Vitamin A deficiency and T-cell subpopulations in HIV-infected adults

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although vitamin A deficiency has been linked with higher mortality and increased mother-to-child transmission of HIV, specific immune abnormalities in HIV-infected adults with vitamin A deficiency are unknown. We measured plasma vitamin A levels and selected T-cell subpopulations in 104 adults with HIV infection. 15.4% had plasma vitamin A levels consistent with vitamin A deficiency (
