Early Infant HIV Treatment in Botswana

HIV-1 infection during adulthood leads to a stable, long-lasting viral reservoir in CD4 T cells that persists despite suppressive antiretroviral therapy (ART), and is responsible for rapid viral rebound once treatment is stopped in most cases. In neonates, HIV-1 infection occurs at a time when the adaptive immune system is ...

Effect of Dolutegravir on Etonogestrel Levels in HIV-infected Women in Botswana

Efavirenz-based antiretroviral therapy is effective in treating HIV and had become standard in the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. However, despite its effectiveness in lowering viral load, there is also solid evidence that it decreases the effectiveness of etonogestrel-releasing implants. This presents a difficult clinical scenario in countries where the ...
