ABSTRACT
HIV-infected patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) have increased prevalence of a number of chronic metabolic disorders of multifactorial but unclear etiology. These include disorders of lipid metabolism with or without lipodystrophy, insulin resistance, and an increased prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus, and cardiometabolic syndrome. While much attention has been focused on the lipid and cardiovascular disorders, few investigations have attempted to characterize the prevalence, incidence, etiology, mechanisms, and management of glycemic disorders in HIV patients. In this review, we have focused specifically on a comprehensive assessment of dysglycemia in the context of HIV infection and HAART.

    The combination rilpivirine (RPV)/emtricitabine (FTC)/tenofovir (TDF) is a oncedaily, single-tablet regimen (STR) containing one nonnucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor associated with two nucleos(t)ide reverse transcriptase inhibitors. It is approved by regulatory agencies (eg, US Food...

    HIV infection can affect cardiac autonomic function. We aimed to compare heart rate variability in 29 HIV-infected patients using highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), 28 naïve-treatment HIV patients, and diabetics with controls. There was no difference in time index parameters among...

    Background. It has been proposed that subtype-related human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) variability may influence virologic and immunologic responses to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Studies to date, however, have described treatment outcomes predominantly in persons...
