Realizing the Potential of Treatment as Prevention: Global ART Policy and Treatment Coverage
Mon, 29 Sep 2014 22:08:38 +0100 | Current HIV/AIDS Reports
This article reviews the antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation criteria from published national guidelines for 94 countries (representing 86 % of global HIV burden) and compares them with the 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) ART guidelines. As of 31st of July 2014, 19 countries have adopted the WHO-recommended CD4 eligibility criteria of ≤500 cells/mm3, while seven have opted to treat irrespective of CD4 cell count (“test and treat”). Together, these 26 countries represent 27 % of 2013 global HIV burden. Additionally, test and treat is recommended for selected groups of HIV-positive individuals, namely, (a) people with tuberculosis in 58 countries, (b) pregnant women in 42 countries, (c) people with liver disease due to hepatitis B co-infection in 52 countries, (d) serodiscor...

[FrontPageAfrica]"When the patients come early, and they are put on this medication, they recover within three to five days. This medication is not specifically for HIV/AIDS, I want this to be clear; but the Anti Retrovirus agent that is used to treat other virus illnesses like hepatitis 'B'. But it is one of those medications that are combined with two or three other medications to treat HIV/AIDS, so it should not really be called an HIV/AIDS drugs." - Dr. G.

The collagen triple helix repeat containing 1 facilitates hepatitis B virus‐associated hepatocellular carcinoma progression by regulating multiple cellular factors and signal cascades
Sat, 27 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Molecular Carcinogenesis
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is one of the major causes of acute and chronic liver diseases, fulminant hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). HCC accounts for more than 85% of primary liver cancers and is the seventh most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer‐related deaths. However, the mechanism by which HBV induces HCC is largely unknown. Collagen triple helixes repeat containing 1 (CTHRC1) is a secreted protein and has characteristics of a circulating hormone with potentially broad implications for cell metabolism and physiology. CTHRC1 is associated with human cancers, but its effect on HCC is unknown. Here, we revealed that CTHRC1 expression is highly correlated with HCC progression in HBV‐infected patients, and demonstrated that HBV stimulat...

Effect of pre-analytical variables on coagulation tests in hepatitis B patients
Fri, 26 Sep 2014 11:23:06 +0100 | Blood Coagulation and Fibrinolysis
To determine the effects of various pre-analytical variables on the values of activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), D-dimers, fibrinogen (Fbg), prothrombin time (PT) and thrombin time (TT). Samples from 120 hepatitis B patients were divided into three groups based on storage time (0–24 h), mechanical agitation and separation into plasma. In all groups, samples were stored at room temperature and 4°C. The percentage changes compared to the baseline were calculated. Clinically relevant differences were defined as a more than 10% change. If less than 25% samples showed relevant differences, the effect of the pre-analytical variable was considered moderate; if more than 25% of samples showed relevant differences, the effect was deemed large. Clinically relevant differences in APTT...
