Vitamin Research in HIV- anything exciting now?
Nov 12, 2008

I have been reading your emails about supplements and HIV and you seem to be concerned that the research has slowed down. My question is: what is being studied right now, if any?

Thanks

Tony

Dear Tony

I am glad you asked this question. I have done a search on clinical trials.gov and have actually found some really interesting studies that are currently enrolling:

Micronutrient Supplemented Probiotic Yogurt for HIV/AIDS and Other Immunodeficiencies

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00517803?term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=441

Effects of Mixed Exercise Regime and L-Carnitine Supplementation in HIV Patients

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00572429?term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=54

Chromium Picolinate to treat HIV related diabetes

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00109746? term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=340

A Trial of Vitamins and HAART in HIV Disease Progression

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00383669?term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=124

The Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency and Effects of Vitamin D Supplementation

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00306410?term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=410

Acupuncture for Nausea in HIV

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00624793?term=HIV&recr=Open&rank=390

So, I guess I was not 100% correct when I said there is little research on nutritional and complementary therapies in HIV

I encourage everyone to call these sites and support these studies
