  • Describe how the prophylaxis of key opportunistic infections and the use of antiretroviral agents introduced since 1996 have affected the trajectory and outcomes of HIV disease treatment
  • Discuss two categories of patients with HIV who continue to be at risk for opportunistic infections and for progression to acquired immunodeficiency disease
  • List at least three classes of antiretroviral medications now available, metabolic changes related to them and HIV disease and morphological changes patients taking these medications might experience
