2 Cardiac Risk Factors What are cardiac risk factors? Increased age Sex (men are at higher risk)SmokingElevated LDL cholesterol (LDL)Low HDL cholesterol (HDL)HypertensionPresence of diabetes (or risk equivalent)How to define cardiac risk and need for interventionPersons with 2 or more risk factors are at increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD)Risk assessment tools can be used to calculate percent of CHD riskSlide #11: Cardiac Risk FactorsThe overall risk of acute coronary events depends on a combination of several risk factors that contribute to an individual’s overall global CV risk.2Wilson PW et al.

5 Higher HDL Reduces Cardiovascular Risk at All LDL Levels Framingham Heart Study – 10-Year Risk for CHD EventLDL (mg/dL)HDL (mg/dL)Relative Risk of CHD0.01.02.03.010016022085654525HDL-C is a modifier of CV risk at all levels of LDL-C.Data from the Framingham Study have demonstrated that increasing HDL-C plasma levels significantly reduce the risk of CHD at different levels of LDL-C. Even at high-risk levels of LDL-C (>200 mg/dL), elevated HDL-C levels significantly reduce the risk of CHD.For every 1 mg/dL increase in HDL-C, the CV risk is reduced by up to 3%. This protective effect of elevated HDL-C levels is especially important in therapy to modify CV risk, as interventions to increase HDL-C are often more successful than interventions to decrease LDL-C.1 mg/dL increase in HDL reduces CVD risk by 2% in men and 3% in women1Low HDL cutoffs: <40 mg/dL for men; <50 mg/dL for women251.

Masquelier153Inflammatory markers and HIV replication:increased mortality risk.SMART trialInterruption of ARV associated with a significant increase of IL- 6and D-dimersHigh levels of D-dimers and IL-6 associated with high risk of death(of any cause) (RR 26,5 & 11,8 respectively)High levels of IL-6 and D-dimers could explain part of the increased risk of CVD and death in the DC arm.STACCATO trialViral replication rebound after tratment interruption associated with:- increase of markers of endothelial activation (s-VCAM-1 = soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule) and inflammation (MCP-1 = monocyte chemotactic protein).- these changes were partially reversible 12 weeks after treatmentre-initiation.- decrease of IL-10 and adiponectinLes D-dimères sont des marqueurs de thrombogénèse. Le RR de décès en cas de D-dimères élevés observé dans l’étude SMART est très supérieur à celui jamais observé dans aucune étude du risque cardio-vasculaire. Ce RR concerne l’ensemble des décès survenus dans SMART. Les décès de cause CV sont significativement associés à une élévation des taux d’IL-6 et d’amyloïde P.Dans l’étude STACCATO, aucune corrélation n’était possible avec les marqueurs cliniques, du fait de la quasi-absence d’événements cardio-vasculaires.Le difficulté dans l’interprétation et l’extrapolation de ce type d’étude est qu’il n’est pas possible d’établir un lien causal direct entre les anomalies biologiques (marqueurs d’activation endothéliale) et les événements cliniques (risque CV, décès). En effet, l’augmentation de ces marqueurs biologiques d’activation endothéliale pourrait refléter un autre phénomène intercurrent et ne pas être strictement en rapport avec une dysfonction endothéliale.Kuller L, CROI 2008, Abs. 139 ; Calmy A CROI 2008, Abs. 14034

42 Lipid-Lowering Therapy Overview FibratesLDL , TG , HDL Side effects: dyspepsia,gallstones, myopathyStatinsLDL , TG , HDLSide effects: myopathy, liver enzymesEzetimibeLDL , TG , HDL Side effects: liver enzymes,diarrheaOmega-3 Fatty AcidsLDL , TG , HDL Side effects: GI, tasteNicotinic AcidLDL , TG , HDL Side effects: flushing, hyperglycemia, hyperuricemia, upper GI distress, hepatotoxicityBile Acid SequestrantsLDL , TG , HDL Side effects: GI distress/ constipation, absorption of other drugsSeveral pharmacologic classes of lipid lowering agents (LLAs) are available, with varying effects on LDL, TG, and HDL. Side effects also vary among the classes.Niacin and bile acid sequestrants were among the first agents to become available for lowering serum lipids. However, these agents are not often used in HIV infected patients primarily due to side effects and dosing frequency.The cornerstones of modern lipid management are fibric acids and HMG CoA reductase inhibitors or statins.More recently adjunctive therapies including ezetimibe and omega 3 fatty acids derived from fish oils have been added to the statins to enhance their lipid lowering properties.42
43 Utility of Lipid-lowering Agents for Dyslipidemia in HIV Infection? There is a role for fibrates, statins and niacinBUTTarget lipid levels infrequently achieved in clinical trialsInteractions between statins and PIs can complicate useIncreased costIncreased pill burdenPotential for glucose intolerance with niacin
44 Lipids ManagementWhat are the preferred management approaches for patients with HAART-associated hyperlipidemia?Specifically, what factors should be considered in deciding whether to switch antiretroviral agents, use lipid-lowering therapy, or both?

There was no significant difference between the two populations in terms of the prevalence of diabetes (measured by elevated glucose >12.6 mg/dL).The estimated attributable risk due to smoking was 65% in HIV+ men and 29% in HIV+ women. The predicted risk of coronary heart disease was greater in HIV+ men (RR=1.2) and women (RR=1.6), p<0.001.The results suggest that smoking makes a significant contribution to the risk of CHD in HIV+ patients, particularly men, and that this is independent of other risk factors.N=223 HIV+ men and women on PI-based regimens vs 527 HIV– male subjects:HIV+ patients have lower HDL and higher TGPredicted risk of CHD > in HIV+ men (RR=1.2) and women (RR = 1.6), P<0.000147Savès M et al.

48 Summary CVD risk is increasing in the aging HIV population CVD risk is associated with HAART and lipid elevationPrevalence of dyslipidemia is substantial especially with some PI-based regimensConsider smoking, diet and exercise interventions standardWatch for insulin resistance and the metabolic syndromeUse lipid lowering therapies along NCEP guidelinesSwitching ART to less dyslipidemic agents may avoid the need for additional interventionsNew agents appear to have few short term impact on lipid profile
