Palliative medicine and HIV/AIDS


, : Palliative medicine and HIV/AIDS. Primary Care 24(3): 607-615

This article provides an introduction to the field of palliative medicine as it applies to the care of HIV/AIDS. Issues of pain management, end-of-life care, ethics, and bereavement are discussed with the intention of providing the primary care physician additional resources in the provision of care to patients with HIV/AIDS.

A common misconception about sexual assault is that the rapist is motivated by a sexual desire stimulated by a victim seductive in her behavior or dress. A retrospective analysis of 740 reported sexual assaults revealed 21 cases involving a victim...

We used a new model type of detritus to observe and quantify the uptake of detrital particles by bacterivorous and omnivorous ciliates. It consisted of freshly prepared, fluorescently labeled dead organic particles. To represent autochthonous dead...

Endothelial regeneration and dyslipidemia impair endothelium-dependent relaxation, while supplementation with fish oil (FO) prevents it.

Varghese, B.; McKee, G.; Alexandrov, V., 2014: Automating fault tolerance in high-performance computational biological jobs using multi-agent approaches. Large-scale biological jobs on high-performance computing systems require manual intervention if one or more computing cores on which they execute fail. This places not only a cost on the maintenance of the job, but also a cost on the time taken f...

We study the energy band structure of magnetic graphene superlattices with delta-function magnetic barriers and zero average magnetic field. The dispersion relation obtained using the T-matrix approach shows the emergence of an infinite number of...
