2 HIV-1 Associated Neurocognitive Disorders: HAND 1. 1.Updated Research Nosology for HIV-associated Neurocognitive Disorders, Antinori et al, Neurology 2007 Mild Neurocognitive Disorder (MND) Mild symptoms but still working and active Impairment: same as ANI HIV-Associated Dementia (HAD) Significant impairment ADLs Impairment ≥ two domains, ≥2SD below the mean for matched controls Asymptomatic Neurocognitive Impairment (ANI) Asymptomatic Impairment ≥ 2 domains, ≥ 1SD below the mean for matched controls HAND occurs in ≈ 20% of untreated HIV+ people with CD4+ cells < 200/mm 3

3 Is a diagnosis of Minor Neurocognitive Disorder important? Associated with increased risk for: – Mortality – Job loss – Driving ability decline – Poor medication adherence in more severe neurocognitive impairment – Risk of HAD (Albert et al, 1995 ; Wilkie et al 1998;Sacktor et al 1996; Mayeux et al 1993; Price et al 1999; Marcotte et al, 1999; Hinkin et al, 2002; Stern et al, 2001; Cherner et al, 2002)

9 Neuropsychological Testing low income settings Mini Mental State Exam –Insensitive to MND and HAD HIV Dementia scale –Limited sensitivity for mild disease (J Neurol Sci. 2007) but reasonable sensitivity and specificity for HAD –Takes minutes to administer –Maximum score is 12: a patient with a score ≤ 10 should be evaluated for HAD

Clinical Diagnosis of Exclusion Caudate, Globus pallidus, Putamen 1. Cysique et al Letendre et al, Cysique et al, Treatment of HAND Treat with cART >50% patients improve over at least 18 months Evidence that use of regimens with good CNS penetration is necessary in patients with HAND Theory: Regimens with high CNS penetration => lower CSF viral load => improved neurocognition Metric: CNS penetration effectiveness (CPE) score Evidence: largely observational studies Recent meta-analysis of 16 observational studies designed to determine benefit of high CPE score regimens -6 met analysis criteria -6/6 => high CPE score regimens were associated with  cognition or  CSF viral load BUT only 2/6 studies were adequately powered Results one recent RCT- no benefit high CPE score but study was underpowered Practice: Currently common practice to use high CPE scoring regimens to treat patients with HAND Tozzi et al, JAIDS Cysique et al, Arch Neurol Letendre et al, Ann Neurol Letendre et al, Arch Neurol Cysique et al, Neurology Cysique, Waters, Brew, BMC Neurol Ellis et al, CID 2014

12 What proportion of HIV+ patients who are fully virologically suppressed may have HAND? ≈30% A A ANI> MND>> HAD

13 HAND Legacy effect? Poor CNS HIV control? Ongoing CNS parenchymal infection +/or inflammation? HAND plus or HAND x Cardiovascular risk factors? Neurodegeneration? Ageing? cART toxicity? Mothobi and Brew, Curr Opin ID 2012 Why is HAND so prevalent in virologically suppressed populations?

14 HAND occurs in approximately 20% of untreated HIV+ people with < 200 CD4+ cells/mm 3 HAND is the leading cause of dementia in young adults globally HAND is treatable with HIV antiretroviral agents and the majority of patients make a good recovery HAND may occur in individuals who are taking antiretroviral therapy and requires appropriate referral and investigation Other factors including aging and cardiovascular risk factors may influence the neurocognitive health of HIV+ people over time Summary
