To explore whether airway obstruction is associated with HIV in a cohort of HIV-infected and uninfected smokers.


People living with HIV (PLWHIV) participated in the ANRS EP48 HIV CHEST study, an early lung cancer diagnosis study with low-dose chest tomography. HIV-uninfected study participants were from the CONSTANCES cohort. Inclusion criteria were an age greater than 40 years, a smoking history of at least 20 pack-years, and for PLWHIV, a CD4 T-lymphocyte nadir less than 350/µl and last CD4 cell count more than 100 cells/µl. Two randomly selected HIV-uninfected study participants were matched by age and sex with one PLWHIV. Prebronchodilatator forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1) to forced vital capacity (FVC) ratio was the primary outcome, and association of FEV1/FVC ratio less than 0.70 and FEV1 less than 80% of the theoretical value, as a proxy of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the secondary outcome.


In total, 351 PLWHIV and 702 HIV-uninfected study participants were included. Median age was 50 years, and 17% of study participants were women. Plasma HIV RNA was less than 50 copies/ml in 89% of PLWHIV, with a median CD4 cell count of 573 cells/µl. HIV (ß -2.19), age (per 10 years increase; ß -2.81), tobacco use (per 5 pack-years increase; ß -0.34), and hepatitis C virus serology (ß-2.50) were negatively associated with FEV1/FVC. HIV [odds ratio (OR: 1.72)], age (per 10 years increase; OR 1.77), and tobacco use (per 5 pack-years increase; OR 1.11) were significantly associated with the secondary outcome.


Our study found a significant association of airway obstruction with HIV status in smokers aged more than 40 years with previous immunodeficiency.
