Mitochondrial Toxicity: Report on the Web
June 23, 2001
A 67-page background report on mitochondrial toxicity -- widely suspected though not proven to be a basic cause of many serious side effects of certain antiretrovirals -- has been published on the Web by the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research. Since this paper reports on a meeting that took place June 5-6, 2000, readers should also check more current information.
Topics include background on mitochondrial dysfunction, clinical aspects in adults and children, and diagnosis and therapeutics.
The report is available at http://www.hivforum.org; currently it's under "Publications and Reports," then under "Metabolic Abnormalities."
