Neoplasia is the second most common cause of mortality in HIV patients. The prevalence of anal cancer among men who have sex with men (MSM) has continued to increase since the introduction of antiretroviral therapy. We screened 94 HIV-infected MSM patients. We found high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) in six of the patients. The calculated(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the effectiveness of darunavir (DRV) treatment plus an optimized background regimen in 120 HIV-1 treatment-experienced patients. DESIGN Retrospective cohort, multicenter study. METHODS Adults >16 years with virological treatment failure starting therapy with a DRV-containing regimen were included. Effectiveness was evaluated as(More)
BACKGROUND Tubular dysfunction is common in HIV-infected people and detection of proteinuria is essential to identify this problem. In low-income countries, resources for detection of proteinuria using the Kidney Disease Improve Global Outcomes (KDIGO) gold standard urinary protein/creatinine ratio (uPCR) is rarely possible, and use of the protein reagent(More)
Our objective was to determine the seroprevalence of syphilis among HIV-infected patients in a tertiary care hospital in Mexico City. A cross-sectional study was developed, and 318 HIV-positive patients were evaluated from January to February 2013 at Hospital de Infectología, National Medical Center 'La Raza' (a tertiary care hospital specialising in(More)
BACKGROUND Treatments in patients with multidrug resistance often involve the use of multiple agents with partial antiviral activity and overlapping metabolic toxicities. Enfuvirtide is therefore a welcome addition to the antiretroviral management of patients with multiclass resistant virus, given the low risk of systemic toxicities and novel mechanism of(More)
BACKGROUND seroepidemiological surveys suggest that approximately 20 % of women of childbearing age are susceptible to rubella. It is necessary to detect congenital rubella cases. Our objective was to determine the frequency of perinatal infection by rubella virus (RV) in infants with congenital heart disease. METHODS prospective, cross-sectional study.(More)
INTRODUCTION Although both tipranavir (TPV) and darunavir (DRV) represent important options for the management of patients with multi-protease inhibitor (PI)-resistant human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), currently there are no studies comparing the effectiveness and safety of these two drugs in the Mexican population. The aim of this study was to compare(More)
BACKGROUND Members of the Enterobacteriaceae family are common agents of nosocomial infections. Intestinal colonization by these microorganisms represents a major step in the development of systemic infection. Extended-spectrum b-lactamase-producing bacteria are usually associated with outbreaks, but endemic infections are common in intensive care units. (More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The most common HBV genotypes in HIV-coinfected patients in Mexico are H and G; the response to treatment for these genotypes is unknown. The aim of the study was to examine the effectiveness of intensification with pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) alfa-2a or alfa-2b in HBV/HIV-coinfected patients treated with a tenofovir/emtricitabine(More)
