HIV drug prices are getting higher and higher. This threatens to cause European HIV patients serious difficulties accessing their medication in the near future.
Research has shown that HIV infected patients from a low socioeconomic background, as well as racial and ethnic minorities, receive fewer health services.
This trial marks an important step in the advancement toward an AIDS vaccine.
Researchers have discovered that a surprising number of meningitis cases among AIDS patients in sub Saharan Africa were caused by an extremely rare subspecies of the infectious yeast Cryptococcus.
Methamphetamine abuse and HIV infection cause significant alterations in the size of certain brain structures.
Interleukin 2 (IL 2), an immune boosting drug used experimentally in HIV therapy, greatly increases the lifespan of certain subsets of immune system T cells in some HIV positive people.
Diagnostic methods and knowledge of disease progression can be useful to treat HIV patients.
Voluntary, unpaid blood donations cut the risk of HIV and AIDS infection through transfusion.
Women have in the last 20 years moved from those least affected by HIV to those in whom the disease is spreading fastest, John Hopkins AIDS Expert Says.
The study provides a basis to develop defensin like drugs for prevention of HIV.
Medical science is making significant strides in the battle against HIV/AIDS. However, there is a continuing need for HIV/AIDS patients to take part in trials of newly developed drug agents and strategies.
New insights as to how HIV evades the human immune system may offer a new approach for developing HIV vaccines.
In people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), highly active anti retroviral therapy (HAART) may prevent most excess cases of Kaposi sarcoma and non Hodgkin lymphoma.
A widely-used class of drugs that keep the HIV virus infection from progressing to AIDS may cause serious and potentially lethal heart rhythm disturbances in some patients.
Researchers have found alpha defensin 1, a protein found in cells, may be the key to controlling HIV infection. Defensins have been shown to have anti HIV activity. The body attempts to protect itself from HIV infection via the innate immune system.
Finding a drug that fights HIV for the long-term is important because about half the HIV infected people in the U.S. have some level of resistance to anti HIV drugs.
Combination and order of anti HIV drugs are important factors when designing treatment strategies for patients new to antiretroviral therapy. Findings offer new insight into the most effective approach for treating previously untreated HIV-infected individuals.
The human body produces an immune response against HIV 1 about two to four weeks after exposure to the virus. Killer T cells and B cells reduce HIV 1 levels by attacking the invading virus and infected cells. Despite this massive effort, some HIV 1 can escape the body's defenses.
Just a decade ago treatment of HCV in persons infected with HIV was not a priority because they died from AIDS before developing serious complications of hepatitis C infection. As new anti HIV drug treatments extend the lives of HIV positive individuals, studies like this one provide essential guidance on treating other serious health problems affecting people living with HIV
A recently published UNAIDS report shows that 5 million people became newly infected with HIV last year, more than any other year since the beginning of the AIDS/HIV epidemic.
In developing countries, women and girls usually care for HIV and AIDS patients and orphans. World Vision supports local groups that care for HIV and AIDS patients and orphans and assist AIDS affected families.
Although the scientific evidence is overwhelming and compelling that HIV is the cause of AIDS, the disease process is still not completely understood. This incomplete understanding has led some persons to make statements that AIDS is not caused by an infectious agent or is caused by a virus that is not HIV.
