Synopsis

The Guide to Living with HIV Infection Developed at the Johns Hopkins AIDS Clinic by John G. (Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine) Bartlett, Ann K. Finkbeiner

The Guide to Living with HIV Infection is the most complete source of medical, emotional, social, and practical advice available for those infected with HIV and their loved ones. Developed at the Johns Hopkins AIDS Clinic, the guide provides essential information for making decisions about treatment and testing in a world transformed by new research and pharmacotherapy.In this thoroughly updated sixth edition, Dr. John Bartlett and Ann K. Finkbeiner address the latest information about risks of transmission, viral mutations that confer drug resistance, and new, rapid, HIV testing. They offer guidelines for Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART), a therapy protocol that has dramatically increased life expectancy for HIV-positive people. They describe how to follow HAART and when to change drug regimens, the symptoms of and treatments for HAART side effects, and the costs of and insurance coverage for HAART. They also outline the possibilities for a diagnosis of no detectable virus. Accompanied by updated references and resources, the sixth edition of The Guide to Living with HIV Infection offers new hope for people living with a virus that once left no hope at all.

Reviews

An excellent resource for a motivated patient... Written and compiled by people who have genuinely and carefully listened to their patients... An admirable achievement. * AIDS Care * Thoughtful and clearly written... [This] is a wonderful addition to the literature on HIV infection and will fill a very special need for many patients, their families and friends, and their providers. I recommend it highly. -- Gerald H. Friedland, M.D. * Journal of the American Medical Association * An excellent source of information for patients. -- Christine Jamjian * Journal of Pain and Palliative Care Pharmacotherapy *

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!
