Disclosure of HIV status to HIV-infected children and adolescents is a major care challenge. We describe current site characteristics related to disclosure of HIV status in resource-limited paediatric HIV care settings within the International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) consortium.

Specific aims of the 1-year project are to pilot test the disclosure support intervention by (a) evaluating acceptability and feasibility with a preliminary randomized trial among 10 HIV+ ...
The purpose of this study is to find a safe and tolerable dose of the protease inhibitor (PI) atazanavir (ATV), with or without a low-dose boost of the PI ritonavir (RTV), when taken with ...
The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the steady state pharmacokinetics (PK) for bictegravir (GS-9883) and confirm the dose of bictegravir/emtricitabine/tenofovir alafenamid...
Research study with a new drug called TMC 125 to be used in the treatment of HIV-infected children and adolescents.
Development of tolerable and effective antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for use in children and adolescents remains a high priority. First-line therapy with non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase ...
Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.
A malignant solid tumor arising from mesenchymal tissues which normally differentiate to form striated muscle. It can occur in a wide variety of sites. It is divided into four distinct types: pleomorphic, predominantly in male adults; alveolar (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, ALVEOLAR), mainly in adolescents and young adults; embryonal (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, EMBRYONAL), predominantly in infants and children; and botryoidal, also in young children. It is one of the most frequently occurring soft tissue sarcomas and the most common in children under 15.
