 A prospective descriptive study was designed to determine the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in the evolution of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in HIV-1 infected patients.

Optimal treatment for HIV-related visceral leishmaniasis (VL) has still to be established. A pilot clinical trial was carried out in 57 HIV-VL coinfected patients to compare the efficacy and safety of amphotericin B lipid complex (ABLC) versus meglumine antimoniate. The patients were randomized to receive either ABLC 3 mg/kg/day for 5 days (ABLC-5, 18(More)
