A study involving 521 HIV-positive patients ages 12 and older who were infected perinatally found that 84% were on antiretroviral treatment in 2010, up from 67.4% in 2002. This increase in antiretroviral use was associated with declines in both viremia and advanced immunosuppression rates, researchers said. The study in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society found that older patients in the study group as well as blacks and Hispanics were at higher risk of viremia.
