The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP) is an HIV surveillance system that provides national estimates of HIV-related behaviors and clinical outcomes. When first implemented, MMP excluded persons living ...
Infectious disease outbreaks play an important role in global morbidity and mortality. Real-time epidemic forecasting provides an opportunity to predict geographic disease spread as well as case count...
Data to care (D2C) is an effective strategy using HIV surveillance data to link/relink persons living with HIV into medical care. However, some appearing to be not in care (NIC) report being in care (...
Data to care (D2C) is a public health strategy that uses HIV surveillance and other data to identify persons in need of HIV medical care. The Medical Monitoring Project (MMP), which uses similar metho...
Data to Care (D2C) is a strategy for using health departments' HIV surveillance data (HIV viral load and CD4 laboratory reports) to identify and re-engage not-in-care persons with HIV. In the current ...
The objective of this study is to explore the impact of initiation of ART with different regimens in naïve MSM (in the setting of acute and chronic HIV-infection) on the probability of tr...
Multicenter observational survey of the presence of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) on trans vaginal ultrasound (TVUS) probes, and of the behavior of professionals during US examination and pr...
Rationale: Since January 2014 the Dutch screening programme for bowel cancer has been implemented. Screening will increase the demand for surveillance. Although patients in whom adenomas h...
Hypervirulent and multidrug-resistant infections are associated with significant health care costs, substantial morbidity and mortality. Therefore, the rapid recognition of outbreaks and t...
In persons with SCI, because of inherent considerations, the use of mechanical stimulation has not bee studied to determine improvement in bone mass. To achieve maximum transmission of th...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
The molecular designing of drugs for specific purposes (such as DNA-binding, enzyme inhibition, anti-cancer efficacy, etc.) based on knowledge of molecular properties such as activity of functional groups, molecular geometry, and electronic structure, and also on information cataloged on analogous molecules. Drug design is generally computer-assisted molecular modeling and does not include pharmacokinetics, dosage analysis, or drug administration analysis.
Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.
The development and application of computational models of human pathophysiology that are individualized to patient-specific data.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Human Immuno Deficiency Virus (HIV)
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the causative agent of AIDS. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus, more commonly known as HIV, is a member of the lentivirus sub-set of the retrovirus family of pathogens. It causes AIDS, or Acquired Immuno Deficiency Sy...
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 ...
