PM »
I started to suspect my iron levels were low and starting taking supplements. Very quickly my energy levels increased and by the time of my next blood draws 4 months later my T-Cells had climbed back to over 800. So in my case it was probably an iron deficiency.
I seriously doubt that an iron deficiency played any role in your T-Cell levels.
One can't really make any deductions from a single (out of the ordinary) T-cell count. It could be so many things -- including a lab error so, I would not be worrying about those, rather I would be focused on the non-adherence. You are still UD, which is great -- but I do hope that you are now able to take your meds as prescribed!? Is your insurance back in force now?
