Summary

More than two decades into the global HIV epidemic, many HIV positive patients who have access to antiretroviral medications are graying. These patients and their clinicians now face another set of complex health issues related to aging. HIV and Aging examines the known effects of HIV and HIV medications on older patients and on their immune systems. The book explores the coalescence of aging and HIV on neurologic, psychiatric, cardiovascular, endocrine, renal, and pulmonary systems and oncology.

Written by some of today’s top experts, HIV and Aging answers questions like:

  • What are the similarities with immune system changes that occur with aging and those associated with HIV?
  • What effects do HIV and HIV medications have on cardiovascular health?
  • What do we know about drug interactions between antiretrovirals and medicines used to treat diseases of aging?
