CROI 2013: Research on Aging and HIV (Video)

April 28, 2013

Jeff Taylor, from the AIDS Malignancy Consortium and the AIDS Treatment Activist Coalition, sits down with Alan Landay, Ph.D., Seema Desai, Ph.D., Peter Hunt, M.D., and Tim Horn, to talk about some of the research on aging issues in the HIV population. They talk about the terminology of "premature aging" and the complications and factors associated with it. They discuss drugs being studied to help reduce inflammation and whether or not physicians should recommend aspirin for people living with HIV. They also go over the risks of smoking and the importance of anal pap smears for all ages groups in both men and women living with HIV.
