Hot News:
Virologic and immunologic determinants of heterosexual transmission of HIV-1 in Africa. Something about the biology of HIV-positive women makes them much more contagious than the level of virus in their blood would indicate. The results of this study suggest gender-specific differences in the biology of heterosexual transmission.
AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses 17(10):901-910

Effects of CCR5-delta32, CCR2-64I, and SDF-1 3'A alleles on HIV-1 disease progression. In this latest study on gene variations affecting HIV disease progression, it was found that two of the alleles—CCR5-delta32 and CCR2-64I—appear to significantly slow HIV patients' progression to AIDS.
Annals of Internal Medicine 135(9):782-795

Protection of rhesus macaques against disease progression from pathogenic SHIV-89.6PD by vaccination with phage-displayed HIV-1 epitopes. New vaccine approach may help overcome the antigenic polymorphism of HIV-1.
Nature Medicine 7:1225-1231

 [Read abstract
Determinants of HIV-1 shedding in the genital tract of women. Results from this study indicate that HIV-1 shedding in infected women (and therefore transmission risk to a sexual partner) is possible even when blood levels of HIV are low.
Lancet 358(9293):1593-1601, November 10, 2001
