Excerpt

Understanding the evolution of drug resistance and how to use available diagnostic assays and interpret their results optimally are important aspects of the management of HIV-1-infected patients. This book is aimed at physicians, scientists and other healthcare professionals who wish to gain information about the clinically relevant aspects of antiretroviral resistance.

This book gives the reader insights into the more mechanistic aspects of resistance and the analyses that lie behind the interpretation of resistance. Most importantly, the book aims to provide an up-to-date guide to those aspects of resistance that have the greatest impact on clinical care. The authors of the chapters have internationally recognised expertise in the field of resistance and were chosen because of both their active involvement in research and their strong clinical background. The reader will find their contributions clear, concise and informative, whereas the discussion around the case studies presented in the last chapter will bring the topic into a direct clinical context.
