Breakthrough in Study On Treating HIV Babies



Breakthrough in Study On Treating HIV Babies

Treating babies infected with HIV as soon as they are diagnosed rather than waiting until they show signs of illness dramatically increases their chances of survival, according to a South African study presented yesterday at the 4th International AIDS Conference on HIV pathogenisis, treatment and prevention.
The research could change the way doctors around the world care for the half a million HIV-positive babies born each year.
Despite the government's free programme for preventing mother to child transmission of HIV, at least 50000 infected babies are born in SA each year.
Local treatment guidelines say doctors should wait until HIV positive infants fall sick, or their immune systems show signs of weakness before starting lifelong antiretroviral treatment.
That may well change in the wake of the Children With Early Antiretroviral Therapy (Cher) study, which found that babies who were treated before three months of age did better than infants whose treatment was delayed.
Researchers found there were 75% fewer deaths among babies who got treatment immediately compared with those whose treatment was deferred.
The continuing study, funded by the US National Institutes of Health, had enrolled 377 babies by early this year . Ten of the 252 babies who got early treatment died (4%), compared with 20 of the 125 babies who started treatment only when they fell sick (16%). The babies were given a three-drug cocktail of AZT, 3TC and Kaletra.
"This is an overwhelming difference in survival among infants treated early," said the study's co-chair Avi Violari, head of the pediatric division of the Perinatal HIV Research Unit at the University of the Witwatersrand.
Scientists hoped that early treatment would slow progression of the disease, allowing babies' immature immune systems to develop, she said.
Once their immune systems were strong and could hold HIV at bay, the idea was to interrupt treatment and start again only when they showed signs of illness. This would hopefully allow children to avoid starting life-long medication at an early age, she said.
Dr Francois Venter, president of the Southern African HIV Clinicians' Society, said the study had broad implications for SA. "It may mean initiating treatment as soon as a diagnosis is made -- and that means SA has to get PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing into every clinic," he said.
Babies born to HIV-positive women cannot be diagnosed with the widely available anti-body tests usually used for adults and children .
The Cher findings came to light last month after a routine review by the trial's independent data and safety monitoring board. The results led the researchers to stop the "deferred treatment" group, and offer all the babies immediate treatment.
Study co-chair Mark Cotton said: "The prevention of mother to child transmission programme is failing. It's a national disgrace."

his comment i moses paul placing is not like
the day by day advert you read online before!! Its a
comment that you must read to avoid been ripped
off and know the real spell caster on earth God
sent to change and turn lives around without any
harm / side effect. I am so over joyful as my
mouth can not start to say all that really happened,
It happened when i saw dr alaho advert online
talking about been the best when there are so
many spell casters online that i have used that has
failed me.I spent almost close to $8000 dollars
online for those spell casters that ripped me off my
money without any result. But when i saw Dr alaho
advert online saying that there is no spell caster
like him and so many other testimonies about him
from various people and from various countries in
the world were it was written that dr alaho herbal
center is the best that there is non to be compared
to his cure, Already i have personally take a
decision never to apply to any herbal doctor online
again after loosing such amount of funds on line to
those scammers.But i don't really know what drew
my spirit / attention to that advert online that
faithful afternoon, { I call it a faithful afternoon
because all i desire was granted to me} There was
an email at the end of his advert and on the good
comment from the FBI and various people about
him, I decided to send him an email telling him
my problem about my HIV virus, money that i have
lost to scammers and also having problems with
the love of my life that i want to get married to.
After some few minutes i received an email from
him that contain the spell application form that i
filled out and he told me that to get my HIV cure
that i will have to get some items that i could not
get here when i went in-search for it. He said if i
can not get the items, That is going to cost me an
amount of just $390 dollars for my kind of case
that i told him about which i doubted to be
another scam online, As i have read so many tips
online that money should not be sent to someone
you do not know via western union / money gram
payment information's. And Dr alaho insisted that i
will be sending money to his messenger via this
wire means. I was so skeptical because i was
scammed in such a way of $8000 dollars
before,But this same spirits that attracted me to
his advert told me inside again that this herbal
cure is real and noting but real that i should go
ahead and send him the amount since i know that
there is no how i can get the items that he told me
that will be needed for my HIV
I sent him the
charges through his messenger to please help me
get the item with the money to get my HIV cure.He
promised me that in the next 2 weeks that i will
start to see results after the spell has been casted
to cure my HIV virus and others. I could not
believe this because i have really been scammed
and ripped off too many times for me to just
believe till it works. To be sincere i almost faint as
i was filled with so much excitement and
happiness after 2 weeks when i went for check up i
was now HIV negative . Then in the next 2 days the
FBI called to tell me that they have been able to
get the scammer that is with my money. I am so
proud and happy to spread the good-news about
this man because he surprised me in his wonderful
and powerfully work that restored back my life.
One thing that i also loved about this man is that
he is understandable and he reduce or negotiate
how much you can get for the work you want him
to help you with. You want to meet with this
