The effect of TNF polymorphisms on the time-to-onset of lipodystrophy was investigated in 191 Caucasian participants in the western Australian HIV cohort. Carriage of the TNF-α-238G/A polymorphism was found in 13.1% of the cohort, and was associated with an earlier onset of lipodystrophy. The presence of TNF-α-238G/A was associated with lipodystrophy progression in Cox proportional hazards regression analyses, without influencing the relative risk and significance of other predictive host and treatment-related variables.
