New research involving veterans highlights the need to monitor HIV-positive patients for cardiovascular risk.
The global increase in sexually transmitted infections was a major focus of the CROI 2019 meeting in Seattle, Washington.
A pooled analysis presented at CROI 2019 showed fewer kidney and bone density issues with tenofovir alafenamide in cisgender women than were found with the older formulation.
A CROI 2019 study suggests the dynamics of HIV proliferation in the viral reservoir might explain why viral load sometimes fails to become undetectable, especially when adherence is good.
Phase 3 Results With Dual Therapy Cabotegravir/Rilpivirine Long-Acting Injections: ATLAS and FLAIR Studies
Two oral presentations at CROI 2019 showed that dual therapy with long-acting monthly injections resulted in very low levels of virological failure with high participant preference for injections compared to oral combinations.
Dolutegravir More Effective Than Efavirenz at Achieving Viral Suppression During Late-Term Pregnancy, New Study Shows

UK Patient Likely to Be the Second Person Cured of HIV: Two Further Cases at CROI 2019 of HIV Remission After Allogenic Stem Cell Transplants
The procedure used in this case was similar to that used in the only previously confirmed HIV cure case, "Berlin patient" Timothy Ray Brown, albeit with a somewhat less aggressive approach.
A cellphone attachment that detects HIV RNA; HIV-2 does indeed often progress to AIDS; CD4 count declines and incident hepatitis C coinfection; the global demographics of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The rise of the internet and social media have given a new life to AIDS denialism in Russia.
Denial of the link between HIV and AIDS led to more than 330,000 premature deaths in South Africa. How should scientists respond? The answer could come from a branch of psychology known as "inoculation theory."
