    Abstract: As COVID-19 has spread from the first reported cases into a global pandemic, there has been a number of efforts to understand the mutations and clusters of genetic lineages of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The high mutation rate and rapid spread makes this analysis capable of tracking chains of infections as well as putting individual sequences in context.... Show More

    Abstract: The use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) transformed HIV infection to a chronic disease, and the complexity of the physiological disorders generated leads to the disruption of body fat distribution and insulin resistance. The resulting metabolic syndrome has rarely been investigated among people living with HIV/AIDS in Cameroon. The ... Show More
