Thanks for tuning in to our latest review of peer-reviewed journals for HIV-related research with potential clinical implications. Our slate of study summaries this week includes newly published findings that suggest:
- Guidelines for cholesterol management appear to underestimate the potential value of statin use among people with HIV.
- In the Affordable Care Act era, viral suppression is usually maintained when people transition from Ryan White CARE Act coverage to Medicaid or Obamacare plans.
- Hepatitis C seroconversion appears to suppress CD4 count for a couple of years in people living with HIV.
- Hepatitis C reinfection is more common among HIV-positive men who have sex with men than among HIV-positive people who inject drugs.
Let's examine each of these findings in a little more detail. To beat HIV, you have to follow the science!
