fish oils, EPA DHA Immune Modulating Diet

this is direct evidence that foods can have an effect on the immune system...

this is direct science evidence of food can have an effect on the immune system...

this is very technical

Immune Modulating Diet found fish oil fatty acids EPA DHA

I do not think that this would be a cure or solution but might slow by some % how fast the virus damages the immune system  (hopefully the small molecule they find will be much more powerful as a drug)

perhaps if it proved somewhat effective it would extend the life of a HAART by a few months or more or allow someone to wait a few months longer during a treatment interuption..  this is no substitution for HAART
definately stay on haart

anyway i did a search on
anti-ctla diet                     
http://www.google.com/search?q=anti-ctla+diet&hl=en&start=10&sa=N

and found this amazing article

http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:KEIclz5ZucMJ:https://txspace.tamu.edu/bitstream/1969.1/1535/1/etd-tamu-2004C-NUTR-Ly.pdf+anti-ctla+diet&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=11&gl=us

on google scholar and amazingly found this article

Consumption of fish oils (FO) is beneficial to a variety of inflammatory disorders due, in part, to the alteration of membrane composition of T-lymphocytes and other immune cells. We previously observed that
down-regulation of proliferation and cytokine synthesis by CD4 +T-cells in mice fed diets
rich in n-3 PUFA was dependent on the involvement of CD28, a co-stimulatory molecule
necessary for T-cell activation.

IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE DIETARY N-3 POLYUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS
DIFFERENTIALLY MODULATE COSTIMULATORY REGULATION OF
MURINE CD4+ T-CELL FUNCTION

it seems counter intuitive that an IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE  diet might help but unless the hiv person was very ill and very low t cells say less than 200 i theorize that slowing the system a bit may help

I have been searching and thinking about is there any diets or substances that can effect pd-1.  And is there any substances or molecules that can effect pd-1 on outside of cd8 cell.  Science is searching for what in body of typical progressors upregulates the pd-1 and they are looking for small molecules that can go inside the cd8 cell and down regulate the pd-1 and i thought, well perhaps there is a diet or food or something and since pd-1 is so new i thought i would search for a related receptor CTLA which is very close to pd-1 in function, it down regulates the immune system.    so my theory or idea was anything that would work on CTLA might also have an effect on pd-1

I swear I have had the exact same thoughts  for days now.

Downright spooky.
