Better tolerability. More convenient dosing. Less serious side effects. Fewer potential drug-drug interactions. These are some of the most common reasons why individuals living with HIV want or need to change their currently successful ART regimens. But what do clinicians need to consider when determining which ART to switch to? What role do the patient’s comorbidities play in the selection process? How do changes in the patient’s condition not related to HIV affect the safety and efficacy of their current regimen? What does the evidence say? Join us in this eHIV Review podcast for a case-based discussion with Dr. Natasha Chida, from the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, about these increasingly important issues. Claim CME/CEU credit: Critical Factors When Switching ART | DKBmed See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Nearly two of three new HIV infections in the United States appear in transgender women and men who have sex with men (MSM), with most transmission coming from people unaware of their infection. What should clinicians do to increase the rate of HIV screening in these populations to meet guideline recommendations? In this eHIV Review podcast, Dr. Robert Goldstein from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital takes us to the clinic to explain how HIV risk in these special populations can be identified and infection prevented. Take our post-test to claim CME credits.
