HIV/AIDS medical research is a waste of money

Two thirds of this year’s Nobel Prize in medicine is awarded to Francoise Barre-Sinoussi and Luc Montagnier for their discovery of HIV, the virus that cause AIDS (the last third of the Prize goes to Harald zur Hausen for the discovery that the human papilloma virus causes cervical cancer). Although it is now 25 years since HIV was first isolated we are no closer of finding a cure/vaccine for it. It is becoming more and more clear that if our biggest interest lies in eradicating HIV we need to stop wasting time and money on medical research.

I have mentioned it before on this blog (e.g. Thabo Mbeki should have won Nobel Prize in medicine) that the HIV-virus has an almost unique combination of traits, which makes it so successful in spreading and avoiding being “caught”. The fact that HIV attacks our immune system’s “virus defence”, and that it constantly mutates is bad enough. An extra fuel to this fire is that the virus predominately spreads by sexual contact and has a very long incubation time.

Being that it is the less developed countries that are hit the most by the HIV plague. It feels almost somewhat immoral to do research for vaccines/cures that most of the HIV-exposed people in the world won’t be able to afford. The focus should instead be directed towards many of the so-called secondary causes to AIDS. The rapid spread of HIV is much due to the very intense promiscuous human nature, which is probably best addressed by ABC (Abstinence, Being Faithful, Condomise).

Moreover, it has been suggested that high food prices have a significant effect on both proactive and reactive HIV/AIDS measures. As can be found in a very interesting article by Peace Nganwa there are several less obvious causes to the spread of HIV, which all can be linked to food insecurity (see How high food prices increase the risk of HIV). For example high food prices forces many poor families to pull out their children from school, which deprives them of education about HIV/AIDS and ABC.

Although I have said it before, I will say it again. The battle against HIV/AIDS will not be won in the medical research labs, it can only be won out in the field. Efforts need to be put into minimize the secondary causes of the spread of HIV/AIDS. This has to be done by a change of attitudes, especially among politicians, and change of social and political structures. I am not entirely sure who will be best suited for this job, but I think there is a potential among the people that live in HIV-infested areas, and understand how the disease is linked to many other factors in society. If these people would be given the same resources as medical researches, I am sure they would be more successful in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Jaha, och nästa gång det dyker upp ett virus som är lika avancerat som HIV men som dödar oss direkt? Är pengarna bortkastade då också? Eller vill du att vi skall återupprepa samma långsamma process att få fram bromsmediciner och vård då med?

Sjukt korkat inlägg.

Det talas om kostandseffektivitet överallt, men inte i detta fall, varför?

F ö så är HIV inte särskilt avancerat, utan istället en väldigt enkel och imperfekt patogen.

I like your thinking. I am from an African country that saw a drop in HIV infection from about 30% to 6%. The battle was won by the "ABC" technique but the war is still ongoing. You said it correctly that AIDS though caused by HIV is spread by social, political and economic factors. A child out of school is more likely to contract the virus, a commercial sex worker trying to find a way out of poverty has a higher chance of catching the virus, a person with the virus but living in poverty and so cannot afford good nutrition has a high chance of getting Aids. The list goes on. Governments should focus efforts on preventing the spread, on improving the lifestyles of the poor, on health care and education.

I am glad to hear some concurrence from a person from Africa.
I hope for a shift in paradigm when it come to fighting HIV/AIDS, as this pathogen/disease is not like anything we encountered before, and we really need some thinking outside the box to be able to win this battle.

Question:
Are you saying that ARV's are not helpful in the battle against HIV?
They have cut the mortality tremendously in the western world, and enabled HIV-infected mothers in Africa and elsewhere to give birth to HIV-negative children, in this way severly curtailing the effect of the epidemic.

To say that the research leading up to ARV's were not cost effective, given the number of lives saved, seems an extremely strong, and very unlikely statement...

Geoffrey Goines said...

>Gustaf

Sorry, but were have the ARVs cut down mortality? Most HIV-positive in the world are excluded (for various reasons) from the benefit of getting ARVs. And moreover, if you read the article that i linked to, you see that the ARVs have little effect among the poorest people.

Furthermore, correct me if I am wrong, but hasnt the transmission of HIV from mother to child upon birth has mainly been due to poor health care and lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS?

THE CURE for HIV/AIDS.......AMBUSH

THE IDEA that AMBUSH cures AIDS
is being proven by the more than 400 individuals who have taken a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. The result is that AMBUSH 'KILLS' the virus by causing the protein envelope to rupture and the viral particles are discarded by the white blood cells. AMBUSH is able to 'KILL' the virus that are 'hiding' in the lymph system by its 'natural radioactive' properties. This process allows the body to 'return to normal health' with a corresponding immunity to that or those strains of the virus.

What is AMBUSH ?
AMBUSH is a radioactive isotope of uranium that is found in the 'palm' plant of which there are more than 3000 species. When ingested, AMBUSH causes the body temperature in the trunk area to rise to about 102 degrees when the individual is sleeping. The preparation takes four hours per batch, which is then given to the individuals for consumption 60 ml three times daily for 21 days. AMBUSH is a herbal preparation in this form but it contains an active ingredient which is a 'NEW' crystalline substance, a drug from the 'palm plant' similarly to ASPIRIN originating from the willow tree bark

RESULTS:
After 21 days on AMBUSH, ALL the individuals experienced a decrease in viral load to undetectable, an increase in cd4, increase in RBC, an improvement in general health such as more color to the face, decrease in Buffalo hump, an increase in gluteal muscles, a decrease to having no joint pains whereby individuals can bend to touch their toes, and walk up steps are but a few examples. There is also a dramatic increase in their sexual appetite beginning after the first week of therapy

DISCUSSION:
In any plant concoction such as percolated 'tea', there are 30-40,000 compounds, whi ch would take the scientific community twenty years to isolate one particular ingredient if they knew what they were looking for. The LORD GOD has given me seven steps to isolate the active ingredient, which is soft and metallic in nature and has a carbon- uranium-sulfur-(classified)-phentolamine configuration or structure. This is similar to Federick Kekule and the discovery of the benzene ring where he dreamt the structure.

As an antiviral and 'natural radioactivity' producing agent, AMBUSH is also effective against leukemia, lupus and HPV. Here I am saying that I have 'GIVEN' AMBUSH in the same 'strength' and dosage to patients with leukemia, lupus and HPV. A 35 year old male with HIV found it difficult to impossible to urinate was put on 'green tea' and water while the doctors contemplated prostrate surgery. One of the doctors gave him my number , I sent him a supply of AMBUSH an d he has not been given any more ARV's, since taking AMBUSH 18 months ago, is in 'good' health and has expressed a willingness to be examined by HIV investigators like many others who have taken AMBUSH.

I have sent this 'IDEA' to most HIV research agencies, scientist of the field, universities, hospitals, clinics, politicians and news agencies to which it is REJECTED because the name of THE LORD GOD is mentioned. He has steered me scientifically through the processes such as which plant and how to produce the active ingredient. What are the odds of a Florida Pharmacist picking a plant would contain the CURE for HIV/AIDS ?
I have never charged any of the people for their supply of AMBUSH but a life saving has been spent on the project with NO renumeration from any sources because AMBUSH falls outside the walls of modern medicine and research.

PROPOSAL:

My proposal is that I PROVE that AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS by giving it to a number of END-STAGE or DRUG-RESISTANT people and the scientific community watches their recovery. This proposal addresses the problem in that I have already outlaid the results to be obtained.

This IDEA is unconventional in that the scientific community has rejected AMBUSH because I say it is GOD given. Secondly if I wrote it according to certain standards, then it might be peer reviewed. However, THE LORD GOD has also shown me that there are five enzyme systems associated with the virus, reverse transcriptase, protease, fusion and two more of which causes the virus to be AIRBOURNE. This means that without DIVINE intervention mankind and ALL warm- blooded mammals will be extinct in a number of years.

The PROOF of what I am saying is found in scientific papers wherein it is found that when the protease cuts the viral strands, it cuts it at DIFFERENT lengths EVERY time, to which it should always be a valine at the end but is a different amino acid every time. This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce a VACCINE.

Since this is NOT a hypothesis but there are about 400 individuals who have taken AMBUSH, here lies a vast area in which to check, recheck and confirm that AMBUSH CURES AIDS. Let it be mentioned that during the HIV reproductive cycle, reverse transcriptase converts viral RNA into DNA compatible to human genetic materials. Thus the human DNA has been 'hijacked' and since each person has a DIFFERENT DNA, then the new viral copy is unique to that person which shows that each individual has a DIFFERENT STRAIN of the virus. Consider two HIV positive people swapping viral strains and increasing its complexity with multiple partners.
It can also be proposed that they be revisited as proof that the strain or strains that they had were 'killed' at the time of taking AMBUSH considering that a person can catch as many different strains as there are people who are infected by HIV.
I am also willing to work with the scientific community in identifying those individuals who took AMBUSH and wish to be identified with this process notwithstanding that some are stigmatized while others are jubilant,

Once AMBUSH is verified as being able to accomplish that which is aforementioned then the next stage might be the natural and artificial synthesis of the substance.

Finally, if this is accepted or not, believed or not, THE LORD GOD always wins and this is the heavenly truth to which AMBUSH was divinely given to mankind for the CURE of HIV/AIDS and it will be here forever. Apostle Shada Mishe.

Den som arbetat 10 år med HIVpositiva gravida kvinnor är tacksam och glad för den medicinska forskningen. Varje rön minskade smittan och lidandet, vidare smitta samt pengar för samhället. Glad att fått bidra till detta på mitt sätt. Elina

Jag hoppas att du läste den länk som fanns i inlägget om hur ökning i matpriser är kopplad till HIV.
Må vara att mediciner lindrar för många HIV sjuka, men om penagarna som lagts på HIV-forksningen lagts på andra åtgärder så hade man troligen minskat lidandet ännu mer.

@apostle

Perhaps you should be approaching the scientists and researchers in terms they acknowledge (such as scientific ones), rather than religious ones, and then they will listen. And afterwards, if it turns out you are right, THEN you will be incredibly famous and have the ability to preach your good news to your hearts content.

Because you know that they refuse your valid information based on your inclusion of religion, it is your own fault you are being rejected, and your own fault that you do not have the opportunity to spread G-d. People are more open to ideas when you aren't trying to shove them down their throats.

hello friend very very interesting ans educational post about HIV/AIDS medical research is a waste of money I want to add some information about HIV: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a member of the retrovirus family) that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in humans in which the immune system begins to fail, leading to life-threatening opportunistic infections. Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells. The four major routes of transmission are unsafe sex, contaminated needles, breast milk, and transmission from an infected mother to her baby at birth (Vertical transmission). Screening of blood products for HIV has largely eliminated transmission through blood transfusions or infected blood products in the developed world.

Oftentimes, hospital services are decentralized, departmentalized, or even managed by contracted services. There may be little or no centralization of efforts. There may be minimal regard, knowledge or control over minimizing waste or environmental impact. If healthcare organizations really want to decrease costs and reduce their carbon footprint, they must embrace sustainability with the full support of top management. They must pay close attention to what they purchase and what they discard. Medical Waste Disposal Newport News Va

So after all set has been done, he promise me that i will be healed but on a condition that i provide him some items and obeyed all his oracle said. I did all by accepting his oracolous fact and only to see that the following week Dr fadeyi mail me on my mail box that my work is successfully done with his powers, i was first shocked and later arise to be the happiest woman on earth after i have concluded my final test on the hospital by my doctor that i am now HIV- Negative.
