Global HIV Treatment Guidelines May Be Revised Based on Study - IAVI Report - Blog

"For years now, treatment guidelines in the United States and other developed countries have advocated earlier treatment start thresholds than the World Health Organization has put forward for other countries," said Timothy Lahey, an infectious diseases specialist and associate professor of medicine at Dartmouth College's Geisel School of Medicine.
"This is a mistake. Since the natural history of HIV and the efficacy of therapy are the same in the United States and in other countries, the treatment guidelines should be the same: Everyone should be started as soon as they are diagnosed and ready to start." The earlier treatment starts, the higher the costs of delivering these drugs, which in almost all cases must be taken for life. This isn't trivial for already stretched budgets in many developing countries and without any increase in international funding. But according to Lahey this is no excuse. "What we should not do is systematically fool ourselves by setting inappropriately unambitious treatment goals and then feeling proud of the proportion of people who were treated according to them," Lahey said.

How countries around the world try to encourage vaccination | Magic 107.3 |KMJK-FM

Immunity is a "game of numbers," said Dr. Tim Lahey, a professor at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, in which the "way to win is to get as many people as possible immunized so that it just disappears from the population."
"Most vaccines are partially protective but not fully protective," Lahey said. For this reason, if you look at some of US outbreaks of measles or mumps - which at least 90% of the population has been vaccinated against since 2000 - the people who get sick are usually those who have not been immunized. Still, even some people who have been vaccinated have become sick during an outbreak. So if measles "immunization rates fall to, say, 50% to 60%, and we might say, 'Heck, that's not so bad,' " Lahey said, that still would mean that "probably 60% to 70% of people are vulnerable" to a life-threatening illness. Typically, this school mandate "does increase the likelihood that children get immunized," said Lahey, who sees the requirement not as a punishment but "as a carrot encouraging a carrot," since both vaccination and school are positives people want for their children. Yet some parents feel that their children ought to have the right to attend school "without accepting responsibility for the implications of doing that," he said. Part of that responsibility is making sure school is a safe place. "And one way to make sure you're safe is to not be contagious, and vaccines really help that," Lahey said. Still, he acknowledges that "sometimes in the conversation around vaccines, people can react against the incentive" and "develop resentments. "They can feel like being encouraged to get immunizations gives them a loss of control," he said. So while some parents opt out of vaccinating their kids, other people simply slip through the cracks. Ultimately, then, there's always a minority group that may not be vaccinated for one reason or another, Lahey said. According to Lahey, emerging data indicate that if someone in your social circle - whether that's a person at your tennis club or your minister - puts vaccination forward as "a social norm, that does seem to encourage people to be more likely to get vaccination." According to Lahey, we are partly victims of our own safety success. "We don't see measles, mumps, rubella, polio so much anymore, so we don't feel like we're at risk and therefore the inconvenience, the cost, the very small risk of immunizations can feel like the bigger problem," he said.


Bacteria or virus? Diagnostic tool could curb antibiotic overuse

"If it can be turned into a point-of-care test, it could really revolutionize medicine, but that's a big piece of work to accomplish," said Dr. Timothy Lahey, an infectious disease specialist at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine, who was not involved in the study.
"Those are all huge downsides that are killing people on a regular basis," Lahey said, "but they're less immediate than the person in front of you."
