Science Validates Undetectable = Untransmittable HIV Prevention Message

Image
People living with HIV whose virus is completely, durably suppressed by treatment will not sexually transmit the virus to an HIV-negative partner, according to NIAID Director Anthony S Fauci, M.D. The success of this HIV prevention strategy is contingent on achieving and maintaining an undetectable viral load—the amount of HIV genetic material in the blood—by taking medication to treat HIV daily as directed.
Dr. Fauci delivered these remarks at the July 22 U=U 2018: Celebrate, Activate and Implement! meeting held prior to the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) in Amsterdam. Over the past two years, a grassroots movement has emerged to promote the value of HIV treatment as prevention through the “Undetectable = Untransmittable” campaign, also known as U=U. In his keynote lecture titled “U=U: Science and Policy,” Dr. Fauci traced the science behind the U=U message from early observational studies to more recent, large clinical trials. For nearly two decades, scientists have rec…

Trial of ‘kick and kill’ approach to HIV cure leaves puzzles to be solved

Image
Researchers have reported the results of the first randomized clinical trial to test a novel strategy.
The approach involves waking up and then killing the ‘sleeping’ HIV that is hiding in the body using an experimental approach known as ‘kick and kill’. Led by Imperial College London, the University of OxfordMRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL, and the University of Cambridge, the RIVER study aimed to improve on current care by eradicating HIV from the body, which would represent a major step forward in the search for a cure. The RIVER study, which ran from 2015 to 2018 in London and Brighton, tested the ‘kick and kill’ approach in 60 men recently diagnosed with HIV and who had the virus under control by taking ART.Although investigators found no difference in effect between those participants who received the active ‘kick and kill’ therapy and those who had standard treatment, they say the trial paves the way for testing different combinations of therapies to tackle the HIV that persists…

Nelson Mandela Contribution towards AIDS

Image
In his last years, progressively delicate however he was, Nelson Mandela wound up one of the world's most critical and powerful campaigners against HIV/Aids. It was a troublesome issue to go up against in light of the fact that it pitched him into restriction with his own particular government. Trusting that open encounter would be unhelpful, he picked his words precisely; they were no less intense for that. 
By 2000, South Africa was the most exceedingly terrible influenced nation on the planet, with a HIV pervasiveness rate among 15-to 49-year-old of 24.5%: in excess of 4 million individuals, and rising quick. 
Things had got to this pass on Mandela's watch. As right on time as 1992, in any case, he had given a discourse despising the social conditions that prompted the simple spread of Aids, from neediness and congestion to the low status of ladies and a transient work framework that implied men were far from home for quite a long time and frequented sex specialists. He talke…
