HIV-Infektion und Lipidentgleisung — Gründe und Gegenmaßnahmen

Kardiovaskuläre Erkrankungen

HIV and dyslipidemia - reasons and therapy

Die Infektion mit dem Humanen Immundefizienz-Virus (HIV) führt zu einer bedeutenden Erhöhung des kardiovaskulären Risikos. Im folgenden CME-Kurs erfahren Sie, warum das so ist, und welche therapeutischen Maßnahmen erforderlich sind, um HIV-Patienten möglichst optimal vor kardiovaskulären Ereignissen zu schützen.
