A new analysis of the pandemic revealed progress in sub-Saharan Africa in particular, but troubling trends in the former Soviet region. The massive worldwide push to diagnose and successfully treat people with HIV is showing signs of steady progress as the power of antiretrovirals (ARVs) not only to save lives but also to prevent transmission of the virus continues to bear fruit.
The late aughts were a vexing time for HIV prevention in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that the virus’s overall annual transmission rate had remained stagnant for nearly two decades. Diagnosis rates were rising among men who have sex with men (MSM), who had become increasingly lax about condom use since the introduction of effective antiretroviral (ARV) treatment for HIV ended the crisis years of the epidemic in 1996.
People who start antiretroviral (ARV) treatment for HIV and reach an undetectable viral load within nine months have a low chance of experiencing a viral load greater than 200, considered a viral rebound. The new analysis that reached this conclusion included in its definition of viral rebound an HIV treatment interruption of a month or longer as well as those viral loads above 200 that occur when someone is still on ARVs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
