Charlie Sheen HIV Positive: Hard Three Letters To Absorb

Hello Guys, We have published most shocking news of this Tuesday. Famous Hollywood star “Charlie Sheen” is HIV positive, he told Matt Lauer during a much-touted exclusive NBC’s show interview.

Charlie Sheen Words “I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive. And, I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks, of sub-truths, and very harmful stories that are about threatening the health of so many others, which couldn’t be farther from the truth.” Sheen claimed that people who knew his HIV-positive status had extorted money from him to keep it a secret. Hollywood star Charlie Sheen said he would stop paying them now that his HIV status was public, adding: “I release myself from this prison today.”

Charlie Sheen Hiv PositiveSheen said that since learning that he was HIV positive, he had told all of his sexual partners about his status. He revealed that he had had unprotected sex with two people since then and that they were both under the care of his doctor.

Charlie does not have AIDS: Huizenga said. “AIDS is a condition where the HIV virus markedly suppresses the immune system and you are susceptible to rare, difficult cancers and infections. Charlie has none of those. He is healthy; he does not have AIDS.”

There are two main ways HIV is spread in the United States — by sex and by sharing needles, syringes or any of the equipment used to prepare and inject drugs. Anal sex carries the highest risk, followed by vaginal sex and having multiple partners.

He’s also been married multiple times and has children with ex-wives Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards. His ex-wives and an older child are aware of his illness, he said in the NBC interview.

A spokesman for Mueller told People magazine that she and her sons with Sheen, 6-year-old twins, do not have HIV.

Dr Robert Gallo Invented the HIV Blood Test and Now He Has a Vaccine That May Beat The HIV Virus.

Hello Bloggers! Today, hiv4LIFE have published a good news for all HIV/AIDS patients.

Who is Dr Robert Gallo?: Robert Charles Gallo (born March 23, 1937) is an American biomedical researcher and he is one of the famous scientists who discovered that the (human immunodeficiency virus) HIV virus causes AIDS in 1984 and also pioneered the blood test to detect it. Gallo is also a co-founder of biotechnology company Profectus BioSciences, Inc. and co-founder and scientific director of the Global Virus Network (GVN).

His Career: Dr. Robert Gallo states that his choice of profession was influenced by the early death of his sister from leukemia, a disease to which he initially dedicated much of his research.

One Good News From Dr. Robert Gallo After 31 Years: Now his team at the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Institute of Human Virology is beginning human trials this month on a potentially revolutionary HIV vaccine. He told Science magazine the vaccine has been in development for 15 years and have seen major breakthroughs on tests using animals, but, like much of the work on AIDS vaccines around the country, it has been a long process.

“The results in monkeys are interesting, but they’re not perfect,” Gallo said at an event at the institute’s Baltimore headquarters to announce the human trial. “If we keep just using monkeys, we’re never going anywhere. We need for humans to respond.” The initial phase the institute is entering this month is designed to make sure the drug is safe for patients and will take about a year. Later phases would test whether the vaccine performs as intended and include more patients than earlier stages. They also would take longer to help ensure there is enough data to support an FDA license. For now, in what the FDA calls a Phase I trial, the institute will enroll 60 people; initially, 20 will get the drug.

The FDA requires a series of increasingly involved human trials before deciding to approve a vaccine for HIV.

Phase I: Tests the safety of a vaccine candidate in up to 100 volunteers for up to two years.

Phase II: Continues testing the safety of a drug candidate and whether it provokes an immune response in several hundred volunteers at risk of acquiring HIV.

Phase IIb: Tests the vaccine’s effectiveness in a larger population of several thousand at-risk individuals. (The combined Phase II trials may last longer than two years.)

Phase III: Tests the vaccine’s effectiveness in at least 10,000 at-risk individuals and monitors for adverse reactions for up to four years.

HIV/AIDS Fact List: Myths V/s Actual Reality

Today, we have published blog on “HIV/AIDS Facts”. Most of people believed that HIV and AIDS could be transmitted by a mosquito bite, by sharing a drinking glass with someone with HIV/ AIDS, by being around someone with AIDS who was coughing, by hugging or kissing someone with AIDS, and so on. These all are some myths about HIV/AIDS.

1. HIV/AIDS is a Gay Disease

Anyone can be susceptible to HIV/AIDS, regardless of their sexual orientation. Everyone is at risk of getting HIV from blood-to-blood contact, sharing needles or unsafe sex. Worldwide, HIV is spread most often through heterosexual contact.

2. HIV/AIDS can be cured

To date, there is no cure for HIV or AIDS and there are no vaccines to prevent HIV infection.

3. I can get HIV/AIDS from Mosquitoes

HIV can only be transmitted through an exchange of body fluids. It cannot be spread through physical contact unless you have an open wound which comes into contact with the body fluids of an HIV-positive person.

4. AIDS is Genocide

In one study, as many as 30% of African-Americans and Latinos expressed the view that HIV was a government conspiracy to kill minorities. Instead, higher rates of infection in these populations may be due, in part, to a lower level of health care.

HIV and AIDS Myths

5. HIV/AIDS cannot transmitted during oral sex

Transmission of HIV occurs when there is an exchange of body fluids and this is possible during oral sex when there are open wounds. These include cuts, sores or abrasions in the mouth or gums, or infections in the throat or mouth that are inflammed. There may also be abrasions or sores on the penis or vagina. It is best to avoid oral sex if you have any cuts, sores or abrasions, or if you have a sexually transmitted infection. Otherwise, it is advisable to use condoms when engaging in oral sex.

Difference Between HIV/AIDS and EBOLA VIRUS

Today, hiv4LIFE have published one informative Infographic and Topic is “ Difference Between HIV/AIDS and Ebola Virus”.

Ebola virus is known as hemorrhagic fever. AIDS stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency syndrome which is deadly disease caused by human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Ebola Virus Symptoms of infections from 8-10 days. External and internal bleeding, vomiting, diarrhea, pain and headache. HIV/AIDS has a long time duration to stand. Ebola has shorter latency period and high visibility than HIV/AIDS. Ebola virus kills the victim by causing hemorrhaging. HIV/AIDS virus has long incubation period and low visibility symptoms HIV/AIDS virus kills the victim indirectly by lowering the immune system.

What is the main difference between HIV-1 and HIV-2?

Today hiv4LIFE team have described about HIV-1 and HIV-2 because we want to change your life better. Over the years, We have been many BOOKS written on the HIV subject, we have cut it to some we think are the best! and included books on the “conspiracy theories” we know you be interested in that why download from our website and change your HIV life in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.

HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus. There are mainly two types of HIV: HIV-1 and HIV-2. Both are different virus. HIV-1 is most common and pathogenic strain of HIV type but HIV-2 is mainly seen in West African  Countries. The first person in United State was found infected by HIV-2 in 1987.

The HIV-2 infection spread in the rest of the world is negligible and it progresses very slow than HIV-1.

HIV-2 often is less infectious early in the course of infection and, compared to HIV-1, the duration of increased infectiousness is shorter.

Both HIV types have same transmission process like transmitted through blood and sexual contact etc. HIV-2 has been found to be less pathogenic than HIV-1.

HIV Transmission

HIV-1 enters the immune system by attaching onto the CD4+ receptor found on the surface of certain white blood cells. HIV-2 has a harder time gaining such a foothold.

According to both structure, HIV2 contains certain protein molecules but that are not present in HIV-1.

Both HIV viruses are unreliable and highly susceptible to physical as well as chemical agents and therefore do not survive well outside the human body.
