HIV und Komorbidität


Hasse, Barbara; Bernasconi, Enos; Furrer, Hansjakob; Eyer, Myriam M; Kovari, Helen (2014). HIV und Komorbidität. Therapeutische Umschau. Revue thérapeutique, 71(8):483-489.

Abstract

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has improved quality of life and increased life expectancy of HIV-infected individuals. Opportunistic diseases are less common, and mortality has declined. Consequently, patterns of mortality and morbidity are changing among the HIV-positive population. The focus of care has shifted to ART-related problems and to various non-AIDS diseases. Such comorbidities, often occurring sequentially or concurrently, may be the consequences of long term ART toxicity, a state of chronic inflammation due to HIV infection, lifestyle-related risks for disease, and aging. The emergence of non-AIDS related conditions highlights the important role of primary care physicians, especially of those with extensive experience in HIV management.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
