Therefore, our hypothesis is that the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with HIV infection can be influenced by variations in genes implicated in both processes. METHODS The progression of atherosclerosis over a 2-year follow-up period was measured as the combined carotid and femoral intima media thickness (IMT) in 141 patients with HIV infection.
