Hiv treatment prediction software developed
« on: August 11, 2008, 05:29:06 PM »
European researchers have developed a predictive software system for HIV that could help extend the lives of victims of the disease.

A cure for the virus that causes AIDS may still be beyond our grasp, but European researchers have developed a predictive software system for HIV that could help extend the lives of victims of the killer disease. Despite significant progress in the management of the HIV virus that causes AIDS, today’s best treatments do not totally eradicate the virus. The virus’ ability to develop resistance to current antiretroviral therapy means the therapy needs to be changed if it is to continue to be effective. By focusing on the genotype of the virus information which is inexpensive and easily available and combining this with clinical information about the patient, the European researchers have developed new mathematical prediction models.

The key achievement was to combine data from HIV databases in Italy, Sweden and Germany. All of the information is now located in what the EU researchers claim as the world’s biggest database of AIDS resistance-related information with more than 18 000 patients, 64 000 therapies and 240 000 viral mode measurements. Combining the world’s largest databases and newly created software has given the project the ability to predict how the HIV virus will react in a certain person given a certain combination of drugs. r, but a physical merger, too. With all this data, medical researchers and doctors can now predict what would happen if a patient with a certain type of virus and certain viral load is given a certain combination of antiretroviral therapy.

figures that europe with sane 1st world modern health care systems can put together this amazing database, where all people are TREATED with dignity in health care system and all computerized
the usa is at the mercy of greedy insurance company execs and policy cancels and denials and all the nightmares and madness that is the evil broken health insurance industry today in usa
is there any hope that O B A M A
will be able to shift the system to CARE for humans
not corp profits?
