Creighton Pharmacy Professor Publishes on Potential for Drug to Stave Off HIV

Chris Destache, Pharm.D., earned a National Institutes for Health grant last year to look into using HIV drug nanoparticles fabricated with a FDA-approved biocompatible polymer and how those drug-ladened nanoparticles can be used to help prevent HIV.

Neutrons Probe Structure of Enzyme Critical to Development of Next-Generation HIV Drugs

16-G00322_Feature_Kovalevsky_ornlStory.jpg

A team led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory used neutron analysis to better understand a protein implicated in the replication of HIV, the retrovirus that causes AIDS. The enzyme, known as HIV-1 protease, is a key drug target for HIV and AIDS therapies. The multi-institutional team used neutron crystallography to uncover detailed interactions of hydrogen bonds at the enzyme’s active site, revealing a pH-induced proton ‘hopping’ mechanism that guides its activity.

Residual Inflammation, Abnormal Blood Coagulation Place Individuals with HIV at Increased Risk for Non-AIDS Diseases

With more than 36.9 million people infected globally, HIV continues to be a major public health issue. Those living with the virus are at an increased risk for other non-AIDS diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, and though it’s not entirely clear why, this has been associated with inflammation and abnormal blood clotting.A new study – the largest of its kind – involving researchers from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU), published recently in PLOS ONE, provides direct evidence that altered coagulation caused by the HIV virus, which can be related to inflammation, is not fully halted by HIV treatment and is associated with increased risk of non-AIDS diseases.

NYU Research: Borderline Personality Disorder Strongly Associated with Risk of STI/HIV Transmission Among Incarcerated Heterosexual African American Males

A study from the Department of Population Health at NYULMC and New York University's Center for Drug Use and HIV Research (CDUHR), led by Scheidell, is the first to examine the association between borderline personality disorder (BPD) and the risk for HIV and other STIs in an adult male criminal justice population.

HIV Infections Drop, but U.S. Falls Short of National Goals

The number of new HIV infections and the transmission rate in the United States dropped by 11 and 17 percent, respectively, between 2010 and 2015, but fell short of the goals put forth by President Obama’s U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy.

Number of HIV Infections Falling in United States, but Fails to Meet Reduction Goals

The number of new HIV infections occurring annually in the United States decreased by an estimated 11 percent from 2010 to 2015, while the HIV transmission rate decreased by an estimated 17 percent during the same time period, according to new research from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of Pennsylvania.
