Authors: Ottria L, Lauritano D, Oberti L, Candotto V, Cura F, Tagliabue A, Tettamanti L Abstract HIV infection is one of the major health problem of the last decades. This disease causes a chronic infection that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). According to the Global AIDS update, released in 2016 by HIV department of World Health Organization (WHO) and by the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), at the end of 2015, 36.7 million people were infected by HIV: 34.9 million of these were adults and 1.8 million were children under 15 years of age. The same report shows that during 201...

Nutrition is an integral component of medical care for people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/autoimmune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) (PLWHA). The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics supports integration of medical nutrition therapy into routine care for this population. Fewer PLWHA experience wasting and undernutrition, while the prevalence of obesity and other chronic diseases has increased significantly. Improved understanding of HIV infection ’s impact on metabolism and chronic inflammation has only increased the complexity of managing chronic HIV infection.

CONCLUSIONS: Through the course of these FGDs, PrEP became a positive and highly anticipated prevention option among the FSWs participants who endorsed implementation in their communities. Effective integration of PrEP into existing services will include comprehensive health programming where ART is also available, appropriate messaging, and support.

Cellulitis is commonly misdiagnosed, with resultant health care expenditures and complications from antibiotic overprescription. Ko et  al. evaluate the use of thermal imaging to aid in the diagnosis of cellulitis, with promising results. Limitations include a small sample size and questionable applicability to bilateral leg findings, where cellulitis is unlikely regardless of temperature differential. Nevertheless, this technolog y has potential to improve patient care.

Authors: Ma Y, Zhao W, Shi C, Wang N, Fan T Abstract The effects of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) on the metabolic and biological pathways of cluster of differentiation (CD)4+ T lymphocytes were investigated. A total of 150 patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and 50 healthy individuals who were admitted to hospital for physical examination during the period of June 2016 to January 2017, were selected as subjects in the present study. According to the virus load, 150 AIDS patients were divided into three groups: i) Viral load>106 copies/ml (group A, n=39), ii) 104 copies/ml
