Diseases Caused By Retrovirus
No, but its still...: ...Deadly. Influenza is still a leading killer, inspite of the existence of a vaccine. It is not part of the family of viruses known as retroviruses, which tend to incorporate themselves into the genome of the host cell. Get your flu-shopt every year and wash your hands regularly during the flu-season.
Both: HIV tends to lyse T-cells, just reproduce from macrophages. It's a complicated business. Why do you ask?
They don't penetrate: DNA viruses don't have the capability of entering the cell membrane. As such when one sees DaNA on tumor membrane it is from mutated mitochondrial DNA. The RNA viruses penetrate the cell and elaborate reverese transcriptase to allow transfection of the nuclear DNA. This enzyme only occurs with the retroviruses.

Don't ask yet: It was a mistake to give you this partial information, so it is likely that the information itself is mistaken. Don't pursue this until you are able to get an accurate answer from the physician; if it is serious, he/she will probably schedule a face-to-face meeting.
Mutating&Evolving: It was difficult to treat in eightees when the virus was discovered&there was no drugs to treat but over the years many new drugs and combination of drugs have been discovered&it has become easier to treat Yes it is difficult to treat because retro virus is constantly mutating, changing and basically evolving and that's the reason the virus evades the drugsThats why it is difficult to make Vaccine

Why are human endogenous retroviruses (herv's) "activated" in some people, but not in others, when exposed to exogenous viruses? Genetic mutations?
HERV's evolutionary: Endogenous retroviruses have made us evolve. They make up 8% of our dna genome. These aren't of the same class as HIV (lentivirus) or htlv (deltaretrovirus). Few are active & only w/growth & infection. Co-infection w/hiv can turn on herv replication wh/allows our immune system ability recognize & kill HIV viruses w/herv presenting-hiv infected cells leading to new therapies for HIV (vaccines!).See 2 more doctor answers
Doesn't matter: I don't know, but it really doesn't matter. There are lots of things that kill hiv, such as soap and water. Killing HIV isn't the answer. The answer is to stop HIV from replicating and to be able to eliminate latent infection, which olive leaf extract won't do.See 1 more doctor answer
Here are...: Thus far, what we've known is as follows: The "scar formation" - Peyronie's plaque - interferes the proper shut-off of venous flow to maintain and sustain the high blood pressure inside corpora cavernosa as penile arteries inflow for erection. Besides, at age goes, many affected men may have some dysfunction of local vessels and nerves for regulating erection so ED ensues. More? Ask Doc timely.See 1 more doctor answer
Which disorders cause a 7 years old boy (having good grades) to sit alone in school despite he's social in family? P.S:he visits an orthophonist weekly
Few ways.: Crohn's is an inflammatory disease that releases inflammtory mediators into the blood stream. There may be some small component of edema from that. Secondly it is also associated with an arthritis that can cause local joint edema and an increase in distal lymphatic pressure. Thirdly there may be protein / malabsorption losses which can increase edema.See 1 more doctor answer
Other infections: Athletes foot, a fungal infection, can cause cracks and fissures in the skin, which can serve as an entry point for a bacterial skin infection leading to cellulitis. Additionally, the fungal infection from athletes foot can also lead to a fungal infection of the toenails.See 1 more doctor answer
