The Medscape HIV/AIDS Annual Update 2000 -- based on the Clinical Care Options for HIV Symposium, May 4-7, 2000 -- is on the Web at http://hiv.medscape.com
. This review, written for AIDS physicians by leading experts, is important because of this Symposium's clinical focus -- on practical issues in the doctor's office, more than on research.
