Brief Report: Differences in Types of Myocardial Infarctions Among People Aging With HIV.

Heidi M Crane, Robin M Nance, Bridget M Whitney, Susan R Heckbert, Matthew Budoff, Kevin High, Alan Landay, Matthew Feinstein, Richard D Moore, William Christopher Mathews, Katerina Christopoulos, Michael S Saag, Amanda Willig, Joseph J Eron, Mari M Kitahata, Joseph A C Delaney, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Type 1 myocardial infarctions (T1MIs) result from atherosclerotic plaque instability, rupture, and/or erosion. Type 2 MIs (T2MIs) are secondary to causes such as sepsis and cocaine-induced vasospasm resulting in an oxygen demand-supply mismatch and are associated with higher mortality than T1MIs. T2MIs account for a higher proportion of MIs among ... Read more >>

Influence of intramuscular depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate initiation on vaginal microbiota in the postpartum period.

Bridget M Whitney, Sujatha Srinivasan, Kenneth Tapia, Eric Munene Muriuki, Bhavna H Chohan, Jacqueline M Wallis, Congzhou Liu, Brandon L Guthrie, R Scott McClelland, Noah G Hoffman, David N Fredricks, Alison C Roxby,

<h4>Background</h4>The vaginal microbiome plays a key role in women's reproductive health. Use of exogenous hormones, such as intramuscular depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA-IM), may alter the composition of vaginal bacterial community.<h4>Methods</h4>Vaginal swabs were collected from postpartum Kenyan women initiating DMPA-IM or non-hormonal contraception (non-HC). Bacterial vaginosis was assessed by Nugent score (Nugent-BV) ... Read more >>

Bridget M Whitney, Brandon L Guthrie, Sujatha Srinivasan, Kenneth Tapia, Eric Munene Muriuki, Bhavna H Chohan, Jacqueline M Wallis, Congzhou Liu, R Scott McClelland, David N Fredricks, Alison C Roxby,

BACKGROUND:The ECHO trial has relieved apprehension about intramuscular depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA-IM), however it is still important to understand how DMPA-IM affects the vaginal environment. We sought to describe how DMPA-IM initiation influences vaginal bacteria associated with HIV acquisition in postpartum women. METHODS:Vaginal swabs were collected for Nugent score determination ...

Robin M Nance, Maria Esther Perez Trejo, Bridget M Whitney, Joseph A C Delaney, Fredrick L Altice, Curt G Beckwith, Geetanjali Chander, Redonna Chandler, Katerina Christopoulous, Chinazo Cunningham, William E Cunningham, Carlos Del Rio, Dennis Donovan, Joseph J Eron, Rob J Fredericksen, Shoshana Kahana, Mari M Kitahata, Richard Kronmal, Irene Kuo, Ann Kurth, W Chris Mathews, Kenneth H Mayer, Richard D Moore, Michael J Mugavero, Lawrence J Ouellet, Vu M Quan, Michael S Saag, Jane M Simoni, Sandra Springer, Lauren Strand, Faye Taxman, Jeremy D Young, Heidi M Crane,

<h4>Background</h4>Substance use is common among people living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLWH) and a barrier to achieving viral suppression. Among PLWH who report illicit drug use, we evaluated associations between HIV viral load (VL) and reduced use of illicit opioids, methamphetamine/crystal, cocaine/crack, and marijuana, regardless of whether or not abstinence ...

<h4>Background</h4>Guidelines for initial antiretroviral treatment (ART) regimens have evolved, with integrase strand transfer inhibitors (INSTIs) increasingly prominent. Research on virologic failure (VF) with INSTI therapy is predominantly from clinical trials not care settings, especially for recently approved medications including dolutegravir. We compared outcomes among people living with HIV (PLWH) who ... Read more >>

<h4>Objective</h4>Bilirubin is an antioxidant that may suppress lipid oxidation. Elevated bilirubin is associated with decreased cardiovascular events in HIV-uninfected populations. We examined these associations in people living with HIV (PLWH).<h4>Methods</h4>Potential myocardial infarctions (MIs) and strokes were centrally adjudicated. We examined MI types: type 1 MI (T1MI) from atherosclerotic plaque instability ... Read more >>
