Mounting evidence has revealed pathological interactions between HIV and malaria in dually infected patients, but the public health implications of the interplay have remained unclear. A transient almost one-log elevation in HIV viral load occurs during febrile malaria episodes; in addition, susceptibility to malaria is enhanced in HIV-infected patients. A mathematical model applied to a setting in Kenya with an adult population of roughly 200,000 estimated that, since 1980, the disease… Expand
A mathematical model of HIV and malaria co-infection in sub-Saharan Africa.
TLDR
A system of differential equations linking the host-vector system of malaria with co-infection with HIV is introduced and the HIV-induced increase in susceptibility to malaria infection has marginal effect on the new cases of HIV and malaria but increases the number of new cases the dual HIV-malaria infection. Expand
HIV and malaria.
TLDR
HIV and malaria should be considered together as part of healthcare programs for both diseases in countries where their co-presence favors an interaction with important clinical consequences. Expand
Malaria and Hiv in Adults: when the Parasite Runs into the Virus
TLDR
Consulting HIV-infected international travelers and physicians specialized in HIV care and travel medicine should prescribe an adequate chemoprophylaxis in patients travelling towards malaria endemic areas and pay attention on interactions between antiretrovirals and antimalarial prophylaxis drugs in order to prevent clinical complications of this co-infection. Expand
HIV and malaria co-infection: interactions and consequences of chemotherapy.
TLDR
Recent findings on the impact of HIV/AIDS and malaria co-infection and the possible roles of chemotherapy in improving the treatment of these diseases are discussed. Expand
The Impact of HIV Coinfection on Cerebral Malaria Pathogenesis.
TLDR
Clinical and basic science studies pertaining to HIV and malaria coinfection and cerebral malaria in particular are reviewed in order to highlight the likely role HIV plays in exacerbating cerebral malaria pathogenesis. Expand
HIV-malaria interactions in North-East India: A prospective cohort study
TLDR
The study showed no significant increase in HIV viral load in malaria cases and there was 100 per cent adequate clinical and parasitological response (ACPR) after treating with artemisinin based combination therapy (ACT) both in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected P. falciparum malaria-positive individuals. Expand
Malaria and HIV: a silent alliance.
TLDR
For the first time, it is shown that, according to the model, transient but repeatedly elevated HIV viral loads due to recurrent co-infections, such as malaria, can also influence and increase HIV prevalence. Expand
Review: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Malaria Interaction in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Collision of Two Titans
TLDR
This article attempts to review the pertinent information available about the interaction between HIV and malaria and information about chemoprophylaxis and treatment issues to understand the issues that will help to develop effective programs. Expand
No Evidence of Association between HIV-1 and Malaria in Populations with Low HIV-1 Prevalence
TLDR
This study did not identify an association between PfPR and infection with HIV in western sub-Saharan Africa, which suggests that malaria might not play an important role in the spread of HIV in populations where the HIV prevalence is low. Expand
Impact of Endemic Infections on HIV Susceptibility in Sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
A better understanding of the interaction between endemic infections and HIV may enhance HIV prevention programs in SSA and summarizes current knowledge of the epidemiology and underlying immunological mechanisms by which endemic infections could impact HIV acquisition. Expand

TLDR
Data support an interaction between symptomatic P. falciparum and HIV, and suggest an additional HIV-related public health problem in Africa. Expand
Increased prevalence of severe malaria in HIV-infected adults in South Africa.
TLDR
HIV-infected nonimmune adults are at increased risk of severe malaria, and this risk is associated with a low CD4+ T cell count. Expand
HIV infection as a cofactor for severe falciparum malaria in adults living in a region of unstable malaria transmission in South Africa
TLDR
HIV infection had an unexpectedly large association with the outcome of falciparum malaria in a region of unstable transmission, suggesting an interaction of significant public health importance between HIV and malaria in Africa. Expand
Effect of HIV-1 and increasing immunosuppression on malaria parasitaemia and clinical episodes in adults in rural Uganda: a cohort study
TLDR
HIV-1 infection is associated with an increased frequency of clinical malaria and parasitaemia, and this association tends to become more pronounced with advancing immunosuppression, and could have important public-health implications for sub-Saharan Africa. Expand
Activation by malaria antigens renders mononuclear cells susceptible to HIV infection and re‐activates replication of endogenous HIV in cells from HIV‐infected adults
TLDR
Findings suggest that effective malaria control measures might con‐tribute to reducing the spread of HIV and extending the life span of HIV‐infected individuals living in malaria endemic areas. Expand
Effect of Plasmodium falciparum malaria on concentration of HIV-1-RNA in the blood of adults in rural Malawi: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
HIV-infected individuals with malaria have a significantly increased viral load, which might enhance HIV transmission and accelerate disease progression. Expand
Effect of HIV-1 infection on antimalarial treatment outcomes in Uganda: a population-based study.
TLDR
The HIV-1 seroprevalence rate was surprisingly high in adults presenting with malaria, and this finding supports the implementation of routine HIV counseling and testing for adults with uncomplicated falciparum malaria. Expand
Brief but efficient: acute HIV infection and the sexual transmission of HIV.
TLDR
Empirical biological data strongly support the hypothesis that sexual transmission by acutely infected individuals has a disproportionate effect on the spread of HIV-1 infection, and may, in part, explain the current pandemic in heterosexual individuals. Expand
Immune activation and induction of HIV-1 replication within CD14 macrophages during acute Plasmodium falciparum malaria coinfection
TLDR
Acute P. falciparum malaria coinfection impacts virus–host dynamics in HIV-1-infected persons at the cellular level, notably showing a reversible induction of HIV- 1 replication in CD14 macrophages that is associated with changes in immune activation. Expand
The effect of Plasmodium falciparum malaria on HIV-1 RNA blood plasma concentration.
TLDR
HIV-1 blood viral burden is higher in patients with P. falciparum malaria than in controls and this viral burden can, in some patients, be partly reduced with antimalarial therapy. Expand
