BACKGROUND: Economic theory and limited empirical data suggest that costs per unit of HIV prevention program output (unit costs) will initially decrease as small programs expand. Unit costs may then reach a nadir and start to increase if expansion continues beyond the economically optimal size. Information on the relationship between scale and unit costs is critical to project the cost of global HIV prevention efforts and to allocate prevention resources efficiently. METHODS: The "Prevent AIDS: Network for Cost-Effectiveness Analysis" (PANCEA) project collected 2003 and 2004 cost and output data from 206 HIV prevention programs of six types in five countries...

CONTEXT: Demand for HIV voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) will increase as HIV prevention and treatment scale up in South Africa. Understanding the cost of delivering VCT will inform funding decisions. OBJECTIVE: To determine the cost per client completing VCT (pretest counselling, testing and post-test counselling) in a non-research- based programme using rapid-test technology. DESIGN: One year of expenditure and output data were collected retrospectively as part of the PANCEA (Prevent AIDS: Network for Cost-Effectiveness Analysis) study...

OBJECTIVE: To develop data collection methods suitable to obtain data to assess the costs, cost-efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of eight types of HIV prevention programs in five countries. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Primary data collection from prevention programs for 2002-2003 and prior years, in Uganda, South Africa, India, Mexico, and Russia. STUDY DESIGN: This study consisted of a retrospective review of HIV prevention programs covering one to several years of data...

Between 30% and 60% of patients with epilepsy have not achieved adequate control with current medications, and side effects are a significant problem. In the past 2 years, three drugs for epilepsy have been approved. At least six more drugs are in the final stages of development, and there is an active "pipeline." None of the new drugs are panceas, but many have special advantages and meet important specific needs. Felbamate, despite a high incidence of aplastic anemia and hepatic failure, remains useful because of its lack of sedative effects and high efficacy...

Technetium-99m and/or 111In labelled F(ab')2 fragments of a melanoma associated MoAb 225.28S were injected i.v. in 80 patients affected by stage I to IV malignant melanoma. Seventy five percent of metastatic lesions already documented by other methods were detected by immunoscintigraphy, which was also capable of detecting a certain number of unknown metastases. However, we observed a lower percentage of positive scans in liver, lung and skin because of the poor tumour to background ratio. In some patients, subcutaneous (s...
