April 18, 2019: lamivudine/raltegravir for PrEP; feminizing hormone may impact PrEP efficacy; why TAF has a better renal profile than TDF; the role of internet dating in HIV incidence trends.
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.
Internalized HIV stigma, depression, and adherence in women; what “internalized HIV stigma” actually means; tenofovir-containing gel and genital herpes prevention; the neurocognitive effects of cerebrospinal HIV escape.
E/C/F/TAF viability for dialysis patients; TAF safety following renal damage; mental health needs for American Indians; parenting desires of people with HIV.
HIV-positive donor, HIV-negative recipient; continuum of care after incarceration in U.S.; reduced bone mineral density among men with HIV under 50; discouraging anti-inflammatory findings for an antiplatelet agent.
2017 may be winding down, but even as the year wanes, we’ve seen significant new HIV research featured in major scientific conferences in the U.S. and Europe. IDWeek, most recently held in San Diego in early October 2017, is an annual infectious disease...
Twice-daily tenofovir alafenamide plus rifampicin provided similar exposures to once-daily TAF in a pharmacokinetic study. This strategy might be a suitable option for people with HIV/TB coinfection.
The findings could inform the debate on the merits of TDF, which is available in many regions as a less-costly generic, versus the more recently approved prodrug tenofovir alafenamide (TAF).
On June 8, 2017, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first generic version of emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate tablets, 200 mg/300 mg.
Tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) and its metabolite tenofovir (TFV) exposures are slightly higher in children aged 6-12 years compared with adults.
