Lipodystrophies, dyslipidaemias and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Pathology 2019 Feb 27;51(2):202-212. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Division of Nutrition and Metabolic Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Center for Human Nutrition, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA. Electronic address:

Lipodystrophies are rare, heterogeneous, genetic or acquired, disorders characterised by varying degrees of body fat loss and associated metabolic complications, including insulin resistance, dyslipidaemias, hepatic steatosis and predisposition to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). The four main types of lipodystrophy, excluding antiretroviral therapy-induced lipodystrophy in HIV-infected patients, are congenital generalised lipodystrophy (CGL), familial partial lipodystrophy (FPLD), acquired generalised lipodystrophy (AGL) and acquired partial lipodystrophy (APL). This paper reviews the literature related to the prevalence of dyslipidaemias and ASCVD in patients with lipodystrophies. Read More

Fat Mass Ratio in Brazilian HIV-infected Patients Under Antiretroviral Therapy and Its Relationship With Anthropometric Measurents.

J Clin Densitom 2018 Aug 22. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Post Graduation Program in Medical Sciences, UFF, Brazil.

Introduction: Human immunodeficiency virus-related lipodystrophy is characterized by a variety of phenotypes and metabolic changes; however, consensus has not yet been reached on its diagnostic criteria. Different cutoff values for fat mass ratio have been proposed for this specific population as an objective diagnostic criterion for lipodystrophy. This study aimed to establish sex-specific reference values for fat mass ratio and to correlate them with anthropometric measurements for the diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus-related lipodystrophy.

The Impact of Weight Gain During HIV Treatment on Risk of Pre-diabetes, Diabetes Mellitus, Cardiovascular Disease, and Mortality.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2018 27;9:705. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Department of Endocrinology, St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Since the introduction of combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) and more effective treatments for AIDS, there has been a dramatic shift from the weight loss and wasting that characterised HIV/AIDS (and still does in countries where cART is not readily available or is initiated late) to healthy weight, or even overweight and obesity at rates mirroring those seen in the general population. These trends are attributable to several factors, including the "" weight gain with reversal of the catabolic effects of HIV-infection following cART-initiation, strategies for earlier cART-initiation in the course of HIV-infection which have prevented many people living with HIV-infection from developing wasting, in addition to exposure to the modern obesogenic environment. Older cART regimens were associated with increased risk of body fat partitioning disorders (lipodystrophy) and cardiometabolic complications including atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes mellitus.

The impact of a therapeutic exercise intervention on depression and body self-image in HIV-positive women in sub-Saharan Africa.

HIV AIDS (Auckl) 2018 16;10:133-144. Epub 2018 Jul 16.

Department of Human Movement Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Fort Hare, Alice, South Africa.

Introduction: Attitudes, responses, and reactions of HIV-positive women in three sub-Saharan African regions toward a therapeutic exercise intervention, aimed to determine the presence of depression and low body self-image, were captured. This provided insight into body satisfaction and desire to exercise (Stage 1, n=60), body self-image and depression (Stage 2, n=60), and overall concerns around the often adverse side effects of antiretroviral treatment (ART). A program of therapeutic (specialty) exercise was developed for the experimental design (Stage 2), to quantify the psychological side effects of these variables. Read More

Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS)-Institut Armand-Frappier, 531 Boulevard des Prairies, Laval, H7V 1B7, QC, Canada. Electronic address:

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has dramatically reduced HIV-1-associated morbidity and mortality, and has transformed HIV-1 infection into a manageable chronic condition by suppressing viral replication. However, despite recent patient care improvements, ART still fails to cure HIV-1 infection due to the inability to counteract immune defects and metabolic disturbances that are associated with residual inflammation alongside viral persistence. Life-long drug administration also results in multiple side-effects in patients including lipodystrophy and insulin resistance. Read More

Lipoatrophy/lipohypertrophy outcomes after antiretroviral therapy switch in children in the UK/Ireland.

PLoS One 2018 4;13(4):e0194132. Epub 2018 Apr 4.

Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit at University College, London, United Kingdom.

Background: Following widespread use of stavudine, a thymidine analogue, in antiretroviral therapy (ART) over the past three decades, up to a third of children developed lipoatrophy (LA) and/or lipohypertrophy (LH). Following phasing-out of stavudine, incidence of newly-diagnosed LA and LH declined dramatically. However, the natural history of existing cases should be explored, particularly with prolonged protease inhibitor exposure. Read More

Farnesyltransferase inhibitors prevent HIV protease inhibitor (lopinavir/ritonavir)-induced lipodystrophy and metabolic syndrome in mice.

Exp Ther Med 2018 Feb 17;15(2):1314-1320. Epub 2017 Nov 17.

Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA.

Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has successfully reduced the mortality rate of patients with human immune deficiency virus (HIV) and HIV protease inhibitors (HIV PIs) are key components of HAART. Complications of HAART, particularly those associated with HIV PIs including lipodystrophy and metabolic disturbance, have emerged as an important public health issue. No specific treatment is available to prevent and/or treat HIV PI-associated lipodystrophy and metabolic syndrome. Read More

Substituting Abacavir for Stavudine in Children Who Are Virally Suppressed Without Lipodystrophy: Randomized Clinical Trial in Johannesburg, South Africa.

J Pediatric Infect Dis Soc 2018 Aug;7(3):e70-e77

Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center, Columbia University.

Objectives: Abacavir has replaced stavudine in antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimens because it has largely been phased out as a result of toxicity concerns; this loss has reduced further the already-limited drug options for children. Few data regarding virologic and metabolic outcomes among children who undergo substitution of stavudine exist. We evaluated the effects of preemptive substitution of abacavir for stavudine in children initially without lipodystrophy and virally suppressed on a stavudine-containing regimen. Read More

Low expression of IL-18 and IL-18 receptor in human skeletal muscle is associated with systemic and intramuscular lipid metabolism-Role of HIV lipodystrophy.

PLoS One 2018 17;13(1):e0186755. Epub 2018 Jan 17.

Department of Physiology, Medical University of Bialystok, Bialystok, Poland.

Introduction: Interleukin (IL)-18 is involved in regulation of lipid and glucose metabolism. Mice lacking whole-body IL-18 signalling are prone to develop weight gain and insulin resistance, a phenotype which is associated with impaired fat oxidation and ectopic skeletal muscle lipid deposition. IL-18 mRNA is expressed in human skeletal muscle but a role for IL-18 in muscle has not been identified. Read More

Visceral adipose tissue and carotid intima-media thickness in HIV-infected patients undergoing cART: a prospective cohort study.

BMC Infect Dis 2018 01 11;18(1):32. Epub 2018 Jan 11.

Endocrinology Department, Hospital de São João and University of Porto Medical School, Porto, Portugal.

Background: Combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) in HIV-infected patients has been associated with lipodystrophy, metabolic abnormalities, and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Ultrasound measures of carotid artery intima-media thickness (cIMT) have been used as a valid measure of subclinical atherosclerosis and as a tool to predict the risk of cardiovascular events. Our aim was to evaluate the progression of cIMT in HIV-infected patients subjected to cART, with and without lipodystrophy, over a one-year period. Read More

[Premature Atherosclerosis in HIV-Infected Pediatric Patients: Literature Review and Clinical Approach].

Acta Med Port 2017 Oct 31;30(10):742-749. Epub 2017 Oct 31.

Laboratório de Fisiologia. Instituto de Imagem Biomédica e Ciências da Vida (IBILI). Faculdade de Medicina. Universidade de Coimbra. Coimbra. Portugal.

Human immunodeficiency virus infected children and adolescents are a pediatric group with increased risk of premature cardiovascular disease. The virus itself, the antiretroviral therapy and the lifestyle establish a complex interplay of factors that promotes an accelerated atherosclerosis. This process is probably mediated by dyslipidaemia, dysregulation of glucose metabolism, lipodystrophy, inflammation, endothelial dysfunction and a prothrombotic state. Read More

Can Biomarkers Advance HIV Research and Care in the Antiretroviral Therapy Era?

J Infect Dis 2018 01;217(4):521-528

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine, Colchester.

Despite achieving human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) RNA suppression below levels of detection and, for most, improved CD4+ T-cell counts, those aging with HIV experience excess low-level inflammation, hypercoagulability, and immune dysfunction (chronic inflammation), compared with demographically and behaviorally similar uninfected individuals. A host of biomarkers that are linked to chronic inflammation are also associated with HIV-associated non-AIDS-defining events, including cardiovascular disease, many forms of cancer, liver disease, renal disease, neurocognitive decline, and osteoporosis. Furthermore, chronic HIV infection may interact with long-term treatment toxicity and weight gain after ART initiation. Read More
