Five new articles published this week in PLOS Medicine:

Jill Fisher and Corey Kalbaugh describe their findings from a qualitative study evaluating the motivations of private-sector physicians conducting contract research for the pharmaceutical industry.

In a systematic review and meta-analysis, Amitabh Suthar and colleagues investigate the association between antiretroviral therapy and the reduction in incidence of TB in adults with HIV infection.

Jane Hirst and colleagues examined the prevalence and outcome of gestational diabetes mellitus in urban Viet Nam and find that choice of criteria greatly affected prevalence, and has implications for the ability of the health system to cope with the number of cases.

Yanis Ben Amor and Timothy Sullivan call for more research to examine whether the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes in TB patients may improve TB outcomes and patient survival.

Andrew Prendergast and colleagues consider the evidence for a change in policy for the treatment of young children infected with HIV.
