Abstract

: Definitive data on the long-term success of the latest antiretroviral therapy (ART) strategies are still lacking. A panel of infectious diseases specialists was convened to develop a consensus on how to tailor and follow ART over time. Panelists used a Delphi technique to develop a list of statements describing preferred management approaches for ART and patient monitoring and quality of life evaluation. Ninety infectious diseases specialists from several Infectious Diseases Centers in Italy participated in the consensus process. A consensus was reached on virological and immunological parameters to use to monitor long-term efficacy of antiretroviral treatment, while there was no consensus on the use of specific inflammation and immune-activation markers in clinical routine. The panel agreed on the need for an antiretroviral treatment with the lowest impact on bone, kidney and cardiovascular toxicity and on the utility of quality-of-life monitoring during the standard follow up of people living with HIV. The consensus statements developed by a panel of infectious diseases specialists may provide guidance to practitioners for a person-centered approach aimed at obtaining long-term virological and clinical success for people living with HIV.
