Mutational tug of war over HIV's disease-inducing potential

A study from Emory AIDS researchers shows how the expected disease severity when someone is newly infected by HIV reflects a balance between the virus' invisibility to the host's immune system and its ability to reproduce.

HIV entry mechanism into immune cell nucleus revealed

How does HIV enter the nucleus of immune cells when it is bigger than the pores in its walls? New research shows it hijacks a protein to enlarge the pores.

New study reveals how HIV enters cell nucleus

Scientists have solved a mystery that has long baffled HIV researchers: How does HIV manage to enter the nucleus of immune system cells? The discovery could lead to effective new drugs to treat HIV/AIDS.

WHO confirms antiretroviral therapy reduces the risk of life-threatening HIV-related infections

Adults and children with HIV who start antiretroviral therapy (ART) as early as possible reduce their risk of developing serious HIV-related infections, according to new findings published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases on 15 June 2016.

Men With HIV Age Faster According to DNA Methylation Study

Infection with HIV may be associated with accelerated cellular aging, according to a new study in which researchers analyzed DNA methylation patterns of men with HIV infection. The study provides a possible explanation for why people with HIV who take antiretroviral medications often develop age-related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, bone fractures, and renal failure years earlier than those who are uninfected.

Scientists map the global spread of HIV – through the Western world and beyond – for the first time

Scientists have mapped the spread of the HIV virus around the globe after it reached the United States in the early 1970s. Their study finds that HIV travelled from the US to Western Europe on a number of occasions, whereas Central and Eastern Europe remained isolated for the most part of the early epidemic. The study describes the global spread of HIV-1 subtype B, but not of other subtypes.

Can We Say Goodbye to the Word AIDS?

What do we lose by freeing ourselves from the word AIDS—or, what might we have to gain? It’s a question provoked by advances in HIV treatment and care and changes in the way that people live with and experience HIV and AIDS.

HIV Spreads Through the Body Much Faster Than Previously Thought

HIV spreads much more rapidly through the body after initial infection than previously believed, apparently causing immediate immune reactions that enable its replication. Publishing their findings in the journal Cell, researchers vaginally exposed 44 rhesus monkeys to SIV, HIV’s simian cousin, and analyzed the animals during the first few days post-infection.

HIV infection prematurely ages humans by an average of 5 years

Thanks to combination antiretroviral therapy, many people with HIV can be expected to live decades after being infected. Yet doctors have observed that these patients often show signs of premature aging. Now a study published April 21 in Molecular Cell has applied a highly accurate biomarker to measure just how much HIV infection ages people at the biological level -- an average of almost 5 years.

New research explains why HIV is not cleared by the immune system

Scientists have identified a human (host) protein that weakens the immune response to HIV and other viruses. The findings have important implications for improving HIV antiviral therapies, creating effective viral vaccines, and advance a new approach to treat cancer.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
