Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of nonHIV-related death in people with HIV infection. Risk in HIV-infected persons appears to reflect contributions of non-HIV-related cardiovascular risk factors, the chronic inflammatory response in HIV infection, as well as metabolic adverse effects of antiretroviral therapy like insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, abnormal fat distribution, and hypertension.
