HIV Drug Book Revised

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.
