The 12th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections
FEBRUARY 22-25, 2005

Conference Highlights

SALVAGE THERAPY: Options continue to expand for patients who are resistant to most available antiretrovirals. Since the introduction of HAART, the incidence of treatment failure has actually been falling. Plus, there is a bevy of new drugs flowing through the antiretroviral pipeline, and physicians' ability to individually tailor HAART regimens is improving. This comprehensive report of recent research related to salvage therapy, written by Dr. Keith Henry, provides the latest word on this challenging subject.

SWITCHING THERAPY: Looking for an in-depth discussion of HIV treatment switching and simplification studies presented at CROI 2005? Edwin DeJesus, M.D., analyzes key switch/simplification presentations from CROI, while David Wohl, M.D., provides select case studies with relevance to clinicians and other healthcare providers.
