Tenofovir-diphosphate (TFV-DP) in dried blood spots (DBS) is an objective long-term adherence measure but data are limited on its ability to predict virologic suppression (VS) in people on antiretrovi...
Hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) is a well-known human carcinogen and a strong oxidizer that causes severe DNA damage. However, the associations between epigenetic dysregulation and DNA damage have not be...
Gemfibrozil, a lipid-regulating pharmaceutical, has been widely used for treating dyslipidemia in humans and detected frequently in freshwater environments. Since plasma cholesterol is a precursor of ...
The most prescribed non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor efavirenz has been associated with elevated risk for dyslipidemia and hepatic steatosis in HIV-infected patients but the underlying m...
Major trauma leads to complex immune reactions, known to result in a transient immunodeficiency. The long-term consequences of severe trauma on immune function and regulation as well as its clinical i...
Raltegravir not only has a unique mechanism of action, but may also have other unique effects on suppression of viral replication, viral reservoir, and immune reconstitution in blood and o...
Efavirenz is among the preferred antiretroviral drugs for HIV-infected children. Increasing evidence shows that central nervous system side-effects in adults are more common than previousl...
To characterize the risks (safety and tolerability), effectiveness (continued viral load suppression and CD4 changes), and benefits (safety, tolerability, adherence, general satisfaction w...
To compare time to a virologic failure (first of 2 consecutive plasma HIV RNA levels greater than or equal to 200 copies/ml at or after Week 24) of each 4-drug regimen vs the 3-drug regime...
To compare the lipidomic profile in patients with HIV-1 with viral suppression changing efavirenz + emtricitabine + tenofovir (Atripla) to rilpivirine + emtricitabine + tenofovir (Eviplera...
The continuous, long-term suppression of VIRAL LOAD, generally to undetectable levels, as the result of treatment with ANTIVIRAL AGENTS.
A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
A urinary anti-infective agent effective against most gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Although sulfonamides and antibiotics are usually the agents of choice for urinary tract infections, nitrofurantoin is widely used for prophylaxis and long-term suppression.
Removal of plasma and replacement with various fluids, e.g., fresh frozen plasma, plasma protein fractions (PPF), albumin preparations, dextran solutions, saline. Used in treatment of autoimmune diseases, immune complex diseases, diseases of excess plasma factors, and other conditions.
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...
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 ...
