[Newsdesk] Research brief
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:15:25 +0100 | The Lancet Infectious Diseases
30 years after AIDS first emerged in the USA, the geographical source and early dissemination of HIV-1 in the human population remains controversial. A new evolutionary analysis of HIV-1 sequence data from central Africa suggests that the HIV-1 group M viruses originated in Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of the Congo) in the early 1920s and then, because the city was an important commercial transportation hub, spread across central Africa. An exponential increase in group M infections after 1960 suggests that post-independence changes in sexual behaviour in and around Kinshasa might have driven the epidemic growth of the HIV-1 group M pandemic.

A Novel Gas Chromatographic Method for Determination of Malondialdehyde from Oxidized DNA
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:43:39 +0100 | Springer protocols feed by Biochemistry
Malondialdehyde (MA) is known to form from various lipids upon oxidation as one of secondary oxidation products. Determination of MA formed from lipid peroxidation has been used to examine occurrence of oxidative damages associated with many diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, inflammation, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and AIDS as well as aging. Analysis of MA is, however, extremely difficult because it is highly reactive and readily polymerized and forming adducts with biological substances such as proteins, phospholipids, and DNA (Shibamoto, J Pharm Biomed Anal 41:12–25, 2002). Gas chromatographic method using stable derivative, 1-methylpyrazole was advanced and has been successfully used to analyze MA in various lipids and lipid-rich foods. This method was also a...

Failure of combined antiretroviral therapy intensification with maraviroc and raltegravir in chronically HIV-1 infected patients to reduce the viral reservoir: the IntensHIV randomized trial.
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 17:05:04 +0100 | AIDS Research and Therapy
CONCLUSION: We conclude that the intensification of a Protease Inhibitor regimen with Maraviroc and Raltegravir does not impact the blood proviral DNA reservoir of HIV but can decrease the cell-associated HIV RNA, the CD8 activation and has a possible impact on rectal proviral HIV DNA in some patients.

Impact of second-line antiretroviral regimens on lipid profiles in an African setting: the DART trial sub-study.
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 17:05:04 +0100 | AIDS Research and Therapy
CONCLUSION: Modest lipid elevations were observed in African patients on predominantly LPV/r + NNRTI-based second-line regimens. Routine lipid monitoring during second-line ART regimens may not be warranted in this setting but individual cardiovascular risk assessment should guide practice.

Exploring the clinical approach to the bimodal fitting of hearing aids and cochlear implants: results of an international survey.
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 16:15:12 +0100 | Acta Oto-Laryngologica
Conclusions: The results show that the fitting of a contralateral hearing aid (HA) in the non-implanted ear of cochlear implant (CI) recipients is now well established as standard clinical practice. However, there is a lack of experience in HA fitting within the CI centres and the use of published bimodal fitting procedures is poor. The HA is often not refitted after CI switch-on and this may contribute to rejection. Including a bimodal fitting prescription and process in the CI fitting software would make applying a balancing procedure easier and may increase its implementation in routine clinical practice.
