This book also covers the perspectives of HIV-infected patients who suffer from neurodegeneration. Their perspectives are intriguing and an eye-opener for the researchers in the field of substance of abuse and neuroAIDS. Further, the book highlights several unresolved issues that need to be addressed in order to rescue/decrease AIDS and neuroAIDS development, especially in the populations who regularly consume substances of abuse. Thus, there is a critical need to investigate alternate pathway that is responsible for neuroAIDS associated neurodegeneration among HIV-infected substance of abusers. This would help discover novel interventions as well as drug dose adjustme.. View More»
