Exposures to combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) as well as to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection have an impact on the development of subclinical and clinical atherosclerosis, consecutively. Intima-media thickness (IMT) is used to detect the presence of subclinical atherosclerosis. A number of studies showed that atherosclerotic lesions and plaque formations in the carotid arteries are weakly associated with plaques in other peripheral arteries. Thus, the aim of this study was to compare the prevalence of atherosclerotic plaques and subclinical atherosclerosis in the carotid and femoral arteries in HIV/AIDS p...

The effects of temperatures on the deformation mechanisms of HEPE cast films are systematically studied with in-situ synchrotron radiation small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) techniques during stretching in a wide temperature r...

AbstractTransactional sex is associated with socioeconomic disadvantage and HIV risk but few studies in the United States (US) have examined both individual and area-level predictors of transactional sex or distinguished transactional sex from sex work. We combined data from HIV Prevention Trials Network 064 study and the US Census to estimate prevalence ratios (PR) for the relationship between census-level and individual measures of economic deprivation and housing instability on transactional sex in 417 women in North Carolina. Increased transactional sex was associated with food insecurity (PR 1.86; 95%; CI 1.57, 2.19),...

CONCLUSIONS: By mid- to late-2017, the Treat All strategy was the standard of care at almost all IeDEA sites, including rural, primary-level health facilities in low-resource settings. While further assessments of site-level capacity to provide high-quality HIV care under Treat All and to support sustained viral suppression after ART initiation are needed, the widespread introduction of Treat All at the service delivery level is a critical step towards global targets for ending the HIV epidemic as a public health threat.

Unsolved issues include whether the increased atherosclerosis burden observed in some studies is attributed to greater prevalence of traditional risk factors or HIV infection. Therefore, we evaluated the association of HIV infection with subclinical atherosclerosis as ...

AbstractInherited bleeding coagulation disorders (IBCDs) have a powerful diagnostic tool in next generation sequencing (NGS) that not only offers confirmation of diagnosis but also aids in genetic counselling, prenatal diagnosis and helps to predict the clinical course and follow-up of a disease. In our group, targeted-NGS using a Custom SureSelect QXT Panel (Agilent Technologies, Inc., Santa Clara, CA, USA) was designed to screen for causal variants in 40 genes related with the coagulation cascade. In this work, we used NGS for screening all the coding and intronic boundary regions ofF5 gene in two patients affected by fa...
