BACKGROUND Circulating levels of microbial products are increased in HIV infection, and provoke endothelial dysfunction in other disease settings. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We examined data from a cross-sectional single site study at Indiana University (Indiana, N = 85) and a 24- week multicenter prospective study of antiretroviral therapy (ART) initiation (ACTG 5152s, N = 75).
