The article offers information on HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND), the result of the virus infecting the brain during the acute stage of infection. It states that 31% to 57% of the global HIV population and more than 50% of the U.S. HIV patients have acquired HANDS. Prevalence rates may reportedly be sustained at similar levels over the course of the treatment on patients with combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) regimens.
