  • When used consistently, antiretroviral medication can keep HIV controlled at very low levels in the body (known as viral suppression), allowing people with HIV to live longer, healthier lives and reducing the likelihood they will transmit HIV to others. (
  • Among people who have achieved viral suppression, HIV is detectable only at very low levels in the blood or is undetectable with standard tests. (

  • Half of Americans with HIV now have the virus under control," said Jonathan Mermin, M.D., M.P.H., director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. (
  • Reducing the number of undiagnosed HIV infections and getting more people into care present the greatest opportunities to improve viral suppression in America. (
  • Once inside the cell, the virus creates a long strand of a large viral protein that must be cut at specific points to release individual proteins that serve various functions in building new virus particles. (
  • Thus, the aim of this study was to analyze a cluster of 3 case-patients for whom epidemiologic data were available and compare complete viral genome sequences to assess person-to-person transmission or coexposure to the same rodent population. (
  • Among the 30 medicines the Chinese National Health Commission selected to fight the virus was a Cuban anti-viral drug Interferon Alpha 2b. (
  • Interferons are 'signalling' proteins produced and released by cells in response to infections which alert nearby cells to heighten their anti-viral defences. (
  • According to Dr. Chisari, Professor, Department of Molecular and Experimental Medicine, and Director, General Clinical Research Center, "The immune system has evolved a defense mechanism that allows it to cure certain viral infections by instructing the infected cells to stop producing virus and to accelerate viral elimination. (
  • This significant decrease in viral load reduces the number of cells that must be killed, thereby preserving the function of the organ while the virus is removed. (
  • The cell is instructed, via viral DNA, to stop making its normal cellular parts and instead make more viruses by transcription and replication. (
  • And this is certainly a great viral marketing campaign, but it is not "literally" viral marketing as these are not viruses in the billboard. (
  • People are already confused about the differences between viral and bacterial ailments, to the point where they will demand antibiotics for problems that likely have a viral cause, like upper respiratory infections. (
  • Much reporting of early analysis repeated that the strain contained genes from five different flu viruses: North American swine influenza, North American avian influenza, human influenza, and two swine influenza viruses typically found in Asia and Europe. (

  • Turns out that flu sufferers can emit small virus particles into the air at greater distances than previously thought -- at a whopping six feet, or nearly two meters. (
  • Of this group, 43 percent released particles containing the virus into the air. (
  • It turned out that the fine airborne particles -- released by normal breathing -- contained nearly nine times more virus than larger droplet particles released when a person coughs and sneezes. (

(
  • The research team that worked on this report also believed that it was "derived from several viruses circulating in swine," and that the initial transmission to humans occurred several months before recognition of the outbreak. (
  • The new virus has been compared to SARS, an unusual pneumonia that first surfaced in China in late 2002 and erupted into a deadly international outbreak in early 2003. (
  • The new virus is distinct from SARS, but health officials worry it has potential to flare into a SARS-like international outbreak. (

  • For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. (
  • Further analysis showed that several of the proteins of the virus are most similar to strains that caused mild symptoms in humans, leading virologist Wendy Barclay to suggest that the virus was unlikely to cause severe symptoms for most people. (
  • The US CDC recommended that people should wait at least a day after their fever subsides (usually 3-4 days after the onset of symptoms) before resuming normal activities, but it has been found that they can continue to shed virus for several days after that. (
  • People with colds are contagious during the first two to four days of the onset of symptoms. (
  • Within one to three days, the infected person begins to show cold symptoms. (
  • Most people begin to feel better four to five days after their cold symptoms become noticeable. (

  • If the measles virus enters a baby's brain, it can remain there for years, leading to a condition called subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE). (
  • Scientists at the University of Liverpool have demonstrated that a drug for treating hepatitis B virus (HBV) could be mass-produced for only £24 ($36) per person per year, versus the current UK NHS price of £4,600, and the US price of over $15,000. (
  • There is also a risk of infected mothers passing on the Hepatitis B virus to their children. (
  • Each year approximately 300,000 people will become infected with the Hepatitis B virus. (
  • In this study, the authors demonstrate that the DNA of the Hepatitis B virus disappears from the liver and the blood of acutely infected animals long before the onset of disease and the peak of T cell infiltration, suggesting that nondestructive antiviral mechanisms, triggered by inflammatory cytokines secreted by the first wave of inflammatory cells that enter the liver, contribute to clearance of the virus.
