Neurocognitive Impairment and Associated Genetic Aspects in HIV Infection

Part of the Current Topics in Behavioral Neurosciences book series


HIV enters the central nervous system (CNS) early after infection. HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) remain a serious complication of HIV infection despite available antiretroviral therapy (ART). Neurocognitive deficits observed in HAND are heterogeneous, suggesting a variability in individuals’ susceptibility or resiliency to the detrimental CNS effects of HIV infection. This chapter reviews primary host genomic changes (immune-related genes, genes implicated in cognitive changes in primary neurodegenerative diseases), epigenetic mechanisms, and genetic interactions with ART implicated in HIV progression or HAND/neurocognitive complications of HIV. Limitations of the current findings include diversity of the HAND phenotype and limited replication of findings across cohorts. Strategies to improve the precision of future (epi)genetic studies of neurocognitive consequences of HIV infection are offered.
