Abstract Background & Aims We evaluated the impact of integrating HCV testing/education into integrated care centers (ICCs) delivering HIV services to people who inject drugs (PWID) across India using a cluster-randomized trial. Methods We compared ICCs with usual care (UC) in the PWID stratum (12 sites) of a 22-site cluster-randomized trial. In 6 sites, ICCs delivering HIV testing, harm reduction, other preventive services and linkage to HIV treatment were scaled from opioid agonist therapy cen...

Recent findings point to a role of Checkpoint Inhibitor (CPI) receptors at the tissue level in immune homeostasis. Here we investigated the role of CPI molecules on immune cells in relation to cardiac function. Participants recruited in Chennai, India consisted of HIV+ ART naive viremic (Gp1 n = 102), HIV+ on ART, virologically suppressed (Gp2, n = 172) and HIV negative healthy controls (Gp3, n = 64). A cross-sectional analysis of cardiac function, arterial resistance and immunologic assessment ...

Background Dengue and chikungunya are rapidly expanding viruses transmitted by mosquitoes of the genus Aedes. Few epidemiological studies have examined the extent of transmission of these infections in South India despite an increase in the number of reported cases, and a high suitability for transmission. Methods and findings We conducted a household-based seroprevalence survey among 1010 individuals aged 540 years living in fifty randomly selected spatial locations in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Part...

BACKGROUND: Injecting drug use has historically been the principal driver of the HIV epidemic in the northeast states of India. However recent data indicate growing numbers of people who inject drugs (PWIDs) in north and central Indian cities. METHODS: We conducted face-to-face surveys among PWIDs in seven northeast and eight north/central Indian cities using respondent-driven sampling. We used a rapid HIV-testing protocol to identify seropositive individuals and multiassay algorithm to identify...

Summary Background 90% of individuals infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) worldwide reside in resource-limited settings. We aimed to characterise the prevalence of HCV, HIV/HCV co-infection, and the HCV care continuum in people who inject drugs in India. Methods 14 481 people (including 31 seeds—individuals selected as the starting point for sampling because they were well connected in the drug using community) who inject drugs were sampled from 15 cities throughout India using respondent-driv...

The authors characterized human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) incidence and prospective changes in self-reported risk behavior over 2 years among 1,158 injection drug users (IDUs) recruited in Chennai, India, in 2005–2006. At baseline, HIV prevalence was 25.3%, and HCV prevalence was 54.5%. Seropositive persons with prevalent HIV infection were used to estimate baseline HIV incidence by means of the Calypte HIV-1 BED Incidence EIA (Calypte Biomedical Corporation, Portl...
