Abstract

Although anti-retroviral therapy (ART) has prolonged survival in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons, an increase in cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been observed. A frequent complication of ART is the development of lipodystrophy (LD) that may be associated with CVD. We assessed the contribution of chronic HIV infection, ART use and LD to the presence and extent of sub-clinical atherosclerosis as evaluated by coronary artery calcium (CAC) imaging.
