Description

HIV-1 RNA emerges in CSF early in the course of HIV disease. Studies have shown that high levels of HIV-1 RNA in CSF correlate with increased severity of dementia and worsened performance on neuropsychological tests. While combination antiretroviral treatments are potent suppressors of HIV-1 replication in plasma, the extent to which these treatments suppress viral replication in CSF is unknown. A few studies suggest that antiretroviral treatments can reduce HIV-1 RNA in CSF. However, since CSF is isolated from peripheral immune responses to HIV and antiretroviral treatment may not readily ...

  • Are either: 1) starting a new potent antiretroviral therapy for HIV; 2) enrolling in a potent antiretroviral trial; or 3) currently participating in an ongoing antiretroviral trial or in clinical care and will be changing treatment due to treatment failure.
