Abstract

Our studies conducted on asymptomatic gay men with HIV infection indicate that cognitive behavioral stress management (CBSM) can buffer distress and some measures of immune function associated with notification of a positive HIV diagnosis. More recent studies conducted on symptomatic pre-AIDS men with HIV infection have indicated that CBSM can: a) ameliorate dysphoria, anxiety, and stress related symptoms; b) decrease cortisol and norepinephrine while increasing testosterone level; c) decrease antibody titers of some herpes viruses as well as maintain the number of T cytotoxic/suppressor (CD8) and naive T-helper/inducer (CD4) lymphocytes. Preliminary data from our most recent studies indicate that CBSM can decrease viral load in men receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy.
