Overview

The rapidly proliferating research on the human immunodefficiency viru s (HIV) and, as a direct result, the increasing variety of methods in the prevention and treatment of AIDS has made it difficult for physici ans to keep abreast of the optimal management approaches in the field. The HIV Manual is an immensely practical, accesible, and up-to-date s ummary of the wide range of clinically relevant information on HIV-inf ected adults. It deals with the key issues and frequently encountered problems in HIV research, and includes a special section on the sympto m-based approach to treatment. In addition, this concise reference con tains several chapters discussing topics not typically covered in simi lar books on the subject, such as HIV testing, the initial evaluation, future anti-HIV therapies, alternative therapies, and nutrition.
