Highlights in Infectious Disease

Short-term valacyclovir therapy does not reduce HIV acquisition risk in HSV-2 infected women

As reported in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, short-term treatment of HSV-2 infected, HIV non-infected women (n=30) with valacyclovir (1 g qd x 2 months) had no effect on cervical CD4+ T cells, dendritic cells, or pro-inflammatory cytokines, but increased CCR5 (HIV co-receptor) and CD69 (activation marker).

Chronic HCV infections are under-reported

As reported in Clinical Infectious Diseases, of 12M death certificates only one-fifth of the 0.5% of patients with HCV had HCV listed on the death certificate. Moreover, two-thirds of the patients had pre-mortem signs of chronic liver disease.

HIV viremia associated with increased risk for NHL

As reported in Modern Pathology, CDX2 expression is associated with low-grade small intestinal adenocarcinomas, decreased nodal metastases, and decreased perineural invasion, while MUC1 expression is associated with high-grade tumors, and nodular and infiltrative tumors. The CDX2+/MUC1- immunophenotype is associated with increased survival.
