Hormonal contraception and genital-tract shedding of HIV-1-infected cells

Lancet British edition 351(9098): 294-295

Hormonal contraception and genital-tract shedding of HIV-1-infected cells

Duerr et al. question the statistical analysis used in the article by Mostad et al. (Lancet (1997) 359 922) reporting increased shedding of HIV infected cells by women using depot medroxyprogesterone acetate for birth control. They also ask about the potential inferences of this finding as they may affect birth control recommendations. Mostad et al. reply. Both groups reaffirm the need for the continued use of condoms regardless of other methods of contraception.

Objective: A previous cross-sectional study reported that hormonal contraception may be associated with increased infectivity in HIV-1 infected women. We conducted a prospective study to determine if cervical shedding of HIV-1 increased after init...

Background. Genital infections due to herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) are characterized by frequent reactivation and shedding of the virus and by the attendant risk of transmission to sexual partners. We investigated the effects of vaginal coi...

Background: Factors that influence shedding of HIV-1 infected cells in cervical and vaginal secretions may be important determinants of sexual and vertical transmission of the virus. We investigated whether hormonal contraceptive use, vitamin A de...
