To determine whether a decrease in midtrimester cervical length across pregnancies is associated with preterm delivery in a subsequent pregnancy.
Restricted capacity for viral load (VL) testing is a major obstacle for antiretroviral therapy (ART) programs in high-burden regions. Algorithms for targeted VL testing could help allocate laboratory ...
Ongoing HIV replication while receiving combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) may reduce survival. Viremia copy-years (VCY) has shown improved mortality risk prediction over single time-point vira...
Despite the high HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TGW), there are limited data on progress on their respective HIV antiretroviral treatment (ART) cascades to...
European treatment guidelines for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection recommend that people with genotype (GT)1a infection and baseline viral load ≤800,000 IU/mL receive elbasvir/grazoprevir (EBR/GZR)...
Data from other countries have suggested that oral mifepristone used as a cervical ripening agent may decrease induction to delivery time in midtrimester inductions. To our knowledge, the...
Induction of midtrimester abortion includes cervical ripening and then contraction to induce uterine evacuation. There are several protocols, but most of them include using prostaglandins ...
The aim of this study to compare vaginal progesterone supplementation to cervical cerclage for prevention of preterm labor in women with short cervical length and history of previous midtr...
The pathophysiology from anal HPV infection to Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia is less well understood than cervical HPV infection. In cervical screening programs it is well accepted that t...
This study aims to determine: a) whether those patients with 'low level' viral load results (between 200 and 3,000 copies/ml) could be monitored as opposed to starting preemptive therapy w...
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
The continuous, long-term suppression of VIRAL LOAD, generally to undetectable levels, as the result of treatment with ANTIVIRAL AGENTS.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
Care provided the pregnant woman in order to prevent complications, and decrease the incidence of maternal and prenatal mortality.
AIDS and HIV
AIDS; Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. HIV; Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV infection causes AIDS. HIV infection also causes the production of anti-HIV antibodies, which forms the test for HIV in patients. People who have the HIV antibodies are ...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
