Sleep/rest fatigue 7.857 (−3.1 to 18.8) 7.906 (−2.6 to 18.4) 2.203 (−6.0 to 10.4) 3.091 (−4.9 to 11.0)
Cognitive fatigue −7.161 (−18.3 to 4.0) − 7.109 (− 18.1 to 3.9) − 6.366 (− 16.0 to 3.3) −5.948 (− 15.6 to 3.7)
  1. *B represents mean difference between PHIV+ and the comparison group. bAdjusted for age and sex. Lower scores indicate more severely fatigued; a negative score therefore means more fatigue in PHIV+. Significant differences in bold.
