WEBINAR: HIV & the Aging Brain

International Antiviral Society-USA (IAS-USA)


Assessment of Needs

The IAS–USA offers this state-of-the-art activity as part of a nationwide continuing medical education (CME) effort for physicians on the evolving challenges of managing HIV disease. Risk for brain injury in patients with HIV infection and adherent to combination therapies persists despite suppression of plasma viremia. Among older patients, data support progressive atrophy, with abnormalities in brain integrity linked to the degree of systemic inflammation. This webinar will review current knowledge related to symptomatic cognitive impairment in patients who are virally suppressed.

This diagnostic dilemma has emerged as one of the most challenging and pertinent clinical issue of our of the cART era.
