Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Clinical trials are administered in various ways. They can be using medication, intravenously, transfusion, stem cell replacemen etc....There is no cost incurred to the patient and a reimbursement for the day is usually allotted. All expenses are usually covered by the administrating practice. Patients must meet the qualifications of the clinical trial. At-risk patients will not qualify for these trials. The patients' health is number one in these trials and is monitored very closely. ❤️

I definitely would participate. Research needs volunteers. It's the only way to get new treatments approved.

Clinical Trials. Would Clinical Trials Be Able To Get My Viral Load To Non Detectable?

Clinical Trials. Would Clinical Trials Be Able To Get My Viral Load To Non Detectable?

My doctor is a well-respected researcher of infectious diseases. She said that because I've been on medication for over 30 years that she didn't think my viral load would ever be non detectable given the enormity of medications I have been given. Are there any clinical trials going on for people on my situation. My viral load is 124.

I would be hesitant with that comment ..I am afraid my dear friend that if you went off meds that the HIV would kick in ..maybe not the first three days but after a week of no meds bet your detectable… read more

There Is A New Injectable Currently Being Tested In Trials. Would You Change Your Current Regiment To This Treatment, If Approved?

There Is A New Injectable Currently Being Tested In Trials. Would You Change Your Current Regiment To This Treatment, If Approved?

An injectable two-drug regimen of cabotegravir and rilpivirine administered every 2 months is noninferior to the same injection received monthly, according to results from the phase 3 ATLAS-2M trial. The phase 3 ATLAS study previously demonstrated that receiving injections of the investigational regimen every 4 weeks is noninferior to a daily three-drug oral regimen for the treatment of HIV and is overwhelmingly preferred by patients.

My Dr talked to me about it. I'm happy with my pill. An injection for me would be a NO!

Once Approved By The FDA And Qualified In Clinical Trials, Would You Have Your Physician Give You The Covid-19 Vaccine?

Once Approved By The FDA And Qualified In Clinical Trials, Would You Have Your Physician Give You The Covid-19 Vaccine?

With different pharmaceutical companies, AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna all creating a covid-19 vaccine in the coming months, which one would you decide to take or would you at all? 🤔

A myHIVteam Member said:

@A myHIVteam Member You are very correct. As long as these vaccines give a great results then each year we will have to get another vaccine just like we do yearly for the flu shot. The Covid… read more

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

Hi. Has Anyone Switched From Atripla To Genvoya?

I've been on Atripla 11 yrs with good success & little side effects, but concerned it may be hard on my bones, teeth and kidneys. Heard and read that Genvoya may be a better alternative and not as harsh on my body (especially as I get older . . . 61 now) Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has made that switch and what your experience has been like.

Covid-19 Vaccine + HIV

Covid-19 Vaccine + HIV

Has anyone had the opportunity to speak to their doctor, specialist, etc about taking the Covid-19 vaccine or not taking it? Im usually a little reluctant to take the first round of anything new as it is certainly a trial by fire in some cases. However, I'm not completley against taking the vaccine.

I realize it will probably be a few more months before the opportunity comes to take the vaccine but I will talk to my doctor about it and the potential risks.
