What do virologists analyze when trying to stop a retrovirus?
Asked by Lue Sitra 1 year ago.

1. They analyze the virus's replication process. This is big because they can see what kind of reverse transcriptase that they're dealing with and they can see if it's a new form of the enzyme that they've never seen before. 2. They look at the binding abilities such as cells that are targeted. If they can identify what particular types of cells the retrovirs is after they could conceiveably determine the effect that the retrovirus could have on the human body. 3. They analyze reproductive rates. This is really important because this can determine how quickly an organism is affected by a retrovirus. If the retrovirus reproduces quickly then they know that it'll run through the organism very quickly. Another important thing here is just exactly what patterns the retrovirus uses to primary make more virus particles such as how often the lytic cycle is used compared to the lysogenic cycle. More commonly the lysogenic cycle is used but it is possible for retroviruses to use the lytic cycle as a means of reproduction. 4. They look at transference time frames. They look at how long the virus can make new particles and over what period of time the virus can affect other organisms. Some retroviruses have a pretty specific time with when they can infect other organims but retroviruses like HIV can be transmitted indefinitely throughout a person's lifespan. 5. They look at the genome of the retrovirus. Decoding the RNA used in retroviruses can be very tricky but it can be done and from those analyses scientists can see exactly how complex the genome of the virus is and therefore if it potentially has weak spots. I know that it's not an example of a retrovirus but take ebola for example: ebola only has 7 genes in its entire genome so it only has exactly what it needs and therefore because it's so space efficient it can create a lot of new virus particles when it reproduces in a host cell so that's why combatting it is so hard to do; it just doesn't have weak spots because it has only the things that it needs to survive and keep on reproducing. Answered by Carolann Hadson 1 year ago.

A common trend in viral pathology seems to be with analyzing a virus' mode of action. In other words, examine the virus' receptor proteins (with which viruses are able to locate and attach to their target cells) and formulate a chemical that will prevent viruses from attaching onto cells and/or help the immune system destroy these viruses. Such is the case with what is being done with HIV. Answered by Joie Janning 1 year ago.

Ive had Crohns disease for about 7 years now and have been in remission for about 5 years and if I stick to my diet I live pretty much symptom free, except for always being fatigued! I have been to my dr a few times and have ruled out all the common fatigue symptoms like thyroid and my b levels, but im thinking that it may very well be my crohns disease. Does anyone else who has been diagnosed with crohns experience fatigue all the time? Answered by Ellen Gauwain 1 year ago.

Hi Adnie Here is some info and remedies to help with your condition. Causes Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress. Note: Pharmaceutical Drugs: The following drugs can all cause and exacerbate various gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease: Accutane, Alka-Seltzer Antacid and Alka-Seltzer Pain Reliever, Anturane, Genuine Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Plus Aspirin, Bayer Regular Strength Enteric Aspirin, Bufferin Analgesic Tablets and Caplets, Ceptaz, Clinoril, Cuprimine, Ecotrin Enteric Coated Aspirin, Feldene, Ilosone, Lamprene, Leukine for IV Infusion, Lopid, Marplan, Meclomen, Novantrone, Paraplatin, Piroxicam, Prokine I.V. Infusion, Retrovir, Rynatuss, Supprelin Injection, Suprax, Ticlid, Tolectin, Toradol IM Injection, Trecator-SC, Trilisate, and Voltaren. Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease 1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens. 2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish. 3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day. Gallon a day if you can. 4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process. 5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended. 6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises. 7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies. 8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen. 9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice. 10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning. 11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work. Herbal Medicine: Useful herbs include agrimony, bayberry, chamomile,geranium, goldenseal, lemon balm, marshmallow root, peppermint, plaintain, wild yam, and valerian. The traditional herbal remedy Robert's Formula is also recommended, consisting of comfrey, Echinacea, geranium, goldenseal, marshmallow root, poke root, slippery elm, and wild indigo.

Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question directly because I do not suffer from Crohn's Disease. But my sister (whom I'm very close with) does. I do believe she experiences fatigue often, but she also has other illnesses that compound the pain of Crohn's Disease. Answered by Noah Alleman 1 year ago.

I think I'm a bit late to answer this question but others might find it useful, Crohns causes anemia, i may have spelt that wrong but it means you have no or low iron in your blood meaning you'll feel tired a lot, just take iron supplement tablets and within a few months you'll feel better Answered by Iluminada Stallman 1 year ago.

ok i have crohns disease as well but unfortunately nothing helps mine but yes the fatigue thing i have it really bad im always tired but also if you are on meds for crohns then it can also be those i know mine makes me sleepy all the time... but if you would like to know more then you can email me Answered by Hipolito Pribbenow 1 year ago.

Here is my problem. I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I am having problems getting it under control. I have read everything I can find online about the disease, and have taken every medication prescribed by my doctor, exactly as ordered. I eat constantly, and drink 3 ensures a day. Everything I eat is chosen for its nutritional value. I am still losing weight. I have lost approximately 40 lbs since the beginning of the flare up, and continue to lose between 2-3 lbs per week. I have now found that I have lost an additional 2 1/2 lbs over the past 24 hours. I cannot increase my sugar intake due to hypoglycemia. I am fortunate that I could afford the weight loss, but it is now becoming a concern. Does anyone familiar with this disease have ANY suggestions about how to get the disease under control, or how to stop the weight loss? I figure my caloric intake is about 4000 calories a day, and I cannot possibly eat any additional food. Any suggestions are appreciated. Answered by Alisia Krinov 1 year ago.

Decoding the RNA used in retroviruses can be very tricky but it can be done and from those analyses scientists can see exactly how complex the genome of the virus is and therefore if it potentially has weak spots. I know that it's not an example of a retrovirus but take ebola for example: ebola only has 7 genes in its entire genome so it only has exactly what it needs and therefore because it's so space efficient it can create a lot of new virus particles when it reproduces in a host cell so that's why combatting it is so hard to do; it just doesn't have weak spots because it has only the things that it needs to survive and keep on reproducing.

A common trend in viral pathology seems to be with analyzing a virus' mode of action. In other words, examine the virus' receptor proteins (with which viruses are able to locate and attach to their target cells) and formulate a chemical that will prevent viruses from attaching onto cells and/or help the immune system destroy these viruses. Such is the case with what is being done with HIV. Answered by Eve Boeke 1 year ago.

Ive had Crohns disease for about 7 years now and have been in remission for about 5 years and if I stick to my diet I live pretty much symptom free, except for always being fatigued! I have been to my dr a few times and have ruled out all the common fatigue symptoms like thyroid and my b levels, but im thinking that it may very well be my crohns disease. Does anyone else who has been diagnosed with crohns experience fatigue all the time? Answered by Danita Schapp 1 year ago.

Hi Adnie Here is some info and remedies to help with your condition. Causes Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress. Note: Pharmaceutical Drugs: The following drugs can all cause and exacerbate various gastrointestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease: Accutane, Alka-Seltzer Antacid and Alka-Seltzer Pain Reliever, Anturane, Genuine Bayer Aspirin, Bayer Plus Aspirin, Bayer Regular Strength Enteric Aspirin, Bufferin Analgesic Tablets and Caplets, Ceptaz, Clinoril, Cuprimine, Ecotrin Enteric Coated Aspirin, Feldene, Ilosone, Lamprene, Leukine for IV Infusion, Lopid, Marplan, Meclomen, Novantrone, Paraplatin, Piroxicam, Prokine I.V. Infusion, Retrovir, Rynatuss, Supprelin Injection, Suprax, Ticlid, Tolectin, Toradol IM Injection, Trecator-SC, Trilisate, and Voltaren. Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease 1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens. 2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish. 3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day. Gallon a day if you can. 4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process. 5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended. 6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises. 7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies. 8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen. 9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice. 10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning. 11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work. Herbal Medicine: Useful herbs include agrimony, bayberry, chamomile,geranium, goldenseal, lemon balm, marshmallow root, peppermint, plaintain, wild yam, and valerian. The traditional herbal remedy Robert's Formula is also recommended, consisting of comfrey, Echinacea, geranium, goldenseal, marshmallow root, poke root, slippery elm, and wild indigo.

Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question directly because I do not suffer from Crohn's Disease. But my sister (whom I'm very close with) does. I do believe she experiences fatigue often, but she also has other illnesses that compound the pain of Crohn's Disease. Answered by Coralie Wucherer 1 year ago.

I think I'm a bit late to answer this question but others might find it useful, Crohns causes anemia, i may have spelt that wrong but it means you have no or low iron in your blood meaning you'll feel tired a lot, just take iron supplement tablets and within a few months you'll feel better Answered by Dani Rieke 1 year ago.

ok i have crohns disease as well but unfortunately nothing helps mine but yes the fatigue thing i have it really bad im always tired but also if you are on meds for crohns then it can also be those i know mine makes me sleepy all the time... but if you would like to know more then you can email me Answered by Lyndia Pfluger 1 year ago.

A friend of mine suffers from crohns. Sorry to hear about your stress. I would get the scan and tests done. . .just to be sure all is ok. That is maybe why your doctor wants you to these tests again. My friend has days where she is fine and then she can have her crohns act up. I hope all is well with u and things become less stressful. Stress can't help the crohns either :( Take care :) Answered by Frances Lattanzio 1 year ago.

Here is my problem. I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. I am having problems getting it under control. I have read everything I can find online about the disease, and have taken every medication prescribed by my doctor, exactly as ordered. I eat constantly, and drink 3 ensures a day. Everything I eat is chosen for its nutritional value. I am still losing weight. I have lost approximately 40 lbs since the beginning of the flare up, and continue to lose between 2-3 lbs per week. I have now found that I have lost an additional 2 1/2 lbs over the past 24 hours. I cannot increase my sugar intake due to hypoglycemia. I am fortunate that I could afford the weight loss, but it is now becoming a concern. Does anyone familiar with this disease have ANY suggestions about how to get the disease under control, or how to stop the weight loss? I figure my caloric intake is about 4000 calories a day, and I cannot possibly eat any additional food. Any suggestions are appreciated. Answered by Esther Bejger 1 year ago.
