Adipogenesis, Adipocyte Function and Obesity Following HIV Infection, Antiretroviral Therapy, or Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

The prevalence of obesity is increasing in people with HIV (PWH), contributing to multiple complications associated with this condition.

Furthermore, the biology of the adipocytes might be altered in overweight or obese PWH versus overweight or obese people without HIV.
