Project Inform, the nation's leading community-based AIDS treatment information and advocacy organization, presents the first comprehensive, user-friendly guide to all the drugs most used by people with HIV/AIDS. This completely updated edition includes profiles of the newest and most recently approved drugs and laboratory tests, including protease inhibitors and viral load tests -- and in-depth discussions on how best to use these advances to create effective, long-term treatment strategies. Acclaimed for its accurate but nontechnical language, the handbook is easily accessible by way of an extensive master index. Features include: Drugs listed by brand or trade name, generic, popular, scientific and experiemental code name, for quick identification under any known name -- along with a full-color photo insert showing every drug listed Drugs grouped together by types of treatment: antiviral, anticancer, antifungal, experimental, immune-based therapy, psychoactive and more Treatment strategies for delaying or overcoming drug resistance, and achieving longterm success Side effects and drug interactions, possible reactions, and warnings An extensive glossary of HIV/AIDS related terms, clearly and concisely defined Unique indications for HIV treatment for children, women (with special cautions during pregnancy) and for the elderly Essential information on choosing a doctor, clinical trials, avoiding medical scams, nutritional strategies, assistance programs, buyers' clubs, hotline numbers including Project Inform's HIV/AIDS National Treatment Hotline (800-822-7422 or 415-558-9051), and much more.
The HIV Drug Book is written expressly for people with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers, friends and family members, and will be invaluable to physicians who must struggle with the overwhelming demands of this rapidly changing field.
