Articles tagged as "HIV This Month 2016 #09 - September 2016"

Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the ninth issue of HIV this month in 2016! 

Nonprogressing HIV-infected children share fundamental immunological features of nonpathogenic SIV infection by Maximilian Muenchhoff et al. in Science Translational Medicine is a an interesting research article that describes exciting findings of a cohort of pediatric HIV patients who have normal CD4 T cell counts, despite high viremia and lack of antiviral treatment. Prof Goulder, one of the research authors is quoted saying  "We may be identifying an entirely new pathway by studying kids that in the longer term could be translated to new treatments for all HIV infected people." 

You may recall that in August, we drew your attention to Chelsea Polis' et al. Update on hormonal contraception and HIV risk in women, 2016. We now have this specific article featured this month. We hope that in future more definitive research results will enable to provide more definitive guidance to providers in terms of DMPA use.

Enjoy reading this issue!
