Current concepts of metabolic abnormalities in HIV patients: focus on lipodystrophy

, : Current concepts of metabolic abnormalities in HIV patients: focus on lipodystrophy. Aids Reader 13(12 Suppl): S5-13

HIV infection is associated with a number of metabolic abnormalities, including lipodystrophy, a difficult-to-define disorder whose characteristics include hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance, and fat redistribution. Current data suggest that lipodystrophy is caused by multiple factors. Dual-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor therapy combined with protease inhibitor therapy has been shown to increase the risk of metabolic abnormalities, but susceptibility independent of drug effects has also been shown. While many of the treatments for the broad range of signs and symptoms of lipodystrophy bring about improvements in patient status, none have been demonstrated to bring about a return to baseline levels.

The ablative role of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in neuroblastoma (NB) is still controversial due to the possible CO₂ pneumoperitoneum side-effects on tumor aggressiveness. It is known that CO₂ produces hypoxic condition with changes in t...
