Directly Observed Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy for HIV-infected Children in Cambodia

American Journal of Public Health. Jun, 2007  |  Pubmed ID: 17463375

Antiretroviral medications are becoming available for HIV-infected children in resource-limited settings. Maryknoll, an international Catholic charity, provided directly observed antiretroviral therapy to HIV-infected children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Child care workers administered generic antiretroviral drugs twice daily to children, ensuring adherence. Treatment began with 117 late-stage HIV-infected children; 22 died of AIDS during the first 6 months. The rest were treated for at least 6 months and showed CD4 count increases comparable to those achieved in US and European children. Staffing cost for this program was approximately US $5 per child per month, or 15% more than the price of the medications. Drug toxicities were uncommon and easily managed. Directly observed antiretroviral therapy appears to be a promising, low-cost strategy for ensuring adherent treatment for HIV-infected children in a resource-limited setting.

Microscopic Observation Drug Susceptibility Assay for Tuberculosis Screening Before Isoniazid Preventive Therapy in HIV-infected Persons

Clinical Infectious Diseases : an Official Publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Apr, 2010  |  Pubmed ID: 20192727

Active tuberculosis (TB) must be excluded before initiating isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT) in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), but currently used screening strategies have poor sensitivity and specificity and high patient attrition rates. Liquid TB culture is now recommended for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in individuals suspected of having TB. This study compared the efficacy, effectiveness, and speed of the microscopic observation drug susceptibility (MODS) assay with currently used strategies for TB screening before IPT in HIV-infected persons.

Advanced Stage Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary is Both Rare and Highly Lethal: a Gynecologic Oncology Group Study

Cancer. Feb, 2011  |  Pubmed ID: 20862744

Primary mucinous adenocarcinomas of the ovary are uncommon, and their biological behavior is uncertain. Retrospective studies have suggested that many mucinous carcinomas initially diagnosed as primary to the ovary have in fact metastasized from another site. A prospective randomized trial provided an opportunity to estimate the frequency of mucinous tumors, diagnostic reproducibility, and clinical outcomes.

Improved Survival in Non-Ashkenazi Jewish Ovarian Cancer Patients with BRCA1 and BRCA2 Gene Mutations

Gynecologic Oncology. May, 2011  |  Pubmed ID: 21276604

The purpose of this study was to determine if this association exists in patients with non-Ashkenazi Jewish (non-AJ) BRCA mutations. We also sought to account for "survival bias" by minimizing lead time that may exist between diagnosis and genetic testing.
