Research and Review Articles on Vaccines, Mental Health Topics, Counseling, and Anti-retroviral Therapy Highlight the Latest Issues.

New York, NY (August 15, 2006) – According to a 2005 report from the World Health organization, more than 40.3 million people are living with HIV; and last year more than three million people died of AIDS-related illnesses. Healthcare professionals and others in the field need to keep up-to-date on the latest research. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW), a leading international publisher of health information resources and a Wolters Kluwer Health business, publishes three of the leading HIV/AIDS journals available today, AIDS, Current Opinion in HIV and AIDS, and JAIDS: Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. All three journals are available online exclusively from Ovid Technologies, LWW’s sister company within Wolters Kluwer Health.

Representatives from LWW will be on hand to discuss the journals at the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2006), the world’s largest HIV/AIDS event, which is being held in Toronto, Canada from Saturday, August 13th through Friday, August 18th.

AIDS is the official journal of the International AIDS Society, a membership organization of researchers and healthcare professionals dedicated to stopping the spread of HIV and one of the organizers of AIDS 2006. AIDS is the most highly cited of all AIDS-related journals and publishes the latest scientific, clinical, epidemiological, and social research findings eighteen times annually. The latest issue, Volume 20, Issue 1, includes a review of mental health topics in care and treatment programs in developing countries, an analysis of the effectiveness of alternative HIV counseling, and a report on trends in cancer risk for people with AIDS.

Current Opinion in HIV and AIDS offers short, concise, critical reviews of current international research literature. Published bimonthly, it features one topic per issue, focusing on basic and clinical science and identifying key developments and papers that immediately impact general practice. Current Opinion in HIV and AIDS debuted in January 2006 and is part of LWW’s Current Opinion series in clinical medicine. The latest issue (July) examines HIV vaccines, with reviews of recent trends in clinical trials, DNA vaccines, and more. The September issue is scheduled to look at new targets in anti-retro viral therapy.

JAIDS: Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes brings together peer-reviewed original articles, reviews of current research, and clinical trials results with a strong focus on molecular biology, cell biology, epidemiology, and clinical virology. Each issue discusses advances in diagnosis and treatment of HIV and non-HIV infections, therapeutics, and vaccines, among other topics. The current issue covers anti-retroviral therapy interruption, survival without therapy among HIV-infected children in Zambia, the use of educational videos in clinical trials, and more.

The International AIDS Conference is the world’s largest HIV/AIDS conference, providing an open and independent forum for the global exchange of ideas, knowledge, and research, which will inform HIV/AIDS programs and strengthen prevention, treatment, and care efforts worldwide. This year, approximately 20,000 scientists; healthcare providers; political, community, and business leaders; journalists; government, non-governmental, and inter-governmental representatives; as well as individuals living with HIV/AIDS are expected to participate at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario from August 13th-August 18th.
