Effects of infection and inflammation on lipid and lipoprotein metabolism: mechanisms and consequences to the host.
Infection and inflammation induce the acute-phase response (APR), leading to multiple alterations in lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. Plasma triglyceride levels increase from increased VLDLExpand

Lipids, lipoproteins, triglyceride clearance, and cytokines in human immunodeficiency virus infection and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
Infection causes disturbances in lipid metabolism that may be mediated by cytokines. Therefore we studied plasma lipids, lipoproteins, triglyceride (TG) metabolism, and serum cytokines in threeExpand

Human insulin receptor and its relationship to the tyrosine kinase family of oncogenes
We have deduced the entire 1,370-amino-acid sequence of the human insulin receptor precursor from a single complementary DNA clone. The precursor starts with a 27-amino-acid signal sequence, followedExpand

Association of tenofovir exposure with kidney disease risk in HIV infection
Objective:Despite widespread HAART use, HIV disease remains associated with increased risk of kidney disease. Whether tenofovir use is associated with higher risk of kidney disease is controversial.Expand

Endotoxin and cytokines induce expression of leptin, the ob gene product, in hamsters.
The expression of leptin, the ob gene product, is increased in adipose tissue in response to feeding and energy repletion, while leptin decreases food intake. Because adipose tissue gene expressionExpand

Management of Metabolic Complications Associated With Antiretroviral Therapy for HIV‐1 Infection: Recommendations of an International AIDS Society‐USA Panel
Objective: Alterations in glucose and lipid metabolism, lactic acidemia, bone disorders, and abnormal body fat distribution have been recognized recently as frequent complications associated withExpand

Infection and inflammation-induced proatherogenic changes of lipoproteins.
Epidemiologic studies suggest a link between infection/inflammation and atherosclerosis. During the acute-phase response to infection and inflammation, cytokines induce tissue and plasma events thatExpand

Leptin regulation of the immune response and the immunodeficiency of malnutrition 1
Leptin is a 16 kDa protein mainly produced by adipose tissue in proportion to adipose tissue mass. Originally thought to be a satiety factor, leptin is a pleiotropic molecule. In addition to playingExpand

Preclinical atherosclerosis due to HIV infection: carotid intima-medial thickness measurements from the FRAM study
Background:Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in HIV-infected patients. However, it is controversial whether HIV infection contributes to acceleratedExpand
