Men with HIV Have Lower Risk for Prostate Cancer

<p><img class="alignleft" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/a/E/Prostateexam.jpg" alt="null" />A study published earlier this month concluded that the people with HIV have as high as a two-fold increased risk of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/b/2014/05/26/people-with-hi...k-for-melanoma.htm">developing melanoma</a> (a serious type of skin cancer) when compared to the general population, adding to the already heady list of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivtestingprevention/a/Does-Hiv-Increase-The-Risk-For-Cancer.htm">non-AIDS-defining cancers</a> known to disproportionately affect this population.</p> <p>This shouldn't suggest, however, that all cancers are of marked concern to people living with HIV. In fact, researchers from Kaiser Permanente in California have reported this week that HIV-infected men have a 27% <em>lesser</em> risk of developing <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://prostatecancer.about.com/od/whatisprostatecancer/a/whatis.htm">prostate cancer</a> than their non-infected counterparts -- this after taking into account such potential confounders as age, race, diabetes, <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/otherconditions/a/Hiv-And-Smoking-A-Deadly-Intersection.htm">smoking</a>, alcohol and substance use.</p> <p>The data was collected from 17,424 HIV-positive and 182,799 HIV-negative men who had entered into care from 1996 to 2006.</p> <p> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259415.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

People With HIV at Increased Risk for Melanoma

<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/_/E/Melanoma.jpg" alt="null" />It has been well documented that people with long-term HIV infection run a greater risk of developing a number of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivtestingprevention/a/Does-Hiv-Increase-The-Risk-For-Cancer.htm">non-AIDS-defining cancers,</a> among them <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/otherconditions/a/analca.htm">anal cancer</a>, Hodgkin's disease, and liver cancers. Over the course of recent years, researchers have been investigating the causes and incidences of these occurrences -- finding that, in some cancers, the risk is significantly higher, while others have either lower or no statistical difference risk at all.</p> <p>Investigators in the U.K. and Australia have now added <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://dermatology.about.com/cs/melanoma/a/melanoma.htm">melanoma (a serious type  of skin cancer)</a> to the list of high-risk cancers seen in people with HIV. The systematic review and meta-analysis, the results of which were <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0095096">published in this month's <em>PLOS|One</em> journal</a>, has determined that HIV-infected individuals overall have a 26% increased risk for developing this potentially life-threatening cancer, with the risk increasing to over 50% in white-skinned individuals.</p> <p>A total of 21 studies were included in the review, which were conducted between 1999 and 2013 and had a median follow-up time of between two to 10 years.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259411.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

Donald Sterling's Attack of Magic Johnson Highlights Persisting AIDS Stigma

<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/h/D/DonaldSterling.jpg" alt="null" />On the one hand, it seems pointless to toss one's hat into the ring and join the online tirade against L.A. Clipper's owner Donald Sterling. Watching his CNN interview with Anderson Cooper on Monday was simply a sad, sad spectacle, one which could easily dismissed as a misbegotten shot at redemption by an out-of-touch, armchair racist. It was a textbook debacle of almost Shakespearean scale, with every declaration by Sterling that "I am not a racist" sparking the immediate thought, "methinks ye protest too much."</p> <p>That the interview took an unexpected (and protracted) turn to include Magic Johnson's HIV status was another issue altogether. Repeatedly, and almost painfully, Sterling suggested that HIV was a mark of Johnson's shame and personal irresponsibility, asking at one point, "Big Magic Johnson, what has he done? He's got AIDS. Did he do any business? Did he help anybody in South L.A.?"</p> <p>Sterling further humiliated himself by declaring, "(Magic) has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV and is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself."<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259393.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

Rwanda Proves That Universal HIV Treatment Coverage Is Attainable

<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/G/D/Rwanda.jpg" alt="null" />If there were ever any doubts that a country could achieve universal treatment coverage for its HIV-infected population, one need look no further than to the small equatorial country of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://goafrica.about.com/library/bl.mapfacts.rwanda.htm">Rwanda</a>.</p> <p>Known by many for the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://history1900s.about.com/od/rwandangenocide/a/Rwanda-Genocide.htm">1994 genocide</a> that killed as many as one million of its citizens, Rwanda is reported to be the first country in the world to achieve such coverage. Today, 93% of those qualified for treatment under the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines of 2009 are receiving it.  In total, 2.9% of the Rwandan population (or roughly 210,00 people) is HIV-positive, of which more than 50% qualify for therapy.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259366.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

Weighing In On Whether Getting HIV Is "Better" Than Diabetes

<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/3/D/diabetes2_l.jpg" alt="null" />A debate has been raging on social media since the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://health.yahoo.net/articles/diabetes/uk-doctor-says-hed-rather-have-hiv-diabetes">release of an op-ed last week</a> in which Dr. Max Pemberton, a noted U.K.-based physician and author, stated that he'd "rather have HIV than diabetes."</p> <p>While some might argue that the ensuing controversy has been something of a tempest in a teacup, several of our leading HIV/AIDS researchers have thrown themselves head-first into the fray.</p> <p>On the one side, Dr. Kenneth Mayer of Harvard University believed that Pemberton's statement did a disservice to both diseases, particularly since HIV is transmittable disease with its own set of issues, while diabetes is not. Furthermore, Mayer argued that Pemberton, a mental health specialist, based his assertions on U.K. prevalence rates, where HIV affects around 77,000 people versus 1.1 million in the U.S.</p> <p>On the other side, Dr. Joel Gallant of the HIV Medical Association believed that Pemberton didn't necessarily mean to diminish HIV as a "non-issue," but rather highlight the effectiveness of modern HIV therapy when compared to drugs used to treat diabetes.</p> <p>Both sides are right.</p> <p> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259355.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

Soaring HIV Prevalence Paints a Dire Picture for South Africa

<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/s/C/SA_flag_disheveled.jpg" alt="null" />There has inarguably been no bigger turnaround in HIV public health policy than in South Africa, which emerged from the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/dataandstatistics/a/Aids-Denialists-part-Two.htm">rampant AIDS denialism of former-President Thabo Mbeki</a> to become what is today the world's largest and most ambitious public <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/treatmentquestions/fl/What-Are-Antiretrovirals-and-How-Do-They-Work.htm">antiretroviral (ARV)</a> initiative.</p> <p>So profound has this turnaround been that the perception among some is that the South African HIV epidemic is largely under control or that we, as an international community, are somehow approaching the proverbial "end of the tunnel." And why shouldn't anyone believe this, given that many -- including Luis Loures of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) -- are now predicting that the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/b/2013/09/24/doubts-as-un-official-predicts-end-of-aids-epidemic-by-2030.htm">end of the epidemic in nigh</a>?</p> <p>To be fair, many of the statistics support the argument. Since the start of the ARV roll-out in 2003, South Africa has made some incredible inroads, with the latest CDC data indicating an overall <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/b/2013/07/16/why-does-u-s-hiv-infection-rate-stagnate-as-african-rates-plummet.htm">25% drop in new infections</a> and a <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/b/2013/06/26/child-hiv-infections-cut-by-half-in-seven-african-countries.htm">50% reduction in child HIV infections</a> (the latter of which is largely due to highly effective <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/womenandhiv/a/Family-Planning-Pregnancy-And-Hiv.htm">mother-to-child interventions</a>).</p> <p>But that paints only a part of the picture. The fact is that, here in South Africa, the country remains at a critical crossroads, with not only the largest HIV population in the world (6.4 million), but massive obstacles yet to overcome.</p> <p>Chief among these are the rising HIV <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletteri/g/Prevalence-incidence-Glossary-Definition.htm">prevalence</a> rate which, according to the country's Human Science Research Council (HSRC), has increased from 10.6% in 2008 to 12.2% in 2012. While this figure is, in part, due to the increased longevity of those living with HIV, underlying it is the astonishing number of new infections each year. In 2012 alone, the HSRC reported 470,000 new diagnoses -- or nearly 1,100 new infections every day.

Experiences of stigma among women living with HIV attending sexual...

Researchers have widely documented the pervasiveness of HIV stigma and discrimination, and its impact on people living with HIV. Only a few studies, however, have analysed the perceptions of women living with HIV accessing sexual and reproductive health services.


HOAX: Magic Johnson Did Not Donate Blood To Cancer Patients

September is National Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness Month. That is fact.


HIV diagnosis leads friends down different paths

"Drug addiction is really exhausting," Mark S. King says in this week's StoryCorps, recorded at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago's Loop, in conjunction with the National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association's annual convention. "I was here in this very hotel maybe eight years ago, and was in a room upstairs for five days and never left my room."


Researchers can trick the body into fighting HIV, flu, other infections

Scientists have developed a method for "tricking" the body into fighting the spread of some vaccine-resistant diseases such as HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis. A team of researchers at the California Institute of Technology has developed a technique called vectored immunoprophylaxis, or VIP, that triggers an immune response to some types of infectious diseases.


Condoms too small for Uganda men fight against AIDS has a new hurdle

Ugandan MPs have been inundated with complaints that many condoms on sale in the east African nation are too small, warning the problem is a blow to the fight against AIDS. Insisting that one size doesn't fit all, MP Tom Aza said Uganda's Parliamentary Committee for HIV/AIDS said a recent tour of areas worst hit by the virus revealed that some men "have bigger sexual organs and therefore should be considered for bigger condoms."


Stigma, ambivalence and other priorities - " explaining poor...

HIV stigma, the danger of being mistakenly labelled as having HIV, ambivalence about the research process, confusion about the use of antiretrovirals to prevent infection, as well as the need to balance trial participation with other priorities and social relationships all shaped South African women's experience of using pre-exposure prophylaxis or a microbicide gel within a clinical trial, according to a qualitative study. The researchers sought to better understand the reasons for the disappointing results of the VOICE trial - one of the most ambitious studies of biomedical HIV prevention interventions for women ever conducted.


Ghana Aids Commission Meets Editors On HIV/AIDS Response

The Ghana AIDS Commission yesterday met editors of media houses under the editors' forum to deliberate on the role the media can play to help sustain public interest and commitment to the HIV response in the country. The theme for discussion was ''Towards an HIV free generation; the role of the media' 'The meeting afforded the leadership of the commission to keep the media abreast with HIV and AIDS issues and also an opportunity for editors and the commission to dialogue on challenges encountered in writing HIV and AIDS stories, how best to overcome them and find new areas to focus on.


AHF's New Miami 'God Loves HIV+ Me' Billboard Expands Anti-stigma Campaign

On a busy interstate highway in Miami, a new double billboard created by AIDS Healthcare Foundation is taking HIV stigma head-on. The two nearly identical side-by-side billboards, headlined, 'God Loves HIV+ Me, ' each feature HIV-positive individuals in bright red T-shirts reading 'HIV+' across the front.


Fred Hutchinson wins $12.5M award for infectious disease research

Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease that typically attacks the lungs. Although TB is the second-leading infectious disease killer worldwide, and the biggest disease killer of HIV-positive people, it receives far less research funding than either HIV/AIDS or malaria.


Tenofovir Tied to Kidney Damage in Those With Low Body Weight

There is an apparent link between taking Viread and developing kidney damage among HIV-positive people with low body weight. Publishing their findings in the journal AIDS, Japanese researchers conducted a cohort study of 792 treatment-naive people with HIV who started with an antiretroviral regimen that contained either Ziagen or Viread.


San Francisco Politician Goes Public With His Choice To Take Anti-HIV Drug

In an effort to combat stigma that has arisen around a treatment that prevents HIV, a San Francisco elected official announced publicly Wednesday that he is taking the medicine. City Supervisor Scott Wiener said that he is taking Truvada, a drug that dramatically reduces the risk of HIV infection.


Looking Out: CDC launches campaign encouraging HIV treatment

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wants the American public to understand that HIV-positive people who receive treatment live longer and healthier lives compared to those who don't receive treatment, and has launched a new nationwide campaign to get the word out. The "HIV Treatment Works" campaign, announced Wednesday, is the CDC's "first communication campaign focused exclusively on encouraging treatment and care for people living with HIV," the health agency said.

Five-year-old Juliette Colbourne will participate in her fifth Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life on Sunday. On her arms she displays the red safety bracelets that she is selling to help raise money for the walk.


Viagra used by twice as many gay men as ecstasy

New report also shows condom use continues to fall while misunderstanding of hepatitis C's ease of infection is rife. ECSTASY use by gay men in Australia has plummeted by more than two thirds over the last decade, eclipsed by erectile dysfunction medications such as Viagra and Cialis, which are the third most popular drug of choice excluding alcohol and tobacco.


HIV infection surges among African-American women and the elderly

The Louisville AIDS Walk is this coming Sunday. The event was founded 21 years ago, but in that time, despite advances in medical treatment, Kentucky leads the nation in concurrent AIDS diagnoses.
