FDA Updates Atazanavir Oral Powder Label

"On September 24, 2015, FDA approved revisions to the Reyataz (atazanavir) oral powder label to include dosing recommendations for patients three months and older weighing at least 5 kg. This represents the addition of a new pediatric weight band. Previously the oral powder formulation was for patients three months and older weighing at least 10 kg.   "Reyataz oral powder must be taken with ritonavir and is not recommended for use in children who weigh less than 5 kg."   The updated labeling will be available at the FDA website.   More information is available: FDA: Press release AIDSinfo: Patient fact sheet on atazanavir

CONCLUSIONS: Differentiated care for mothers and infants represents an opportunity to provide client-centred care that reduces the burden on clients and health systems while improving the quality and uptake of services for families. However, with decreasing funding, stable HIV incidence, and aspirations for sustainability, it is critical to consider efficient, customized and cost-effective models of care for these populations as we aspire to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

CONCLUSIONS: TRIP's recruiting techniques, including prioritizing networks of the recently infected, find undiagnosed HIV-positive people efficiently. They should be integrated with standard practice to improve case-finding. Research should test these techniques in other socio-epidemiologic contexts.

We report a case of a 31-year-old woman who presented with renal colic. Various hematological, biochemical and radiological investigations were performed and a slightly enlarged right parathyroid was found. A clinical diagnosis of parathyroid adenoma was made and a right parathyroidectomy was done. Intraoperatively the surgeon had no suspicion of malignancy but microscopically the lesion was malignant and a final diagnosis of parathyroid carcinoma was rendered based on the criteria of invasion. Since there is no gold standard, a multidisciplinary approach, including the entire clinical, biochemical, radiological and pathol...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewNeurocognitive disorders are not uncommon in HIV-positive patients but their pathogenesis is multifactorial and incompletely understood. After excluding contributing comorbidities, several factors may impair neurocognition including severe immune suppression, incomplete antiviral efficacy, drugs' persistent immune activation, vascular abnormalities, and drugs' neurotoxicity. The effectiveness of targeted antiretroviral strategies on these risk factors is unknown.Recent FindingsRecent studies support the idea that residual cerebrospinal fluid HIV RNA in the setting of plasma viral suppression is ass...
