This was one of the main messages presented at the latest edition of BDebate, an international experts' conference promoted by Biocat - the organization that coordinates and promotes the healthcare and life sciences sector in Catalonia- and…

Worldwide each year more than a million infants are born to women infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus causing AIDS.  Mother-to-child transmission is prevented in most of the cases with maternal antiretroviral treatment during pregnancy, labour, and breastfeeding, and also with a short course of antiretroviral drugs for the baby. Although these infants do not become infected, they…

It is already known that a reduction in gut microbial richness is the hallmark change of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, but how this dysbiosis is established in the HIV-exposed uninfected infant is poorly understood. A recent cross-sectional study, led by Dr. Grace M. Aldrovandi from the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in Los Angeles (USA), suggests that perturbations in the…

The gut microbiome of individuals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a topic of growing scientific interest, as recent research has linked severe immunodeficiency in HIV infection with changes in both the bacterial and viral communities of the gut. At the last edition of B·DEBATE, which was held on Barcelona (Spain) on 30th June-1st July 2016 under the theme, “The…

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is a significant global health threat, with an estimated 35 million HIV-positive adults worldwide. HIV leads to the development of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) by infecting and depleting CD4 T cells, a subset of white blood cells with an important role in mediating immune response. Despite great advances in understanding immune system processes in…
