This week, as we mined recently published journals for HIV-related research, we discovered these four items glittering in the loam:

  • Sobering findings regarding HPV vaccination and anal HPV infection in HIV-positive adults.
  • Encouraging findings regarding single-tablet E/C/F/TDF in the setting of little-studied HIV-2 infection.
  • Informative findings regarding the relationship between an HIV-positive infant's virus and its mother's.
  • Intriguing findings regarding the relative effect on HIV risk from male circumcision compared to an initial scale-up of antiretroviral access in Kenya.

Read on to drill down a little more deeply into each of these studies. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
