AbstractCigarette smoking has declined among New York City (NYC) adults since 2002, but research has shown that NYC tobacco control policies may be less impactful among Asian communities, particularly Chinese.

Abstract Current challenges to antiretroviral therapy have opened new vistas in the search for novel drugs from natural products. This review focusses on plants as sources of inhibitors for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase. Based on a systematic search of the literature, anti-HIV-1 reverse transcriptase activity was recorded for 132 plant species in 100 genera and 51 families. Seven families comprise 52.6% of plant species with anti-reverse transcriptase activity: Lamiaceae (13.7%), Fabaceae (10.7%), Euphorbiaceae (9.9%), Clusiaceae (6.1%), Asteraceae (4.6%), Combretaceae (4.6%), and Morace...

AbstractHomelessness is a substantial barrier to consistent, recommended HIV care, access and adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART), and sustained viral suppression, thus increasing the risk for morbidity and transmission. We used data from the Medical Monitoring Project for June 1, 2015 –May 31, 2017 to estimate the weighted prevalence of homelessness among persons with diagnosed HIV (PWH) (N = 7665) overall and by selected sociodemographic, behavioral, and clinical characteristics. Prevalence of homelessness was 8.5%. PWH experiencing homelessness were >  3 times as likely to have...
