Overview

Our understanding of HIV is constantly increasing, and practice standards continue to evolve. What was previously a progressive disease with frequent debilitating complications is now, for many patients, a treatable chronic medical condition. The resulting changes in patient management present important challenges to practicing physicians. HIV, the initial volume in ACP's new Therapy series, is a thorough updating of the same-titled volume published in 2000. The successful reception of its predecessor has necessitated this revised and updated Second Edition. All chapters have been considered afresh and rewritten in light of the latest research. Among the major issues addressed are antiretroviral therapy, opportunistic infections and cancers, and common clinical syndromes. Unique to this edition are chapters on drug-resistance testing, long-term treatment complications, and HIV in special populations (women, minorities, injection-drug users). Written by a team of authors with established clinical, teaching, and research expertise, HIV provides the latest essential information for the primary care of HIV-infected patients.
