Sixty HIV participants will be enrolled and stratified by PBMC HIV DNA levels, either high (greater than or equal to 5000 copies/106 cells) or low (less than 5000 copies/106 cells). Individuals will be enrolled into each group until filled. Screening PBMC HIV DNA levels will be performed at SEARCH in real-time with less than one-week turn around time. All individuals will intend to initiate ARV due to meeting MOPH guidelines for such. The protocol team will work with the primary care physician to facilitate initiation of standard ARV care; however, initiation of ARV is not a requirement of the study and ARV will not be provided by the study.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To determine the long-term relationship between cognition and HIV DNA in circulating PBMCs and monocytes (CD14+ PBMCs) among patients initiating HAART for the first time [ Time Frame: After March 30, 2016 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
| Study Start Date:
| Study Completion Date:
| Primary Completion Date:
||January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
1 HIV DNA will be stratified by high
2 HIV DNA will be stratified by low
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||20 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
HIV-infected individuals meeting MOPH criteria to initiate HAART and planning to initiate HAART within a month of screening. Consequently, all participants will have plasma CD4 counts at less than 250 cells.
