Baby born with HIV apparently cured - a start
« on: March 03, 2013, 06:31:14 PM »
Once again, if you follow the science involved, from the study of viruses to the start of the HIV virus to the years of work by doctors worldwide, built on the study of medicine by humanity - there is absolutely no god involved.

 For atheists, it is obvious - but for the convoluted logic theists need, it involves maybe a God, Adam and Eve, evil, Satan, gays and lesbians, the religious needing to suffer, sin, punishment, etc.   Islam says - "There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He also has created its treatment."  Jerry Falwel said  - "AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals, it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."  And then other religious crap - "The AIDS weapon program, for which the Jews already secretly have an antidote, which they refuse to give to the blacks and others they have poisoned, is tetrasilver tetroxide, US patent number 5676977, ‘METHOD OF CURING AIDS WITH TETRASILVER TETROXIDE MOLECULAR CRYSTAL DEVICES’, application number 658,955 filed May 31st., 1996, by Antelman Technologies, Israel."

Here's reality - the science involved:
Quote
The Mississippi case shows "there may be different cures for different populations of HIV-infected people," said Dr. Rowena Johnston of amFAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. That group funded Persaud's team to explore possible cases of pediatric cures.

It also suggests that scientists should look back at other children who've been treated since shortly after birth, including some reports of possible cures in the late 1990s that were dismissed at the time, said Dr. Steven Deeks of the University of California, San Francisco, who also has seen the findings.

"This will likely inspire the field, make people more optimistic that this is possible," he said.

In the Mississippi case, the mother had had no prenatal care when she came to a rural emergency room in advanced labor. A rapid test detected HIV. In such cases, doctors typically give the newborn low-dose medication in hopes of preventing HIV from taking root. But the small hospital didn't have the proper liquid kind, and sent the infant to Gay's medical center. She gave the baby higher treatment-level doses.

(1) Miss? that's odd.

(2) I think this is the 2nd case of such a thing.  Can they get something from this kid to use as a vaccine?

(3)  Should I say, "Thank God" or "Science strikes again"?
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

They interviewed a doctor on the Austrian news about this, and he said that he wishes everybody would just wait for the follow-up already. After all, the virus is still in the system and the case is a sample of one.

I said "thank you" out loud.

This is an extraordinarily rare case which involved neglect and abuse, and one which cannot be duplicated.

The child was born with HIV because her mother received no prenatal care, and no anti retrovirals during her pregnancy, which would, in most cases, have prevented HIV in the infant. 

Then the child was supposed to receive regular medication, but her mom failed to keep doctors' appointments, and then fell off the grid.  When they finally found the mom and the kid, the tests on the kid surprised them. 

But this can't be duplicated.

It's just that cloning people, giving them AIDS, and then depriving them of regular health care is generally considered bad form.
