HIV-positive persons bear an excess burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD); however, conventional methods to assess kidney health are insensitive and non-specific for detecting early kidney injury. Urinary biomarkers can detect early kidney injury, and may help mitigate the risk of overt CKD. Cross-sectional study of HIV-positive persons in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study and the Women’s Interagency HIV Study. We measured levels of 14 biomarkers, capturing multiple dimensions of kidney injury....

AbstractBackground:Chronic kidney disease (CKD) occurs commonly among HIV-infected persons. Statins may delay CKD onset and progression via their cholesterol-lowering and pleiotropic effects.Methods:Among 850 HIV-infected men from the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study with stored urine samples (2009-201

Background:Proteinuria has been associated with bone loss and fractures in general population, but data in HIV-infected population are lacking.Setting:Prospective, multicenter cohort study of men with or at risk of HIV infection.Methods:Between 2006 and 2015, urine protein measurements and bone frac

Background:In the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, we examined whether fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23), a bone-derived phosphaturic hormone involved in bone metabolism, is associated with incident frailty. Furthermore, we examined whether this association differs by HIV serostatus and race.Method

Background:Both aging and treated human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected populations exhibit low-level chronic immune activation of unknown etiology, which correlates with morbidity and mortality. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is common in both populations, but its relation to immune activation is unknown. Methods:T cells from men who have sex with men (22 virologically suppressed HIV+, 20 HIV-) were stimulated with peptides spanning 19 CMV open reading frames, and intracellular cytokine ...
HIV infection is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular events, heart failure and atrial fibrillation; however, underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. We evaluated the association between HIV serostatus and left-ventricular mass (LVM), left-ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV
