Antiretroviral therapy does not appear to impair heart function in children

(April 23, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Miami – Antiretroviral therapy does not appear to reduce heart function in children and adolescents, according to a report published in JAMA Pediatrics. Researchers studied over 300 HIV-infected children receiving HAART, nearly 200 uninfected children who were HIV-exposed, and 70 historic cases of HIV-infected children who were mostly unexposed to HAART. Results showed that the children unexposed to HAART had impaired heart function, whereas the children on HAART and the HIV-exposed children did not suffer this level of impairment.
