The EU-funded COBRA project (COmorBidity in Relation to AIDS) begun in 2013 with the aim of assessing the prevalence of age-associated non-communicable comorbidities in adults living with HIV. All the participants are stable on highly-active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) and are being assessed longitudinally; at baseline and after a two year interval. Assessment includes MRI, clinical and neurocognitive test batteries and is being carried out across two sites, at Imperial College London and the Academic Medical Center Amsterdam.
