• replication
  • HIV is a retrovirus, an RNA virus that enters a host cell and uses the host DNA replication machinery and the enzyme reverse transcriptase to produce DNA from the viral RNA genome. (wikipedia.org)
  • These sequences appear to form panhandle structures which seem likely to play a role in replication and encapsidation facilitated by binding with the viral nucleocapsid (N) protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistance
  • High level and sustained increases in viral load are frequently related to the development of drug resistance and/or viral mutations, and often dictate changes in ART. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of the complexity of selecting and following a regimen, the potential for side effects, and the importance of taking medications regularly to prevent viral resistance, such organizations emphasize the importance of involving patients in therapy choices and recommend analyzing the risks and the potential benefits. (wikipedia.org)
  • test

  • I had my first viral load test which came back 190000/ml that seems awfully high! (thebody.com)
  • in my 1st ever viral load test the number came up 525000. (thebody.com)
  • There are many different molecular based test methods for quantifying the viral load using NATs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Laboratory monitoring schedule for patients using ART: Viral load monitoring for HIV complements the CD4 count, which is another sort of test associated with monitoring HIV. (wikipedia.org)
  • The results of a viral load test help determine when a CD4 count is indicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • level
  • It is also about the average level for HCV viral load as well. (thebody.com)
  • optimal therapy, many people have to live with a viral load far above the level of detection at the risk of developing drug resistant virus because it's the best they could get. (thebody.com)
  • count
  • The best predictive value was obtained when viral load was combined with CD4 cell count. (thebody.com)
  • Viral load was consistently lower in women than men even after adjustments for CD4+ cell count differences were made. (thebody.com)
  • I assume that viral load count is for the HCV . (thebody.com)
  • Can you explain how I can have a tcell count so good and a viral load so bad? (thebody.com)
  • Even if confirmed, with a high CD4 cell count, I don't think that you need to start on medications immediately (so long as you're asymptomatic), but rather, a high viral load indicates the need to continue to get close periodic lab and clinical monitoring. (thebody.com)
  • Additional extender probes also bind to the target nucleic acid and to numerous reporter molecules which are used to increase the signal intensity, which is converted to a viral count. (wikipedia.org)
  • protein
  • The L RNA encodes the L protein, which functions as the viral transcriptase/replicase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Simeprevir is a NS3/4A protease inhibitor, thus preventing viral maturation through inhibition of protein synthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • While cases of warts have been described since the time of ancient Greece, their viral nature was not discovered until 1907. (wikipedia.org)
  • While cases of warts have been described since the time of ancient Greece, their viral cause was not known until 1907. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • HBV Viral load log value - 3.17 the problem is apart from the abdominal discomfort i dont have any other symptoms showing like nausea or yellowish of the skin/eye. (medhelp.org)
  • MVD is a viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF), and the clinical symptoms are indistinguishable from Ebola virus disease (EVD). (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • The lowest quartile was separated into those patients with viral loads less than the limit of detection and those who had detectable virus. (thebody.com)
  • These data were complemented by data presented by Neil Graham of The Johns Hopkins University, who reported on viral cultures taken from patients enrolled in the Baltimore MACS cohort and the ALIVE study of HIV-infected IV drug users in Baltimore. (thebody.com)
  • Acute scrub typhus appears to improve viral loads in patients with HIV. (wikipedia.org)
  • tests
  • In a recent report in Nature: Medicine [1996;2:625- Saag and colleagues provide a review of the use of viral load tests in the management of HIV-infected individuals (see page 13, Snapshots of the Literature). (thebody.com)
  • They suggest that theuse of the viral load tests, particularly when used as a starting point for beginning anti-HIV therapy, may need to be adjusted for gender to account for this difference. (thebody.com)
  • Various viral load tests might be used. (wikipedia.org)
  • ALIVE
  • This statement was supported by a number of scientific presentations including John Mellors' MACS data and Neil Graham's data on viral load in the Baltimore MACS and ALIVE cohorts described below. (thebody.com)
  • Like the ALIVE study, differences in viral load emerged. (thebody.com)
  • below
  • Below is a summary of Viral Load coverage and information on Metal Underground.com. (metalunderground.com)
  • Dr. Paul Bellman, a New York clinician with extensive experience treating HIV, states, "I would feel a lot more secure if Sean's viral load went below 20. (thebody.com)
  • Successful combination ART should give a fall in viral load of 1.5 to 2 logs (30-100 fold) within six weeks, with the viral load falling below the limit of detection within four to six months. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • This difference persisted after accounting for other factors that the researchers felt could possibly influence the lower viral levels seen in women, such as race, current and previous use of anti-HIV therapy and use of street drugs. (thebody.com)
