Files associated with a blog post ( that examined whether the prevalence of HIV-associated sensory neuropathy (HIV-SN), and the presence of pain in those with HIV-SN, differs between patients stratified according to whether they have/have not been exposed to neurotoxic antiretroviral drugs.

The analysis used data published in Table 1 and Table 2 of Ellis et al.

Neurol. 67: 552–558, 2010. doi: 10.1001/archneurol.2010.76. 

The files include:
1. A web archive file of blog posting
2. A markdown document of the blog
3. The data analysis script (RMarkdown)
4. Figures generated in the analysis (.svg and .png format)
5. Tables extracted from Ellis et al. (2010)
