HIV-positive people with a higher viral load over a longer period appear more likely to develop hepatocellular carcinoma.
A study finds that CD4 cells decline after people with HIV contract hepatitis C.
Receiving viral load results within hours as opposed to weeks was linked to higher rates of HIV suppression and retention in medical care.
Regardless of our viral loads, let’s make sure we all stand together and that stigma lost for some isn’t just stigma transferred to others...
Our March issue is dedicated to the idea of Undetectable Equals Untransmittable, or U=U.
Researchers gave the antibody treatment to those with multidrug-resistant HIV along with an optimized antiretroviral regimen.
This holds true regardless of how long they’ve had HIV or whether they’re on antiretrovirals.
The tests are needed to determine whether a person’s HIV meds are working.
“Did you know that someone living with HIV can have sex with HIV-negative people, without the risk of passing it on?”
Being coinfected with hepatitis C and having a higher HIV viral load are also associated with such a risk according to a recent study.
This finding is from a study of those with viral loads above 1,500 in which a small proportion reported sex posing a risk of transmission.
Roscoe Boyd, Founding Member of the U=U Steering Committee, shares how the good news changed his life
Youths on HIV meds may episodically develop a significant risk of transmitting the virus.
The CDC estimates that of the 1.1 million U.S. residents living with HIV in 2014, 49 percent had an undetectable viral load.
There’s effectively no risk of transmission from an HIV-positive partner to an HIV-negative partner when the virus is fully suppressed.
