In this well-designed case-cohort study of age-matched HIV-infected and -uninfected older adults with HIV from the MACS group, a measurable decline in cognitive function was seen in older infected patients.
Two high impact medical journals included Editorials on HIV and Aging. The Editorials observe that as the number of older adults with HIV increases, clinicians and people living with HIV, need to assess what it means to have a “healthy life expectancy.”
A cross-sectional study assessed 3258 adults (2248 MSM, 373 heterosexual men, and 637 women) with HIV in the UK. Median age was 45, 56% reported physical symptoms of distress; 27% depression; 22% anxiety; 38% functional problems.
National surveys were used to assess the distribution and characteristics of malignancy-related deaths among HIV patients in 2010, and compared them to 2000 and 2005. Cancer is the leading cause of mortality in the HIV-infected patients studied.
A randomized control trial assessed HIV knowledge, treatment, beliefs and attitude of women who had previously received PMTCT (prevention-of-mother-to-child-transmission) [PMTCT] and were about to commence ART.
A recent systematic review examined the safety and effectiveness of aerobic exercise interventions on several health outcomes in HIV-infected adults. This was an update of a previous systematic 2010 review of 14 studies.
