NIDCR Awards Grant to Better Understand Relationship Between Oral Health and HIV Severity
The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) has awarded Tulane University in New Orleans $1.9 million to investigate the relationship between oral health status and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) severity and the impact of antiretroviral therapies (ART). The 3-year study will delve into the effect of oral diseases, such as periodontal diseases and dental caries, on the levels of HIV present, and whether ART influences these levels even when oral diseases are active. The study will be conducted at the Tulane National Primate Research Center. Click here to read more.
