Brazilian man becomes first person to be ‘cured’ of HIV with drugs alone

Brazilian man becomes first person to be 'cured’ of HIV with drugs alone

A 35-year-old Brazilian man who has gone into long-term remission after being diagnosed with an accelerated multi-drug regimen of AIDS drugs for less than a year has boosted expectations for a possible breakthrough on Tuesday July 7.
The man who tested HIV positive in 2012 was treated with an antiretroviral therapy or ART base that was boosted with additional antiretrovirals, plus a drug called nicotinamide (a vitamin B3 form).

His increased care was stopped after 48 weeks, and researchers who reported their results at this week’s virtual International Aids Society conference said that the patient has now been without HIV medication for more than 57 weeks and continues to test negative for HIV antibodies.

Dr Ricardo Diaz of the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, who led the study said he was “trying to wake up the virus” and boost the immune system’s ability to eliminate it once it’s flushed out of hiding.

 

Diaz said;

 

“We can’t search the entire body, but by the best evidence, we do not have infected cells.

“I think it’s very promising. This patient might be cured, but it will take more time to know.”

 

Professor Sharon Lewin, an HIV and infectious diseases expert at the University of Melbourne who was not involved in the research, said the fact that the patient has no antibodies was significant.

 

She said;

 

“When someone is infected with a virus they make antibodies. And antibodies don’t budge, even when you’re on treatment and there’s no detectable viral load. But this showed he had no antibodies which is supportive of him being cured.

“It’s interesting, but it’s hard to know how significant it is when it’s just a single case. I’d also like to know what happened to the other patients.”

In the past five years, after undergoing high-risk stem cell bone marrow transplants to treat cancer, only two people known as “Berlin” and “London” patients seem to have been cured of the disease.

Since the AIDS epidemic started in the 1980s more than 75 million people have been infected. The virus also caused 33 million deaths

Australia's second-largest city, Melbourne heads back into Coronavirus lockdown

Nearly five million Melbourne residents were forced back into another lockdown after Coronavirus cases spiked on Tuesday, July 7, in Australia’s second-largest city.

All in Melbourne will be required to stay home from midnight on Wednesday, July 8, unless they go to work , study, shop for food or attend medical appointments. Restaurants, cafes and bars can only have delivery service, gyms and hair salons are closed, family events are restricted to two persons and the existing school holidays are extended.

Victoria state prime minister Daniel Andrews declared a six-week freeze, saying the virus crisis is over “we can’t pretend.”

After 191 of the 199 new cases recorded nationally on Tuesday were identified by the south-east region, the largest one-day increase since early April, Andrews said there were now too many to track properly, so restrictions were required.

“Those are numbers that are unsustainably high,” he said. “No-one wants to be in this place. I know there will be massive quantities of harm that will be caused because of this.

“We need to be transparent to one another that this is not over,” said Andrews. “And pretending it’s because we just want it to be over isn’t the solution. It’s actually part of the problem. A very big part of the issue.”

The decision was taken hours before it was expected for the first time in a century to close the busy border between Victoria and New South Wales.

Nearly 9,000 cases of COVID-19 and 106 deaths from the virus were reported in Australia.
