Comparison of nevirapine- and efavirenz-containing antiretroviral regimens in antiretroviral-naïve patients: a cohort study.
TLDR
EFV-containing antiretroviral regimens were associated with superior clinical outcome, as measured by time to treatment failure, which is commensurate with other large cohort studies comparing EFV and NVP. Expand
Long‐Term Impact of Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy on HIV‐Related Health Care Costs
TLDR
There was an increase in the total monthly cost of caring for HIV patients, primarily due to antiretroviral treatment costs, but these costs were offset by a marked decrease in inpatient‐related costs. Expand
Comparison of symptoms of influenza A with abacavir-associated hypersensitivity reaction
TLDR
Multivariate analysis confirmed the following associations for abacavir hypersensitivity: the number of gastrointestinal symptoms, cough, and cough without GI symptoms, which are strongly associated with influenza. Expand
Traumatic joint infection due to Geotrichum candidum.
Protease inhibitor-based therapy is associated with decreased HIV-related health care costs in men treated at a Veterans Administration hospital.
TLDR
PI therapy is associated with decreased hospital days and use of outpatient services and increases in the number of nucleoside agents prescribed were not associated with decreases costs. Expand
Long-term impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy on HIV-related health care costs.
TLDR
There was an increase in the total monthly cost of caring for HIV patients, primarily due to antiretroviral treatment costs, but these costs were offset by a marked decrease in inpatient-related costs. Expand
Cutaneous tuberculosis of the penis in an HIV-infected adult.
TLDR
A patient who was diagnosed with HIV and achieved virological suppression on antiretroviral therapy and subsequently stopped his therapy and travelled to a TB-endemic area, demonstrating the rarity of penile TB and cutaneous TB in association with HIV. Expand
Abacavir sulfate/lamivudine/zidovudine fixed combination in the treatment of HIV infection
TLDR
The combination of abacavir sulfate/lamivudine/zidovudine is an important part of the HIV armamentarium, and its potency and ease of administration make it worth consideration in the treatment of HIV, either by itself or in combination with other agents. Expand
Time to virological failure with atazanavir/ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir, with or without an H2-receptor blocker, not significantly different in HIV observational database study
TLDR
A retrospective electronic database study was conducted to determine any differences in time to virological failure among HIV-infected patients concurrently receiving H2-blockers versus patients not receiving these agents while receiving atazanavir (ATV) or lopinavir (LPV)/r-containing antiretroviral treatment regimens.
