Children and antiretroviral therapy - early intervention v deferring treatment
Posted on: April 23 2008, 11:00 pm

When Should Children with HIV Infection Be Started on Antiretroviral Therapy? - PLoS Medicine Debate
http://medicine.plosjournals.org/perlserv/?request=get-document&doi=10.1371/journal.pmed.0050073&ct=1

Views for and against.

The case for deferring treatment is put by Steven Welch, Consultant in Paediatric HIV and Infectious Diseases, Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham. The case for earlier intervention comes from Di Gibb, Professor in Epidemiology and a Consultant Paediatrician at the Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit. Both present well-argued, easy-to-understand positions.
