In a proof-of-principle study, researchers at Johns Hopkins report that a certain liver immune cell called a macrophage contains only defective or inert HIV-1 copies, and aren't likely to restart infection on their own in HIV-1-infected people on long-term antiretroviral therapy (ART).
Medical researchers demonstrate that administering broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAb) designed to target HIV in combination with agents that stimulate the innate immune system delayed viral rebound following discontinuation of ART in monkeys. The findings suggest that this two-pronged approach represents a potential strategy for targeting the viral reservoir.
A new study by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine suggests that experiences of sexual harassment and sexual assault could have a significant impact on the physical and mental health of midlife women. Study results, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, also will be presented at the North American Menopause Society meeting.
In most industry-funded trials reported in high impact medical journals, all aspects of the trial involved the industry funder, finds a study published by The BMJ. The results show that, although both funder and academic authors were involved in the design, conduct, and reporting of most trials, few industry-funded trials were completely independently conducted by academics, and sometimes industry involvement was downplayed or omitted.
Bartonella are bacteria that cause endocarditis, a potentially life-threatening illness in humans and domestic animals. In Latin America, common vampire bats (Desmodus rotundus) are frequently infected by Bartonella, and their subsistence on blood creates a risk for bacterial transmission from bats to humans and livestock.
A study published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases by Daniel Becker at Montana State University in Bozemandistributed found Bartonella infections in vampire bats are highly prevalent in Peru and Belize, and that Bartonella genotypes are distributed widely, rather than clustered geographically.
People with the chronic lung disease known as COPD often get chest CT scans so that doctors can look inside their lungs. A new study is advising physicians to also take a careful look at the heart while they're at it.
Attendance at a nursery/crèche staffed by professionals may be linked to better psychological development than being looked after by family/friends or a childminder in early childhood, suggests new research published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.
Each year, millions of people worldwide suffer from potentially fatal infectious diseases that often leave survivors facing a lifetime of related health problems. But what if drugs against such diseases already existed but nobody knew it?
Contrary to popular belief, the brain is not a computer. However, brains do, in their own way, compute. They integrate informational inputs to generate outputs, including behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.
A new guideline to help clinicians manage malignant pleural effusions (MPEs) has been developed by the American Thoracic Society, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the Society of Thoracic Radiology. The clinical practice guideline is published online in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
