New findings describe a role for viruses other than HIV in advancing disease.

Damage to the gastrointestinal tract is common in patients with AIDS, and it’s not just a minor complication of the disease. Researchers suspect that this damage actually contributes to activation of the patient’s immune system, the development of immune deficiency, and ultimately the progression of AIDS, writes Harvard University's Bonnie Prescott.   Read More...

Why do some HIV-positive people take more than a decade to progress to full-blown AIDS, if they progress at all?

Although the average time between HIV infection and AIDS in the absence of antiretroviral treatment is about 10 years, some individuals succumb within two years, while so-called slow progressors can stay healthy for 20 years or longer. Researchers already know that many slow progressors carry a gene called HLA-B*57 (B57), an immune gene variant that is found in less than 5% of the general population but in 40 to 85% of slow progressors. Yet even among those with the B57 gene, the speed of disease progression can vary considerably, writes Enrique Rivero, UCLA.   Read More...
