Format
Thirty years after the first case of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was reported, approximately 33.3 million persons worldwide are living with HIV infection, of which, 1.2 million live in the US. Between 2004 and 2009, the availability of antiretroviral therapy (ART) reduced disease progression and death by 19%, allowing HIV to be managed as a chronic disease rather than a death sentence. Although survival is improved on ART, life expectancy is lower compared to uninfected persons. Drug therapy for HIV infection is complex and still evolving. Potent antiretroviral agents (ARVs) now allow the majority of highly treatment-experienced persons, who have failed multiple regimens, to achieve virus suppression and survival benefits similar to those of treatment-naïve persons. This issue highlights key information about the most frequently prescribed ARVs, and provides some insight into therapeutic decision making. Densely packed with information and extensive tables, it should serve as a reference for current HIV therapy. Clinical pearls are offered throughout the issue.
