Zinc not impactful on HIV/AIDs mortality among heavy alcohol users
from Contagion Live
Zinc supplementation may have a marginal effect on mortality among people living with HIV/AIDS who are also heavy users of alcohol, according to new research. Heavy alcohol use is common in PLWHA, as is zinc deficiency. These factors, along with HIV infection itself, can lead to reductions in intestinal wall integrity and then microbial translocation and inflammation.
