New, Aggressive HIV Strain
| Hello Jeff - It looks like this new killer form of HIV was first identified
in Cuba. Now that Obama has begun to normalize relations with Cuba,
we will be the recipient of yet, another group of immigrant illegals,
It appears that Cuba is getting the best deal on this new normalization of relations. We get all of the economic immigrants who come to the US for jobs and free welfare. Already Miiami is so crime ridden that the first immigrants who came to the US back in the 1950s are moving out of Miami. The old immigrants are afraid of these new Cubans.
And of course, another benefit of normal relations for Cuba is foreign aid to Cuba.
What does the US get? Well, we get to pay for the foreign aid to Cuba, we get to pay for the illegal immigrants now coming to the US, we get to pay for the cost of free medical, cost of welfare and food stamps and housing. Same ole same ole.
We also get to pay for our own bills when we become infected with TB, HIV/Aids, HCV, Chagas, and all of the tropical maladys brought to the US by unscreened illegals now from Cuba.
When are we going to take care of our own people and stop aiding every foreign country. From the Cuban point of view, they are not going to trade with the US and buy our products until all of their demands are met. So, this new normalization of relations seems to be going one way, it benefits Cuba.
New Aggressive HIV Strain Discovered In Chicago
Talk about super-viruses, and the new HIV virus seems to have become the talk of the town. This new strain of HIV could progress to full-blown AIDS within just 3 years if left untreated, and has reportedly become an epidemic among newly infected individuals in Cuba who had unprotected sex with multiple partners, a study published by international researchers has revealed.
This strain of the HIV virus is a combination of three different subtypes of the virus, and progresses so fast that the researchers have started to worry that the affected patients might not even get time to seek antiretroviral therapy until it is too late.
The findings of this study are published in the journal EBioMedicine, and they raise many concerns among researchers who are worrying about mutated HIV viruses that are difficult to diagnose, which may also become resistant to therapy and could become a challenge.
In small study, aggressive HIV strain identified in Cuba
Hector Bolivar, a physician and infectious disease specialist with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, said “HIV research community has long known about the virus’ capacity to mutate and create new versions. More than 60 strains of HIV type 1 exist in the world because of mutations.”
The researchers recruited patients from an Institute in Havana who had tested negative for HIV around three years before getting diagnosed, and had not received antiretroviral therapy.
The researchers studied the blood of 73 patients infected with HIV of which 52 were diagnosed with AIDS while 21 were not diagnosed with AIDS. They then compared these results with the blood samples of patients who had progressed to AIDS after living with HIV for more than 3 years.
They found that the patients who were infected with the mutated strain of HIV developed AIDS within just 3 years, while on an average, infected people develop AIDS within 6-10 years.
The researchers stress that individuals who engage in unprotected sex with multiple partners could increase their risk of being contracted by multiple HIV strains that could mutate into a new strain once they enter the host.
