Infectious Disease Advisor: Achieving Optimal Neurodevelopmental Outcomes in HIV-Infected Infants

By Linda Peckel

Infants living with HIV whose viral loads are suppressed by antiretroviral therapy (ART) are more likely to partially recover developmental milestones but with persistent deficits, compared to uninfected infants, according to an African study published in BMC Pediatrics

Sarah Benki-Nugent, Assistant Professor of Global Health at UW, led the study through the UW Kenya Research and Training Center with collaborators at UW and University of Minnesota.
