Survival After HIV Infection Stage 3 (AIDS) Diagnosis, by Population Density Areas, United States, 2005-2010.

We examined the survival rates after diagnosis of HIV infection stage 3 (AIDS) in the United States by population density area of residence at diagnosis. METHODS: We used data from the National HIV Surveillance System to calculate survival rates among people aged ≥13 with HIV infection stage 3 (AIDS) diagnosed from 2005 through 2010. We determined survival rates for more than 12, 24, and 36 months after diagnosis; overall and by demographic characteristics; and across 3 population density area categories (large metropolitan statistical areas [MSAs, ≥500 000 people], small-to-medium MSAs [50 000 to 499 999 people], and nonmetropolitan areas [

Authors: Chen Y, Sun J, Liu H, Yin G, Xie Q Abstract Chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cells are T cells engineered to express specific synthetic antigen receptors that can recognize antigens expressed by tumor cells, which after the binding of these antigens to the receptors are eliminated, and have been adopted to treat several kinds of malignancies. Autoimmune diseases (AIDs), a class of chronic disease conditions, can be broadly separated into autoantibody-mediated and T cell-mediated diseases. Treatments for AIDs are focused on restoring immune tolerance. However, current treatments have little effect on imm...

This article was based on data from the 2003, 2008 and 2014 Ghana Demographic and Health Surveys. A bivariate statistical method was used to calculate the levels of uptake while three logit models were fitted to estimate the determinants of HIV uptake among the respondents. The total levels of the uptake of HIV testing among the respondents were 9.1%, 14.7% and 22.7% for 2003, 2008 and 2014, respectively; 15% overall. These were significantly determined by age, educational attainment, religious affiliation, wealth and work status, region of residence and media exposure. HIV testing uptake is very low among men in Ghana, al...

CONCLUSIONS: Severe SE, not outcomes, was the most decisive attribute determining future HCRCT participation. Particular attention should be paid to providing clear information, in particular on severe SE, to potential participants. Immunotherapy would appear to be the best HCRCT candidate for both PLWH and physicians. However, if the risk of cancer could be avoided, gene therapy would become the preferred strategy for the latter and the second choice for the former. PMID: 32077248 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: IDCasesAuthor(s): Catherine Brahe, Rachel EllisAbstractLate diagnosis of HIV is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Infected individuals need to be identified early and started on antiretroviral therapy to increase their survival and to limit transmission to the community. Historically speaking, late diagnosis has been a common occurrence in the United States, despite the majority of those patients having had a medical encounter in the year prior to their diagnosis. These visits represent missed opportunities for HIV testing and therefore delays in i...
