Treatment strategies

Current or former injecting drug use is not related to earlier switch or discontinuation of HAART compared to non-IDU patients since 1999

HIV viraemia may explain increased risk of cardiovascular disease, death and other serious events in patients interrupting treatment in the SMART trial: new study to randomise patients with CD4 counts >500 to start immediate treatment or defer to <350 cells/mm3

CD4 increases in immunological non-responders despite suppressive therapy following switch to nuke-sparing regimen of ATZ/SQV/r

Autologous stem cells transplant (ASCT) in HIV-positive individuals with a relapsed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) or Hodgkin’s disease (HD)

Treatment interuption arm in DART trial is stopped early

Simplification to atazanavir/ritonavir monotherapy

Summary of STI studies: SMART shows clear increased risk from interrupting treatment at any CD4 count

Treatment in primary HIV infection

Therapeutic vaccinations and treatment interruptions

Improved clinical outcome in 80% patients who modified an NNRTI or PI dose following therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM)

Another chance for 3TC in patients with M184V mutation?

Kaletra monotherapy: small studies and early data

Interruption of treatment is safe for those who started too early

STIs in resource limited settings

Studies and strategies with existing drugs

Treatment interruption prior to five-drug regime shows no benefit at 48 weeks

Failure of alternating week-on and week-off therapy

Treatment interruption shows no benefit in drug-resistant HIV infection

Treatment interruption: a real choice

Nucleoside-sparing regimens

Lessons learned from early HAART in acute HIV infection

Gender differences in rates and reasons for stopping treatment

Immune reconstitution in older HIV-positive individuals

Treatment interruptions: cycles, pauses, are just plain stopping?

The advantages of fosamprenavir; comparing saquinavir/r to lopinavir/r; reducing viral load to <3 copies; AZT-d4T cross resistance; and rising HCV rates

Immunology and treatment interruption data presented at the 42nd ICAAC

Treatment interruptions may result in poor T-cell recovery in patients with nadir CD+ count <50 cells/mm3

Treatment interruptions are safe in patients with CD4+ count between 300 to 500 cells/mm3 and viral loads lower than 70,000 copies/mL
