Serological response to 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in children and adolescents with perinatally acquired HIV infection
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 07:25:24 +0100 | AIDS
Conclusion:Children with paHIV mount a robust serological response to PCV13 for most but not all vaccine serotypes. Viral load suppression with HAART and higher baseline IgG concentration are associated with higher postvaccination antibody levels. This has implications for HAART treatment and vaccination practices. (Source: AIDS)

HIV_1_specific.2.aspx target=_blank rel="nofollow">Programmed death-1 expression on HIV-1-specific CD8+ T cells is shaped by epitope specificity, T-cell receptor clonotype usage and antigen load
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 16:09:38 +0100 | AIDS
Conclusion:Collectively, these data suggest that PD-1 expression on HIV-1-specific CD8+ T cells tracks antigen load at the level of epitope specificity and TCR clonotype usage. These findings are important because they provide evidence that PD-1 expression levels are influenced by peptide/HLA class I antigen exposure. (Source: AIDS)

Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis in HIV Infection and Disease
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 15:21:08 +0100 | Endocrinology and Metabolism Clinics of North America
HIV infection induces hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis derangements. Partial glucocorticoid resistance has been observed in a subset of AIDS patients, possibly owing to HIV-induced altered cytokine secretion and action. Because glucocorticoids have immunomodulatory effects, the severity of the HPA axis disorder could play a central role in disease progression. The characteristic phenotype of AIDS patients (visceral obesity, lipodystrophy) may be owing to effects of HIV proteins on the HPA axis, including changes in glucocorticoid and insulin sensitivity of target tissues, as well as altered cytokine production and interaction with the HPA axis, genetic causes, comorbidities, and, possibly, use of antiretroviral agents.

From Wasting to Obesity, Changes in Nutritional Concerns in HIV/AIDS
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 15:21:06 +0100 | Endocrinology and Metabolism Clinics of North America
Optimal nutrition is an important part of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) care; to support the immune system, limit HIV-associated complications as well as maintain better quality of life and survival. The presentation and nature of malnutrition in patients with HIV has changed dramatically over the past 30 years from predominantly a wasting syndrome to lipodystrophy and, now, frailty. Nevertheless, we continue to see all 3 presentations in patient care today. The pathogenesis of poor nutrition in HIV-infected patients depends on caloric intake, intestinal nutrient absorption/translocation, and resting energy expenditure, which are features seen in all chronic diseases.

[IRIN]Melbourne -Stigma, squeamishness and misunderstanding of anal sex is leading to research gaps and inaccurate information about the risks of this common sexual behaviour, and hindering effective HIV/AIDS prevention strategies, experts say. A move towards "sex positive" approaches could enhance social acceptance and increase protection. (Source: AllAfrica News: HIV-Aids and STDs)
