HIV Meds Can Benefit Positive Gay Meth and Cocaine Users

So you can continue to enjoy a vein full of crystal meth and a nose full of cocaine--and still benefit from Truvada and all the other lifesavingtreatments.

A green light for Friends of Tina?

You be the  judge




HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) and who use stimulants such as methamphetamine or cocaine can benefit significantly from antiretroviral (ARV) treatment. Publishing their findings in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) conducted a study of 1,313 HIV-positive MSM who started ARVs while participating in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study. The data on the participants was collected between 1996 and 2012.

A total of 341 of the men reported using stimulants. The researchers found no significant correlation between any level of stimulant use and risk of death from any cause. Nor did an analysis that separately examined AIDS-related deaths and non-AIDS-related deaths indicate any correlation to stimulant use.

Profiteering with PrEP (PreExposure Prophylaxis). Gilead pharmaceutical company's toxic Truvada for so-called HIV





by Terry Michael, September 30, 2014

I trace how a supplemental use for Gilead's HIV chemotherapy went from confirmation-biased clinical trials, funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH/NIAID director; to approval by the FDA, in a corrupt "user fee" (funded by Gilead) fast-tracked process, just in time for Fauci to announce it at the International AIDS Society "XIX AIDS Conference" in Washington, DC, in July 2012; to the CDC's  compliant  endorsement in May 2014; and now is being touted by a science-uninformed mass media and gay press, heavily promoted by the Gilead public relations machine.



America’s AIDS czar for almost 30 years, Dr. Anthony Fauci has promoted and shepherded human experimental research that has exposed HIV negative Third World men and women to toxic chemotherapy, many already health-challenged from lack of clean water, poor sanitation, malnutrition and old diseases like tuberculosis and malaria. The experiments were to demonstrate “Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis” (PrEP) for the anti-viral drug Truvada. Like other nucleoside analogs, Truvada has well-assessed adverse (“side”) effects. Funded with tax dollars and non-profit grants, including tens of millions from Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as well as from the CDC and USAID, studies have accrued to the sole benefit of a politically well- connected U.S. drug corporation, Gilead, the only company to “donate” pills for the clinical trials

When PrEP was discussed initially in mainstream media, including in a New York Times articlepublished January 22, 2006 (later critically reviewed by independent journalist Liam Scheff), human guinea pigs, almost all impoverished Third World subjects, were already in early phase trials, designed to produce results that would allow Gilead eventually to seek FDA approval for re- purposing its “Viread” but later only its “Truvada” chemotherapy for use by HIV antibody negative Americans, for theoretical protection from a virus proclaimed by the U.S. government in 1984 as a discrete pathogen responsible for the amorphous health condition described since 1982 as “acquired immune deficiency syndrome,” or “AIDS.” Under patent protection until 2021, Truvada remains more profitable for Gilead than Viread, for which a generic can be sold as early as December 2016.

Black market for "lifesaving HIV treatments"

The Washington Post

Watchdog: Some Medicare spending on HIV drugs appear questionable in 2012 audit 
By Charles Ornstein

"Medicare spent more than $30 million in 2012 on questionable HIV medication costs, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services said in a report set for release Wednesday.

The report offers a litany of possible fraud schemes, all paid for by Medicare’s prescription drug program known as Part D."

 Medicare paid over $30 million in fraud schemes to thieves re-sell the "lifesaving treatments."  

The only thing missed is that every penny Medicare, Medicaid, ADAP, the VA, etc pays for "ARVs" is a gigantic fraud for worthless, dangeorus toxic chemotherapy.--Terry Michael

In Detroit, a 77-year-old woman purportedly filled $33,500 worth of prescriptions for 10 different HIV medications. But there’s no record that she had HIV or that she had visited the doctors who wrote the scripts.

A 48-year-old in Miami went to 28 pharmacies to pick up HIV drugs worth nearly $200,000, almost 10 times what average patients get in a year. The prescriptions were supposedly written by 16 health providers.

And on a single day, a third patient received $17,500 worth of HIV drugs ­ and none the rest of the year. She acquired more than twice the recommended dose of five HIV drug ingredients.

WHO IWorld Health Organization) now wants ALL gay men to take antiretroviral drugs for the rest of their life

"Among men who have sex with men, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is recommended as an additional HIV prevention choice within a comprehensive HIV prevention package. NEW RECOMMENDATION"


In this new consolidated guidelines document on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for key populations, the World Health Organization brings together all existing guidance relevant to five key populations – men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings, sex workers and transgender people – and updates selected guidance and recommendations.

These guidelines aim to:
  • provide a comprehensive package of evidence-based HIV-related recommendations for all key populations;
  • increase awareness of the needs of and issues important to key populations;
  • improve access, coverage and uptake of effective and acceptable services; and
  • catalyze greater national and global commitment to adequate funding and services

POSITIVE HELL: THE STORY OF FIVE INDIVIDUALS’ DEFIANCE OF THE AIDS DOGMA

A film by Andi Reiss and Joan Shenton

Positive Hell is the story of five individuals who have defied their doctors and lived on for nearly thirty years with a diagnosis of death. The film highlights a network of people diagnosed HIV Positive in the province of Galicia in Northern Spain.

Some of them, like physician Dr Manuel Garrido, have never taken any antiviral drugs. He’s been swimming against the tide of medical orthodoxy for three decades.
Raquel has had two children who are fit and well and are HIV negative and her husband, Pablo is also HIV negative.
Others like Manoel took antivirals for a while and found they made him feel so ill he stopped taking them. How can this be? Haven’t we been told that everybody who tests positive is sure to die? Dothese people have a special magic gene that protects them against HIV? Or could it be that this death sentence has been mistaken all along?
The five protagonists describe their struggle to survive when faced with a death sentence, their experiences as social pariahs, their battles with doctors and the medical orthodoxy and their absolute conviction that the science behind AIDS is cruelly wrong.

A New York Times opinion section "debate" about Truvada and so-called "Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis" or "PrEP."

In one of their "Room for Debate" features, The Opinion Pages of The New York Times 

June 17 chose five mostly HIV-AIDS Industry likely suspects to "debate" use of Gilead's toxic chemotherapy Truvada for so-called "PrEP."
Is a Pill Enough to Fight H.I.V.?http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2014/06/17/is-prep-a-good-way-to-fight-hiv-infections?hp&rref=opinion
It wasn't much of a "debate," more akin to: "French fries: possibly fattening, pretty much OK, or really f'king great?"  The missing position:"You're poisoning yourself, stupid!"

What Does The Normal Heart Mean in 2014?

By  and 

Really thought out article



J. Bryan Lowder: Well hello, June. I must say, after watching Ryan Murphy's take on Larry Kramer's loud and moving and blunt and unrelenting old play, I am acutely aware of our relationship as gay man and lesbian woman—your people are, after all, the ones who were so crucial in helping mine get our shit together during the AIDS crisis, so thanks for that. And I am also thinking a lot about generations: You lived through the events depicted here; I was born in 1987, two years after The Normal Heart first ran off-Broadway. AIDS has certainly been a presence in my life as a gay man, but it is not defining for me in the way I know it is for older queers. There are a lot of things to talk about with an object like this film—it's a work of art, a historical document, a piece of propaganda, and one fairly narcissistic man's memoir all at once. I find it very difficult to appraise without reams of caveats and sidebars. Perhaps a place to start: Did you think this movie worked as a movie?

"HOUSE OF NUMBERS" FIGHTING TO GET organic CHEMISIST YOUTUBE ACCOUNT SHUT DOWN — AND THEY MIGHT WIN

"So the copyright system on YouTube still has a few kinks to be worked out …

Myles Power, a scientist working in the vein of making YouTube videos, is in danger of losing his account over copyright infringement.” Powers used footage from a controversial documentary “House of Numbers,” a film that allegedly makes assertions that the AIDS crisis is manufactured by big pharma to sell worthless medication. And now someone from that documentary is “gaming the system” to punish Power."

Another one side article at: TeachDirt.com

A  bit about Myles Power:

Hello and welcome to mylespower.co.uk. For those of you who are just tuning in, my name is Myles Power (aka powerm1985) from YouTube. My time here on the internet has been spent sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest and angry rants at pseudoscience opponents.

I am originally from a small town in the North East of England called Middlesbrough. I studied chemistry specialising in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester and Toronto. I later moved more towards bio-chemistry and began synthesising various nucleic acid analogues for non-enzymatic transcription and the controlling of gene expression using a mutant riboswitch.  I have over 6 years of experience working in a research lab and am currently working in industry.

Glaxo Says It Will Stop Paying Doctors to Promote Drugs

By 


NYTIMES
The British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline will no longer pay doctors to promote its products and will stop tying compensation of sales representatives to the number of prescriptions doctors write, its chief executive said Monday, effectively ending two common industry practices that critics have long assailed as troublesome conflicts of interest

The announcement appears to be a first for a major drug company — although others may be considering similar moves — and it comes at a particularly sensitive time for Glaxo. It is the subject of a bribery investigation in China, where authorities contend the company funneled illegal payments to doctors and government officials in an effort to lift drug sales.

God intervened in HIV cure of baby, Hannah Gay believes. Pediatrician Hannah Gay says "And it was God that cured the baby and I just happened to be standing close by at the time."

JACKSON, Miss. (BP) -- The continued good health of a Mississippi baby born with HIV causes Hannah
Gay, the HIV specialist who treats the child, to speak of divine intervention.

The baby remains in remission more than 18 months after her last anti-viral treatment. "Hopefully we'll be able to find out what it was about this case that was different from all the others that we've ever seen and be able to replicate that for other babies in the future."

The 3-year-old's continued lack of any replication of the virus indicates the first documented case of HIV remission in a child, The New England Journal of Medicine reported Oct. 23, fostering renewed hope that the child is permanently cured.

"The big question, of course is, 'Is this child cured of HIV infection?'" the Journal article stated. "The best answer at this moment is a definitive 'maybe.'"

Greece Reinstates Forced HIV Testing -WTH?


Greece's health minister has reinstated a draconian measure that allows mandatory HIV testing, detention, and even
eviction.

BY DAVID ARTAVIA



Health minister Adonis Georgladis has reinstated Public Health Decree 39A, a 2012 measure that allows police to detain people suspected of being HIV positive and force them to be tested, according the Greek news outlet ENET. The measure also urges landlords to evict tenants who are HIV-positive (as a public health threat).

HIV Cure Has Long Way to Go Before the Clinic


KUALA LUMPUR -- The science of an HIV cure is in its infancy but scattered cases of remission -- so-called
"functional" cures -- give hope that it is possible, experts said here.
But if the tempo of development is similar to that of anti-HIV drugs in the late 1980s and early 1990s, a useful strategy is still some years away, according to Steven Deeks, MD, of the University of California San Francisco.
"I think we're in 1987," Deeks told MedPage Today -- a period when no drugs were yet available and researchers were just learning such basic things as how to measure HIV in blood and what viral targets for drugs existed.

Prosecuting HIV: take the Test- and Risk Arrest?



Imagine meeting someone online, having a nice chat, and then deciding to hook up. You have HIV, but you’re adherent to your meds and have had an undetectable viral load for years. You and your sexual partner use a condom. Sometime later, the partner learns you have HIV and presses charges against you for failing to disclose your HIV status prior to sex.
Your life is suddenly turned upside down, with your name and picture splashed across the media. You are called an “AIDS Monster.” You and your family and friends feel humiliated and embarrassed. Your employment, housing, and relationships may be put in jeopardy and you need to find tens of thousands of dollars for legal fees for the impending prosecution.
If convicted, you face decades in prison, lifetime registration as a sex offender, and other restrictions; if acquitted, your life is still never the same, because you will always be known as the “AIDS Monster.”

Think about that for a moment: Consenting adults. No intent to harm. Undetectable viral load. A condom was used. No HIV transmission. Twenty-five years in prison. This isn’t hypothetical; it is exactly what happened in a recent case in Iowa. In fact, as of July 2009 Iowa had convicted nearly 1% of all Iowans with HIV under their HIV-specific criminal statute.
There have been hundreds of prosecutions for HIV crimes in the U.S., all over the country. As of today, 36 states and territories have HIV-specific statutes, but a targeted law isn’t required to prosecute an HIV crime. These prosecutions usually have little bearing on the actual level of risk of HIV transmission, ignoring factors like whether a condom was used or the viral load of the person with HIV. more below


Elizabeth Ely reply:

Only reason Strub focusing on Iowa is Nick Rhoades' residency there. Rhoades is the only defendant assisted by the AIDS activist organizations -- and they're botching the job by avoiding the scientific questions. He's probably going to prison. Meanwhile, also in Iowa, Tom Call (http://www.omsj.org/cases/2010... escaped this kangaroo court with the help of a California private investigation agency, OMSJ. See its HIV Innocence Group atwww.omsj.org/innocence-group.
Forget about "undetectable viral load" as an excuse for having sex. It's a load of hooey, and you don't need a medical license to have sex. As has been acknowledged in numerous court cases, there's no evidence that the person is even infected with a deadly virus; all they need is an expert witness to testify to that effect, not repeal of the law.

Young black gay men who hide sexuality may be behind Brooklyn's HIV epidemic, doctors say


'We are seeing more young men,' says AIDS doctor who has treated boys as young as 14.



A new generation of young Brooklyn black males, many hiding their sexual identity, is worrying doctors who say they are fueling the borough’s HIV epidemic.
HIV cases among men under 30 who sleep with men rose from 232 in 2001 to 491 in 2011. 
“We are seeing more young men,” said Dr. Yusef Afacan, director of the AIDS Center Program at Woodull Medical Center in East Williamsburg. Afacan said he has even treated boys as young as 14 who contracted HIV after sleeping with another male.


“We never saw that a decade ago,” Afacan said. “Young gay men are not using protection.”
Men who have sex with men, or MSMs, include males who identify as gay and also those who hide their sexual preferences for other men.
Doctors believe these men are infecting their black female partners, who made up 79% of all new HIV cases among Brooklyn women in 2011 .
Hoping to stem the disturbing trend, advocates are zeroing in on central Brooklyn neighborhoods, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Williamsburg, Bushwick and East Flatbush, which are home to the city’s largest group of those living with the disease.
More than 15,000 reside in central Brooklyn, where about 3,600 identify as MSMs. Those 15,000 make up 10% of the citywide HIV/AIDS cases.
The Brooklyn AIDS Task Force opened a small store-front office called Brooklyn Men Konnect on Utica Ave. in Crown Heights, which reputedly has some strong anti-gay attitudes.
Workers troll gay dating sites posing as singles who give graphic intimate advice and push the message of practicing safe hookups.
“It’s too much casual sex. People don’t care. They are not wrapping it up,” said Steven Holmes, 23, a Konnect volunteer who was born with HIV after getting it from his drug-addicted mother. “They aren’t using condoms. They are being reckless.”
“Our lifestyle is taboo,” said a 22-year-old Bed-Stuy man who contracted HIV at 17. He had been struggling with his sexuality and didn't ask his partner to use a condom. “The first time I got a STD,  it was HIV.”
Doctors are complaining that Brooklyn's federal aid for young HIV/AIDS patients has dropped from $2 million a year to $350,000.
“Brooklyn is getting screwed,” said Dr. Jeffrey Birnbaum, head of the SUNY Downstate’s Family, Adolescent and Children's Experience program, which had to let go 26 staffers across the county, including three doctors, because of the cuts.
“These issues need to be dealt with.”

FEAR Over One Man's Death in West Hollywood of Meningitis

FEAR, 1st off who knew that John Duran was a Dr: Read up. (Mayo Clinic on Meningitis)  Before you get more drugs put into your system: FEAR! 
One man died and we run screaming the sky is falling. 
Just like everyone that is DEAD from ACT -UP demanding AZT. 
How about a little bit of history of this man health, etc before we create More FEAR

UPDATE: Great article in the Huffington Post by 

James Peron:

Fear and Misinformation: Meningitis and the LGBT Community


AIDS Healthcare Foundation to offer free
meningitis vaccines starting Monday 

Beginning Monday, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation will offer meningitis vaccines at three Los Angeles-area locations after the death of a West Hollywood attorney who had recently been exposed to the disease.
Brent Shaad, 33, died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Saturday evening after his family gave permission to remove him from life support.
Shaad had appeared healthy less than a week ago, according to West Hollywood Councilman John Duran.
On Monday, he began feeling ill, according to an AP report. He went to an emergency room for care on Wednesday, but his condition deteriorated rapidly. He slipped into a coma on Thursday, and doctors declared him brain dead Friday.
Shaad had attended the White Party in Palm Springs the weekend of March 30th and 31st and was a member of the Equinox gym in West Hollywood, and people who may have had contact with him should consider being checked, said Duran.
The free meningitis vaccines are available from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at AHF pharmacies on Santa Monica and Sunset boulevards and the AHF Hollywood Men's Wellness Center on Vermont Avenue, said AIDS Healthcare Foundation president Michael Weinstein.
“While many people, including many gay men, may not have had an exposure or consider themselves at risk, we know that there is a tremendous amount of anxiety out there in the community,” said Weinstein at a news conference Sunday. “We feel that at a minimum, we should offer the vaccine to minimize that anxiety.”
The bacteria that causes meningitis is not as contagious as the common cold, but experts say it can be spread through coughing or kissing. People who contract the illness can suffer from fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, confusion and increased sensitivity to light.
Duran said health officials in the New York area have reported seven deaths from bacterial meningitis this year. He said he understands the fears of some who are afraid that an increase in meningitis outbreak would be labeled as a “gay disease,” as AIDS was in the early 1980s.
But he said the early response then was not strong enough, and that's why a greater response now to meningitis is appropriate.
“What we have learned in our experience with the HIV epidemic is sometimes what happens in New York replicates itself in Los Angeles,” said Duran. “We learned some really painful lessons last time.”
There are two different types of meningitis vaccines: a conjugate vaccine that's given to young people and most adults, and a polysaccharide vaccine for adults older than 55.  The foundation will offer the conjugate vaccine. It requires an initial inoculation, followed by a booster eight weeks later, said Dr. Parveen Kaur, a physician working with the foundation's healthcare centers.
The incubation period for bacterial meningitis is two to seven days, while the vaccine requires about 10 days to provoke an immune response, said Kaur.
Weinstein said the shot costs the foundation $105. It has 10,000 doses available. The foundation will ask for donations or insurance, but it will not turn down anyone who who wants a shot, he said.
The L.A. County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) issued a statement after the AIDS Healthcare Foundation announced its vaccination plans.
In the statement, LACDPH said it had been notified on April 9 of a patient with meningococcal meningitis, and that it has begun an investigation that includes identifying contacts with that person.
At this point in the investigation, Public Health has not identified any other cases of meningococcal meningitis associated with this patient, nor identified any linkage between this patient and outbreaks that have been reported in other areas of the country.

Public Health is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to identify the specific strain of the disease from this patient. The specific strain is expected to be identified in the public health laboratory by the end of next week.

The CDC, CDPH and LACDPH do not recommend a vaccination campaign in response to this one single patient with meningococcal meningitis in Los Angeles. Routine vaccination is recommended for children and teens.  Adult vaccination is recommended for persons with specific medical conditions, laboratory workers exposed to the meningococcal bacteria, and travelers to regions of the world with high rates of meningococcal disease.
