HIV Treatment Bulletin

US guidelines updated

The latest update of the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) guidelines for the use of antiretroviral agents in HIV-infected adults and adolescents, was released on 14 July.

These guidelines run to around 40 pages of text, 40 pages of tables and 14 pages of references.

Very usefully, changes to the previous guidelines are highlighted throughout the document in yellow . Although dated July 2003 they do don’t include recommendations for the recently approved atazanavir and emtricitabine.
