This information was specifically part of the D.A.D. score and was entered as “yes” vs “no” for Abacavir and as the duration in months for Lopinavir/Ritonavir and Indinavir.

Note that there was a strong correlation between the Framingham score and the D.A.D. score in the HIV+ group (r = .67; p<.0001). There was moderate correlations between the Framingham score and the Augmentation Index (r = .31; p<.005) and the D.A.D. score and the Augmentation Index (r = .38; p<.004).
