More Than the Virus: OIs, Metabolic Complications and AIDS-Related Cancers
Much of the focus of HIV research and treatment is on suppression of the human immunodeficiency virus itself. Unfortunately, it's not just about the virus, damn it.
This issue of ACRIA Update explores a constellation of medical conditions that still confront people living with HIV/AIDS, some largely considered problems of the past. Thousands of individuals in the United States who are living with HIV continue to face the challenges of guarding against opportunistic infections, are in urgent need of effective treatments for HIV-related cancers, and are concerned about the metabolic complications associated with HAART therapies. We are honored to have respected, knowledgeable colleagues write about the latest research findings and advances concerning each of these HIV-associated conditions.
Once again, ACRIA Update also presents unique personal perspectives from people on the front lines of the AIDS war, people who devote themselves to helping others in the community understand treatment issues and access quality care. Three such individuals have shared their experiences attending the 10th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, helping our readers understand how we can all learn about late breaking research advances for HIV and incorporate these new findings into the management of this disease.
