Item description for AIDS And the Kidney by Onyekachi Ifudu...

Is the increased susceptibility of blacks to kidney failure from HIV-AIDS explained by biology or socioeconomic variables? Is kidney failure an early or late complication of HIV infection? Are there receptors for HIV in kidney tissue and is the kidney a major reservoir for the virus? Is acute renal failure an inevitable consequence of drug treatment in HIV disease? Should kidney or solid organ transplantation be offered to patients with HIV infection? Can HIV-associated nephrotherapy be prevented or reversed by drug therapy and has HAART eradicated pediatric HIV nephrotherapy? What is the level of risk to staff and other patients in dialysis facilities that treat HIV-infected patients? These questions and other critical issues are addressed in-depth by some of the world's leading basic scientists and clinician researchers in kidney disorders of HIV-AIDS.

Reviews - What do customers think about AIDS And the Kidney?

Just the Facts plus Some Speculation  Feb 4, 2004
Ifudu convenes an impressive cast of knowlegable authorites to recount the terrible toll of AIDS on the kidney while predicting a better future for those afflicted. Whether Africa will be able to withdstand the impact of tens of millions of AIDS cases including thousands with kidney failure is a question to test world resources and the willingness of rich nations to share with the poor. Including updates from those who first described the renal disorder in AIDS, this compendium will brief neophytes while serving as a key source for those who are in the midst of a struggle against a pandemic. So far, no other book is available to cover this still breaking story.
