Predictors of sarcopenia in young hospitalized patients living with HIV
This study aimed to identify factors related to sarcopenia, correlating their anthropometric and clinical markers in hospitalized people living with HIV. This was an observational cross-sectional clinical study, carried out from September 2018 through October 2019. Handgrip strength, muscle mass index, calf circumference and gait speed test were evaluated in recruited patients within three days of hospital admission. The sample consisted in 44 patients, mostly men (66%), black (68%), young adults (41.65±12.18 years) and immunodeficient (CD4 cell count 165 cells/mm3 [34.25-295.5]). Sarcopenia was present in 25% of th...

Two cases of neural tube defects with dolutegravir use at conception in south Brazil
Braz J Infect Dis. 2021 Apr 11:101572. doi: 10.1016/j.bjid.2021.101572. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDolutegravir (DTG) is amongst the most prescribed antiretrovirals worldwide and is recommended as first line regimen in most HIV treatment guidelines. Its use, although infrequently, had been associated to an increased chance of neural tube defects (NTD) in Botswana, Africa. Herein we describe two cases of NTD in women who conceived while taking DTG as part of their antiretroviral treatment in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil.PMID:33852885 | DOI:10.1016/j.bjid.2021.101572 (Source: Braz J Infect Dis)

Innate and Th1/Th17 adaptive immunity in acute and convalescent Brazilian borreliosis disease
Braz J Infect Dis. 2021 Apr 10:101575. doi: 10.1016/j.bjid.2021.101575.

The BB clinical picture is characterized by a pathognomonic skin lesion (migratory erythema) and joint, neurological, cardiac and psychiatric symptoms. Innate and Th1/Th17 adaptive immunity seem to play an important role in the pathogenesis of Lyme disease.OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to characterize the role of innate and Th1/Th17 adaptive immunity in BB patient...

This study is the first of this magnitude to be held in a Latin-American country with high SVR results, supported by a free-of-charge universal and public health system.
