Gardasil Vaccine Insurance Issues?

The FDA recently expanded/approved guidelines for the HPV vaccine to include men aged 9 to 45.

My ID doctor said absolutely I should get the vaccine.

Asking for thoughts about changing my Primary care doctor fromy an internist to my ID doctor

My primary doctor now is an internist who doesn't keep up with the latest info on HIV and it's treatments and complications. Thinking of changing to my Infectious Disease doctor. I've been with him 15 years but he's only in his office 2 1/2 days a week because he also runs the Infectious Disease Department at the local hospital and is on may boards. Any thoughts?

Functional Cure Achieved in Monkey

A ‘functional cure’ of HIV has been achieved in one monkey given gene therapy that induced it to make two broadly neutralising antibodies against the virus.

Researcher José Martinez-Navio of the University of Miami told the HIV Research for Prevention conference (HIVR4P 2018) that the monkey received no antiretroviral therapy (ART) at any time other than two therapeutic vaccinations containing the genes that induce antibodies, and has remained with an undetectable viral load… read more
