Evolution of protease inhibitor resistance in HIV-1-infected patients failing protease inhibitor monotherapy as second-line therapy in low-income countries: an observational analysis within the EARNEST randomised trial.
Limited viral load (VL) testing in HIV-infected individuals on treatment in low-income countries often results in late detection of treatment failure. The impact of remaining on failing second-line, protease inhibitor (PI) containing regimens is unclear.
HIV-tuberculosis (TB) co-infection remains an important cause of mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. Clinical trials have reported early (within 2 weeks of TB therapy) antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduces mortality among HIV-TB co-infected research participants with low CD4 counts, but this has not been consistently observed. We aimed to evaluate the current WHO recommendations for ART in HIV-TB co-infected patients on mortality in routine clinical settings.
Patients with active ulcerative colitis (UC) failing conventional therapies are in need of rescue strategies. Due to the fact that accepted step-up therapy with biologicals is expensive and sometimes unavailable, alternative therapies are warranted. Methotrexate (MTX) and thioguanine (TG) have both been suggested as alternative maintenance strategies in conventional thiopurine failing UC patients. In this multicenter database study, we compared safety and effectiveness (drug-survival) of MTX and TG in UC pa...
Integrase strand transfer inhibitors (INSTIs) are recommended by international guidelines as first-line therapy in antiretroviral-naive and -experienced HIV-1-infected patients.
Despite high response rates associated to hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment, no protective immunity is acquired, allowing for reinfection and continued infectiousness. Distinguishing between relapse and reinfection is crucial for patient counselling and to choose the most appropriate retreatment. Here, refined phylogenetic analysis using multiple genes served to assess genotype and reinfection for 53 patients for whom the virus was sampled before start of therapy and at time of sustained virological respons...
The failing Fontan circulation can be challenging to support with ventricular assist devices (VAD) mostly due to the variety of causes of failure, some of which cannot be addressed by VAD therapy alone. A new VAD, the HeartMate 3, was recently approved for use in adults in the United States and is now widely available with excellent survival in two-ventricle patients. We report the first successful implantation of the HeartMate 3 in a 22-year-old male with a failing Fontan circulation and the possible benef...
Background Most endocrinologists encounter patients who are dissatisfied with their current hypothyroidism therapy and request combination therapy with either liothyronine or thyroid extract. Methods A survey of American Thyroid Association members was conducted in 2017. Respondents were presented with thirteen scenarios describing patients with hypothyroidism and asked to choose among 6 therapeutic options. The index patient was satisfied taking levothyroxine therapy. Twelve variations introduced parameter...
Methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) is associated with improved virologic outcomes, yet no studies have explored factors associated with viral suppression in HIV-infected patients on MMT. Given the critical role of sustained viral suppression in maximizing benefits of antiretroviral therapy (ART), we sought to assess factors associated with viral suppression in patients stabilized on MMT.
Cancer at various stages and therapy is observed in about 15% of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Current guidelines for invasive and conservative treatment of ACS cannot be applied to all patients with cancer. The choice of antiplatelet and anticoagulant drugs should be individualized with clopidogrel as a key P2Y12 inhibitor in this population. Major challenges of therapy in patients with ACS and cancer include limitations for the use of the recommended antithrombotic therapy (particularly in ...
Lung cancer is a highly invasive and prevalent disease with ineffective first-line treatment and remains the leading cause of cancer death in men and women. Despite the improvements in diagnosis and therapy, the prognosis and outcome of lung cancer patients is still poor. This could be associated with the lack of effective first-line oncology drugs, formation of resistant tumors and non-optimal administration route. Therefore, the repurposing of existing drugs currently used for different indications and th...
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are one of the main causes of morbimortality in HIV-infected patients on suppressive antiretroviral therapy. The objective of this work was to evaluate the role of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and CVDs occurrence in HIV-infected patients. Additionally, the functional consequences of carrying these SNPs were analyzed.
The GO-MORE study was an open-label, multinational, prospective study that investigated the efficacy and safety of adding golimumab to synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (sDMARDs) in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
In HIV-1 infected patients blood CD4 T lymphocytes could be a valuable target to analyze drug resistance mutations (DRM) selected over the course of the infection. However, detection of viral resistance mutations in cellular DNA by standard genotype resistance techniques (SGRT) is suboptimal. Whole blood DNA (wbDNA) from 12 HIV-1 infected patients on ART was studied by Single Genome Sequencing (SGS) and 8 of them also by Ultradeep pyrosequencing (UDP). Results were compared with contemporary and historical ...
: Improved survival among HIV-1 infected individuals with the advent of antiretroviral therapy has clearly led to a greater prevalence of non-infectious complications. One of the most devastating sequelae in these individuals is the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Various epidemiological studies suggest a worse survival of HIV-PAH patients when compared to other forms of PAH. Given that only a subset and not all HIV-infected individuals develop HIV-PAH, suggests that an additional seco...
New drugs for treating hepatitis C have considerably increased the probability of being cured. Treatment uptake, however, is still low. The objectives of this study were to analyse the impact of initiatives that may increase the proportion of infected people on treatment and interventions aimed at reducing the incidence of new infection among people who inject drugs. A compartmental model for Norway was used to simulate hepatitis C and related complications. We analysed two different screening initiatives a...
Up-Titration Strategy After DPP-4 Inhibitor-Based Oral Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial Shifting to a Single-Dose GLP-1 Enhancer Versus Adding a Variable Basal Insulin Algorithm.
It is unclear whether adding basal insulin or enhancing incretin signaling with a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA) is more effective as an up-titration strategy after dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (DPP-4i)-based oral antidiabetic drug (OAD) therapy. GLP-1RAs can be injected without dose adjustment, unlike basal insulin. Our objective was to examine the efficacy of changing patients inadequately controlled with oral DPP-4i-based OAD therapy to injectable GLP-1RA and discontinuing the DPP...
Chronic opioid therapy (COT) is common in people living with HIV (PLHIV), but not well studied. We assessed opioid risk behaviors, perceptions of risk, opioid monitoring and associated Current Opioid Misuse Measure (COMM™) scores of PLHIV on COT.
After the introduction of antiretroviral therapy (ART), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has become a chronic controllable disease. For this reason, chronic conditions related to both HIV infection and senescence, such as chronic periodontitis (CP) need to be studied. This study investigated the impact of non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) on clinical and immunological features of CP, and on oral colonization by Candida spp. in HIV-infected and non-HIV-infected individuals.
The lipid accumulation product (LAP) index is an emerging cardiovascular risk marker. We aimed to assess the accuracy of this index as a marker of cardiovascular risk in HIV-infected patients. A cross-sectional study of 133 HIV-infected patients on antiretroviral drugs and 20 non-infected controls was conducted at the outpatient clinic of a referral center of infectious and parasitic diseases. Evaluations included LAP index, homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) index, anthropometric measurements, blood press...
Hepatitis C virus follows a quasispecies dynamics in infected hosts, and this influences its biology, how the virus diversifies into several genotypes and many subtypes, and how viral populations respond to antiviral therapies. Despite current antiviral combinations being able to cure a great porcentage of HCV-infected patients, the presence of resistance-associated substitutions diminishes the success of antiviral therapies, which is a main concern in the re-treatment of DAA-treated patients. Current metho...
African Americans are disproportionately affected by both HIV and hypertension. Failure to modify risk factors for cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease such as hypertension among HIV-infected patients may attenuate the benefits conferred by combination antiretroviral therapy. In the general population, African Americans with hypertension are less likely to have controlled blood pressure than whites. However, racial differences in blood pressure control among HIV-infected patients are not well s...
Patients with diabetes type 2 have an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and commonly use combination therapy consisting of the anti-diabetic drug metformin and a cholesterol-lowering statin. However, both drugs act on glucose and lipid metabolism which could lead to adverse effects when used in combination as compared to monotherapy. In this review, the proposed molecular mechanisms of action of statin and metformin therapy in patients with diabetes and dyslipidemia are critically assessed, and a hy...
Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is an otological emergency of unknown etiology. Recent reports showed that antioxidant drugs can benefit patients with SSNHL. This study attempted to evaluate the effect of adding antioxidant vitamins as an adjuvant therapy alongside with corticosteroids.
Family interventions for eating disorders are often recommended for the treatment of children and adolescents. Treatment studies and a range of treatment guidelines now recommend family-based treatment (FBT) for adolescents with AN and bulimia nervosa. The current report focused on studies that have been conducted over the past 2 years, most of them aimed at augmenting or improving outcomes using a range of new family approaches or adding other forms of therapy to standard FBT.
