However, the manufacturing of powdered honey is still a challenge both for industry as well as researchers. It results from the chemical composition of this unique product, mainly from high content of sugars and organic acids. Honey powder preparation involves the application of appropriate carrier, drying aid and/or enriching ...

Abstract HIV-positive patients are treated with various antiretroviral-containing drug combinations to control their underlying disease, which may also be combined with drugs aimed to manage independent or secondary comorbidities. This can expose patients to drug-drug interactions (DDIs) that may lead to suboptimal drug exposure, an increased risk of therapeutic failure or poor tolerability, and a need to adopt alternative therapeutic strategies. Although such undesired responses to pharmacological therapies can be appropriately managed in some situations, the fact that the available information is usually incompl...

Abstract The goal of this report was to propose a model, wherein synergy between the B-cell antigen receptor (BCR) and toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling is involved in the selection of the B-cell precursors of HIV-1 broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) with long heavy chain complementarity determining regions 3, from immature/transitional B cells. The model predicts the involvement of Ab/HIV-1 complexes in a way that Ab from the complex binds both BCRs and HIV-1, while on internalization of HIV-1 TLR ligands such as CpG motifs interacts with TLR9. The result of BCR and TLR9 orchestrated signaling is a formatio...

Abstract Successful HIV treatment is contingent on sustained high levels of treatment adherence. Several barriers to optimal adherence have been documented. In this article, we first review the global burden of non-adherence among HIV/AIDS positive individuals on a public health scale. Second, we synthesized available evidence from different study designs and stratified across the European, African, and Asian literature to determine the factors influencing adherence to scheduled clinic appointments and medication non-adherence. Third, we discuss common measurement techniques that quantify the magnitude of non-adhe...

Abstract Neuropsychiatric adverse events (NPAEs) observed with the integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) dolutegravir (DTG) are usually mild to moderate. The most prevalent symptoms are insomnia and sleep disorders, but the spectrum also includes dizziness, anxiety, depression, headache, paraesthesia, muscle-skeletal pain, poor concentration, and slow thinking. In recent cohort studies involving>6400 patients in different countries, discontinuation rates due to NPAEs were observed in around 3.5% (range, 1.4-7.2%) of subjects treated with DTG. These rates have been higher than those seen in randomized clin...
