• lower viral
  • They suggest that women have progression of HIV disease at lower viral levels than men. (thebody.com)
  • 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)
  • However, women whose CD4+ cell counts were 200-500 had a 40% lower viral level compared to men with the same CD4+ cell count. (thebody.com)
  • Thats a first for me, as a matter of fact a lower viral load to start treatment with can have better odds of clearing Hep-C....... What kind of doctor is telling you this? (medhelp.org)
  • patients
  • Tracking viral load is used to monitor therapy during chronic viral infections, and in immunocompromised patients such as those recovering from bone marrow or solid organ transplantation. (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)
  • 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)
  • Acute scrub typhus appears to improve viral loads in patients with HIV. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • Within the acute phase, two stages have been identified: a viral stage during the first five to seven days, during which viremia occurs, followed by a convalescent stage lasting approximately ten days, during which symptoms improve and the virus cannot be detected in the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • Appropriate dosing of Simeprevir is dependent upon the patient's liver function, kidney function, viral load, and HCV genotype. (wikipedia.org)
  • protein
  • The L RNA encodes the L protein, which functions as the viral transcriptase/replicase. (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)
  • Simeprevir is a NS3/4A protease inhibitor, thus preventing viral maturation through inhibition of protein synthesis. (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)
  • time
  • In other words, women with half the viral load as men had a similar time to AIDS. (thebody.com)
  • 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)
  • AIDS
  • In addition, the differences in viral levels among men and women suggest that women appear to progress to AIDS with about half the viral load as men. (thebody.com)
  • virus
  • 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)
  • such as younger kittens, old cats, immunosuppression due to viral-FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus) and/or FeLV Feline leukemia virus and stress, including the stress of separation and adoption. (wikipedia.org)
  • apparently
  • Dr just called to tell me that she had misinformed me yesterday about my viral load (which she had insisted hadn't been run) but apparently the RNA was run. (medhelp.org)
  • change
  • Yes your viral load can change by the day, not sure what she is talking about it being to low to treat. (medhelp.org)
  • Viral loads can change on their own without obvious reason and are not significant to whether or not to treat. (medhelp.org)
  • therapy
  • A Federal Guidelines Panel, which provides guidance on the use of anti-HIV therapy in adults, recently held a meeting to review new information on gender differences in viral load. (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)
  • A reduction in the viral load is an indication that the therapy against HIV is effective. (reference.com)
