Fractures Stratified by HIV and Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) Status

2014-08-27 03:15:35 | BioPortfolio


This US population-based study will explore the incidence of and risks for fracture among adults with and without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The objectives are to determine the incidence of fracture among persons with and without HIV infection, compare risk factors for fracture among persons with and without HIV infection, and to examine the associations of antiretroviral (ARV) treatment exposure for incidence and risk of fracture among persons with HIV infection.


This study uses data from the Integrated Health Care Information Services (IHCIS) National Managed Care Benchmarked Database, a health insurance claims database. The study has two analytic components. The first is a retrospective cohort study comparing subjects without HIV infection to subjects with HIV infection for the incidence of and risk for fracture, including the use of anyARV drugs in persons with HIV infection. The second is a nested case-control study limited to persons with HIV infectiion within the cohort. Cases are those with incident fractures occurring after the diagnosis of HIV infection, and controls those without a fracture. Cases and controls will be compared for risk factors for incident fracture including ARV drug exposure. The drug exposures will include individual nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) (as permitted by sample size) and the other ARV drug classes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Drug regimens, for patients with HIV INFECTIONS, that aggressively suppress HIV replication. The regimens usually involve administration of three or more different drugs including a protease inhibitor.

The prevention of infection or disease following exposure to a pathogen. This is most frequently addressed by administering a vaccine or anti-viral medication following exposure to a virus.

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.

Drug-related movement disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements in certain muscles. It is associated with a long-term exposure to certain neuroleptic medications (e.g., METOCLOPRAMIDE).

Exposure of the female parent, human or animal, to potentially harmful chemical, physical, or biological agents in the environment or to environmental factors that may include ionizing radiation, pathogenic organisms, or toxic chemicals that may affect offspring. It includes pre-conception maternal exposure.
