Two individuals with human immunodeficiency virus presented in acute renal failure with nephrotic range proteinuria and were diagnosed with secondary syphilis.

Authors: Qin B, Zhao K, Wei J, Wang X, Xu M, Lang J, Sun H, Jin K Abstract As a member of the liver tropic virus family, hepatitis B virus (HBV) was thought to only infect and replicate within the liver. Sodium taurocholate co‑transporting polypeptide (NTCP) has been identiﬁed as a functional cellular receptor and a major determinant of liver tropism and HBV entry level species speciﬁcity. In the present study, the Oncomine database was used to explore differences in NTCP expression among cancerous and normal tissues. The results revealed that NTCP was highly expressed in breast cancer (BC), which was su...
Conclusions: Rural/remote HIV/AIDS programs across Canada expressed similar challenges and lessons learned, suggesting that there is potential for knowledge exchange, and development of a community of practice. Top-down planning and evaluation models may fail to capture program achievements in rural/remote contexts. The long-term engagement practices that render rural/remote programs promising do not always conform to planning and implementation requirements of limited funding.
Use of software improves sensitivity of radiologists, reduces number of false - positive findings

CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this review suggest that in settings with limited resources, current guideline recommendations to provide enhanced adherence counselling can result in resuppression of a substantial number of these patients, avoiding unnecessary drug regimen changes. Appropriate action on viral load results is limited across a range of settings, highlighting the importance of viral load cascade analyses to identify gaps and focus quality improvement to ensure that action is taken on the results of viral load testing.
