• severity
  • The symptoms may develop insidiously, with the diagnosis often not considered for several years, because the complaints of sicca may be otherwise attributed to medications, a dry environment, aging, or may be regarded as not of severity warranting the level of investigation necessary to establish the presence of the specific underlying autoimmune disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • HAART
  • Because this inflammation persists even in the context of suppressive HAART, albeit at modestly decreased levels, adjunctive therapeutic strategies to attenuate this persistent inflammatory response are therefore needed. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • No significant relationship was observed between HAART and HSV-1/2 shedding in univariable (OR=1.55, 95% CI 0.83 to 2.87) or multivariable negative binomial models adjusted for sex, baseline CD4 count, recent immigrant status and time since HIV diagnosis (adjusted OR, aOR=1.05, 95% CI 0.43 to 2.58). (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions HSV reactivations persist despite suppressive HAART among adults coinfected with HSV and HIV. (bmj.com)
  • Unique in restricting the HAART-treated group to patients with undetectable HIV viral loads, thus maximising its relevance to the modern era. (bmj.com)
  • AIDS
  • During HIV/AIDS micronutrients play a key role in the host defense systems-Micronutrients such as zinc and copper have been implicated to play important roles in immuno-physiologic functions. (asrjetsjournal.org)
  • infections
  • Injection drug use is the fastest growing risk for both infections, accounting for 26% of new HIV infections in Canada in 1999. (natap.org)
  • 1,2 ) Recent clinicalexperience suggests that effective anti-HIV therapy and chemoprophylaxis for Pneumocystis carinii (PCP), Mycobacterium avium (MAC), and cytomegalovirus(CMV) may delay/prevent the occurrence of gastrointestinal opportunistic infections. (ucsf.edu)
  • chronic
  • By revisiting our previous screen of microRNA plasma levels in HBeAg-positive and HBeAg-negative children with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and in healthy controls, candidate microRNAs with aberrant plasma expressions in HBeAg-positive children were identified. (hindawi.com)
  • status
  • In conclusion, waist-hip ratio has been identified as a more sensitive predictor and nutrition status maker than body mass index in early HIV hence can be a decisive benchmark for monitoring HIV progression. (asrjetsjournal.org)
  • individuals
  • Descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in the voluntary counselling and testing centre (VCT) at Comprehensive Care Clinics in Taita-Taveta County health care services, Coast, Kenya, blood samples obtained from 192 HIV sero-positive individuals, 18 years of age and gender matched healthy controls were analyzed for zinc and copper using atomic absorption spectrophotometer machine.

  • women
  • Higher MSA-level household income and imbalanced sex ratios (more women than men) in the MSA were associated with higher odds of testing. (springer.com)
  • study
  • National HIV Behavioral Surveillance Study Group author names are listed in Acknowledgements. (springer.com)
  • control
  • In particular, three microRNAs were upregulated and one was downregulated in HBeAg-positive children compared to HBeAg-negative and healthy control children, which showed equal levels. (hindawi.com)
