  • Involuntary Weight Loss: Interview With Lisa Capaldini, M.D.
    This short overview looks at some of the major considerations in treating involuntary weight loss of people with HIV, in 2005.

  • Medicaid Cuts Alert

  • Adult HIV Treatment Guidelines Updated
    The U.S. HIV treatment guidelines were changed to include new drug safety and interaction information, and to include a table on obtaining new antiretrovirals not yet approved but available through expanded access (which only includes tipranavir at this time).


  • In-Depth Medical Reports on the Retroviruses Conference
    The Clinical Care Options site now has six training modules summarizing practical information for physicians, from the Retroviruses conference in February.

  • IOM: Nevirapine Study Is Reliable
    The Institute of Medicine re-analyzed the key study that first showed prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission by single-dose nevirapine. The IOM released a 150-page report concluding that the study was properly conducted and its results are valid.
