Anwender der Präexpositionsprophylaxe erkranken in Metaanalyse häufig an anderen sexuell übertragbaren Erkrankungen

London – Die Präexpositionsprophylaxe (PrEP), die Menschen mit hohem Infektionsrisiko vor einer HIV-Infektion schützen kann, verleitet viele Anwender offenbar, den Schutz vor anderen sexuell übertragbaren Erkrankungen (STD) zu vernachlässigen. Nach einer Metaanalyse in JAMA (2019; 2: e1917134) infizieren sich bereits in den ersten 3 Monaten der PrEP 3/4 der Anwender mit Chlamydien, Gonokokken oder Treponema pallidum. (aerzteblatt.de, 16.12.2019)

Deutschland. Zahl der HIV-Neuinfektionen leicht gesunken

Berlin – Im vergangenen Jahr haben sich weniger Menschen in Deutschland mit HIV infi­ziert. Nach einer Schätzung des Robert-Koch-Instituts (RKI) liegt die Zahl der Neuinfekti­onen bundesweit bei 2.400. Das seien hundert Fälle weniger als im Jahr zuvor, teilte das RKI heute mit Blick auf den Welt-Aids-Tag am 1. Dezember mit. (aerzteblatt.de, 14.11.2019)

Willkommen im European HIV/AIDS Archive der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin!

Das European HIV/AIDS Archive eröffnet einen Raum, Erinnerungen an das Leben mit HIV/AIDS, das zivilgesellschaftliche Engagement und AIDS-Politiken in Europa zu bewahren, Geschichten zu teilen und aus der Vielstimmigkeit zu lernen. Kern der Sammlung sind Oral-History-/Zeitzeug*innen-Interviews zur Geschichte und Gegenwart des individuellen, gesellschaftlichen und politischen Umgangs mit HIV/AIDS. Oral Histories ermöglichen eine lebendige und multi-perspektivische Erinnerung. Das Archiv versteht sich als Ergänzung und Erweiterung bereits in einzelnen europäischen Ländern existierender Sammlungen zu HIV/AIDS. Die Sammlung beinhaltet Video- und Audiointerviews mit Menschen, die mit HIV/AIDS leben, Aktivist*innen, Mitarbeiter*innen von Hilfsorganisationen, Politiker*innen, Beschäftigten des Gesundheitswesens und Künstler*innen zu Themen wie Sexarbeit, Drogen, Migration, Gefängnis, LSBTI-Rechten oder queeren Politiken. Diese werden durch Verzeichnisse von Kunstwerken und politischen Dokumenten ergänzt. (Humboldt Universität, Berlin, November 2019)

HIV: Mikrozephalie durch pränatale Exposition mit Efavirenz

Boston – Nicht an HIV erkrankte Kinder, deren HIV-positive Mütter während der Schwangerschaft mit dem antiretroviralen Wirkstoff Efavirenz behandelt wurden, wiesen in einer prospektiven Kohortenstudie 2 bis 2,5-mal häufiger als andere Kinder einen zu kleinen Kopfumfang auf. Die in Lancet HIV (2019; DOI: 10.1016/S2352-3018(19)30340-6) publizierte Studie bestätigt die Teratogenität des häufig eingesetzten Wirkstoffs. (aerzteblatt.de, 19.11.2019)

EACS Guidelines version 10.0 (Nov 2019)

These Guidelines were developed by the European AIDS Clinical Society (EACS), a not-for-profit organisation, whose mission is to promote excellence in standards of care, research and education in HIV infection and related co-infections, and to actively engage in the formulation of public health policy, with the aim of reducing the HIV disease burden across Europe.

The EACS Guidelines were first published in 2005, and are currently available in print, online as a pdf, a web edition (new for 2019) and as a free mobile App for both iOS and Android devices. The Guidelines are translated into several different languages and are formally revised at least annually for the electronic version and biennially for the printed version. The electronic version can, however, be updated at any time if the panels consider it necessary.

The aim of the EACS Guidelines is to provide easily accessible and comprehensive recommendations to clinicians involved in the care of people living with HIV (PLWH).

The EACS Guidelines cover a relatively large and diverse area geographically, with different national levels of access to care. As a natural consequence, the Guidelines aim to cover a relatively wide range of recommendations as opposed to the often more uniform national guidelines.

The 2019 version of the Guidelines introduces a new drug-drug interaction panel and now consists of six main sections, including a general overview table of all major issues in PLWH, recommendations on antiretroviral treatment, drug-drug interactions, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of co-morbidities, co-infections and opportunistic diseases.
