This week in PLoS Medicine: Economic burden of diabetes complications; Role of T cell count in HIV treatment; Tool to identify hospital infection clusters; and more!

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including three Research Articles – the first finds that major diabetes complications are a huge economic burden to health care systems across all economic regions, the second finds that the rate of CD4 T cell decline is not useful in deciding when to start HIV treatment, and the third describes the use of a novel automated cluster detection tool, WHONET-SaTScan, made by integrating two freely available software packages, to identify hospital infection clusters.

Also published this week, a Neglected Diseases piece – the final article in a seven part series on treating mental health problems in resource-poor settings – presents  packages of care for treating Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in low- and middle-income countries.

And finally, the February Editorial in which the PLoS Medicine Editors announce that they will no longer consider papers for which support – in whole or in part – for the study or the researchers comes from a tobacco company.

You can comment on, annotate, and rate this week’s PLoS Medicine articles and any of the others in the archive.
