BACKGROUND Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimated by Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation based on creatinine or cystatine C may be more accurate methods especially in patients without chronic kidney disease. There is lack of data on GFR estimated by these methods in patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy. (More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to investigate the incidence of AIDS-defining cancers (ADCs) and virus-related and non-virus-related non-AIDS-defining cancers (NADCs) in HIV-infected patients compared with the general population, and to assess the risk factors associated with these malignancies. METHODS We performed a retrospective cohort study for(More)
BACKGROUND There is lack of data on the incidence of liver fibrosis (LF) progression in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) monoinfection and risk factors for LF. METHODS We performed an observational prospective study in a cohort of HIV-infected patients who had initiated highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). FIB-4 and aspartate(More)

OBJECTIVES To assess incidence, risk factors, histology, and outcome of severe hepatotoxicity (SH) during antiretroviral treatment (ART). METHODS Seven hundred fifty-five HIV-seropositive patients consecutively prescribed new ART were selected. Liver function tests were assessed at baseline, after 1 month, and every 4 months thereafter. Liver biopsy was(More)
BACKGROUND In the primary analysis of SPRING-2 at week 48, dolutegravir showed non-inferior efficacy to and similar tolerability to raltegravir in adults infected with HIV-1 and naive for antiretroviral treatment. We present the 96 week results. METHODS SPRING-2 is an ongoing phase 3, randomised, double-blind, active-controlled, non-inferiority study in(More)
The recent origin and great evolutionary potential of HIV imply that the virulence of the virus might still be changing, which could greatly affect the future of the pandemic. However, previous studies of time trends of HIV virulence have yielded conflicting results. Here we used an established methodology to assess time trends in the severity (virulence)(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to estimate the burden and direct costs of diseases in HIV-infected patients (either opportunistic illnesses or other chronic diseases) with respect to the HIV-uninfected population. These estimates will be useful for the projection of future direct costs of HIV care. PATIENTS AND METHODS A population-based study was(More)
Correlates of immune reconstitution after highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) are not completely understood, in particular as far as viro-immunological discordant responses are concerned. HIV-positive patients on stable HAART for > or = 1 year were recruited. Viro-immunological responses were categorized according to positive or negative area under(More)
Programmed cell death (or apoptosis) is a physiological process essential to the normal development and homeostatic maintenance of the immune system. The Fas/Apo-1 receptor plays a crucial role in the regulation of apoptosis, as demonstrated by lymphoproliferation in MRL-lpr/lpr mice and by the recently described autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome(More)
