Abstract:Anemia in persons living with HIV (PLWH) may occur from multiple causes and has been identified as a predictor of morbidity and mortality. Prior studies identified associations between anemia and worse neurocognitive (NC) performance in PLWH, but most studies have been cross-sectional and were not limited to those taking antiretroviral therapy (ART). This study compared erythrocyte and anemia biomarkers to NC performance over time in a large cohort of PLWH taking ART.
