Cognitive problems in children born with HIV
When HIV first emerged in the 1980s, infecton before, during or after birth frequently led to severe developmental delay, brain injury or death before the age of two years. Although the development and survival rates for HIV-infected children has drastically improved since then, they still have poorer cognitive abilities than uninfected children. Charlotte Blokhuis studies the potential mechanisms that could underlie cognitive impairment and cerebral injury in perinatally HIV-infected children who are adequately treated with cART.
