Abstract

This nested case-control study assessed the putative protective effect of human herpesvirus-8 (HHV-8) against HIV-1-related dementia (dementia). The HHV-8 seropositivity of 210 male age- and HIV disease stage-matched cases and controls was compared. The overall HHV-8 seropositivity of 66% was similar among demented HIV-infected cases and nondemented HIV-infected controls.
