EUA: vacina experimental contra HIV será testada em humanos
La lotta contro l'HIV ha segnato un altro capitolo promettente. Con l'avvio della sperimentazione del vaccino HIV VIR-1388 negli USA e in Sudafrica, siamo un passo più vicini a un mondo in cui l'HIV potrebbe diventare una minaccia gestibile o addirittura eliminata.

They want to slash 1/5 of its budget, which will affect Ryan White, among many other programs. As they are forcing a government shut down, more than just government employees are going to be affected, especially if Democrats cave to some of the Republican demands. https://www.poz.com/article/move-slash-cdc-budget-house-republicans-target-major-hiv-program-trump-launched

✡️ Today's Jew of the Day is Jonathan Mann!
Dr Jonathan Mann was a public health physician and human rights advocate.
After graduating from Harvard School of Public Health he served the :united_states: Centers for Disease Control and led AIDS research in Zaire. From 1986, as founding head of WHO's Global Programme on AIDS he became an adamant champion of human rights, recognising that respect for vulnerable communities is central to health and that coercive disease control measures can be counterproductive and unjustifiable. But his disruptive style led to conflict with WHO management and he returned to Harvard, becoming Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Professor of Health and Human Rights in 1993.
He continued work on links between health and human rights until he died alongside his second wife, vaccinologist Mary-Lou Clements Mann, in the 1998 Swissair flight 111 crash while en route to Geneva to meet the new head of WHO.

The Danger of ‘Invisible’ #Biolabs Across the U.S.
Opinion by Dan Greene, August 31, 2023
"Recently, many #California residents were disturbed to learn that a small, privately-operated bio lab in the #CentralValley town of #Reedley was shut down by Fresno County Department of Public Health officials after they found that it had been improperly managing almost 1,000 laboratory mice and samples of infectious diseases including #COVID19, #rubella, #malaria, #dengue, #chlamydia, #hepatitis, and #HIV. The lab was registered to a company called #PrestigeBiotech that sold a variety of medical testing kits, including for pregnancy and COVID-19, and it was likely storing disease samples for the purpose of developing and validating its testing kits. Government authorities are still investigating the company’s history, but it appears to have previously operated a lab in Fresno under the name Universal MediTech, where city officials flagged it for investigation regarding improperly stored chemicals.
"From what is publicly known, the Reedley lab should likely have followed proper biosafety practices to minimize the risks of an #outbreak, and it apparently failed to do so. It could have caused illness, disruption, or even death among local communities and beyond depending on the circumstances of an outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (#CDC) maintains a system of four 'Biosafety Level' standards that are used worldwide for work with dangerous pathogens. Based on the pathogens that were being used at the Reedley lab, it probably should have followed Biosafety Level 3, which involves controlling the airflow inside the lab as well as a host of other practices, equipment, and facility design requirements.
"Yet, astonishingly, the U.S. government seems to not have even known that the Reedley lab existed until it was discovered by chance by Jesalyn Harper, an observant local city code enforcement officer—the only such officer working full-time in the entire city. Once discovered, the Fresno County and California Departments of Public Health found it to be in violation of local and state codes, including those for registering clinical labs and managing medical waste. Based on our reading of available information, it was likely also in violation of federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations for protecting workers from bloodborne pathogens. But these codes require proactive reporting, and the lab simply never reported any issues to regulators. In slightly different circumstances, it would likely have continued to operate unnoticed for a long time."
Analsex an sich ist kein Infektionsrisiko. Sex mit mehreren Menschen ist an sich kein Infektionsrisiko. Sex mit HIV-Positiven ist an sich kein Infektionsrisiko.
Aber ungeschützter Sex ist ein Infektionsrisiko.
Eine feste Beziehung an sich bietet keinen sicheren Infektionsschutz.
Es ist ernüchternd, dass Bundesärztekammer und Paul-Ehrlich-Institut es auch nach Jahren der Kritik nicht hinbekommen, die Fragebögen zur Blutspende so zu formulieren, dass dabei reales Schutzverhalten abgefragt wird, statt Risikomythen zu verstärken.
Oooh! Potential cure for HIV!
Blood cancer drug could replace lifelong HIV medication
By Neve Brissenden
An existing cancer drug could be the key to curing HIV for the almost 40 million people living with the disease.
Venetoclax has been helping people with blood cancer since 2015 and a new trial has found it effective at targeting hibernating infected HIV cells.
The hidden cells cause the virus to stay in the body permanently and currently cannot be treated, meaning those diagnosed with HIV need life-long antiviral treatment.
Australian research houses the Doherty Institute and the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research jointly conducted a study which found venetoclax delayed the virus from rebounding by two weeks.
The drug "potently reduced" the amount of intact viral DNA in cells, Doherty Institute researcher Youry Kim said.
“This indicates that venetoclax is selectively killing the infected cells, which rely on key proteins to survive, (it) has the ability to antagonise one of the key survival proteins,” she said.
A clinical trial of the drug is set to start at the end of the year in Denmark and in Australia in 2024.
Joint corresponding author Sharon Lewin said the trial was a significant next step.
"It's exciting to see venetoclax, which has already helped thousands of blood cancer patients, now being repurposed as a treatment that could also help change the lives of people living with HIV and put an end to the requirement for life-long medication," she said.
#HIV und #AIDS existieren, ebenso wie Tweets, in denen der radikale Querdenker Homburg das Gegenteil behaupten wollte. Er leugnete dann beides.

#lymphopenia as a major immunological abnormality that occurs in the majority (72%) of severe #COVID19 patients, can cause general immunosuppression facilitating viral persistence. Lymphopenia can be inherited or acquired. Acquired lymphopenia can be due to different biological conditions and disorders, however it is mainly related to #HIV and other viral infections.
#AIDS correlation with #SarsCoV2 N genotypes…
I hope people listen.

TWiV Clinical Update for May 25, 2023 (listening and taking notes while cleaning out a closet LOL): https://www.microbe.tv/twiv/twiv-1010/
CDC report for #HIV surveillance: There were 5k more HIV diagnoses in the US in 2021 than 2020, but down from 2016. 20% are in women, 2/3 MSM, mostly in the South. It’s still a #pandemic! People are still getting HIV from unprotected sex, even if it was once or twice. An HIV vaccine is not forthcoming and the antivirals can make you feel very sick.
This was what it was like working with gay men in the early 1980’s. I was working at Disneyland. These gay men, my friends, got sick, had to stop working and died.
Young men. Men at the height of their theater lifecycle, artists. we worried for Elton John. (Elton John is a living miracle.) You got AIDS, #HIV back then, you died. and so many men did catch it.
watch HBO’s, “And the band played on.” (super young Richard Gere playing a real NYC dance choreographer, who died at the height of his career.) and “Philadelphia,” with Tom Hanks and a young, (hot,) Denzel Washington.
Jenny, Forrest Gump’s pretty blonde wife, from the film “Forrest Gump,” died of AIDS. You didn’t know that? That’s because that is how it was. No one spoke about it.
People with blood disorders, people who got transfusions for whatever reason, gay men, nurses, anyone who worked around human blood, and anyone who reused needles for illegal drugs.
it was awful. it was like covid but only for a certain segment of our friends, and it killed them, nearly 100% of the time within five years. like a bad cancer, only a germ spread by intimate contact.
It was like that.
That’s why those of us who saw it celebrate PRIDE.
Because unlike Covid, the Republicans (Ronald Reagan,) did nothing, called it the “gay plague.”
So, a lot of really smart people got together world wide and worked really hard to save as many as they could.
It was a movement in California. A swelling of “fuck this,” and everyone running around with condoms waving them around like candy thrown at kids during parades.
and actual parades. PRIDE parades.
That is what the fascists in Florida and other places are fighting against.
They are saying, “not only do we refuse to take care of you, no one else can either. Not even other LGBTQIA people.”
That is fascism, my friends.
Fascists are the group that complains (screams they are being attacked,) when another group defend itself.
They, fascists, don’t want people they don’t like to be able to SELF DEFEND.
*****Every organism on earth has the right to self defense. Even single cell creatures fight back. ****
Be proud to fight anti-gay fascists, wherever you see them.
