Rob Olver reports back on #CAHR2017

Attending CAHR2017 as a CATIE rapporteur

As I prepared to attend CAHR2017 in Montreal I was elated, but a bit nervous as well. I hadn’t qualified for a community scholarship but had been accepted as a CATIE rapporteur. This meant I’d be covering the event for CATIE as well as for PositiveLite.com and then on the final day, my fellow rapporteurs and I would present a report back to the rest of the conference with a distillation of what we’d seen and heard. So yes, I had butterflies, mostly because I haven’t done much science w

The capsid inhibitor—a new class to enter clinical trials

From CATIE: "This finding suggests that the capsid inhibitor has potential for intermittent dosing in people—perhaps every one or two months."

The capsid inhibitor—a new class to enter clinical trials

Most approved anti-HIV drugs work by interfering with an enzyme and/or protein that is needed by HIV-infected cells to make new viruses. A journey through the cell The capsid is the name given to the proteins that surround HIV’s genetic material. Upon HIV attaching itself to a target cell of the immune system, the virus sends its genetic material (RNA) into the cell. As the genetic material is surrounded by the capsid, it is protected from detection by the cell’s internal sensors. The ca

At the recent Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), which took place in Seattle from February 13 to 16, 2017, researchers presented data about new anti-HIV compounds in development, including the following: a new integrase inhibitor – bictegravir a new nuke (NRTI) – code-named GS-9131 a non-nuke (NNRTI) – doravirine a new protease inhibitor – code-named GS-PI1 a capsid inhibitor (a new cla

PositiveLite.com gets the inside scoop on U=U (CATIE’s role in promoting it) federal government funding (any hope of more money?) and the Federal HIV/AIDS strategy (missing in action or not?)

PositiveLite.com Publisher Bob Leahy talks to CATIE’s Executive Director Laurie Edmiston

It’s a pleasure chatting with CATIE’s Laurie Edmiston. She is frank, knowledgeable, speaks with conviction – and generous with both her time and opinions. I asked her this week for her opinion on three topics crucial to where we are in the response to HIV at this time. I asked her about CATIE’s decision to endorse U=U (Undetectable = Untransmittable) earlier this year and CATIE’s ongoing role in providing information and resources around that topic. I asked her about the status of t

B.C. researchers explore life expectancy among HIV-positive people

From CATIE, Sean R. Hosein reports on studies comparing the effect of comorbidities on life expectancy in people living with HIV and those who are HIV-negative.

B.C. researchers explore life expectancy among HIV-positive people

In the 20th century, life expectancy increased in Canada and other high-income countries thanks to improvements in medicine, better living conditions and so on. These changes have led some researchers to focus on something called health-adjusted life expectancy: exploring the number of years a person can expect to live in good and bad health and taking into account age-related illness, death and disability. Among many HIV-positive people in Canada and other high-income countries there has be

Bruce Richman brings the U=U message to Toronto April 5

It's official. Bruce Richman is coming to Canada next month to talk U=U (Undetectable =Untransmittable) . We have already announced details of the Montreal public meeting on April 6. Now we can share details of the Toronto event.

CATIE's must-read information for the newly diagnosed.

If you just found out you are HIV-positive...

Finding out you have HIV may be a shock. You do not have to go through this alone: There is help. With ongoing treatment, care and support, HIV can be managed. You can live long and well with HIV. You’ve already taken the first step by getting tested. Now it is important to get care and treatment as soon as you can. 1. HIV can be treated. Talk to the person who gave you your test result about finding a doctor who treats people with HIV. If they cannot give you the name and number of an HI

Women: What HIV/AIDS organisations aren’t telling us about our amazing bodies!

Megan DePutter:"there’s a considerable lack of understanding, respect and information-sharing going on about the basic elements of women’s sexual health, enjoyment, and reproduction."

Women: What HIV/AIDS organisations aren’t telling us about our amazing bodies!

When delivering training on HIV transmission, I like to ask the participants to name the five bodily fluids that can transmit HIV. Blood is always stated first. Next, the participants will (incorrectly) state saliva. People usually get semen next. And often one person will identify breastmilk. The remaining two tend to be a bit of a puzzle. The answers are of course, anal mucous and vaginal fluid. I have yet to encounter any participant who is not already working/volunteering in the field wh

HIV prevention for people who inject drugs: New biomedical approaches and time-honoured strategies

From CATIE, Camille Arkell looks at the risk of HIV transmission through injection drug use, and explores some of the factors that contribute to an increased risk among people who inject drugs.

HIV prevention for people who inject drugs: New biomedical approaches and time-honoured strategies

Une version française est disponible ici. In Canada, people who inject drugs are disproportionately affected by HIV compared to the general population. Among people who inject drugs, HIV transmission happens primarily through the sharing of injection drug use equipment, but also through sexual transmission. This article will look at the risk of HIV transmission through injection drug use, and will explore some of the factors that contribute to an increased risk among people who inject dr

CATIE spoke to three service providers about PrEP and finds very different conditions in different regions, but a common need for PrEP access.
