Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection often develop multiple complications and comorbidities. Opportunistic infections should always be considered in the evaluation of symptomatic patients with advanced HIV/AIDS, although the overall incidence of these infections has decreased. Primary care of HIV infection includes the early detection of some complications through screening at-risk and symptomatic patients with routine laboratory monitoring (e.g., comprehensive metabolic… Expand
HIV-Associated Complications: A Systems-Based Approach.
TLDR
Family physicians who care for patients with HIV infection have a key role in identifying and managing many of these chronic complications, and new anti-hepatitis C agents produce high rates of sustained virologic response. Expand
Initial Management of Patients with HIV Infection.
TLDR
The scope of initial care, including obtaining a thorough history; physical examination for HIV-associated manifestations; attention to HIV- specific immunization schedules; routine and HIV-specific laboratory evaluation; and ensuring standard health care maintenance to prevent HIV- and non-HIV-related morbidity and mortality are described. Expand
Cardiovascular Disease in the Setting of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
TLDR
Determining the cardiovascular risk among HIV-infected patients, as well as targeting and treating conditions that predispose to CVD, are now emerging concerns among physicians. Expand
Primary care for children and adolescents living with HIV
TLDR
Care of HIV-positive children and adolescents should have special emphasis on evaluation for possible cardiovascular and metabolic complications of HIV infection and its treatment, according to standard age-appropriate healthcare maintenance. Expand
HIV and Noncommunicable Disease Comorbidities in the Era of Antiretroviral Therapy: A Vital Agenda for Research in Low- and Middle-Income Country Settings
TLDR
Some of the challenges and opportunities for addressing HIV and NCD comorbidities in low- and middle-income countries are presented, and the research agenda that emerges from the articles that follow is previewed. Expand
Risk Factor of Human Immunodeficiency virus Encephalopathy in Children
TLDR
It was concluded that HIV prevalence in this study was 44%. Expand
Opportunistic Infections in Aids Patients
TLDR
Current knowledge on epidemiology, clinical features and treatment observed in these diseases are important in the management of patients with HIV and is the focus of this review. Expand
Combination therapy against human infections caused by viruses
TLDR
A number of antiviral agents are in advanced stages of clinical research to be used as combination drugs and they potentially offer promising clinical outcomes by reducing the emergence of resistance, improving antiviral potency, and extending the treatment window. Expand
HIV and aging: a clinical journey from Koch's postulate to the chronic disease model and the contribution of geriatric syndromes.
TLDR
There is an urgent need for increased dialog between different disciplines, ensuring that the care of older HIV-positive individuals is guided by research that incorporates relevant functional outcome measures. Expand
HIV/AIDS in Children: Current Update
TLDR
Every pregnant woman should be tested for HIV to have a better chance of preventing transmission to her unborn child and there is no vaccine to prevent HIV and AIDS although researchers are working to develop one. Expand

TLDR
The point that HIV infection should be considered as a risk factor for bone disease is made and patients with fragility fractures, HIV-infected post-menopausal women, and all HIV- infected men ⩾50 years of age are recommended to be screened. Expand
Gastrointestinal complications of HIV infection: changing priorities in the HAART era
TLDR
It has now been some 25 years since the initial description of AIDS and intense investigation has better characterised HIV, resulting in the development of effective drug therapies to arrest disease progression and, especially in the developing world, the cost and complexities of these regimens.

Highly active antiretroviral therapy and the incidence of HIV-1-associated nephropathy: a 12-year cohort study
TLDR
HAART was associated with a substantial reduction in HIVAN incidence and additional follow-up will be needed to determine if renal damage in susceptible individuals is halted or merely slowed by HAART, particularly when control of viremia is incomplete or intermittent. Expand
