The most comprehensive and definitive guide to HIV and AIDS, with the latest information on treatment, including protease inhibitors.

From the leading foundation for AIDS research, a comprehensive guide to help readers understand the complexities of HIV/AIDS and provide the latest information on combination therapy. The AmFAR AIDS Handbook picks up where other books on AIDS leave off. It is the book you will turn to for a greater understanding of this disease, its causes and effects, and what new treatment options are being developed. How is HIV transmitted? When should antiviral treatment begin? Should treatment ever be stopped? How do protease inhibitors work? How does the disease differ in men, women, and children? This guide incorporates the latest research findings-including those on combination drug therapy-and answers all your questions in language comprehensible to nonscientists. AmFAR (American Foundation for AIDS Research) is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of laboratory and clinical research on AIDS, AIDS prevention, and advocacy for sound AIDS-related public policy. It has given out over $140 million to more than 1700 research teams. Elizabeth Taylor is the founding national chairman and Dr. Mathilde Krim is the founding co-chair and chairman of the board.

About the Author:

Darrell E Ward (b. 1947) is an author and editor. He wrote for Frontiers, a magazine for a professional audience about research and clinical advances at the OSUCCC-James. He is the President of Better Healthcare for Africa.

Mathilde Krim founded the AIDS Medical Foundation (AMF) in 1983 and is the is the founding co-chair/chairman of the board for amfAR. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2000.

From Library Journal:

Dr. Mathilde Krim, who wrote the introduction, and AmFAR are both trusted names in the field of AIDS, and both have put their name to Ward's new handbook. Ward, a senior medical writer for the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Ohio State University and author of The Cancer Handbook (Ohio State Univ., 1995), has written this text mainly for those with HIV/AIDS but also for public health workers, counselors, family members, and others who deal with HIV-related illness. He takes scientific concepts and brings them down to a lay level without making them simplistic. The book has three main sections: basic information about HIV/ AIDS; medical information on cells, the immune system, viruses, genes, and the history of AIDS; and a glossary and appendixes on where to get more information on the disease and its 1993 classification systems. An important resource; recommended for public and medical libraries.
