Starting five-drug antiretroviral therapy (ART) very early did not quell HIV-associated inflammation in a randomized comparison with standard ART.
The rise of the internet and social media have given a new life to AIDS denialism in Russia.
Most animal and test-tube models for eliminating latent reservoirs of HIV -- the major impediment to an HIV cure -- suggest that simply trying to awaken the latent virus and using standard antiretroviral therapy will not be enough to completely eradi...
A newer pneumococcal vaccine that aims to protect against pneumonia and other serious pneumococcal diseases stirred up immune system responses in HIV-positive adults who had received an earlier version of the vaccine.
Our immune systems offer a very rapid, non-specific first line of defense against invading viruses. Researchers recently examined the role of one of these early defenses in the control of HIV.
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."
Not all viewpoints have equal value, and some viewpoints have no place in a reputable setting, says Kenneth Witwer, as HIV/AIDS denialism remains dangerous to the extent it is tolerated in credible forums.
Biomarkers of immune exhaustion were associated with how long a patient was able to control HIV after treatment was interrupted, according to a study presented at CROI 2015.
When cells of the immune system encounter invading germs they can become activated and enter into a heightened state of alert. Such cells help to marshal the immune system against germs.
Researchers at the University of Rome (Italy) and in Atlanta (U.S.) have proposed that one potential method for helping to reduce excess levels of inflammation and dampen immune activation in HIV-positive people is exercise.
