New Guidelines on Early HIV Treatment for Patients with Opportunistic Infections

By on .

The benefits of early anti-HIV therapy for patients with an opportunistic infection outweigh the risks, according to new guidelines from the CDC.

 

The guidelines, developed with the NIH and the Infectious Diseases Society of America, say that for most such infections, early antiretroviral therapy will lead to better outcomes.

 

One exception, however, is tuberculosis. When a patient has TB and HIV, it might be better to hold off on HIV treatment until the TB treatment is done.
