Columbia Study Shows Atherosclerosis in HIV Patients Linked to Infection, Not Treatment

HIV infection, not antiretroviral therapy (ART), is associated with risk for atherosclerosis in patients with no history of smoking, particularly those infected for eight years or more. Results of the study led by Dr. Moïse Desvarieux, of Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and at the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM), are published in the latest issue of the journal AIDS.
