PrEP failure happens

Eighty to ninety-six percent coverage is, for me, an insane Russian roulette! And I insist: there are other STDs, there is a risk of teenage pregnancy, unplanned, complicated and, we know, girls who get pregnant at school age, rarely go back to school! There are many risks and, as Guilherme Arantes says, take care of yourself, never to lose this wide laugh and this sympathy on your face

Undetectable viral load transmits the virus? No! And yes!

… and not. That is why I researched, and researched a lot, for years, before ratifying this, with all the reservations that I find in my intimate forum that, fortunately, are echoed in the publication that I translated and published in this post. Good reading and pay close attention to the percentages. From them my reserve and caution are born!

The goal of testing for viral load is simple: the fewer copies of HIV in the blood, the better. When starting treatment, viral load tests provide the baseline measurements against which subsequent tests are compared.

Each ten-fold drop in viral load is considered a fall in a trunk. For example, if the viral load drops from 50.000 copies / mL to 500 copies / mL, the patient is said to have a two-pronged drop in viral load

The life cycle of HIV. A ticking bomb

The life cycle of HIV. Understanding this life cycle, the life cycle of a virus, HIV, which threatens our own life, was and still is an important aspect of our fight against it, HIV, “human immunodeficiency virus”! By understanding these processes, we have managed to disturb these “moments” and save time. Time is an invaluable currency when fighting for life and that is what it is about. To buy time.

someone asked me if I had freaked out because I talked about having a long life while living with HIV! He already knows what it is like to have HIV! Longevity was the subject of a quick conversation and an audio statement that I still need to change my voice to depersonalize. This friend has his dreams there, and among them is to live to be one hundred and thirty years old.

It popped up in my head.

After finishing this paragraph I will get the code for embedding a great video by Pedro Calabrês.

Long Life and HIV

Long life and HIV
Claudio Souza

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Long life and HIV/AIDS???! Yes, it may seem strange to you. It is better to review concept. You see, it is important that you observe the world, as it is always moving and changing; you must challenge their prejudices, or surely they will confront you at some point!!! Once, back in the 90s, a person, in a […]

It is not wrong to say, in principle, the higher the CD4 count, the better and stronger the immune function.2

In a healthy adult, a normal CD4 T cell count can vary enormously (by population, age group, etc.), but it is typically about 500 to 1500 cells per cubic millimeter of blood (ml). When it falls below 200, however, there is an immune deficiency. So, it is established and the AIDS case is characterized. Once the AIDS diagnosis is established, it does not go back. I, with almost 1050 CD4 T cells, am still a “case of AIDS
