As I've been studying viruses and imagining them all inside me and viral load and such, is there any downside to anti viral medications? Is there any provirus like probiotics where maybe some good viruses exist?
Has anyone heard of this? I know that a lot of these clinical trials don't always make it to commercialization, but this one seems fairly promising. Can someone comment on the future viability of this potentially therapeutic vaccine in the next 10-15 years or so? I don't need too much technical detail, I'd just like to know someone's opinion on this vaccine's future potential for treating patients with cervical dysplasia. I personally struggle with LGSIL (mild dyspepsia) and would love to have some hope for myself and the many others infected with high risk HPV.
I was playing with my friends people and the dog isn’t vaccinated for rabies. The dog was teething on my hand and after 3 days the bites on my hands started to itch and tingling a shoot pain in my arm. I went to the hospital and asked the doctors for rabies shot but they wouldn’t give it to me. The dog is still alive it’s been 14 days since I was bitten. I’m getting tingling and shooting pain in my arm. I’m worried because rabies is asymptomatic.
Hey y’all, I’m interested in continuing my biology career post-college in virology or immunology(either or). I do not want to become a professor at a university. What are some jobs that would be out there besides jobs at the CDC?
Hey y’all, I recently say a video on YouTube about the HIV virus and what it is and the processes it goes to reproduce. Is there a good guide to learn more about HIV and study it? I have one year of college level bio under my belt so hopefully a guide I can read? Thanks yall
Long title but doing some more research on HSV I’ve found/ known that hsv 1 and hsv 2 are both in the herpes family, along with chicken pox and shingles.
Both the chicken pox vaccine and the shingles vaccine are a weakened or dead virus vaccinations. If it’s been proven that the vaccines with live virus inside them work on 2 other forms of the same family of virus why hasn’t this been tried before / why has no one tried this before?
And now with crispr should make it really easy to weaken a live viral vaccine for the simplex virus.
Minus rational vaccines (under investigation) for dosing people without overwatch with a live weakened strain of the herpes simplex virus, I haven’t found much on other trials or attempts to create such a vaccine. So yeah it’s really my question is why history showed that a live virus vaccine worked and can’t find any live vaccination study for the simplex virus.
If you have any links I’d enjoy a read, or if you want to explain what you know I’d also love to read it.
