The Stanford HIV Aging Cohort (SHAC)
A research study to evaluate the effect of aging and HIV on neurocognitive dysfunction (declining ability to process information), physical frailty and heart disease. HIV-infected participants whose virus is controlled on antiretroviral medications will be studied to determine the rates and risk factors of developing these conditions.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
Ages Eligible For Study:
- Subjects must have an HIV RNA level below the limit of quantification (e.g., <75 copies, <50 copies, or <48 copies/mL, depending on the assay used) for at least 6 months excluding "blips" (e.g., a single measurement between 48-200 copies/mL preceded and followed by measurements below the limit of quantification) while on antiretroviral therapy.
