Welcome to the Clinique médicale l’Actuel’s JOURNAL CLUB.
For more than 20 years, the Clinique médicale l’Actuel under the medical direction of Dr. Réjean Thomas, has been bringing together healthcare professionals, with a focus in virology, to learn from guest experts and discuss the most relevant clinical practice challenges facing them today.
In this program, Dr. Marc Poliquin sits down with Dr. Jürgen Rockstroh from Bonn University, Germany, to discuss antiretrovirals in the treatment of HIV and hepatitis C coinfection and the role that integrate inhibitors play in their treatment.
Dr. Rockstroh further explains how to treat these co-infected patients and the role that the host of new drugs now used in combination to cure patients with hepatitis C also play.
