Description

Description (from applicant's abstract): This proposal seeks to investigate the
process of menopause among HIV-infected women. The specific aims are to
describe: 1) the impact of HIV infection and drug use on menopausal symptoms
and biologic markers; 2) attitudes and knowledge about menopause among HIV
infected and drug using women, 3) the impact of H IV infection and drug use on
bone mineral density before and after menopause: and 4) impact of HIV infection
and antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and
development of post-menopausal cardiovascular disease. The proposal is for a
five-year prospective study of 750 middle-aged women in the Bronx, half of whom
are HIV infected, and half at risk for HIV infection. A significant number of
the participants will come from existing cohorts HIV Epidemiologic Research
Study (HERS) which is ending and HIV Epidemiologic Research on Outcomes Study
(HEROS) which will continue until 2002. Women will be recruited from the
community to complete the newly proposed cohort.
