Infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes a progressive, multifactorial impairment of the immune system associated with deleterious immune-related infectious and non-infectious adverse sequelae even after successful viral load suppression. One of the major infections associated with the altered immune response in people living with HIV is tuberculosis, and they continue to be at great risk even while on antiretrovirals. Additionally, HIV-related chronic inflammation, which cannot be completely controlled with antiretrovirals, is associated with multiple non-infectious comorbidities, including but not limited to increased cardiovascular risk, osteoporosis, gonadal dysfunction, cognitive impairment, and malignancies.
Therefore, this Special Issue will summarize the immune-related complications of people living with HIV while on antiretrovirals in the modern era.
We look forward to your contributions.
