Abstract

Menopause may affect antiretroviral treatment (ART) response. Immunologic and virologic responses to ART were compared in 220 premenopausal and 47 postmenopausal women enrolled in 2 studies involving ART-naive persons. Changes in CD4 counts or human immunodeficiency virus type 1 RNA levels were similar at 24, 48, and 96 weeks after treatment initiation. ART-naive women should respond to ART regardless of menopausal status.
