In this expert presentation, Dr Graeme Moyle from the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London discusses the current recommendations for HIV patients >50 years old. Just like the general ageing population, people with HIV develop comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, bone disease, liver disease and other non-communicable diseases. In this expert presentation Dr Moyle reviews how addressing these comorbidities is crucial and the European Guidelines for treatment of HIV-positive adults in Europe (EACS) provide a clear guide.

Future developments in antimicrobial agents
Professor David Livermore highlights increasing resistance and the major bacterial challenges we face. Beta-lactams, the most widely used antibiotic are losing their efficacy. However, there is hope for antimicorbial agents. Cefiderocol, murepavadin and gepotidacin/zoliflodacin all show promise in replacing spent antibiotics. Further, non-antibiotic approaches and improved molecular diagnostics, while not currently comprehensive, could revolutionise the field.
