    Mediators of Fatty Liver Disease


    As the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and obesity rises, and as more effective HCV treatments become available, fatty liver disease will likely become a leading cause of liver disease in persons living with HIV. The purpose of this study is to determine the association of metabolic, host genetic, and viral factors with hepatic steatosis (Aim 1) and hepatic fibrosis (Aim 2) in HIV-infected adults with and without HCV-coinfection.
