US paediatric, adult and maternal-child guidelines updated
1 December 2003. Related: Antiretrovirals.
US guidelines have been updated, largely to include information on recently approved drugs (T20, atazanavir and FTC) and newly identified interactions (triple-nucleoside, atazanavir etc). The paediatric guidelines also have substantial changes in other sections.
The guidelines are now available in pdf file and html format, and very helpfully all new changes are highlighted with yellow background text in the pdf and bold text in the html versions.
