Pathogenic bacteria and their microbial products activate dendritic cells (DCs) at mucosal surfaces during sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and therefore might also differently shape DC functions during co-infection with HIV-1. We recently illustrated that complement (C) coating of HIV-1 (HIV-C), as primarily found during the acute phase of infection before appearance of HIV-specific antibodies, by-passed SAMHD1-mediated restriction in DCs and therefore mediated an increased DC activation and antiviral capacity. To determine whether the superior antiviral effects of HIV-C-exposed DCs also apply during STIs, we develo...

Intrauterine devices and contraceptive implants are safe, highly effective first-line contraceptive options for adolescents. As use of these long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods has steadily risen among teenagers and young adults, pregnancy rates among these groups have declined. Specifically for postpartum adolescents, choosing to initiate a LARC method shortly after pregnancy has been found to decrease the substantial risk of a short interpregnancy interval, thus creating opportunities for healthier families and communities. At the same time, sexually transmitted infection (STI) rates in the United States ...
