New publications from EPIICAL Consortium

Tags: , ,

Just published – data on T & B cell memory and T cell function in early-treated children in the Journal of Immunology and AIDS. Antiretroviral treatment (if started at an early stage) is able to reduce the amount of HIV virus in a child’s body. EPIICAL is studying the characteristics of the immune response and the amount of HIV virus, in children with HIV who are treated at an early stage. This is to outline treatment strategies to help find a cure for HIV. Congratulations to all the authors!

Tags: ,

Authors: Rinaldi S, Pallikkuth S, Cameron M, et al. Published in: J Immunol. 2020 Feb 1;204:540-549 Abstract Early initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in vertically HIV-infected children limits the size of the virus reservoir, but whether the time of treatment initiation (TI) can durably impact host immune responses associated with HIV infection is still unknown. This study was conducted in PBMC of 20 HIV-infected virally suppressed children on ART (mean age 9.4 y), classified as early treated (ET; age at ART initiation ≤0.5 y, n = 14) or late treated (LT; […]
