Challenging and Expanding Paradigms of Aging with HIV

Dates

Start Date: 09/08/2011
End Date: 08/31/2016

People with HIV are living longer, primarily due to effective treatment, and age-related diseases are becoming more common in people with HIV, specifically heart attacks, kidney disease and cancers. This research will examine: 1) differences in the age at diagnosis of these conditions in HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected people; 2) the role of traditional risk factors (i.e. smoking and high blood pressure) and HIV-related risk factors (i.e. CD4 count, hepatitis C and antiretroviral therapy use) in the occurrence of age-related conditions in HIV-infected people; and 3) how the timing of antiretroviral treatment initiation can effect these age-related conditions. This research will impact the health of people living with HIV by identifying ways to reduce their risk of these age-related conditions.
