|SYDNEY nike air max plus tn ultra scontate , July 11 (Xinhua) -- Those few and fortunate who never fall ill with AIDS despite being infected with the HIV virus could be the key to developing an HIVAIDS vaccine or even a cure, according to French Nobel prize-winning virologist Fran oise Barré-Sinoussi.
Professor Barré-Sinoussi, from the Institut Pasteur in Paris, is a keynote speaker at the Global challenges in infectious diseases symposium, hosted by UNSW's Kirby Institute next week.
Australia has been at the forefront of the global HIV challenge nike air max tn plus scontate , with a long track-record of successful public campaigns, yet the rate of newly diagnosed HIV infections in Australia leapt 10 per cent between 2012-13, the largest increase in over 20 years of records.
But Australia has also forged a globaly-recognised scientific path to treatments that have attracted the world's top authorities in HIVAIDS treatments.
Earlier this year Australian researchers claimed another breakthrough in tackling HIV and hepatitis C, with a new DNA vaccine which protects against the viruses and could possibly provide a cure in five years.
Lead researcher, Adelaide University's Professor Eric Gowans said human trials could start next year.
"DNA vaccines in general have enormous potential nike air max tn scontate , but haven't worked very well in large animals and in patients," he said.
As of December 2013 an estimated 24,731 people were living with an HIV diagnosis in Australia.
An infectious diseases expert from Monash University, Associate Professor Edwina Wright said Australia's focus on early treatment played an important role in putting the brakes on HIV by dropping the carrier's 'viral load.'
"As soon as you drop your viral load to an undetectable level in the blood, within three to six months of treatment .. your chance of transmission to your sexual partner is reduced by 96 percent nike tn nere ," Wright said.
From the start of the original global epidemic until the end of 2013, there have been 31,645 diagnoses of HIV and 10,796 diagnoses of AIDS. Australia has recorded 6,843 AIDS deaths nike tn squalo bianche , with treatment and management improving almost weekly.
HIV transmission in Australia has occurred primarily through sexual contact between men. Around two-thirds of people newly diagnosed with HIV in 2013 were among men who have sex with men; a quarter were exposed through heterosexual contact; with three per cent due to injecting drug use; and a further 3 per cent were men with a history of both injecting drug use and sex with other men.
Professor Barré-Sinoussi was the joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008 for her co-discovery of HIV as the cause of AIDS. She will present a symposium paper titled "How host response to HIV can make the difference."
Barré-Sinoussi is convinced a functional cure for HIVAIDS is possible and those people who display innate immunity to HIV infection and resistance to the onset of AIDS may hold one of the keys.
Her lab is currently studying examples of natural immunity in human and non-human primates to understand "the complex interplay between the HIV virus and the key players of innate and adaptive immunity".
"People infected with HIV who naturally control the virus' replication and consequently are protected against AIDS represent the first model in humans," she will tell the symposium.
Another group, comprising 14 patients, has been able to maintain a durable control of HIV replication after being treated with antiretroviral drugs for a limited time very early after the infection.
Non-human primates like the African Green Monkeys are also of interest to Barr-Sinoussi. "These monkeys, highly infected in nature by SIV (the simian form of HIV) are also protected against AIDS nike tn scontate ," she says.
The symposium follows the launch of the Kirby Institute's new facilities on UNSW's Kensington campus by Minister for Health and Medical Research Jillian Skinner on Wednesday July 16.
The Kirby Institute at UNSW, Australia's premier research institute, conducts research into HIVAIDS, viral hepatitis, blood- borne viruses nike tn squalo scontate , and sexually transmissible infections in Australia.
According to a university spokeswoman, UNSW will confer on Professor Barr-Sinoussi an Honorary Doctorate of Medicine, ' honoris causa' at the event.
Named for the former High Court judge Michael Kirby AC, the Kirby Institute is led by Scientia Professor David Cooper, who was the first to recognize and describe the initial response of the body to HIV infection and AIDS nike air max tn ingrosso , and has since been involved in the development of every existing anti-retroviral drug.
HELSINKI, June 8 (Xinhua) -- A fast schedule to reach agreement on lowering the production costs in Finland looked less likely late Monday, as influential Finnish trade unions demanded talks about a five-percent cut in the production costs should be postponed for a year.
The newly installed center-right government had insisted that employees and employers should commit themselves to such a deal by the end of August. The Central Organization of blue collar workers, SAK, demanded on Monday that talks should begin in the autumn of 2016 scarpe air max plus scontate , but expert level preparations could begin now.
While no explicit response was given by the government to the demand of delay, Prime Minister Juha Sipila agreed earlier on Monday that a parallel plan to cut back unemployment benefits would be delayed until 2017.
Sipila admitted that the previous plan aiming at 2016 had been "unrealistic."
The SAK indicated on Monday it could agree to lower the threshold of work payment in return of more employer concessions.
The wording refers to the problem that unemployment benefits often give a better livelihood in Finland today than a salary from a new job. In Finland, an unemployed person can get benefits equal to 500 working days based on the level of earnings of the lost job.
