With the development of more effective and better tolerated therapies for HIV-1 infection, patients are living longer with this disease. There is high and comparable efficacy among many of the treatment regimens for HIV-1, but they vary in regard to pill burden, dosing frequency, potential long- and short-term side effects, barriers to resistance, and drug interactions. Treatments for patients with HIV-1 must be individualized and choice is based on convenience, side-effect profile, known or suspected resistance, and interactions with concomitant medications, along with the presence or absence of comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease, renal dysfunction, psychiatric illness, and substance-use history.
New Insights into Managing HIV-1 will review the recent updates to the guidelines for the management of HIV-1 infection and present new data on the efficacy/tolerability profiles of various treatment regimens to enhance patient care and optimize overall outcomes.
