AIDS caused by HIV has been a significant global pandemic, which is continuously threatening with more than two million newer infections and more than one million deaths each year. Human interventions to prevent or to cure the disease have been paid off at large proportions, yet not to the extent of reducing or completely nullifying those two million newer infections each year. To prevent many novel vaccine approaches have been showing very significant success, but very slow to come in the pipeline process mainly due to theirs reduced efficacies at pre-clinical or clinical trials level. Recently it has been reported that cure from AIDS using a monoclonal antibody (a4ß7) therapy along with ART has been highly successful in non-human primates. Taken together these novel advancements, I am very hopeful that the burden of AIDS pandemic may be reduced substantially in the coming days.
We are bringing some interesting reports on the advancements of HIV/AIDS treatment, socio-economic impact, and the impact of the HIV co-infections [1,2]. First and foremost, we are bringing the report of the clinical outcome of ART on HIV infected patients in Nairobi Kenya followed by EBV-associated tumors in HIV infected patients . We also covered the reports of association between genetic divergence and HIV resistance and finally reported the ways on scaling up the strategies for preventing HIV infections . Hence, I believe strongly that the current issue of J AIDS & Clinical Research attracts wide range of readership.
