Although several studies have shown that asymptomatic human immunodeficiency virus infection elicits an increase in whole body protein turnover, it is not known whether this increased protein turnover includes changes in the kinetics of acute-phase proteins (APPs). To answer this question, we measured 1) the plasma concentrations of four positive (C-reactive protein, alpha1-antitrypsin, haptoglobin, and fibrinogen) and four negative APPs [albumin, high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-apolipoprotein… CONTINUE READING
