PPIs should work against gastrointestinal complaints, but some patients need them permanently. Researchers have set therapy guidelines for this.
Adding acetazolamide to loop diuretics in ADHF patients with volume overload improved rates of successful decongestion within 3 days.
Results point to a screening target age below 70 years, for a substantial reduction of combined endpoints of death, stroke, or myocardial infarction.
The TIME trial reported that taking antihypertensives mornings or evenings, provides identical protection against heart attack, stroke, or vascular death.
After blinded review of initial LVEF assessment, cardiologists were less likely to substantially change final reports with initial AI than sonographer assessment.
The 'polypill' dose of aspirin, ramipril, and atorvastatin prevents secondary CV events in people ≥65 years old who previously had myocardial infarction.
Focused ultrasound waves can be used to destroy tissue with millimetre precision. The innovative technology is being tested in the 'HOPE4LIVER' study.
Dapagliflozin reduced cardiovascular death risk or worsening heart failure in patients with mildly reduced and preserved ejection fraction.
Trial results show no evidence that neprilysin inhibition raised cognitive impairment risk due to brain amyloid-β accumulation, for HFmrEF/HFpEF patients.
mRNA vaccines should induce viral proteins directly in the body and stimulate the immune system to produce broadly neutralising antibodies against HIV.
Vaccine prospects were revolutionised thanks to new mRNA vaccines against COVID-19. Can this knowledge transfer for the HIV vaccine quest?
ARTs for HIV treatment are highly effective, but rebounds occurs after medicine discontinuation. This article looks at developing treatment options in this field.
In Uganda, AIDS-related mortality has dropped rapidly. Quick HIV tests and more screening options are just some of the measures helping the developing country.
Modern HIV therapies cannot yet remove the viruses from the body. Treatments that attack viral reservoirs are of great hope to eliminate HIV in a patient.
Current HIV therapy pushes the virus below detection limits. The virus can then no longer be passed on. However, HIV is very variable, so the therapeutic sword must be constantly sharpened.
Worldwide, only about 84% of people living with HIV know their viral status. New recommendations aim to reach the remaining 16%.
The suicide rate worldwide has increased by 60% in the last 45 years. A significant increase can be seen in the group of adolescents and young adults with HIV.
The WHO guidelines for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of AIDS in at-risk populations has been expanded to include viral hepatitis and STDs.
The Southern African region has the world's highest HIV infection rate in women 15-24 years old. Suicidal behaviour is common and two studies look into this.
Growing old is associated with social, financial and health problems. But if a lifelong HIV infection is added to this, ageing can often become a challenge.
