  • New signs HIV-2 does ultimately lead to serious disease progression if left untreated, just at a slower rate than HIV-1.
  • A possible correlation between transient CD4 count declines and incident hepatitis C coinfection.
  • A deep dive into the global demographics of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the combination HIV treatment era.

Come along for a more detailed look at each of these newly printed study results. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
