Could UK HIV transmissions really go down to near-zero by 2030? The latest report suggests so
The latest annual report on HIV diagnosis, treatment and testing in the UK should have come out, as they normally do, in advance of World AIDS Day, 1 December last year. It did not, due to the embargo on government publications during the general election campaign.
Gonorrhoea testing and treatment in Europe: survey reveals better testing for gay men, but gaps in resistance testing
Aside from HIV, gonorrhoea is the sexually transmitted infection that attracts the keenest attention, with 87 million infections occurring worldwide every year. In Europe cases have more than tripled since 2008, with gay and bisexual men accounting for 25 to 30% of cases, about ten times the rate in heterosexuals.
Truvada, not Descovy, should be the first choice for PrEP, US experts say
Although there are now two drug combinations which can be used for HIV prevention as PrEP, there is stronger and broader evidence for the older combination (Truvada), which should remain the first-line choice, four leading US doctors argue in the Annals of Internal Medicine today. The authors emphasise the excellent safety profile of both drugs.
Why do people turn down the offer of PrEP?
Less than half of individuals diagnosed with STIs or other markers of HIV risk accepted an active offer of PrEP, according to Canadian research published in AIDS and Behavior. Offers of a PrEP referral were made by nurses to people diagnosed with rectal STIs, syphilis, sexual contact with an HIV-positive individual and also those who had used a course of HIV post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). However, only 48% accepted the offer of PrEP.
Hepatitis C screening among PrEP users could eliminate hepatitis C infections in gay men in the UK
Increasing the frequency of hepatitis C screening in gay and bisexual men taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in the United Kingdom has the potential to reduce new hepatitis C infections in the UK by 2030, especially if the proportion of men taking PrEP increases to 25%, researchers report in the journal EClinical Medicine.
