The care of HIV-infected patients has evolved dramatically over the past several years. What was previously a progressive disease manifested by opportunistic infections and neoplasms is now a treatable chronic medical condition in many patients. However, the significant changes in management that prompted this transformation, including combination antiretroviral therapy, viral load measurement, and resistance testing, have resulted in important challenges for clinicians. Drug resistance and long-term treatment complications have become common concerns. This second edition of HIV (1st ed., CH, Oct'00), the initial volume of the American College of Physicians' new "Therapy" series, provides the latest essential information for the primary care of HIV-infected patients. All chapters, written by a team of authors with established clinical, teaching, and research expertise, have been thoroughly updated to incorporate the latest research into clinical practice. Unique to this edition are new chapters that address drug-resistance testing, long-term treatment complications, and HIV in special populations (women, minorities, injection-drug users). An effort has been made to present a reasonable approach to management based on recent medical literature and accepted standards of clinical practice. A valuable resource for anyone interested in the medical aspects of HIV disease. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. J. M. Howe Veterans Administration
