Hi,
As mentioned by Dr Brown, the lead author in the study mentioned, this condition appears to be a chronic disease, not having an infectious nature associated with HIV-AIDS. It is also only seen in adults with Asian descent. This conditions also  have not yet  been studied for a long enough period of time to know the long-term prognosis. And for us to understand the disease or  condition better, additional studies may need to be done in the future.  Take care and best regards.
