Changes in Bone Mineral Density through 96 Weeks in Antiretroviral-Naïve HIV-1 Infected Patients Receiving Abacavir/Lamivudine and Raltegravir in the SHIELD Trial
Abstract: Decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporotic fractures are areas of increasing concern among HIV-infected persons. Particular concern is the rapid decline in BMD after initiation of antiretroviral treatment (ART). This report describes DEXA-assessed changes in BMD and body fat in a study of fifteen antiretroviral-na?ve adults initiating abacavir/lamivudine and raltegravir for 96 weeks. Median percent changes from baseline at weeks 48 and 96 in BMD were 0.29% and -0.11% (spine); -1.25% and -1.75% (left hip). Median percent changes from baseline in fat from baseline were -0.82% and -3.04% (trunk); 2.12% and 2.01% (limb). In this pilot study, ABC/3TC + RAL treatment had limited impact on BMD and body fat.
