Asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment (ANI) is associated with progression
to symptomatic HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) in people with
HIV: results from The Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN) cohort study.....

  ......"Participants with ANI status at first visit were more likely than those who were NP-N to show progression to symptomatic HAND (Figure 1)."
