A remarkable case study published in August of this year in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine described an HIV patient who after undergoing treatment with a black seed extract experienced a complete recovery, with no detectable HIV virus or antibodies against HIV in their blood serum, both during and long after the therapy ended.
Considerations for serology in patients with HIV: Serologic test results for the majority of patients with HIV and syphilis are consistent with those seen in non-HIV-infected patients with syphilis; however, there have been reports of atypical serologies in patients coinfected with HIV and syphilis as described below: Seroreactivity may be delayed or absent in patients with HIV.
Rare cases have been reported of biopsy-proven secondary syphilis in patients with HIV with negative syphilis serologies [Tikjob et al. Serum nontreponemal reagin levels may decline more slowly after treatment in patients with HIV than in patients without HIV [Rolfs et al.
No correlation has been found between serologic response to therapy and CD4 count [Rolfs et al. Prozone reaction occurs more commonly in patients with HIV [Schofer et al.
Pallidum Direct fluorescent antibody test: A direct fluorescent antibody test can be performed on lesion exudate or tissue specimen. There are no differences in test performance characteristics among patients with and without HIV.
Examination of exudate from an ulcer base or a mucocutaneous lesion under darkfield microscopy can identify the spirochete T. This test is invalid for oral samples and is typically available only in specialized centers; local health department may be consulted for availability.
Spirochetes may be seen in biopsy specimens of suspicious lesions such as palmar macular rash or gummatous lesions.
Polymerase chain reaction PCR: In comparison with swab, the sensitivity of PCR is significantly lower when samples from peripheral blood mononuclear cell, plasma, serum, and whole-blood fractions are used [Grange et al.

A comprehensive reading of the mainstream literature together with analysis of mainstream data demonstrates conclusively that HIV is neither a necessary nor a sufficient cause of AIDS.
The following are chosen from the AETC-NMC collection of case studies and focus on scenarios involving promoting HIV testing.
Case studies that focus on promoting HIV testing address cultural gaps in gender, age, health literacy, trust and other socio-ethnic barriers of patients.
