Hiv's risk to heart's of aging

With half of the HIV population being over 50, myself included, found this new trial very much important.

loved this paragraph in the report

"In short, Dieffenbach says, the study is seeking otherwise healthy people who happen to have HIV, something he says was unthinkable when he began to study the disease in the early 1990's. Now, he says, he knows of HIV-positive patients in their 70's and 80's who are still living healthy lives."
