The Link Between Protease Inhibitors and Cancer

A large, multinational study published in JAIDS reports an increased risk of some cancers for people taking protease inhibitor-based combination antiretroviral therapy (PI-based cART) compared to non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor-based cART (NNRTI-based cART). While any successful cART is known to decrease the risk of “AIDS-defining” cancers such as Kaposi sarcoma, the relationship between cART and other cancers has not been well understood.

Researchers develop new model to study why some HPV infections go away and others progress

For people infected with the human papilloma virus (HPV), the likelihood of clearing the infection and avoiding HPV-related cancer may depend less on the body's disease-fighting arsenal than has been generally assumed. A new study finds that the body's ability to defeat the virus may be largely due to unpredictable division patterns in HPV-infected stem cells, rather than the strength of the person's immune response.
