Study Defines Rx Window for HIV+ Children Infected at Birth

HIV-positive children older than 1 year who were treated after showing moderate HIV-related symptoms did not experience greater cognitive or behavior problems compared to peers treated when signs of their infection were still mild, according to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health. But both groups of HIV-positive children lagged behind HIV-negative children in these areas, suggesting that the first year of life may present a critical treatment window for minimizing impairments in brain development due to HIV.  For more information about this study, go to: http://www.nimh.nih.gov/science-news/2012/nih-funded-study-defines-treatment-window-for-hiv-positive-children-infected-at-birth.shtml?utm_source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govdelivery
