Mortality and clinical outcomes in HIV-infected children on antiretroviral therapy in Malawi, Lesotho, and Swaziland

, : Mortality and clinical outcomes in HIV-infected children on antiretroviral therapy in Malawi, Lesotho, and Swaziland. Pediatrics 130(3): E591-E599

There is evidence from both developed and developing countries that antiretroviral treatment significantly reduces mortality in HIV-infected children. However, in sub-Saharan Africa, numerous health system, financial, and human resource obstacles make delivering quality pediatric HIV care a challenge.We describe the experience of the Baylor International Pediatrics AIDS Initiative in Malawi, Lesotho, and Swaziland. Despite challenges delivering pediatric treatment in these countries, mortality and clinical outcomes approaching those from developed countries are feasible..

Peroxidase activity in healthy root, leaf and hypocotyl tissues of the susceptible variety Caruaro was greater than that in Bolita 42, which is resistant. In the latter, activity increased after inoculation with the virus, but no systematic change...

In this paper the effect of a delayed onset of glaciation in the Barents Sea on glacial isostatic adjustment is investigated. The model calculations solve the sea-level equation governing the total mass redistributions associated with the last gla...

The amounts of agaritine and GHB, aromatic amino acids with a gamma-glutamyl residue, were determined in the fructifying mycelia and the corresponding fruit bodies of Agaricus bisporus, strain Somycel 609. The fructifying mycelium appeared as a si...
