Objective null To determine at two distinct time points the prevalence of resistance to ofloxacin (OFX), the representative class drug of fluoroquinolones (FQs), in M. tuberculosis isolates susceptible to first-line drugs. null Results null There were 279 M. tuberculosis isolates from the two cohorts (2004-2005: 238 isolates; 2017: 41 isolates) that underwent OFX drug-susceptibility testing (critical concentration: 2 µg/ml). Of 238 isolates in Cohort 1, no resistance to OFX was detected (95% CI ...

Abstract null Latin America has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 burden in rural settings in Latin America is unclear. We performed a cross-sectional, population-based, random-selection SARS-CoV-2 serological study during March 2021 in the rural population of San Martin region, northern Peru. The study enrolled 563 persons from 288 houses across 10 provinces, reaching 0.19% of the total rural population of San Martin. Screening for SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies was done ...

El objetivo del estudio fue describir las caracteristicas demograficas, clinicas y terapeuticas de pacientes con VIH-SIDA que desarrollaron algun tipo de cancer. Se identificaron 276 casos de cancer diagnosticados en el Hospital Nacional Cayetano Heredia entre el 2000 y 2018. El 80,8% (223/276) correspondieron a neoplasias definitorias de sida (NDS), siendo el mas frecuente el sarcoma de Kaposi; mientras que, entre las neoplasias no definitorias de sida (NNDS), el mas frecuente fue el linfoma de...
The lifelong infection with the human T lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) has been associated with a variety of clinical manifestations; one of the less-explored is HTLV-1-associated pulmonary disease. Imaging of lung damage caused by the HTLV-1 hyperinflammatory cascade can be similar to sequelae from TB infection. Our study aims to describe the pulmonary lesions of HTLV-1-positive patients without past or current active TB and evaluate pulmonary function. We found that nine out of fourteen pa...

Due to a huge crisis extensive to health services many Venezuelan people living with HIV (PLWH) had migrated abroad, including Peru where favorable laws were in place until June 2019. We describe the health status and epidemiological trends of PLWH from Venezuela at an HIV program in Lima. We analyzed baseline and follow-up data of all Venezuelan PLWH enrolled in our HIV program from January 2017 to December 2019. A cross-sectional study in a subsample served to describe ARV adherence and contex...

BACKGROUND Bringing reliable and accurate tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis closer to patients is a key priority for global TB control. Molbio Diagnostics have developed the Truenat point-of-care molecular assays for detection of TB and rifampicin (RIF) resistance. METHODS We conducted a prospective multicentre diagnostic accuracy study at 19 primary health care centres and seven reference laboratories in Peru, India, Ethiopia and Papua New Guinea to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of the point-of-ca...

Summary Background There are few data on life expectancy gains among people living with HIV in low-income and middle-income settings where antiretroviral therapy (ART) is increasingly available. We aimed to analyse life expectancy trends from 2003 to 2017 among people with HIV beginning treatment with ART within the Caribbean, central America, and South America. Methods We did a multisite retrospective cohort study and included people with HIV who had started treatment with ART and were aged 16 ...

Abstract Introduction International conferences on tuberculosis (TB) have been held since the 19th century. In Peru, the TB Scientific Conferences have been held annually in Lima since 2013 as a means of developing a national TB research network and setting the stage for researchers and institutions to present and share new findings from studies conducted in Peru. Methods Systematization of information on speakers and presentations from TB Scientific Conferences in Peru. Presentation files and o...
