Thanks for joining us as we examine the latest in peer-reviewed journal studies exploring HIV-related clinical science. In this week's highlighted set of recently published studies with potential clinical relevance for HIV care providers, we find:
- An association between frailty and chronic disease development among people with HIV over age 50.
- Affirmation of Atripla's long-term efficacy in parts of the world that still rely on it -- but with some caveats.
- Signs that overly restrictive eligibility criteria for hepatitis C treatment yield more lives lost in the long run.
- A signal that nicotine is metabolized faster than normal among people living with HIV.
Come on in as we peer a little more deeply into each of these findings. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
