|What the HIV Baby "Cure" Tells (and Doesn't Tell) Us|
<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/l/C/Newborn_hand.jpg" alt="null" />By now, many people will have read about the second case of an HIV baby "cure," wherein an HIV-infected baby born in Los Angeles was reportedly cleared of the virus after receiving three-drug <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterc/g/Cart-combination-Antiretroviral-Therapy.htm">combination antiretroviral therapy (cART</a>). This latest case appears, at least on the surface, to replicate a similar event last year in which a <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=ttp://aids.about.com/b/2013/04/04/croi-2013-coverage-is-the-child-hiv-cure-really-a-breakthrough.htm">Mississippi baby given cART</a> within 30 hours of birth and now appears virus-free without the use of HIV medications.</p> <p>Within hours of the news brief at last week's Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Boston, many in the media were quick to suggest that the latest case proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that cART at the time of birth can <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/treatmentquestions/a/Functional-Cure.htm">"functionally cure"</a> HIV-infected babies.</p> <p>But is this necessarily what the study tells us, or are we perhaps jumping the gun a bit?<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259267.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

|PrEP Study: Zero HIV Transmissions, Despite Condom-less Sex|
<p>When it comes to researching HIV prevention strategies, <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterc/fl/A-Laymanrsquos-Glossary-to-HIVAIDS-Clinical-Research-Terms.htm">controlled trials</a> (where there is a control group and a placebo group) generally show better results than in "real life" situations where human nature is allowed to run its course. While condoms, for example, have the potential to reduce HIV transmission rates by 85%, in "real life" that figure drops to below 70% due to inconsistent use.</p> <p>Many of us had long assumed that the same would hold true for <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivpreventionquestions/a/The-Facts-About-Hiv-Pre-exposure-Prophylaxis-prep.htm">pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP)</a>. The two-pronged prevention strategy -- in which an uninfected partner in a mixed-status (serodiscordant) relationship is given a daily <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 drug</a> while the HIV-infected partner is given full <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterc/g/Cart-combination-Antiretroviral-Therapy.htm">combination antiretroviral therapy (cART</a>) -- has been shown in research to reduce HIV transmissions by up to 96%.</p> <p>So it might be fair to presume that, in a real life setting, that figure wouldn't hold up given the likelihood of inconsistent dosing and/or sexual partners outside of the relationship.</p> <p>Research presented at the recent Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Boston, in fact, showed just the opposite.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259259.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>
|Uganda's Anti-Gay Law Set to Deepen Country's HIV/AIDS Crisis|
<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/j/C/Musaveni.png" alt="null" />It's not really a stretch of the imagination to predict that Uganda's recently approved anti-gay law will have anything less than a calamitous effect on the rate of HIV transmissions within that poor African nation. The legislation, signed into law by Ugandan President Yuwari Musaveni (<em>pictured</em>) on February 24, allows for the life imprisonment of gay Ugandans, as well as prison sentences for any citizen not reporting gay individuals.</p> <p>It's not unfair to question whether we have already begun to see the impact of the law on HIV transmissions insofar as Uganda is the <em>only</em> nation in all of Central and East Africa to have an increase in the number of HIV infections. The latest incarnation of the law is, in fact, only an extension of government's previous legislation, which had allowed for the imprisonment of gay Ugandans for up to 14 years.</p> <p>Ugandan Health Cabinet Minister James Macharia has already admitted that HIV-positive <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterm/g/Men-Who-Have-Sex-With-Men-MSM.htm">men who have sex with men (MSM)</a> are regularly defaulting on <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 treatment</a> for fear of public disclosure. Currently, of the 100,000 new HIV infections reported in Uganda each year, 33% can be attributed to MSM transmissions.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259245.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>
|Could a Commonly Prescribed HIV Drug Prevent Cervical Cancer?|
<p><img class="alignleft" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/3/l/A/HPV.jpg" alt="null" />We have to admit we were somewhat startled last week by news that lopinavir, the key agent in the HIV protease inhibitor-class drug <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/medicationfactsheets/p/kaletra.htm">Kaletra</a>, is apparently able to wipe out pre-cancerous cells associated with the development of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://cervicalcancer.about.com/od/cervicalcancerbasics/a/whatiscervical.htm">cervical cancer</a>.</p> <p>It was one of those "wow" moments, whereby a potential breakthrough in research is shown to be right there in front of you without you even knowing it.</p> <p>Invasive cervical cancer, or cancer that has spread beyond the surface of the cervix, has been considered an <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/themostcommonquestions/f/defining.htm">AIDS defining condition</a> since 1993. In the U.S. alone, around 12,400 cases of invasive cervical cancer are estimated to be diagnosed this year, with just over 4,000 women expected to die.</p> <p>Ian and Lynne Hampson, a husband and wife research team from the University of Manchester, discovered that lopinavir has the ability to eradicate pre-cancerous cells in 19 of 23 women with <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://cervicalcancer.about.com/od/cervicaldysplasia/a/hgsil.htm">high grade cervical dysplasia</a>, while two of the women reverted to low grade disease.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259235.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

|Update on HIV and Life Expectancy in 2014|
<p><img class="alignleft" src="http://0.tqn.com/d/aids/1/6/R/9/4598412264_6cee64a500_q.jpg" alt="" />Just a year ago it was said that the timely and informed use of <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterc/g/Cart-combination-Antiretroviral-Therapy.htm">combination antiretroviral therapy (cART)</a> could increase HIV life expectancy rates in many developed countries to near-normal levels. That's not necessarily true any longer.</p> <p>According to a new study published in the medical journal <em>PLOS|ONE</em>, if cART is initiated at a <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/treatmentquestions/a/Understanding-Your-Hiv-Tests_2.htm">CD4 count</a> above 350 cells/mL, many people with HIV can now enjoy a life expectancy equal to or even greater than that of the general population.</p> <p>In the comprehensive eight-year review, which looked 22,937 HIV-positive people in the U.S. and Canada from 2000 to 2007, life expectancy for a 20-year-old male just starting cART was estimated to be around 77 years, while a 20-year-old female could live to the age of 82.</p> <p>By contrast, the average life expectancy for all men and women in the U.S. is 75 and 81 years, respectively.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259212.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>

A number of recent studies have compared mortality rates in the "middle years" (between the ages of 35-70) of HIV-infected people versus those of the general population.</p> <p>One of the most compelling pieces of research, published in the January 14 issue of <em>AIDS</em>, was conducted as part of the long-standing Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) and the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS). It included a total of 6,669 HIV-positive participants who were on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivaidsletterc/g/Cart-combination-Antiretroviral-Therapy.htm">combination antiretroviral therapy (cART)</a> and observed from as early as 1985 through 2010.</p> <p>When compared to matched cohort of HIV-negative people, the annual mortality rate among those with HIV were seen to be seven times greater (0.37% versus 2.32%). During the entire course of the study, 540 out of 2,953 people with HIV had died (18.2%) compared to only 165 out of 3,854 HIV-negative people (3.4%).<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259215.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>
|Why Are So Few People Taking PrEP to Prevent HIV?|
<p><img class="alignleft" src="http://0.tqn.com/d/aids/1/0/_/C/Truvada.jpg" alt="null" />There is no question that the daily use of the antiretroviral drug, <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivmedicationfactsheets/p/truvada.htm">Truvada</a>, can significantly reduce the risk of infection in HIV-negative individuals in a serodiscordant relationship (i.e., where one partner is HIV-positive and the other is HIV-negative). The strategy, known as <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/hivpreventionquestions/a/The-Facts-About-Hiv-Pre-exposure-Prophylaxis-prep.htm">pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP)</a>, has been shown to reduce transmission risk by anywhere from 62% to 75% if taken with consistent, uninterrupted adherence.</p> <p>From a scientific viewpoint, those are amazing figures which support the use of PrEP as part of an overall HIV prevention strategy. However, from a real-life perspective, the numbers may not be all that convincing, with the words "consistent, uninterrupted" presenting potential barriers to those who might otherwise sign up.</p> <p>In fact, according to industry research, only 1,774 people in the U.S. have filled prescriptions for Truvada for PrEP between January 2011 and March 2013. That's a startlingly low number, given the 50,000 new HIV infections we are seeing in the U.S. every year.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259200.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>
|Study Reveals Why Patients (and Doctors) Delay HIV Therapy|
<p><img class="alignright" src="http://0.tqn.com/h/aids/1/9/Z/C/Expect-Long-Delay.png" alt="null" />In the U.S., it has long been known that, even when advised of the benefits of early <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://aids.about.com/od/treatmentquestions/a/Understanding-HIV-therapyfacts.htm">antiretroviral therapy (ART)</a>, a large proportion of patients qualified for treatment will turn it down. In fact, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the 902,000 Americans diagnosed with HIV, only 363,000 were actively on ART in 2012.</p> <p>It was largely assumed that a lack of patient readiness and/or understanding was at the heart of this statistic. However, a recent study from the University Hospital Zurich has shown that the reluctance to initiate ART extends not only to patients, but to their doctors, as well.</p> <p>The study, which was conducted in 34 sites across Europe and Australia, surveyed patients who had been diagnosed with HIV and were under a doctor's care for at least 180 days. Of the patients in the cohort, 67% were diagnosed from one to four years ago, while 28% had been diagnosed five or more years previous.</p> <p>Among the surveyed physicians, 78% had five or more years experience treating HIV, while 90% had more than 50 HIV-positive patients in their care.<br /> <a href =http://aids.about.com/b/a/259192.htm><!--#echo var="lbrm" -->...</a>
