Abstract

As longevity increases in HIV-infected individuals, late effects such as cardiovascular disease and, more specifically, symptomatic heart failure are emerging as leading health issues. In the present review, we discuss possible cytokine and gene-mediated effects on HIV-associated cardiovascular illness that may play a role in diagnosis, management, and therapy of HIV-associated heart failure.
