  • PrEP data links anti-HIV immune response to reduce chance of infection

    "The rigor of the placebo-controlled iPrEx trial gave us access to the necessary data and specimens to address that question. What we found was what people have been looking for, for a long time - a correlation between future infection risk and a measureable immune response."

  • A gay’s guide to undetectable

    Undetectable Viral Load. It’s a phrase you might have heard a bit recently, with an increased focus on educating HIV positive and negative gay men about what it is, and how it can prevent the spread of HIV. For something that’s been around since 1996 (the same year the Spice Girls released Wannabe, for context) it’s strange we’ve only recently embraced Undetectable Viral Load (UVL) – but HIV is a demanding beast that science, research, and community opinion chases to keep up with. What “undetectable” means to you depends entirely on your HIV status, your sexual behaviour, and your definition of risk. With that in mind, let’s unload…

  • Study: Give ARVs After Male Circumcision

    Male circumcision has been proven to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa. But a new study shows that in the short-term, the surgical technique could actually increase the risk of infection for female partners unless precautions are taken. The researchers therefore recommended that men be placed on antiretroviral therapy at the time of circumcision.

  • Still refusing to date HIV+ guys? Here’s why you could be putting your health at risk

    Matthew Hodson, of UK-based gay men’s health charity, GMFA, explains why arguments for not having sex with gay men who are HIV positive make little sense – and could actually pose a danger for those who are HIV negative

  • HIV prevention within serodiscordant couples: A changing paradigm

    Serodiscordant couples (where one partner is HIV negative and the other is HIV positive) are often thought to be at “high risk” of HIV transmission. However, new understandings of the biology of HIV transmission and the emergence of new HIV prevention options mean that the HIV transmission risk within these couples can be reduced to very low, even negligible levels.

  • Vatican adopts HIV/AIDS treatment model developed in BC

    Dr. Montaner said he had a “brief and very pleasant” meeting with the Pope during a “greeting line” at the Vatican on March 11. He also spent several hours with the Catholic church’s equivalent of a minister of health and a minister of justice, who plan to use his method, called treatment as prevention (TasP), in a pilot program that could involve 140,000 patients in Tanzania.

  • The State of HIV/AIDS Science and Treatment Literacy in the HIV/AIDS Workforce

    This survey yields some disturbing findings. Overall, the HIV science and treatment knowledge of the HIV/AIDS workforce is far too low. In many cases, people working in HIV/AIDS appear to doubt the science behind breakthrough biomedical tools for HIV prevention, and far too many members of the workforce are not familiar with many of the bio-medical interventions that will play a critical role in ending the epidemic.
