HIV/AIDS Education: Find a Location & Get Tested, Nationwide Location Info Here

Medical discoveries in recent weeks have brought the HIV/AIDS virus and potential treatment options for the disease to the forefront.

The Kyoto Stem Cell paper, the Multiple Sclerosis nanoparticle study, and recent cancer treatments involving individual DNA strand assessment with personalized treatment have energized the scientific community and the general population as well.

But Sunday’s journal of Nature Biotechnology announced the results of a study co-authored by Stephen Miller, the Judy Gugenheim Research Professor of Microbiology-Immunology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This breakthrough study has shown promise in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis, effectively masking the myelin membrane that protects nerve cells in the brain from being destroyed by the human body’s own immune system, without involving the entire immune system.

This is good news for all people with auto-immune diseases, but none more than patients with the AIDS virus.

The AIDS virus is a debilitating disease, that appears to circumnavigate the human body’s own immune system, forcing it to attack itself and multiply infected t-cells at an alarming rate.

If you think you may be HIV positive, or have had unprotected sex or any other at risk type behavior, get tested now! Time is of the essence. Fully 50% of HIV infected individuals will die from the disease without proper treatment. But testing is the first step, so just do it!
