Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

Please provide hyperlinks with full URLs or full citations of published works not available via the Internet. Additionally, all forums members must post information which are true and correct to their knowledge.

Wow, the HIV disguises itself as E.coli, hmm what do we do now!  I guess the answer is in plain sight.  Gather all the research on E.coli and figure it out, damnit!  lol ;)

That would be a good start.  I do try to keep a perspective on these things (cure research), since hopes are often dashed.  But it does seem like every few weeks there's some advancement or credible hypotheses/potential breakthrough.  I do so very much hope there's a critical mass brewing and then something really big happens!  I'm just a year into diagnoses, though my numbers were bad at diagnosis (cd4 9; VL 111,000), so still sort of a newbie, not burnt out on disappointment yet.

In the meantime, I'll keep Atripla'n down the road.

This HIV appears to be a rather versatile character actor with an extensive repertoire playing in human body stages around the world.

Look.  You change one letter and now it's disguised as E.boli cousin to Ebola.  Damn this thing is tricky!
