BRUSSELS — Jens D. Lundgren, MD, chief physician and director of the Copenhagen HIV Program in Denmark, reviews the updated HIV treatment guidelines released by the European AIDS Clinical Society. The guidelines, which are available in an electronic format, include the recommendation to initiate ART if a treatment-naïve patient’s CD4 count is greater than 350 cells/mcL.
The guidelines also provide additional information on drug-to-drug interactions and account for new antiviral drugs. The mobile application for the new guidelines is now available to download through iTunes and Google Play.
