Peripheral artery disease, one of the most common forms of cardiovascular disease, occurs more frequently in people with HIV who have CD4 cell counts below 500, regardless of whether they smoke or have other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, an analysis of the large US Veterans Aging Cohort Study has shown.

The findings were presented by Matthew Freiberg of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, at the 9th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2017) in Paris last month.
