Another week, another trove of research to dive through for findings of relevance to the HIV workforce. Here's what we found in our exploration of recently published studies this time around:

  • A look at the rising tide of syphilis diagnoses among people living with HIV in the U.S.
  • Reassuring data regarding first-line HIV treatment using a protease inhibitor-based, single-tablet regimen known as D/C/F/TAF.
  • A peculiar finding on reduced likelihood of cancer treatment among Americans who are around retirement age.
  • A deep dive into the mechanisms underlying poor flu vaccine response among older people living with HIV.

We've got more on each of these studies in the words ahead. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
