Strategic Objetive
Although great progress has been made, HIV infection remains an incurable disease. Even under the best circumstances, HIV-infected patients who receive current antiretroviral therapy have a survival disadvantage compared with the general non-infected population, which is estimated to be a life expectancy of 15 years less than the general population.
HIV infection is highly prevalent in Spain. Among western European countries, Spain has the second highest prevalence. An important local characteristic of the HIV-infected population in Spain is the high prevalence of hepatitis C coinfection.
This research line covers four main topics of research in HIV infection: antiretroviral treatment, HIV-HCV coinfection, metabolic complications and HIV-resistance to antiretroviral drugs. In addition, we are planning to start another research project on infections other than HIV.
The group has started a new research line regarding the aging and HIV Infection.
Tropical diseases are increasing as a consequence of global travel. These diseases continue to be relatively rare however, and therefore, often sub-optimal treated if managed by non-speciaslists. Furthermore, every year an increasing amount of special travelers (pregnants, comorbidities, immunossupressed) travel abroad, adding complexity in terms of a timely and effective diagnosis and management. The Tropical and Travel Medicine Unit provide both pre and postravel assistance in imported infectious diseases. The aim of this Unit is to provide efficient and effecrive specialist care with proven or suspected tropical disease and a specific preventative travel advice, togheter with international vaccines recommended for the trip.
