Optimal Management of HIV Infected Adults at Risk for Kidney Disease in Nigeria (U01DK112271-01)
In this study, we plan to determine the optimal means to manage and thereby reduce the risk of kidney and potentially other end organ complications among genetically at-risk northern Nigerian HIV-infected adults. Based on data from the diabetic literature using medications that block the renin angiotensin aldosterone system (RAAS), we plan to evaluate whether or not RAAS inhibition (using one or two different medications that block RAAS) in HIV-infected adults produces similarly promising results.
