Change in Cervical Length across Pregnancies and Preterm Delivery.

 To determine whether a decrease in midtrimester cervical length across pregnancies is associated with preterm delivery in a subsequent pregnancy.

Validation of the Viral Load Testing Criteria - an algorithm for targeted viral load testing in HIV-positive adults receiving antiretroviral therapy.

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 ...

Viremia copy-years and mortality among combination antiretroviral therapy-initiating HIV-positive individuals: how much viral load history is enough?

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...

An urgent need for HIV testing among men who have sex with men and transgender women in Bamako, Mali: Low awareness of HIV infection and viral suppression among those living with HIV.

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...

The accuracy of baseline viral load for predicting the efficacy of elbasvir/grazoprevir in participants with hepatitis C virus genotype 1a infection: an integrated analysis.

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)...

Mifepristone Versus Laminaria for Cervical Ripening in Midtrimester Induction

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...

Cervical Rippening With Antiprogesterone in Midtrimester Abortions

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 ...

Vaginal Progesterone Versus Cervical Cerclage for Pregnant Women With Short Cervix and History of PTL and/or MTM

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...

Quantitative HPV Genotyping in Screening of Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia in HIV-positive Patients

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...

Determining a Viral Load Threshold for Treating Cytomegalovirus (CMV)

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
