    Having HIV almost doubles the risk of liver fibrosis, according to European research published in the online edition of the Journal of Infectious Diseases. Investigators in Denmark and the Netherlands compared rates of liver fibrosis between people living with HIV and people without HIV. Importantly, none of the participants had hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV). All were aged between 50 and 70 years and liver fibrosis was present in 12% of people with HIV and 7% of HIV-negative comparison group. Risk factors for fibrosis among people with HIV included increasing age, higher body mass index (BMI),...
  • In Wake Of His Death, Media Smears Rush Limbaugh For ‘AIDS Update’ He Repeatedly Apologized For

    It seems that rather than attempt to hold Rush Limbaugh eternally accountable for his sins, this one in particular, what should matter most is the context and his apology.One of the remarkable truths about those who hold a visceral hatred of Rush Limbaugh is the high likelihood they have never listened to his show or read any of his books. They just know they strongly dislike Limbaugh for a good reason, one they can usually validate with a quick search of what others have said about him along with a quote or two for evidence. The most tangible demonstration of...
  • How the KGB Convinced the World That AIDS Was a Pentagon Invention

    01/30/2021 9:41:20 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 19 replies
    The covert disinformation campaign was secretly codenamed ‘Operation INFEKTION’. In July 1983, an Indian newspaper in New Delhi published an article alleging “U.S. experiments” were the likely cause of a new mysterious disease dubbed ‘AIDS’. Five years later, CBS anchor Dan Rather announced to millions of concerned Americans allegations that their own military might have been behind the deadly virus. On that very day, a few KGB operatives in the secret agency’s Lubyanka headquarters in Moscow likely praised each other for a job well done. The story about U.S. military experiments that might have produced AIDS caught up slowly but...

    New York Post ^ | January 30 | Isabel Vincent
    AIDS likely made the leap from chimpanzees to humans because of a starving World War I soldier who was forced to hunt the animals for food, according to a new book. The unknown “Patient Zero” was part of an invasion force of 1,600 Belgian and French troops who, along with 4,000 African aides, had traveled from Leopoldville in the Belgian Congo to a remote outpost in Cameroon, says Canadian microbiologist Jacques Pepin, who once worked as a bush doctor in central Africa in the 1980s. Pepin, a professor in the Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases at Universite de Sherbrooke...

    In 2003, terrorism was a more immediate national danger than infectious diseases. Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had just redirected $117 million from infectious diseases to fund a new anthrax vaccine effort in response to the anthrax attacks that happened a week after 9/11. The millions were just a small part of the $1.8 billion Fauci had poured into defense from bioterrorist attacks over the preceding two years. More than half of those funds were devoted to anthrax and smallpox alone. In 2004, Fauci launched the $5.6 billion “Project Bioshield,” the National Institutes of...

  • Biden/Harris Support Legalizing Exposing Others to HIV

    Decriminalize HIV exposure and transmission laws. In 2018, 26 states in America had HIV exposure criminal laws. These laws perpetuate discrimination and stigma towards people with HIV/AIDS, and there is simply no “scientific basis” for them. As President, Biden will support legislation like the REPEAL HIV Discrimination Act, which promotes best practice recommendations for states.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is funding a study around blood donations by gay or bisexual men. ABC News reported on Tuesday that the study, Assessing Donor Variability and New Concepts in Eligibility (Advance), is underway, and aims evaluate whether donor deferral criteria can be based on individual risks assessment. The study aims to present data to the FDA by late 2021. The study could lead to the complete removal of restrictions around donations by gay or bisexual men, according to the news outlet. “The FDA remains committed to considering alternatives to time-based deferral by generating the scientific evidence...

    The foreign-headquartered company that recently purchased the leading U.S. electronic voting firm is boasting that it was highlighted in a report on how technology is making the election process more efficient, secure, transparent, accessible and reliable. The report, WND has learned, was authored by a firm with links to billionaire activist George Soros. The information comes after WND reported two weeks ago that SCYTL recently acquired the software division of a non-profit election organization tied to Soros’ Open Society Institute. Yesterday, WND reported SCYTL announced its technology will be deployed at more U.S. jurisdictions ahead of the 2014 midterm elections....

    Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many states are in varying states of opening. As states open, we should not forget about our sexual health. COVID-19 has impacted American sexuality, although the impact may be different depending on a person’s age, relationship status, or sexual preferences, etc. Due to the stressors of COVID- 19, people may find themselves engaging in behavior that they did not before the pandemic. For example, some teenagers may turn to sex to cope with the coronavirus pandemic. Unprotected sex could lead to serious health consequences, such as contracting HIV. There are, however, medications on the market that...
  • Timothy Ray Brown, First Patient Cured of H.I.V., Dies at 54. Known initially as the “Berlin Patient,” he underwent an experimental stem cell transplant 13 years ago that rid his body of the virus. He died of leukemia.

    Timothy Ray Brown, the first person to be cured of H.I.V., through an experimental bone marrow transplant that offered hope though not a realistic treatment for most people with the virus, died on Tuesday at his home in Palm Springs, Calif. He was 54. His partner, Tim Hoeffgen, said the cause was unrelated recurring leukemia. Mr. Brown had remained free of H.I.V., the virus that can lead to AIDS. “Timothy would like to be remembered as a man who gave hope to people around the world that a cure for H.I.V. is possible,” Mr. Hoeffgen said in an email. Mr....

    At a hearing of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Shkreli repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which says no person shall be compelled in any criminal case "to be a witness against himself." Wearing a sport jacket and collared shirt rather than his usual T-shirt, he responded to questions by laughing, twirling a pencil and yawning. Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, asked Shkreli what he would tell a single, pregnant woman with AIDS who needed Daraprim to survive, and whether he thought he had done anything wrong. Shkreli declined to answer....
  • Two different cases of PrEP failure despite high adherence underline that such events are rare, but should not be ignored

    AIDS Map ^ | 4 September 2020 | Gus Cairns
    Two reports of HIV infection occurring despite apparent adequate adherence to PrEP, confirmed by drug level testing, are the first reliably documented cases to be published in peer-reviewed journals since 2018. The most recent case was reported by Dr Matthew Spinelli in Clinical Infectious Diseases. It concerns a 44-year-old gay man in Texas and appears not to be due to poor adherence, but to infection with an HIV virus with an unusual combination of resistance mutations. Two characteristics of the case make it hard to argue against this being a genuine case of PrEP breakthrough. Firstly, samples of blood and...
  • It’s no accident that Americans are remarkably ignorant about the Wuhan virus; 30 years ago, Democrats kept the public ignorant about another disease

    American Thinker ^ | 08/20/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    Franklin Templeton, an investment company, commissioned a Gallup research study to learn about Americans’ perceptions about the Wuhan virus, with an eye to better understanding the recovery. What the project revealed is that Americans grossly overestimate the risk that the Wuhan virus presents, especially to younger people. That they’re so worried isn’t surprising considering how the mainstream media has reported on the virus. For Democrats, hysteria helps. What struck me was that this deliberate effort to stoke ignorance is a replay of what the media did back in the mid-1980s with AIDS. Then, the press insisted that AIDS was...

    Three decades ago, a mysterious and terrifying plague began to take the lives of people across the world. Before this malady even had a name, it had a fierce opponent in Dr. Anthony Fauci. As the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than 23 years, Tony Fauci has led the fight against HIV and AIDS. He was also a leading architect and champion of the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which over the past five years has reached millions of people -- preventing HIV infections in infants and easing suffering and bringing dying communities...

    A Chinese virologist has alleged the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) developed the Chinese coronavirus in a lab and is an ‘engineered chimera’ with ‘gain of function’ capabilities…in other words, a bioweapon developed by the CCP that was released upon the world. She alleges Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization (WHO) are involved in a massive coverup for the Chicoms. A Chinese virologist and whistleblower on Wednesday (Aug. 5) claimed the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is a chimera based on the “Zhoushan bat virus” and chastised the World Health Organization (WHO) for lying about the virus and operating according to...

    Earlier this month, Dr. Anthony Fauci offered a pointed response to those who have challenged his stewardship of the pandemic as the nation's infectious disease chief: "I think you can trust me," he declared, citing his long record of service in government medicine. That is exactly what Fauci's National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) agency declared years ago to foster children in New York, Illinois and elsewhere, many of whom were enrolled in an AIDS drug trial without the promised patient protections. An investigation concluded the NIAID's AIDS research division that reported to Fauci had failed in many...
