I just really wanna #know…what happened in #Uganda though?
#Love, #kampala #locals…tell me, what did she do?!
Then she came back to America and studied moms and babies in #Baltimore… 🤔🤔
I have my beef overall with western/european #psychology. I desire to know wahhhh gwannnn!!!
what were you actually doing? I recall how y'all treating animals in experiments before rules were changed…and highly melanated people, ESPECIALLY those in perceived “third world countries” extra didn’t receive rights and respect…the animals, more than likely, had legal rights and were treated better before us.
So, when #scientists and #psychologist and any other wanna do social experiments went to connect with people, what communities did y'all go to violate?
Most times, these therapists had no experience with anyone outside of their culture and class…so I want to know what you were doing to people you had no regard for. (Not saying y'all all were #shady…yet often time, the “innocence constituents the crime.”
Experimenting like you ain’t got no damn sense?
Anywho, let me get back to #writing and stop chatting with my dry lips. 😂😂
shoutout to @nativesorganics for being the first #natural at-#home #charcoal mask I’ve used to care for my #face. Self-Love is where it’s at y'all! And knowwww that you don’t want to use them popular products ie. #dove, #victoriasecret, #bathandbodyworks, etc. = #poison.
When scientists made the stunning announcement last year that a baby born with H.I.V. had apparently been cured through aggressive drug treatment just 30 hours after birth, there was immediate skepticism that the child had been infected in the first place.
But on Wednesday, the existence of a second such baby was revealed at an AIDS conference here, leaving little doubt that the treatment works. A leading researcher said there might be five more such cases in Canada and three in South Africa.
And a clinical trial in which up to 60 babies who are born infected will be put on drugs within 48 hours is set to begin soon, another researcher added.
If that trial works — and it will take several years of following the babies to determine whether it has — the protocol for treating all 250,000 babies born infected each year worldwide will no doubt be rewritten.
“This could lead to major changes, for two reasons,” said Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, executive director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Both for the welfare of the child, and because it is a huge proof of concept that you can cure someone if you can treat them early enough.”
The announcement was the third piece of hopeful news in two days about the virus that causes AIDS.
On Tuesday, scientists reported that injections of long-lasting AIDS drugs fended off infection in monkeys, and on Wednesday, researchers announced a “gene editing” advance that might enable immune cells to repel the virus.
The first infant to make an apparent recovery from H.I.V. infection, now famous as the “Mississippi baby,” was described last March at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, the same annual meeting where the new case was reported on Wednesday.
The Mississippi child, now more than 3 years old, is still virus-free, said Dr. Deborah Persaud, a virologist who has run ultrasensitive tests on both children in her lab at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore.
The second baby, a girl born at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, Calif., is now 9 months old and apparently free of the virus that causes AIDS.
Her mother, who has advanced AIDS and is mentally ill, arrived in labor; she had been prescribed drugs to protect her baby but had not taken them.
Four hours after the birth, a pediatrician, Dr. Audra Deveikis, drew blood for an H.I.V. test and immediately started the baby on three drugs — AZT, 3TC and nevirapine — at the high doses usually used for treatment of the virus.
The normal preventive regimen for newborns would be lower doses of two drugs; doctors usually do not use the more aggressive treatment until they are sure the baby is infected, and then sometimes not in the first weeks.
“Of course I had worries,” Dr. Deveikis said in an interview here. “But the mother’s disease was not under control, and I had to weigh the risk of transmission against the toxicity of the meds.”
“I’d heard of the Mississippi baby, I’d watched the video,” she added. “I knew that if you want to prevent infection, early treatment is critical.”
