New ARV Info Causing Anxiety in Patients – TAC

The TAC says the findings in a recent study on ARVs and the role they play in premature aging have caused anxiety in HIV/AIDS patients using ARVs

The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) says the findings in a recent study on antiretrovirals (ARVs) and the role they play in premature aging have caused anxiety in HIV/AIDS patients using ARVs.

In a press statement, the organisation argues that, “The term ‘accelerated aging’ refers to evidence that people with HIV may have higher rates of non-Aids related illnesses such as heart disease, dementia, bone fractures and certain cancers than HIV-negative people of the same age.”

TAC’s comments come after a statement by scientists from Newcastle University in the United Kingdom which cited evidence from a recent study that some ARV drugs accelerated aging in HIV/AIDS patients.
