Abstract:Memory impairment occurs in both HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), the precursor to Alzheimer's disease (AD). Methods are needed to distinguish aMCI-associated from HAND-associated impairment in people with HIV (PWH). We developed a neuropsychological method of identifying aMCI in PWH and tested this method by relating AD neuropathology (β-amyloid, phospho-Tau) to aMCI versus HAND classification.
