Les fantastiques progrès médicaux des dix dernières années ont bouleversé le pronostic de l'infection VIH/SIDA de telle sorte qu'à los angeles d'un traitement impeccablement suivi et surveillé par des équipes spécialisées, on peut à l'heure actuelle parler de chronicité de cette maladie et envisager que les sufferers infectés par le VIH puissent bénéficier d'une survie à peine différente de celle d'une inhabitants générale. À quelques stipulations près cependant : celles de minimiser le poids des comorbidités induites par le VIH ou par les traitements.

En effet, ces traitements sont associés à des effets secondaires et potentiellement à un risque de problems au lengthy cours. Un progrès very important fut d'identifier et de cerner los angeles responsabilité de certaines molécules antirétrovirales dans los angeles genèse des problems et d'en évaluer les moyens de prévention comme ce fut le cas des problems responsables de lipodystrophie moins fréquente actuellement. Les toutes dernières années ont été fondamentales en ce sens qu'elles nous ont appris, à travers des essais ou des études de cohortes mondiales, que le virus VIH lui-même pouvait être responsable de comorbidités telles que les atteintes cardio-vasculaires, les atteintes osseuses ou rénales. Quelle néfaste concordance que le virus VIH et les molécules anti-VIH partagent certains effets toxiques, renforçant leurs conséquences délétères 

La survie allongée des sufferers séropositifs fait d'ores et déjà surgir des questions nouvelles : quel est l'impact du virus sur le vieillissement ? Quelles conséquences éventuelles sur les fonctions neurocognitives, sur los angeles survenue de cancers ? Autant de questions qui vont constituer assurément, au cours des prochaines années, des pistes majeures d'investigation en recherche clinique et fondamentale.

Cet ouvrage est le fruit des connaissances actuelles racontées par des spécialistes, scientifiques et médecins de terrain, specialists chacun dans leur domaine et dans le VIH. Cet ouvrage prolonge los angeles réflexion de ces mêmes specialists au sein du groupe de travail sur les problems et comorbidités liées au VIH du rapport Yéni 2008.
