Effect of chronic substance abuse on the neuropsychological performance of intravenous drug users with a high prevalence of HIV-1 seropositivity.
Limited data are available on cognitive performance in populations of intravenous drug users during the early, asymptomatic stages of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection.
Between 1988 and 1990, 151 participants from the AIDS Link to Intravenous Experience (ALIVE) Study in Baltimore, Maryland, were evaluated neuropsychologically on a semiannual basis.
This analysis focused on whether history of substance abuse influenced neuropsychological test performance.
At baseline, 102 participants were HIV-1-seropositives who were free of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and 49 participants were seronegative.
