June 23, 2001

A 54-page background report on bone disease in persons with HIV (including avascular necrosis, and also osteopenia) can be found in Bone Metabolism and HIV Disease Meeting Report, published by the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research.

Contents include:

  • Bone disease and HIV

  • Overview of the local regulation of bone

  • Crosstalk: Bone and the Immune System

  • Cytokine aspects of bone biology

  • Increased prevalence of avascular necrosis in HIV-infected adults, and

  • Bone metabolism in HIV Disease: New and old paradigms

This paper reports on a meeting that occurred August 29, 2000, so readers should also check more recent information.

The report is available at http://www.hivforum.org; currently it's under "Publications and Reports," then under "Metabolic Abnormalities." Note that Forum reports are more focused on research policy than on practical treatment or management information.
