Characterisation of llama antibody fragments able to act as HIV-1 entry inhibitors
TLDR
The isolation and characterisation of novel, broadly neutralising antibody fragments derived from llamas indicate that llama VHH can be potent HIV-1 entry inhibitors and might also prove useful in defining neutralising and non-neutralising epitopes on HIV- 1 envelope proteins, with implications for HIV-2 vaccine design.
Genetic aspects of HIV-1 evolution and transmission
TLDR
A fast and simple method for optimization of the root and evolutionary rate using samples from at least two different time points in a phylogenetic tree is developed, suitable for rate estimations in real situations where the correct root and topology of a tree are usually unknown.
A Molecular Window into the Biology and Epidemiology of Pneumocystis spp
TLDR
Advances include an improved taxonomic classification, identification of an extremely reduced genome and concomitant inability to metabolize and grow independent of the host lungs, insights into its transmission mode, recognition of its widespread colonization in both immunocompetent and immunodeficient hosts, and utilization of strain variation to study drug resistance, epidemiology, and outbreaks of infection among transplant patients.
How the sexual matters in HIV care: a case study of long-term survivors of the epidemic
TLDR
This thesis investigates how sexuality, understood as embedded in specific political, social and historical discourses and practices of the epidemic, features in HIV medical care today and reveals the ways in which camp culture, in particular camp humour and celebration of gay sexuality, forge novel alliances between patients and healthcare professionals.
Perception du risque des infections sexuellement transmissibles chez les homosexuels sous prophylaxie pré-exposition
Les annees 2000 ont ete le theâtre d’une recrudescence des infections par le VIH. La communaute homosexuelle, surtout les jeunes populations, a ete la plus touchee par cette augmentation. Malgre
HIV—Medical Perspective
TLDR
This chapter provides a brief overview of HIV from a medical perspective, providing context for the importance of nutrition and development in the prevention and treatment of the infection.
Epidemiology of fungal infections in HIV infected individuals in France : P jirovecii pneumonia and invasive aspergillosis in FHDH ANRS CO4
TLDR
The purpose of this work was to study changes in the epidemiology of fungal infections among HIV-infected individuals in France in the late cART period, focusing on PCP and invasive aspergillosis (IA) in the French Hospital Database on HIV ANRS CO4 (FHDH).
Characterization of HIV-1 RNA and DNA during long-term suppressive therapy
TLDR
A lack of substantial HIV-1 genetic evolution during cART suggests that ongoing replication is not a major cause of viral persistence in memory T cells, and there is currently no assay that will accurately measure the latent reservoir during clinical trials of curative strategies.
Estimating the heritability of virulence in HIV
TLDR
A novel application of a population-scale method based in quantitative genetics to estimate the heritability of viral load in HIV using a viral phylogeny, which allows accurate estimation of heritability in large datasets, and has provided valuable insight into the viral influence on viral Load in HIV.

Pneumocystis pneumonia--Los Angeles.
TLDR
The occurrence of pneumocystosis in these 5 previously healthy men without a clinically apparent underlying immunodeficiency is unusual but seems to reflect some association with a homosexual lifestyle or disease acquired through sexual contact.
Prevalence of cytomegalovirus infection in homosexual men.
TLDR
The data suggest that sexual transmission is an important mode of spread of CMV among adults and the homosexual men are at greater risk for CMV infections than are heterosexual men.
Mechanisms of immunosuppression in cytomegaloviral mononucleosis.
TLDR
These studies suggest that mitogen hyporesponsiveness in CMV mononucleosis may be mediated by suppressor cells included among the plastic-adherent mononuclear leukocyte population.
