HIV and Liver : NIDDK

HIV and Liver

 The Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition encourages research into the characterization of intestinal injury, mechanisms of maldigestion, and intestinal mucosal functions, as well as hepatic and biliary dysfunction in patients with AIDS or in appropriate animal models. In addition, studies are supported on the mechanisms of nutrient malabsorption, deficiencies of various micronutrients, nutritional management of the wasting syndrome, and other aspects of malnutrition related to AIDS.
