Danielle Campbell is a Community Advisory Board member at our UCLA site. She conducted a survey to see how our Network could improve its research into women and HIV. “Some of the areas people would like to see researched are sex differences in metabolizing medications, reproductive health and contraception in women living with HIV, and cardiovascular implications associated with taking anti-HIV medications,” Danielle says. “This is important feedback for the ACTG’s investigators and it gives the community the chance to make their concept an actuality. Research into women should be a forethought not an afterthought.”

AIDS 2014 hears about breakthrough in TB treatment

At today’s International AIDS Conference it was announced that researchers have found a new combination of medicines which can cure tuberculosis in as little as four months in drug-resistant patients. TB is the number one cause of death for people living with HIV.

A multicenter team of researchers report that in a phase III clinical trial, a combination drug therapy cures chronic hepatitis C in the majority of patients co-infected with both HIV and hepatitis C. Approximately one-third of HIV patients in the United States have hepatitis C, with an estimated 7 million co-infected patients worldwide. Participants were given sofosbuvir and ribavirin orally. #hiv #aids #hcv #hepatitis #research http://ift.tt/1o07ujs

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of Joep Lange on Malaysia Airlines flight 017. Joep was an extraordinary clinician, scientist, and humanitarian who fought ceaselessly for the rights of persons living with HIV/AIDS and to assure global access to antiretroviral therapy. Joep was a great friend of the ACTG—he chaired the review of the ACTG during a previous competitive renewal cycle and provided invaluable insights through formal and informal consultation that helped shape the current ACTG agenda. Many of us in the ACTG counted Joep and his partner, Jacqueline, as esteemed colleagues and cherished friends. The impact of their loss is immeasurable. We offer our deepest condolences to their families and colleagues, and we are committed to redouble our efforts to realizing the vision to which Joep had devoted his life.

The HIV research community is mourning the loss of Dr. Joep Lange, who was one of the passengers on the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down over the Ukraine. Lange was the former president of the International AIDS Society and was traveling to the IAS meeting in Melbourne. It is believed many other passengers on the flight were also heading to the conference, which is the world’s largest gathering of HIV researchers. #aids #hiv #mh17 #research http://ift.tt/1nT5xFq
