The population of children who had prenatal exposure to HIV and to antiretroviral agents who do not become infected with HIV is growing. What effect do ARVs have on neurodevelopment in this group?
Clinical trials of second generation direct-acting antivirals in HCV show high cure rates. But do those rates reflect real life?
This case study of 2 patients suggests that very early antiretroviral therapy is not enough to prevent formation of latent viral reservoirs and prevent HIV rebound on treatment discontinuation.
A systematic approach may help more primary care clinicians identify men who have sex with men among their patients, which in turn could help them focus on patients in need of more frequent HIV testing and preventive services.

Patients coinfected with HIV and HCV who drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day can cut their risk of dying in half.

Patients coinfected with HIV and HCV who drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day can cut their risk of dying in half, says a new study.
An intelligent risk stratification algorithm can trigger a prompt for clinicians to offer an HIV test when they are ordering routine blood tests, potentially leading to earlier HIV diagnoses.
