Hawaii Aging with HIV Cardiovascular Study (HAHCS) enrolled HIV-infected volunteer adults age 40 and over, recruited from the state of Hawaii. A natural history longitudinal study, HAHCS followed a cohort of 150 HIV positive subjects for five years. The study is based on observations that, while HIV-infected individuals now live longer because of the availability of highly active antiretroviral therapy, these individuals may be at increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality. Rates of well-accepted traditional CV risk factors such as diabetes/hyperglycemia, body morphology changes and smoking are high in the HIV population. Furthermore, there is growing concern that HIV per se may also contribute to CV risk. HAHCS evaluated the cross-sectional and longitudinal impact of oxidative stress and inflammation on the development of subclinical atherosclerosis. Researchers assessed subclinical atherosclerosis functionally by brachial artery flow mediated vasodilatation (FMD) and structurally by intima-media thickness (IMT) as well as coronary artery calcium score obtained by dual source CT. Data include behavioral health indicators, medical history information, and medical test results. Demographic data include age, sex, and race
