This Week in PLoS Medicine: HAART treatment adherence; HIV treatment in Ukraine

Two new articles were published this week in PLoS Medicine, both research articles on studies surrounding antiretroviral therapy.

Michael Chung and colleagues show that intensive early adherence counseling at HAART initiation resulted in sustained, significant impact on adherence and virologic treatment failure, whereas use of an alarm device had no effect.

A study by Sabina Alistar and colleagues evaluated the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of different levels of investment in methadone, antiretroviral therapy, or both, in the mixed HIV epidemic in Ukraine.

Remember you can comment on, annotate and rate any PLoS Medicine article and see the views, citations and other indications of impact of an article on that articles metrics tab.
