HOME Scientific Reaserch

From the beginning of its activity, DREAM has accompanied its commitment to health to an intense work of operational research, aimed above all at demonstrating the feasibility of excellent care in an African environment. In recent years, many contributions have been published in specialized international scientific journals and many collaborations have been born and grown with national and international universities and research bodies.
The most significant stages of this research path are described on this page.

Nonostante l’anemia sia un noto fattore associato all’infezione da HIV, l’emocromo non è eseguito di routine in molti paesi africani ai pazienti con HIV. I risultati di questa ricerca sottolineano come l’esecuzione di un gruppo più ampio di parametri ematologici come routine nei pazienti con HIV in Africa, potrebbe fornire informazioni di grande utilità per la gestione clinica del paziente e sarebbe in grado di predire precocemente esiti sfavorevoli.
