Trump Wants to End HIV Within 10 Years. Here ’s What That Would Take, According to Experts

About 1.1 million Americans currently live with HIV, and approximately 40,000 are infected each year, according to federal data. But in his State of the Union address, President Donald Trump promised to “eliminate the HIV epidemic in the United States within 10 years” — a plan that hinges on a multi-agency push for better diagnosis, treatment and prevention in at-risk communities, health officials said Wednesday. Trump introduced the plan during his annual address on Tuesday but offered few details. Health officials fleshed out the plan during a call with reporters on Wednesday. The initiative will be overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and will bring together the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Indian Health Service. They will target 48 U.S. counties where HIV transmission is high, focusing on at-risk populations including transgender individuals, men who have sex with men and people of color. Efforts will focus on early diagnosis and treatment for people who are infected; access to proactive measures, such as the preventative drug PrEp, in vulnerable populations; and outbreak response, said Dr. Brett Giroir, Assistant Secretary for Health at HHS, on the call. The CDC and the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) 19 Centers for AIDS Research will work with local health authorities to a...

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 ...

Batsch), and they are members of the pathogenesis-related protein 10 (PR-10) and non-specific lipid transfer protein (nsLTP) families, respectively. They are the main allergens of peach. In this paper, we describe a quantitative method for these proteins based on protein absolute quantification with liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry, and...

Low solubility and bioavailability of drug limits the use of conventional drug administrative methods and hence the need for drug delivery vehicles arises. Different drug delivery vehicles have been used in the past but usually, the information is limited to qualitative in nature. Here, we have reported quantitative insights into interaction of human s...

In this study, inactivated ISKNV vaccine was prepared, then poly (I:C), chitosan, anisodamine and ims1312 were used as adjuvants to evaluate the effect on the immune responses and ISKNV replication. Chitosan could strongly boost the protection of liver and spleen tissues by pathological sections. In serum, poly (I:C) and chitosan group had protective effect on catalase, acid phosphatase, blood urea nitrogen. mRNA expressions showed these adjuvants induced the cytokines of early immune responses (TNF-α, Viperin) in both spleen and mesonephron by real time quantitative RT-PCR assays. Meanwhile, poly (I:C), chitosan and...

CONCLUSIONS: In the presence of progressive dyspnea, cough, and lesions comparable to interstitial lung disease, diagnosis of PLC should be considered. Pulmonary lymphangitis carcinomatosis can be the first manifestation of primary occult neoplasm and may occur at any age. Adenocarcinoma, especially primary lung, breast, and gastric cancers is the most common cancer coexisting with PLC. PMID: 30900501 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
