    The article examines the use of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in treating human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The development of ART led to the launch of highly active ART (HAART). HAART, a combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs, is the global standard of care in the...

    This report describes a case in which a patient took at least four months to seroconvert to anti-HIV positivity. A concomitant CMV infection probably contributed to the profound immune suppression observed. It is essential that fourth generation HIV antigen/antibody combo assays be used to...

    The range and extent of neurologic and neurobehavioral complications of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) infection in children are under-described. Seventy-eight children with HIV-1 infection (32 females) were assessed for neurologic complications. Forty-six children had abnormal neurology...

    The optimal time to initiate antiretroviral therapy (ART) in patients presenting with HIV-associated tuberculosis has been a controversial issue. Early initiation of ART may be complicated by high pill burden, overlapping drug toxicities, and an increased risk of immune reconstitution...

    Shared transmission routes of HCV and HIV mean parenteral HIV/HCV coinfection still occurs, often in resource-limited settings. The extent to which coinfection and treatment impact on morbidity and mortality in HIV/HCV coinfected children remains unknown thus optimal management and treatment is...
