Tessa Goetghebuer - CHU Saint-Pierre, ULB: Maternal determinants of susceptibility to severe infections in HIV-exposed uninfected infants

Beschrijving

2016 - With the administration of antiretroviral (ARV) prophylaxis during pregnancy, most children born to HIV-infected women are protected from transmission of the virus. Our previous studies showed that although uninfected with HIV, these children have a higher risk of severe infections during the first months of life as compared to children born to HIV-uninfected mothers. In addition, we observed that the risk of severe infections is associated with alterations of the immune system that are already detectable at birth.

Doel

Understanding how these immune alterations may cause severe infections and identifying the children that are at higher risk will help us improve the clinical management of HIV-exposed children. To achieve this, we are initiating a new birth cohort study that will analyze in details the immune system of HIV-infected mothers and their children.
