Individuals with HIV-1 infection are at increased risk for cardiovascular events, and lipodystrophy is generally associated with pro-atherogenic metabolic disturbances. We conducted a case-control study to assess the presence of sub-clinical atherosclerosis in HIV-1-infected patients with or without lipodystrophy (LD) and to evaluate the influence of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) on the development of both carotid atherosclerosis and LD. The study population consisted of 43… CONTINUE READING
