Contemporary antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed the lives of people living with HIV (PLWH) dramatically, with life expectancy near normal and their quality of life improved.
However, it has been known for some time that people with HIV are at greater risk of loss of bone density and fractures, with ART a contributing factor. Professor Jenny Hoy, Professor Director of HIV Medicine at the Alfred Hospital and Monash University, recently conducted a review of all available randomised trial data in which fractures were measured to evaluate the problem.
Victoria Berquist has just begun her first year as an intern at Alfred Health. She studied undergraduate medicine at Monash University and in 2015, Victoria undertook a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) research year at the Central Clinical School for which she was awarded the Hatem Salem Award for Medical Research Student Excellence.
