BACKGROUND Hypertriglyceridemia is common in patients with HIV treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 460 mg/eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 380 mg on hypertriglyceridemia in HIV-treated patients. METHODS A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter pilot study was undertaken in 48 evaluable HIV-infected patients undergoing HAART… CONTINUE READING
