Dont delay Study confirms early treatment is best for HIV

first_img Top holiday drink recipes 0 Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober WASHINGTON (AP) — A major international study says don’t delay in seeking HIV treatment: Starting medication soon after diagnosis helps keep people healthy longer.People who started anti-AIDS drugs while their immune system was still strong were far less likely to develop AIDS or other serious illnesses than if they waited until blood tests showed their immune system was starting to weaken, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announced Wednesday. Sponsored Stories The findings are preliminary, but the NIH found them so compelling that it stopped the study a year early, so that all the participants could receive medication as researchers continue to track their health.How soon should treatment begin?“The sooner the better,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which funded the work.The findings support current U.S. guidelines that already recommend early treatment for HIV, but could alter care recommendations in other countries.HIV may not trigger symptoms for years, begging the question of how soon after diagnosis expensive medications that may cause side effects should be started. Previous studies have made clear that treatment dramatically lowers the chances that someone with HIV spreads the virus to a sexual partner. But there was less evidence that the HIV patient’s own health would benefit.The START trial — Strategic Timing of AntiRetroviral Treatment — sought proof by randomly assigning still healthy patients either to receive early therapy or to delay therapy until their CD4 cells, a key sign of immune system health, dropped into a worry zone. Top Stories Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Men’s health affects baby’s health too While the U.S. recommends treatment regardless of patients’ CD4 counts, the World Health Organization’s guidelines recommend that HIV-infected people begin treatment when their CD4 levels fall below normal, to 500 or below. But that doesn’t happen in many poor countries, where often people are sicker before they receive treatment and global funding to expand care is tight.Even in the U.S., many people don’t seek or stick with early care: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that only about 30 percent of Americans with HIV have their virus under control.The START trial enrolled 4,685 people in 35 countries, all of whom had CD4 counts in the healthy range — above 500 — and had never taken anti-HIV medication. Researchers tracked deaths, the development of AIDS-related illnesses and the development of serious non-AIDS events such as cancer, heart disease and kidney or liver disease.Over about three years, the risk of serious illness or death was reduced by 53 percent in the early treatment group, NIH said.The actual numbers of bad outcomes in both groups were very low, given that patients were so healthy when they enrolled in the study: 41 cases in the early-treatment group compared to 86 in the group that delayed treatment until their CD4 count dropped to near 350. Still, “this is another reason why we should be more aggressive in seeking out voluntary testing” and getting people care, Fauci said. “It tells you that you will benefit from therapy at whatever your CD4 count is.”The WHO is expected to reconsider its treatment guidelines soon.Fauci acknowledged that expanding early treatment would cost more up-front. But he contended that “at the end of the day, there’s no doubt that it’s going to be less expensive to treat people early,” and try to avoid the more expensive care of full-blown AIDS.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Honduran leader acknowledges campaign funds tied to scandal

first_img Sponsored Stories He said the businesspeople who gave the checks to his party were to blame and urged that the funds be returned as soon as possible.“The investigations must continue no matter who may fall,” Hernandez said in a televised interview.Investigators allege that a network led by the then-director of the Social Security Institute fraudulently misspent millions of dollars on goods and services that were marked up more than 100 percent, with kickbacks paid by businesses that benefited. At least part of the money purportedly ended up in the hands of the National Party.On Sunday, the prosecutor heading the case, Roberto Ramirez Aldana, fled the country after receiving death threats that authorities considered credible.Thousands of people who organized through social media marched in cities around the country over the weekend to demonstrate against the scandal, with some calling for Hernandez to resign.The president, whose four-year term began in January 2014, waged an expensive campaign to narrowly defeat Xiomara Castro, the wife of former President Manuel Zelaya, who was ousted in a 2009 coup backed by the National Party and the military.Hernandez said he has no intention of leaving office. He denied his party is responsible for the scandal, but notably mentioned his vice president and former National Party chief, Ricardo Alvarez. “I do not know at the moment if he has given a statement. Everyone must do so, and the court must issue its ruling,” Hernandez said.The former social security chief was captured after fleeing to Nicaragua and has since been imprisoned along with two former vice ministers of the Health and Labor ministries. They and the 18-member board of directors of the Social Security Institute are under investigation. All are members of the National Party.Protesters plan to march Friday to local offices of the United Nations to demand the creation of an international commission to investigate crime and impunity, similar to a body already operating in neighboring Guatemala.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Iraq tourism lies in Google Earth

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Losing yourself in the ancient world of the Assyrians, Mesopotamia is now as easy as loading your internet browser after Google Earth launched a Street View Gallery tour of Iraq’s National Museum.While much of Iraq’s rich ancient heritage remains under threat from looting and illegal diggings, the museum located in Baghdad houses and protects some of the oldest existing artefacts that date back to 6000BC.Working on the online project, Google Earth’s technical program manager Alex Starns explained in his online blog that the two year move into the virtual world was undertaken to preserve history that often goes unnoticed.“The history of this area is often underrepresented, or otherwise inaccessible, in large part due to the political strife that has plagued Iraq,” Mr Starns stated. “For this reason, we considered it an important opportunity to showcase Iraq’s National Museum in our Street View Gallery.”The Street View allows online travellers to scroll through the museum as well as virtually walk 360 degrees around each artefact.Objects on display in the online collection includes back of throne figures from the Neo-Assyrian period, pottery dating back to the Hassuna culture and statues constructed by the Babylonians.“This was our first attempt to capture an indoor collection at a museum, and we met a host of logistical and technical challenges,” Mr Starns added.“Of course, Coalition forces and the Iraqi government have a lot more pressing problems than archaeological preservation, but they ignore it at their peril. “Preserving Iraq’s past will help secure Iraq’s future. “Once the country becomes stable (whenever that happens) places like Nineveh will be a huge tourist draw.”While Google aims to protect the region’s historical and tourism assets, the Iraqi Government is being urged to increase protection around the famous ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh.The 2,700 year old biblical ruins located near the Tigris River in Iraq once populated by more than 100,000 Assyrians, has suffered at the hands of Iraqis and will cease to exist without pre-emptive restoration, according to Global Heritage Fund (GHF). “Nineveh has already been heavily attacked by looters, and now development pressures from nearby Mosul have begun to take their toll as well,” GHF explained.  “If this encroachment continues, Nineveh’s ancient remains could again be buried forever.”Click here to check out the virtual tourlast_img read more

Mobile phones just plane annoying

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: S.P. A recent survey has revealed that 86 percent of people are against their fellow passengers being permitted to use their mobile phones whilst in flight.The survey, conducted by Skyscanner has found that the majority of people felt it was ‘annoying to have to listen to other people’s conversations’.This finding comes just as Virgin Atlantic announced it will permit mobile phone calls on its New York to London route, becoming one of the first international airlines to allow the usage of mobiles in-flight.Despite the majority of people welcoming advancements in internet connectivity it appears that the majority of people would prefer to not have the constant chatter of other people’s conversations when in confined spaces.The  survey also revealed that if the service was available 48 percent of people would send texts, 35 percent said they would surf the net, ten percent said they would send e-mails and only six percent said they would actually make and take a call.Additionally only one percent of those interviewed said they would pay more to fly with a carrier that offered mobile calls.Skyscanner marketing development manager for Australia Dave Boyte said flying was the only time we were allowed to truly switch off.“Now with Virgin’s move into on-board mobile and the introduction of Wi-Fi on flights in Australia it is only a matter of time before we are always on call,” Mr Boyte said.last_img read more

Maybe it wasnt ever going to be much of a contest

first_imgMaybe it wasn’t ever going to be much of a contest. Elliot Harrison of NFL.com set out to name the best player in every NFC team’s history, and the Arizona Cardinals’ selection really doesn’t come as much of a surprise.ARIZONA CARDINALS: Larry Fitzgerald, wide receiverWhen you think of Fitzgerald’s career, you probably begin to ponder hard-luck athletes across sports. Of course, that’s really the story with every great player in Cardinals history — there just haven’t been enough winning seasons to go around. That said, the first thought that comes to my mind is Fitzgerald’s performance in the 2008 postseason: 30 catches for 546 yards and seven touchdowns! Another Larry, Hall of Fame safety Larry Wilson, was the toughest competition here. Harrison notes Fitzgerald’s historic postseason run, which was truly something to behold.
