History[edit]

Have moved this here "According to Dr. Irwin Sherman, a retired biology professor emeritus from University of California, Riverside, a Norwegian sailor, born in 1947, and visited Douala, Camaroon, West Africa in the early 1960's, was infected with AIDS-like symptoms around 1966 and died at age 29 of "dementia and pneumonia" and had developed "lymphadenopathy with recurrent colds". In 1973, blood samples taken from him, his daughter and wife, who also died from opportunistic infection, "tested positive for HIV".[1]."

Not convinced it should be placed before "Mandell, Gerald L.; Bennett, John E.; Dolin, Raphael, eds. (2010). Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases (7th ed.)." or given the equivalent weight. Do any other sources corroborate this? Also "infected with AIDS-like symptoms around 1966" does not make sense. Would be developed AIDs like symptoms.

Semi-protected edit request on 3 October 2016[edit]


Please remove ", and male circumcision" from the sentence: Methods of prevention include safe sex, needle exchange programs, treating those who are infected, and male circumcision.[8]

Because male circumcision is not a method of prevention but of reduction and the presentation of it as a method of prevention in this sentence is potentially fatal misinformation. Even the source (see [8]) informs of 'reduction' rather than 'prevention' which would require a larger risk reduction of 60% (only 1/10th more than a 50-50 chance) : "Medical male circumcision, when safely provided by well-trained health professionals, reduces the risk of heterosexually acquired HIV infection in men by approximately 60%."

Yours faithfully

This encyclopedia presents information that is verifiable from reliable sources, with a neutral point of view. In this case, reliable sources like the WHO emphasize male circumcision as an effective preventive measure. This is not the place to argue this point - reliable sources are our foundation. — soupvector (talk) 18:22, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

cara mencegah dan mengobati HIV AIDS[edit]

HARAPAN BARU BAGI PENDERITA HIV AIDS, sebelum membahas pengobatan herbal apa sih yang bisa membantu penderita HIV AIDS? kita akan sedikit memberikan wawasan dan pembahasan tentang penyakit HIV AIDS yang selama ini dikenal sebagai penyakit yang menakutkan.

Pengertian HIV

Pengertian HIV merupakan singkatan dari ‘Human Immunodeficiency Virus’. HIV adalah suatu virus yang dapat menyebabkan penyakit AIDS.

Pengertian AIDS

Definisi AIDS adalah singkatan dari ‘Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome / Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome’ yang menggambarkan berbagai gejala dan infeksi yang terkait dengan menurunnya sistem kekebalan tubuh.

Jadi, Virus HIV sebagai penyebab AIDS. Tingkat HIV dalam tubuh dan timbulnya berbagai infeksi tertentu merupakan indikator bahwa infeksi HIV telah berkembang menjadi AIDS. Virus ini menyerang manusia dan menyerang sistem kekebalan (imunitas) tubuh, sehingga tubuh menjadi lemah dalam melawan infeksi. Dengan kata lain, kehadiran virus ini dalam tubuh akan menyebabkan defisiensi (kekurangan) sistem imun.

HIV yang berkembang Menjadi AIDS

Pada saat AIDS berkembang, sistem kekebalan tubuh Anda menurun, yang membuat Anda rentan terhadap infeksi penyakit – penyakit ringan. Tanda-tanda dan gejala dari beberapa infeksi ini dapat mencakup:

Batuk-batuk dan bercak di paru, TBC paru. Demam dan diare dalam waktu lebih dari satu bulan. Berat badan menurun drastis yakni lebih dari 10 % dari berat badan awal dalam waktu singkat (satu bulan). Pembengkakan kelenjar getah bening di kiri kanan leher, ketiak dan lipatan paha. Herpes ( penyakit kulit dengan gejala gelembung air dan rasa sakit yang teramat sangat). Penyebab HIV

HIV menghancurkan sel CD4 – jenis tertentu dari sel darah putih yang memainkan peran besar dalam membantu tubuh melawan penyakit Anda. Sistem kekebalan tubuh melemah sebagai sel sehingga Anda dapat terjangkit infeksi HIV selama bertahun-tahun dan akhirnya menjadi AIDS.

Obat herbal HIV AIDS

Kini telah hadir obat herbal alami yang bisa membantu anda dalam mencegah maupun mengatasi penyakit yang menakutkan tersebut. Sebagian besar obat herbal yang digunakan untuk meningkatkan kekebalan tubuh, sebelumnya dikenal dan digunakan untuk pengobatan kanker. Hampir sama cara kerjannya yakni sel-sel yang terinfeksi ini tampak tidak normal bagi sistem kekebalan tubuh kita, sehingga sistem kekebalan tubuh akan melawan infeksi tersebut dengan cara menghancurkan sel-sel yang abnormal. Tanaman herbal yang memiliki sifat antimikroba dapat melindungi terhadap infeksi ini. Dan kandungan di dalamnya harus efektif terhadap berbagai jenis infeksi yang mungkin di alami pasien AIDS. Orang yang hidup dengan HIV harus menggunakan obat herbal anti-mikroba untuk mencegah dan mengobati infeksi terkait AIDS.

Amazon Berries, Amazon Plus dan K-Muricata merupakan produk Terapi obat herbal HIV AIDS, ketiga produk obat herbal ini menjadi harapan anda untuk menyembuhkan HIV dari tubuh anda — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beemoringa (talkcontribs) 11:53, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Secondary sources[edit]

This is needing a secondary source so moved here.

Another group working contemporaneously as the Montagnier and Gallo groups is that of Dr. Jay Levy at the University of California in San Francisco. He independently discovered the AIDS virus in 1983 and named it the AIDS associated retrovirus (ARV).[1] This virus was very different from the virus reported by the Montagnier and Gallo groups. The ARV strains indicated, for the first time, the heterogeneity of HIV isolates and several of these remain classic examples of the AIDS virus found in the United States.[2]

Section on sexual causes of HIV[edit]

This text "A 2016 analysis estimated that there are close to 4.5 million gay and bisexual men in the US" is more epidemiology of HIV in the US rather than about the current sexual causes of HIV. Adding it is also undue weight. Belongs here IMO Epidemiology_of_HIV/AIDS or HIV/AIDS in the United States Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:19, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
