24-27 October 2002, Chicago, Illinois

The annual meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) is increasingly associated with high-quality reviews by experts in the field. However, it is less likely to be associated with a large number of novel HIV-related abstracts because of the competition from other HIV-related scientific meetings in the summer and fall.

Nevertheless, a number of interesting and important observations could be gleaned from information presented at this year’s meeting.


  • Cardiovascular risk and HIV disease
  • Treatment of HIV-associated hyperlipidemia
  • Multiple protease inhibitors as salvage therapy
  • Resistance testing in treatment-naive, chronically infected patients
  • Predicting CD4+ cell count in resource-limited countries
  • Clinical indicators of chronic renal failure
