New, Aggressive HIV Strain Causes AIDS Faster

Global Post, November 28, 2013

A new and more aggressive strain of HIV discovered in West Africa causes significantly faster progression to AIDS, researchers at Sweden’s Lund University said Thursday.

The new strain of the virus that causes AIDS, called A3/02, is a fusion of the two most common HIV strains in Guinea-Bissau. It has so far only been found in West Africa.

“Individuals who are infected with the new recombinant form develop AIDS within five years, and that’s about two to two-and-a-half years faster than one of the parent (strains),” said Angelica Palm, one of the scientists responsible for the study based on a long-term follow-up of HIV-positive people in Guinea-Bissau.

Recombinant virus strains originate when a person is infected by two different strains, whose DNA fuse to create a new form.

“There have been some studies that indicate that whenever there is a so-called recombinant, it seems to be more competent or aggressive than the parental strains,” said Palm of the study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study warns that such recombinants may be spreading fast, especially in regions with high levels of immigration, such as Europe or the United States.

  • I also understand not taking your ARVs faithfully also helps HIV develop resistance to the same existing ARVs.

    So you have two world-famous features of the black African and their diaspora: Insouciance and promiscuity, which is making HIV even worse.

      The worst thing you can do is give anti-viral maintenance drugs to Africans. They smoke the drugs to get high in Africa (how do they even think of these things?) rather than use them for their intended purpose. Unless the drugs are taken faithfully, like all microorganisms, the virus mutates, which is why Africa is a viral stew pot.

    So effing what?? As long as the people getting AIDS are the thirld world, homosexuals, intravenous drug users, prostitutes, and the sexually immoral; then let them play around.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Hey c’mon now, hookers aren’t that bad…

    • Sick of it

      The problem is that homosexuals will bring this new strain here to America, where it will be disseminated to straight people via shared drug paraphernalia and bisexual activity.

      • The problem is not necessarily homosexual, it is the number of “down low” AAs that will stick it in anything.

  • GOD

    The solution for us is simple: Don’t play with the animals.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Until they rape your wife or daughter and infect them with HIV. Sometimes those disease ridden animals come to “play with us” whether we like it or not.

    Now Obama has another excuse to open the floodgates to African immigration–Obamacare can treat the new class of “medical refugees,” who are on the run from the deadly AIDS virus. In the US, 61 percent of those with AIDS have unprotected sex. In Africa, it must be 100 percent. So, as mudsharking and oil drilling go apace, look for a new AIDS crisis spreading to straight white Americans.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Mudsharking and oil drilling kind of sounds like B movies or bad carnival rides from the fifties. Save me jebus save me.

  • Isn’t it nice to know that thanks to our traitorous leaders, that when some new evil strain of HIV is discovered deep in the jungles of West Africa, that you and your kin will inevitably end up standing behind someone with this deadly new strain, in no time at all while queuing to buy groceries in your local supermarket .

    Soon white women are going to be infected with this new and improved pestilence, which on depending who you ask came from Africa, or was engineered by the Agenda 21 club. Soon non-drug using whites are going to be dying of this because of the darkie predilection to induce white females to have sex with them for the purpose of infecting them with HIV. That is of course murder and genocide.

    Bush did it and it’s now revealed, he’s also a Jew.

    A few years ago, the press lauded getting rid of the ‘last barriers’ to ‘prejudice” by lifting immigration restrictions on HIV positive people.

    Many of these hiv positive people continue to have promiscuous sex, or in some cases commit acts of rape. at the very least, they will be massive burdens on social and health services.

    At Ellis Island, any one with a communicable disease was sent back to their own country – the fact that our government would deliberately let people in carrying literally lethal diseases shows we have reached a new high of egalitarian insanity.

    • Rhialto

      If the FedGov wanted to help these people, they could be given medical treatment in their own countries at FedGov expense. It is insanity to import them into the US for treatment.

  • evilsandmich

    To the white, leftie death cult, importing an African with five year aids is the best of all worlds.

    Meanwhile, in Greece, poor people are so desperate they are infecting themselves with HIV so they can get monthly government payments:

    Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes.

    Just another shining example of the ACLU screwing this country up but good. They exemplify my impression of the American leftist as one who wants to commit a murder-suicide. I can regret that some one wants to commit suicide, but I just don’t want him taking me down with him.

  • Pro_Whitey

    And you guys on this website are always talking about how Africans can’t create anything! Well, I bet you’re all a bit red-faced now!

  • MartelC

    hey man who are you to judge?
    – when liberals say that, they mean, of course WE can’t judge..because they are the judges !

  • HIV naturally mutates very easily, and I remember reading some years ago about a strain in New York that progressed to full-blown AIDS in only three months. The patient got himself gang-banged by about half a dozen strangers at a party; this is apparently what passes for responsible sexual behavior among some gays.

    From an epidemiological standpoint, Africa’s huge problem is non-human primates. Blacks can be educated to a limited extent, except when organizations like Boko Haram decide that the polio vaccine is intended to make Muslims sterile, or that using condoms isn’t “natural”, that being faithful to one’s spouse is inconvenient or that a quick cure is just around the corner if one rapes a child. Gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos are beyond any level of education, and pretty much any disease they have is something we can get. Chimps often hunt and eat small monkeys, and since they don’t know how to make fire, they eat them raw. African blacks sometimes hunt and eat monkeys and chimps, often after only smoking them over soggy wood; the operative word in “rainforest” is “rain”, even though they have no idea exactly what that chimp recently ate.

    Southeast Asians and South American Indios eat monkeys as well, but the former stir-fry them and the latter roast them. I would worry very much about viral hemorrhagic fevers, even leaving SIV/HIV aside, so I will never eat another primate.

    My favorite food is raw fish, and I believe cooking it spoils the taste. I am smart enough to be responsible about this, however. I don’t eat freshwater fish or shellfish raw, and I don’t eat apex-predator reef fish like barracudas or moray eels at all, cooked or otherwise.

    A people who eat other primates should not be allowed access to the developed world. We used to call this sort of thing “quarantine”. Apparently this is unfashionable today.

    If God exists, AIDS would be his punishment for gays, blacks, and promiscuity. Apart from the few children who were born with it or people who got it through blood transfusions, etc., the vast majority of people with HIV/AIDS deserve it.

    AIDS is not a communicable disease in the normal sense. Outside of rape, it is almost impossible for a normal person to get it. It inhabits a “biological niche” that should not be present. But even that way of thinking is not sufficient to understand the issue. The abnormal, anti-life behaviors involved literally create new diseases. Organisms of all types, higher level down to pseudo-life (viruses and the like are not functional living organism of their own) which normally could not cause disease, are invited to, by these behaviors.

    The populations involved…gays, drug users, blacks, criminals, prostitutes, for decades before AIDS showed up, suffered from numerous strange diseases before AIDS showed up. Our methods of medicine were only partially effective in treating these things as they rely on the behaviors of, oh I don’t know, caring about oneself and personal responsibility to get better. For example. If you get a skin infection and I treat it with antibiotics, and you bathe regularly, it will usually heal. But if, instead, a person wipes dog feces in the wound, every day because they are psychotic (or live in africa), then, eventually, no matter how many anti-biotics taken, it will turn septic and kill the patient. It’s the same thing with gays, drug users, blacks, criminals, prostitutes etc. The development of a “disease” that was incurable and a long, slow, gruesome death was inevitable.

    So medicine advanced a bit and came up with a stop gap measure to prevent the long, slow, gruesome death, if only lots and lots of money were spent. So what? SuperAIDS is inevitable. Superduper instant killing AIDS is INEVITABLE. HIV is NOT the cause of the disease. HIV is a WEAK, non-organism that cannot express in a living thing unless that living thing is exposed to extremes in unreasonable behavior. It certainly cannot pass from one patient to another without bizarre, extreme behavior.

    Were such behavior to stop, the disease would vanish.

      Wrong HIV is anything but a “weak non-organism” that literally splices itself into a person’s DNA. It is a deadly form of acquired blood cancer, and at the same time it also attacks the brain. It has some 9,000 base pairs in it’ genetic code, that means 9,000 to the fourth power possible variations. Almost certainly there is the potential for it to become extremely communicable and still retain it’s extreme lethality. It could also mutate so it acts far more swiftly. The more the immune system fights HIV, the stronger it gets because it invades the T-cells.

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    Hey, letting non-violent white offenders get raped by an HIV+ “lifer” bull negro while behind bars is just their idea of justice. Leftism at its finest.
