Background: The Xpert MTB/RIF assay has been widely implemented in South Africa for rapid tuberculosis (TB) screening.
Objective: Worldwide, HIV-associated cryptococcal meningitis affects approximately 1 million persons and causes 600,000 deaths each year mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
Objective: Sex workers (SWs) in sub-Saharan Africa face a disproportionate HIV burden and growing concerns of severe human rights violations.
Abstract: APOL1 renal risk alleles are associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in adults, with the strongest effect being for HIV-associated nephropathy.
Background: Viremia copy-years (VCY), a time-updated measure of cumulative HIV exposure, predicts AIDS/death; although its utility in deciding when to start combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) remains unclear.
Background: Attrition along the HIV care continuum slows gains in mitigating the South African HIV epidemic.
Objective: Despite global evidence that sex workers (SWs) are disproportionately impacted by HIV, data on HIV treatment outcomes among SWs living with HIV remains sparse.
Objective: To investigate complications of cesarean section in a cohort of HIV-infected pregnant women.
Background: Total CD4+ T-cell counts predict HIV disease progression but do not necessarily reflect normalization of immune function.
Background: Patients with HIV, even with suppressed viremia on combination antiretroviral therapy, are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
Background: HIV infection is clinically managed with antiretroviral therapy (ART), but only with sustained adherence.
Background: It is unknown if a survival gap remains between HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected individuals with access to care.
Abstract: HIV infection is marked by phenotypic and functional alterations of immune cells.
