ABSTRACT
Purpose. Important articles on topics pertinent to infectious diseases (ID) pharmacotherapy published in prominent peer-reviewed journals in 2010 are summarized. Summary. At the end of 2010, pharmacists, physicians, and researchers in the Houston Infectious Diseases Network were asked to nominate articles published from January through December 2010 that they perceived as having a significant impact in the field of ID pharmacotherapy. The resulting list, comprising 27 articles relating to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease or acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and 52 articles on a broad range of other ID-related topics, was sent to members of the Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP) for evaluation via an Internet survey. The survey participants were asked to select from the list 10 articles unrelated to HIV or AIDS and 1 HIV- or AIDS-related article that in their view had the most significant impact in the field. Of the 380 SIDP members surveyed, 105 (27.6%) ranked the non-HIV-related papers and 45 (11.8%) ranked the HIV-related papers. The 11 highest-ranked publications-including 2 articles presenting updated practice guidelines-are summarized here. Conclusion. Due to the increasing number of articles published each year, it is difficult to maintain a current knowledge of significant publications in the field of ID pharmacotherapy. This review of key publications in 2010 may be helpful to the nonspecialist clinician by lessening this burden.
