Conclusions: Historically, proximal humeral endoprostheses have a poor track record regarding stability. Although the aortograft group trended toward longer time to proximal humeral migration, it did not significantly improve functional range of motion. The role of modular reverse total shoulder arthroplasty should be further investigated to determine if there is improvement in stability and functional range of motion. Level of Evidence: IV.

There was no relief from grieving my brother – until I realised an important lessonWhen my older brother Jerry became ill with Aids in the 1980s, he was working as a psychologist in New York and I was living in a small cottage in Berkeley, California, with the man who is now my husband.

This article compares findings from two independently conducted studies of bisexual aging, in the United Kingdom and the United States, using a discourse analytic and life course perspective.

Findings indicate that similar histories around lesbian separatism and the HIV/AIDS epidemic enabled shared discursive resources, while differing ethnic and racial relations enabled distinctive discursive possibilities. In both studies inters...

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV-1 infection/AIDS has significantly extended the life expectancy of HIV-1-infected individuals and reduced HIV-1 transmission at very high rates. However, adverse effects and the emergence of drug resistant HIV-1 variants are still big issues in ART. In this regard, protease inhibitors (PIs) generally have high genetic barrier against resistance. In particular, darunavir (DRV), the only PI recommended for first line therapy, currently represents the most widely used PI for treating HIV-1-infected individuals.

AbstractHIV testing is central to biomedical HIV prevention, but testing among men who have sex with men remains suboptimal. We evaluated effectiveness of mass media and communication interventions to increase HIV testing and explored patterns between study type, internal validity and intervention effectiveness for the first time.

Data were extracted and synthesised narratively. Nineteen studies met inclusion criteria; 11 were cross-sectiona...
