Abstract:"Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has substantially improved the immune function in many HIV-infected individuals. However, the occurrence of milder forms of neurocognitive dysfunction persists, possibly caused by the poor penetration of some antiretroviral agents into the central nervous system. This study reports on the changes in the incidence of mild neurocognitive impairment since the introduction of HAART in individuals initially found to be neurocognitively normal.
