Clin Infect Dis. 2020 Mar 02;: Authors: Collins LF, Sheth AN, Mehta CC, Naggie S, Golub ET, Anastos K, French AL, Kassaye S, Taylor T, Fischl MA, Adimora AA, Kempf MC, Palella FJ, Tien PC, Ofotokun I Abstract INTRODUCTION: The prevalence and burden of age-related non-AIDS comorbidities (NACM) is poorly characterized among women living with HIV (WLWH). METHODS: Virologically-suppressed WLWH and HIV-seronegative participants followed in the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) through ≥2009 (when>80% WLWH used antiretroviral therapy) were included, with outcomes measured through 3/31/2018. Covariates, NACM number and prevalence were summarized at most recent WIHS visit. We used linear regression models to determine NACM burden by HIV serostatus and age. RESULTS: Among 3232 women (2309 WLWH, 923 HIV-seronegative) with median observation of 15.3 years, median age and body mass index (BMI) were 50 years and 30 kg/m2 respectively, 65% were black, 70% ever used cigarettes. WLWH had a higher mean NACM number than HIV-seronegative women (3.6 vs. 3.0, p
