Neurocognitive correlates of miRNA expression in the CNS of HIV positive subjects with a history of methamphetamine abuse

Methamphetamine (meth) abuse and HIV infection are public health risks that in combination produce a “double epidemic.” MicroRNAs (miRs) were shown to be involved in CNS development, neuronal homeostasis, and brain disease. Past studies linked miR124 and let7-d with cocaine addiction. Our goal was to determine whether miRs were differentially expressed in HIV-infected individuals with a recent history of meth abuse and to identify the neurocognitive correlates.
