Australia: Higher Heart Attack Risk for HIV Patients
July 9, 2012
The National Heart Foundation of Australia is releasing today a new resource on cardiovascular health for people with HIV. The move follows the publication of a nine-year study of nearly 3,000 U.S. patients, which found that those with HIV were more than four times as likely to die of a sudden heart attack compared to the general population.
