Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first reference to collect the latest research and reviews on the treatment and pathogenesis of heart disease in AIDS patients, this reference attempts to improve the diagnosis, management, and therapy of HIV-associated heart failure by studying the prolonged effects of immunosuppression and opportunistic and viral infection, as well as cofactors affecting heart disease such as drug-related cardiotoxicity, cocaine abuse, and nutritional deficiencies on cardiac function.

Book News Annotation:

Because most AIDS patients are children or relatively young adults, heart disease was never expected to be a problem for them, but in fact over half have significant signs of cardiac damage upon autopsy. US and European researchers in various specialties of medicine and biology review the mechanisms by which HIV infects the target endothelial cells, damages the heart and related vascular systems, and facilitates the destructive effects of other pathogens. They also explain the cardio-toxic side effects of current AIDS therapies, such as changes in body fat, and present ideas for mediating them. The studies cover cardiovascular complications and in vitro models, nutrition in causation and prevention, drug abuse and retroviral heart disease, lipodystrophy and AIDS, and animal models.
