Gynaecomastia has been reported in an HIV-1- infected man treated with a triple antiviral regimen including indinavir1. We describe 4 cases of men with gynaecomastia associated with saquinavir (hard gel capsule) therapy who denied taking any hormonal supplements or opiates.

    Background Apoptosis is one of the presumptive causes of CD4+ T cell depletion during HIV infection and progression to AIDS. However, the precise role of HIV-1 in this process remains unexplained. HIV-1 protease (PR) has been suggested as a possible factor, but a direct link between HIV-1 PR...

    Objectives There is a general lack of effective and non-toxic chemotherapeutic agents for leishmaniasis and there is as yet no study about the effect of HIV peptidase inhibitors (HIV PIs) on Leishmania/HIV-coinfected patients. In the present work, we performed a comparative analysis of the...
