BACKGROUND Tuberculosis remains an important cause of death among patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Robust data are lacking with regard to the timing for the initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in relation to the start of antituberculosis therapy. METHODS We tested the hypothesis that the timing of ART initiation would(More)
Early (2 weeks) vs. late (8 weeks) initiation of highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) significantly enhance survival of severely immunosuppressed HIV-infected adults with newly diagnosed tuberculosis: results of the CAMELIA clinical trial François-Xavier Blanc, Thim Sok, Didier Laureillard, Laurence Borand, Claire Rekacewicz, Eric Nerrienet, Yoann(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the main causes of acid-fast bacillus sputum smear-negative pneumonia in Asian and African HIV-infected patients DESIGN AND SETTING A prospective multicenter study (ANRS 1260) of consecutive hospitalized patients in tertiary hospitals in Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangui and Dakar. INTERVENTION Use of the same clinical,(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze cases of paradoxical tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (TB-IRIS) in the CAMbodian Early versus Late Introduction of Antiretrovirals (CAMELIA) randomized trial designed to compare early (2 weeks) versus late (8 weeks) antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation after tuberculosis treatment onset in Cambodia(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify predictors of Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia (PCP) or pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in acid-fast bacillus smear-negative HIV-infected patients and to develop clinical prediction rules. DESIGN A cohort study conducted in consecutive hospitalized Asian patients. METHODS Multivariate analyses were performed on the Cambodian sample to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the impact of tuberculosis-associated immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (TB-IRIS) upon immunological recovery and the T-cell compartment after initiation of TB and antiretroviral therapy (ART). DESIGN AND METHODS We prospectively evaluated T-cell immunophenotypes by flow cytometry and cytokines by Luminex assays in a(More)
The objective of this study was to observe the prevalence of drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates in HIV associated tuberculosis co-infected patients in Phnom Penh City. The isolates of M. tuberculosis were collected during active laboratory-based surveillance. Of the 98 isolates studied, M. tuberculosis resistance to isoniazid was seen in(More)
BACKGROUND Shortening the interval between antituberculosis treatment onset and initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduces mortality in severely immunocompromised human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients with tuberculosis. A better understanding of causes and determinants of death may lead to new strategies to further enhance survival.(More)
Melioidosis has never been officially reported from Cambodia. Here we report two cases, a 58-year-old male (case 1) and a 49-year-old female (case 2) who presented with respiratory illnesses featuring multiple lung abscesses. The sputum culture of both patients, taken in the framework of a laboratory-based study on aetiologies of (sub-)acute respiratory(More)
Methods (i) 138 HIV+/TB+ patients enrolled in the CAMELIA trial (ANRS 1295-CIPRA/KH001-DAIDS-ES ID10425) in Cambodia and 36 HIV+ patients with CD4 T cells < 200/mm included (ii) NK cells repertoire analysis by immuno-staining in whole blood and, (iii) NK cells degranulation activity and cytokine production by CD107a essay with and without stimulation. After(More)
