[NIH] Toddler Functionally Cured of HIV - Page 5

post #41 of 44
There is some evidence in regimented fasting working in conjunction with chemo.

There are only occasional anecdotes of starvation alone working...not quite what I would call sufficient evidence, unless I had exhausted every other option and was sure to die.

see I just dont know if I would do the chemo thing at all. Its almost guaranteed to F you up, at least people I know who have been subjected to that poison sometimes wish that they just let it go and let nature take its course.

Cant say I disagree as there must be a certain point where your quality of life trumps the length of life.

However, as an overall fan of Food in general, I may just not have the willpower depending on my age. If I were to get diagnosed tomorrow, Id say I would let the doctors do anything they thought would help, but if it were 30 years from now? Id probably try the starvation dealio and otherwise let nature do its thing.


On topic - I am really keeping my fingers crossed that there is a true cure someday. Really does seem liek we've gone a long way since the 90's where it was certain death.

I doubt they'll ever figure this one out either, unless the child really was cured by the treatments after birth.
Actually we do know how. Every virus needs to replicate at a certain rate to maintain infection. The immune system is constantly attacking a virus (even HIV) and retroviral drugs also work to reduce viral replication through a variety of means. The child's immune system combined with the drug cocktail reduced the HIV levels to below the threshold where the virus could maintain infection for long enough that the immune system defeated the infection.

This is cause to look at the levels of retroviral drugs given (this child was given an abnormally large dose for her body weight and age) as well as the nature of the immune system of a child within the first year of life (when most of her treatment was administered).

We know how. Now we have to see if it works on other children or if this child had an immune system abnormality and also work on replicating similar conditions in humans over 1-2 years of age. How it worked is the easy part. We don't know why it worked.
