This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Thanks to advances in Anti-Retrovial Drugs (ARTs), HIV is treatable and those who have the disease are often able to lead a normal life. However, as a chronic (and incurable) infectious disease, HIV positive patients are susceptible to neuropsychiatric complications. These complications reduce the quality of life for the individual and exponentially increases the cost of medical care and medications to treat both conditions. Neuropsychiatric Complications of HIV examines these neuropsychiatric complications prevalent in those who are HIV positive, providing clinical correlation, translational significance, and details guides to neurocognitive assessment, brain imaging, and related neuropharmacology. Written for clinicians, researchers, and students working with HIV and AIDS, the book begins with the biology of HIV, a complete look at available ARTs and antibodies, as well as diagnostics tools for HIV. It continues on to the epidemiology of NeuroAIDs and the manifestations of it-cognitive deficits, dementia, depression, agitation, psychosis, and cognitive slowing. Includes at-a-glance flow charts for clinical strategy Presents Review Questions to enhance the understanding of content Calls out Translational Significance in each chapter Examines ethical issues and possible solutions Provides extensive list of online resources for related subject material
