The easily accessible text offers infectious disease specialists and other health care professionals with an excellent quick reference tool, with full color tables and figures enhancing the text further. HIV is a chronic disease that affects the immune system, leading to AIDS. As treatments have progressed and patients with HIV are living longer a new aspect has to be taken in to consideration when treating HIV and other conditions. Comorbidities are rife within older adults with HIV, as many of the treatments for HIV cause long-term side effects, such as heart conditions and cancer. Special consideration must be taken to ensure no toxic drug-drug interactions between treatments
