By Topic:

The 46th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
Podcast Central at ICAAC 2006

We asked three of the top U.S. HIV clinicians to give us their take on some of the most critical issues in HIV, including:

  • When should HIV therapy be initiated?

  • How do you choose an initial regimen?

  • What are the risks and benefits of structured treatment interruptions?

  • Why are people so excited about MK-0518, Merck's new integrase inhibitor?

Listen to each podcast to hear what these experts had to say. (Transcripts for each podcast are also available.)
