March 9, 2009

Conference Coverage
Podcasts From CROI 2009
Featured Podcast: CROI 2009 Highlights: A Review of Cardiovascular Disease and HIV
David Wohl, M.D.

How big a problem is heart disease for people with HIV? Just as important is what's causing it: HIV meds, the virus itself, or both? Read or listen as David Wohl, M.D., walks us through some of the most important research on heart disease presented at a recent HIV medical conference. The conference included a few studies that may change the landscape of HIV care: One study, for instance, suggests that HIV poses a danger similar to that of traditional heart disease risk factors, while other studies highlighted new ways that doctors may be able to assess an HIVer's heart risk.
