In 2017, an estimated 36.7 million people were living with HIV with a global HIV prevalence of 0.8% among adults.1 In the Philippines alone, an estimated 56,000 people were infected with HIV.2 Pain has always been an important part of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease and its experience for patients. Many of those infected suffer from peripheral neuropathy. Chronic pain remains a significant problem in persons living with human immunodeficiency virus and it is associated with psychological and functional morbidity, even in the absence of advanced disease complications. Chronic pain with HIV patients has a current prevalence ranging from 39% to 85% depending on the study.3 Pain is the second most common symptom in ambulatory settings where HIV disease is treated. Nearly half of that pain is neuropathic due to injury to the central or peripheral nervous systems from direct viral infection, infection with secondary pathogens, or side effects of
The same innoculum was used as in the tissue culture series. The innoculated eggs were incubated at 35 degree and transfers made every 5 to 9 days. The tissue material is then drained and pooled, then titration tests are taken. Examples of rickettsial diseases & methods of diagnosis: 1) Rickettsia of the Spotted Fever and Typhus groups: The rickettsial diseases are arranged in many categories from which are the spotted fever and typhus fever groups. Clinical symptoms: a) Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever: It is considered to be among the most severe of human infectious diseases, with a mortality rate of 20 to 25% unless it is treated with a suitable antibiotic.
