New Hope for Those with HIV in Los Angeles

The LA Times had a great article recently about new hope for those with HIV in Los Angeles.  There have been new developments in research hoping to identify where HIV transmitters hide in the body, and how to kill them.  The article goes on to describe a regimen that doesn’t require daily drugs.  The vaccine that helps to prevent the transmission of HIV also helps to protect those who have stopped taking their anti-retroviral medications.

In a story written by Melissa Healy and published June 22 in the LA Times, Ms. Healy sites a letter published in the journal “Nature” noting “scientists report that in 13 HIV-infected people who discontinued their cocktail of retroviral drugs, infusions of a neutralizing antibody called 3BNC117 staved off the expected rebound of the human immunodeficiency virus for more than a month.

This is tremendous news for those battling HIV.  Usually, if someone stops taking their HIV medications, the virus regains its full strength within a few weeks.  Scientists in the study noted “all of the 13 participants saw their viral loads suppressed to very low levels for at least five weeks after their last treatment — delaying resurgence of the virus twice as long as normal.

My name is Rivers Morrell, and I have more than 40 years of experience helping those in LA and Orange and Riverside Counties in civil legal actions to prevail and hold those responsible financially accountable for their actions.  If you have received HIV from an intimate partner of financial substance without advance warning, I will help you to hold them responsible and financially accountable.

There is new hope for those with HIV in Los Angeles and I am hopeful for the future.  When someone is given an STD without warning it can have a substantial impact on their life.  It is illegal in California to knowingly transmit an STD to an intimate partner without warning them in advance of contact that you are a carrier of an STD.  I invite you to read the words of my STD clients, and know that there is hope and a path forward.  I invite you to contact me for a free, private and confidential consultation at (949) 305-1400.
