    NYC Health Officials Find New, Virulent HIV Strain (Update7)

    Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- New York City doctors have discovered a man with a previously unseen strain of HIV that is resistant to three of the four types of anti-viral drugs that combat the disease, and progresses from infection to full-blown AIDS in two or three months, the health department said.

    ``We've identified this strain of HIV that is difficult or impossible to treat and which appears to progress rapidly to AIDS,'' said New York City Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden. ``We have not seen a case like this before. It holds the potential for a very serious public health problem.''

    The case was diagnosed in a New Yorker in his mid-40s who reported multiple male sex partners and unprotected anal sex -- often while using the drug crystal methamphetamine.

    ``It is likely there are others infected with this strain and this individual has infected others,'' Frieden said. The case is ``extremely concerning and a wake-up call,'' he said.

    Antonio Urbina, medical director of HIV education and training at St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center, site of one of Manhattan's largest AIDS clinics, said the patient's use of crystal methamphetamine shows that the drug ``continues to play a significant role in facilitating the transmission of HIV.'' The drug reduces peoples' inhibitions and their likelihood of using condoms or other forms of safe sex, he said.

    `Alarming'

    While drug resistance is increasingly common among patients who have been treated for HIV, cases of three-class antiretroviral-resistant HIV -- or 3-DCR HIV -- in newly diagnosed, previously untreated patients are extremely rare, and the combination of this pattern of drug resistance and rapid progression to AIDS may not have been seen previously, the health department said in a news release.

    Just got done reading this article, and some of the posts to go along with it. I just loved the one poster, claiming that if gay marriage would be allowed, this wouldn't have happened. I don't get how marriage would even begin to stop this at all. You still have 2 gays having sex and possibly doing the drugs along with it, and since when has marriage stopped some from having relations outside the marriage. Not to mention, a whole bunch are already infected anyway.

    Thinking about this since i posted the last post, its interesting. there is even a stronger reason to remain chaste now. Sounds like this strain could have people dead within a year. so its going to be alot more dangerous.

    Not surprisingly there are alot of nutjobs already trying to say the President created this straing to get the homosexual population. Funny, they say they believe in evolution and then evolution happens and they blame it on the President. I dont think he has that much power.

    Sadly enough this new strain could be alot more dangerous to the gay community. if they arent careful it could eliminate them completely. Course that may be why the conspiracy theorists are going nuts. they realize the threat but dont want to actually believe that their lifestyle is whats screwing them over. (No pun intended)

    Just refrain from sex before marriage and only sleep with your wife afterwards. And stay away from drugs and you will never have to worry about this.

    Pray it doesn't jump over into the heterosexual population like it has in Asia and Africa, if it does, the death toll will be in the millions.

    That is the same argument that some used regarding priests and pedophilia. "If only the Church would allow priests to get married, this wouldn't happen" --- Baloney. It would happen just the same.

    Anyway, some gays have stated that they would have "open" marriages, where they would be married and have sex with others. Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

    People don't engage in promiscuous sex or pedophilia because they can't get married, in fact some people are married and engage in both or either one.

    then they say they want equal rights...this line is BULLSHIT.

    a straight man has no more a right to marry another MAN (straight or gay) as any gay man. same goes for women. homos have equal rights. if they want to marry someone, they can, as long as it's someone of the opposite sex.

    I think this strain likely will. it will jump to anyone who isnt being chaste or doing drugs more than likely. same as the previous strain. people need to start being responsible for their actions.

    Of course considering how fast this strain works it might end up killing all the people who get it before it has a chance to get wide spread.
