Volume 6 Number 4 April 2005

The i-Base website has been redesigned – please have a look and tell us what you think…

The new site includes 2005 editions of three of the i-Base treatment guides.

Included with the distribution of this issue of HTB is the new edition of the i-Base Guide to Avoiding and Managing Side Effects.

This is the third edition of a booklet that was first produced in 2001. Since then over 50,000 copies have been distributed in the UK and it has been translated into French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Bulgarian, Slovak and Greek.

This edition has been updated to include T-20, atazanavir, tenofovir, fosamprenavir and FTC in addition to the previous information on older treatments. The section on lipodystrophy and metabolic changes has been revised and expanded and a new section added on the risk of heart disease and stroke.

The booklets are written in a non-technical language.

They are free for clinics and hospitals to order in bulk for their patients. Please order online.

Updated editions of HIV, Pregnancy and Women’s Health and Changing Treatment: what to do when treatment fails will be distributed in the May issue of HTB.

Both these new editions are already on the i-Base website in html format and are available to download as pdf files.

Links to other websites are current at date of posting but not maintained.
