Early-capture HIV study allows for characterization of acute infection period

Acute HIV infection (AHI) contributes significantly to HIV transmission and may be important for intervention strategies seeking to reduce incidence and achieve a functional cure. In a study by the U.S. Military HIV Research Program (MHRP), Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, scientists enrolled and intensively followed a cohort of high-risk individuals, tracking their HIV status and characterizing the disease through the acute stages of HIV infection.

HIV and drug resistance

A recent study found more resistance to the antiretroviral medicine tenofovir than had previously been reported, with 20% resistance to tenofovir in patients with treatment failure in Europe and over 50% resistance in patients with treatment failure in sub-Saharan Africa... The study underlines the importance of rapidly identifying treatment failure through routine measurement of viral load suppression—this is the basis of the third pillar of UNAIDS’ 90–90–90 treatment target, that 90% of people accessing HIV treatment have suppressed viral loads.

Even people who are adherent to their medication regimens may experience occasional “blips” in their viral loads, experience viral rebound or maintain a steady, if low, viral load above undetectable levels. To understand why some people struggle to achieve or remain undetectable, we spoke with Keith Henry, MD, an HIV specialist at Hennepin County Medical Center who has more than 25 years of experience caring for people with HIV.
