University launches iPhone app to access HIV drug expertise
Date:11/15/2010

The University of Liverpool has launched an i-phone application, HIV iChart,that provides healthcare professionals and HIV patients with instant and easy access to information about drug interactions.

Based on the University-developed website (www.hiv-druginteractions.org), HIV iChart is a tool that provides HIV patients and healthcare professionals with immediate access to information on potential drug interactions between anti-HIV drugs and other medications that a patient with the disease may be taking.

In HIV therapy, patients take a number of anti-HIV medication (antiretrovirals) and may also take other drugs to treat co-existing diseases. Drug interactions can have an impact on the effectiveness of one or both drugs, and may also impact on the severity of the side effects of the medication. For this reason, some drugs should not be used, whilst others must be given with caution, possibly requiring adjustment or monitoring.

Professor David Back, Professor of Pharmacology, said: "We are delighted to launch this application for i-phones that will provide HIV patients and healthcare professionals with instant and easy access to information about HIV drug interactions that is relevant, reliable and up-to-date. HIV iChart can be used on a hospital ward or in a clinic, in primary-care units, health centres and the community. In addition to the HIV drugs interaction website, this new tool will increase awareness of how to manage the disease more effectively."

Dr Ian Williams, Chair of the British HIV Association (BHIVA), said: "This technology provides a marvellous opportunity to greatly increase the ease of access to drug interaction information. This is a way of helping to maintain best practice."

HIV iCharts is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the App store in iTunes (http://i
