Common infections may increase cardiovascular risk in HIV patients

L-R: Dr James McMahon, Dr Janine Trevillyan, Prof Jenny Hoy
and Dr Norm Roth (GP at Prahran Market Clinic) conferring. Jenny
and Janine are co-authors together with Victoria Berquist, a former
CCS BMedSc(Hons) student, on the paper on CV risk in HIV patients
by Anne Crawford

When human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) erupted more than 30 years ago, the lifespan of people with fully-blown AIDS was short. Management of the disease often meant palliative care.

Now, with effective drugs, the longevity of a person living with AIDS in Australia is approaching that of the general population. But there’s still a gap of some eight to 10 years lost over a lifetime, mostly due to heart attack and cancers. Monash University researchers at the Alfred Hospital are investigating the factors behind increased cardiovascular risk in HIV-positive individuals and what can be done to about them.
