Impact of HIV, Immune Activation, and ART on Child Neurodevelopment in Kenya

Funding: NIH/NINDS 1K01NS080637
PI: Sarah Benki-Nugent
Time Period:

Study aims are to determine the extent to which early ART started in infancy preserves long-term neurocognition in HIV-infected children, to determine prevalence and correlates of neurocognitive deficits in children diagnosed later in childhood who initiate ART and are followed thereafter, and to determine the relative influence of viral, immunologic and immune activation on neurocognitive outcomes in HIV-infected and treated children.
