OBJECTIVE HIV infection is associated with increased rates of cardiovascular disease. We sought to evaluate whether initiation of HIV therapy at higher nadir CD4(+) T-cell counts might reduce cardiovascular risk, as measured by arterial stiffness. DESIGN We conducted a cross-sectional study of 80 HIV-infected men who were antiretroviral-treated with undetectable plasma HIV RNA levels. METHODS Participants underwent noninvasive assessment of arterial stiffness by pulse wave analysis… CONTINUE READING
