Cardiac effects of in-utero exposure to antiretroviral therapy in HIV-uninfected children born to HIV-infected mothers
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 19:17:33 +0100 | AIDS
Conclusion:There was no evidence of significant cardiac toxicity of perinatal combination antiretroviral therapy exposure in HEU children. Subclinical differences in left ventricular structure and function with specific in-utero antiretroviral exposures indicate the need for a longitudinal cardiac study in HEU children to assess long-term cardiac risk and cardiac monitoring recommendations.

Age-specific and sex-specific weight gain norms to monitor antiretroviral therapy in children in low-income and middle-income countries
Thu, 27 Nov 2014 19:17:33 +0100 | AIDS
Background:Viral load and CD4% are often not available in resource-limited settings for monitoring children's responses to antiretroviral therapy (ART). We aimed to construct normative curves for weight gain at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months following initiation of ART in children, and to assess the association between poor weight gain and subsequent responses to ART.

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 19:17:32 +0100 | AIDS
Conclusion:cART significantly reduced cervical HPV infection. This effect was dependent on the duration of exposure to cART and is the mechanism by which cART may improve the outcome of dysplasia in HIV-infected women. (Source: AIDS)
