HIV Infection & AIDS
HIV/AIDS is a global pandemic with Sub-Saharan Africa being the most affected region. In 2017, almost 37 million people were infected with HIV and almost 1 million deaths occurred due to AIDS. Find the latest research on HIV/AIDS here.
HIV co-infection worsens the histological course of other viral infections, such as HCV by increasing and accelerating the risk of cirrhosis or leading to rare but lethal fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis. Discover the latest research on HIV co-infection.
While good nutrition is important for all individuals, it is especially an important issue for those infected HIV for several reasons. HIV infection impacts metabolic, cardiovascular, and psychological functioning and nutrition is key in managing these changes. Find the latest research on HIV and nutrition here.
The development to make HIV vaccines for both the prevention and treatment of HIV infection is ongoing. Some individuals with HIV infection produce antibodies which suppress the virus and allow the patients to remain asymptomatic, suggesting that a vaccine may be achievable. Find the latest research on HIV vaccines here.
HIV-1 reverse transcriptase is among the earliest HIV proteins identified and is involved in viral replication. More than half of investigational long-acting antivirals target hiv-1 reverse transcriptase and/or integrase (hiv-1 in). Discover the latest research here.
HIV/AIDS infection increases the risk of non-communicable diseases common in the aged including HIV/AIDS-related malignancies. Discover the latest research in HIV/AIDS-related malignancies.
This feed focuses on emerging cell and gene therapies, such as HIV vaccines, for treating patients living with HIV/AIDS. Discover the latest research here.
HIV can affect the body's ability to produce hormones and maintain their normal levels. Some drugs that are used to treat HIV-related conditions can also affect hormone levels. Discover the latest research on hormones and HIV here.
Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.
Pyroptosis is a form of necrotic and inflammatory programmed cell death induced by inflammatory caspases, one of which is activated by Inflammasome, a multiprotein oligomer responsible for the activation of inflammatory responses. Discover the latest research on inflammasome and pyroptosis here.
Kaposi's Sarcoma is the most common malignancy associated with human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection, characterized by abnormal skin growth and can result in significant morbidity.
Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
Several methods have been utilized to isolate and characterize individual antibodies from the human repertoire and each of these methods has been applied to the generation of broadly neutralizing HIV antibodies. Discover the latest research on neutralizing HIV antibodies.
The HIV genome is composed of two identical single-stranded RNA molecules. It contains nine genes encoding fifteen structural and regulatory viral proteins. Find the latest research on the HIV genome here.
