HIV Advocates News: HIV/Aids detection is now possible with a simple scan

May 31, 2016

 

HIV Advocates is an awareness program aimed at sharing the recent developments in HIV diagnosis and cure. HIV is a very difficult virus to treat – it undergoes rapid mutations and transfers to other cells of the body. Any drug removes the virus from the blood, but not from the body. The virus becomes dormant, and can become active after a period of time. The activation is due to picked up genetic mutations, making it resistant to previously used drug regimens. The key to permanent cure of HIV is isolating HIV strains and then develop drugs targeting the specific strain.

A team of scientists from Emroy University and Imperial College London have collaborated on a research aimed at diagnosing HIV by a simple scan. The idea originated from antibodies which could attach themselves to the HIV strain in monkeys, SIV. Radioactive antibodies were injected in the monkeys, and a subsequent PET Scan revealed the presence of viral gp120 protein across the tissues of monkeys – excluding the brain. They are working around to get the antibodies to also enter the brain and show viral reservoirs. Further development includes isolating viral reservoirs in specific cells in the body. Research is also being undertaken to make antibodies against viral protein gp120, as it would prevent HIV strains from picking up further mutations, making the treatment This scan can make the diagnosis and elimination of HIV much easier than methods used before.

 

HIV Advocates encourages volunteers who can effectively use social media to give a ray of hope to the people infected with HIV – and let them know they are not alone.

Flodins Hong Kong Omega-3 Pork Belly Cooking Tips From HKScan

May 11, 2016

 

Pork belly has a reputation around the world as one of the tastiest cuts of meat that comes from a pig. From Asia to Europe and the Americas, nearly every culture eats pork belly in some capacity because it is delicious and plentiful. In China it is often braised, in South America they fry it and make a dish called chicharrón and in the United States cured pork belly, or bacon, is used in hundreds of recipes. HKScan’s Flodins omega-3 pork belly is perfect for use in all your favorite ethnic dishes, and we even have some special cooking tips for you!

1

First of all, it’s called pork belly because it is meat that is cut from the belly and side of a pig, right below the ribs. This meat tends to be rich and fatty with plenty of marbling that helps it stay moist and tender throughout the cooking process. Pork Belly can be roasted, chopped and fried, barbequed whole, cooked slow, or crisped up on the grill. You choose how to prepare your pork belly, but if you can’t decide, check out this serving suggestion from HKScan:

 

Italian Omega-3 Pork Belly Porchetta

 

  • Butterfly a pork belly so that it is a long and thin slab.
  • Lay meat side up and season with salt and pepper and fresh herbs
  • Chop dried fruits, bacon, garlic, and ginger and spread the mixture on the pork belly
  • Roll up the pork, tie with string, and score the skin with a knife
  • Roast at 275 degrees C until skin is golden brown
  • Remove and pour 2 cups of apple juice over the roast and then replace in a 125 degree oven for 2.5 to 3 more hours
  • Slice and serve as part of an Italian feast!

 

Maybe the only downside to pork belly is the high fat content. This can discourage some people from enjoying pork belly, but omega-3 pork from HKScan is not like other pork bellies because omega-3 pork belly is rich in healthy, unsaturated fats that are good for you. Enjoy your favorite omega-3 pork belly recipes without any feelings of guilt!
