Furthermore, its long-term reliability is not well documented, particularly in diverse populations with CNS-relevant disease. OBJECTIVE We examined test-retest reliability of the WRAT-3 RR over time in an HIV+(More)
AIMS To describe neurocognitive function among opioid-dependent adults seeking buprenorphine treatment and to explore the impact of lifetime psychiatric conditions on neurocognitive function. To explore the additive interaction of patient-based characteristics that may help to inform treatment. DESIGN Cross-sectional assessment of neurocognitive function,(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and the treatment of HCV with pegylated interferon and ribavirin (IFN/RBV) have been associated with neurocognitive and psychiatric abnormalities. The goal of this research was to prospectively evaluate neurocognitive functioning among a group of HCV mono-infected and HIV/HCV co-infected(More)
