The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)Kidney Failure, Chronic: The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002).

HIV-associated nephropathy is a late, not early, manifestation of HIV-1 infection. (1/170)

BACKGROUND: Human immunodeficiency virus-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) can be the initial presentation of HIV-1 infection. As a result, many have assumed that HIVAN can occur at any point in the infection. This issue has important implications for appropriate therapy and, perhaps, for pathogenesis. Since the development of new case definitions for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and better tools to assess infection, the relationship of HIVAN to the time of AIDS infection has not been addressed. In this study, we reassessed the stage of infection at the time of HIVAN diagnosis in 10 patients, and we reviewed all previously published cases applying the new case definitions to assess stage of infection. METHODS: HIVAN was confirmed by kidney biopsy in HIV seropositive patients with azotemia and/or proteinuria. CD4+ cell count and plasma HIV-1 RNA copy number were measured. We also reviewed all published cases of HIVAN to determine if AIDS-defining conditions, by current Centers for Disease Control definitions, were present in patients with biopsy-proven HIVAN. RESULTS: Twenty HIV-1 seropositive patients with proteinuria and an elevated creatinine concentration were biopsied. HIVAN was the single most common cause of renal disease. CD4+ cell count was below 200/mm3 in all patients with HIVAN, fulfilling Centers for Disease Control criteria for an AIDS-defining condition. HIV-1 plasma RNA was detectable in all patients with HIVAN. In reviewing previous reports, an AIDS-defining condition was present in virtually all patients with HIVAN. CONCLUSION: HIVAN develops late, not early, in the course of HIV-1 infection following the development of AIDS. This likely accounts for the poor prognosis noted in previous publications and has implications for pathogenesis. In addition, given the detectable viral RNA levels, highly active antiretroviral therapy is indicated in HIVAN. Highly active antiretroviral therapy may improve survival as well as alter the natural history of HIVAN.  (+info)

Up-regulation of Duffy antigen receptor expression in children with renal disease. (2/170)

BACKGROUND: The Duffy antigen chemokine receptor (DARC) is a promiscuous chemokine receptor that binds chemokines from the C-X-C and C-C families. DARC was initially described on red blood cells, but subsequent studies have demonstrated DARC protein expression on renal endothelial and epithelial cells, even in Duffy-negative individuals whose red cells lack DARC. Because approximately 68% of African Americans lack the Duffy/DARC on their red cells, we carried out experiments to identify the specific renal cells expressing DARC protein and mRNA in African American children and to define whether DARC expression was altered in renal inflammatory processes. METHODS: Immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization studies were done in 28 renal sections from children with each of the following diagnoses: HIV nephropathy (HIVAN), HIV-associated hemolytic uremic syndrome (HIV-HUS), HIV infection without renal disease, HIV-negative children without renal disease, and Argentinean children with classic HUS. RESULTS: The predominant localization of DARC mRNA and protein was found in endothelial cells underlying postcapillary renal venules in all patients studied. However, DARC mRNA and protein were significantly up-regulated in peritubular and glomerular capillaries, collecting duct epithelial cells, and interstitial inflammatory cells in children with HIVAN, HIV-HUS, and classic HUS. CONCLUSION: These findings support the notion that the renal DARC is linked to the inflammatory cascade and that African American children may be at risk of accumulating chemokines in renal tissues.  (+info)

Hepatitis C virus-associated glomerular disease in patients with human immunodeficiency virus coinfection. (3/170)

Chronic infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been linked to the development of glomerular disease. HCV infection is highly prevalent among intravenous drug users, a population that is also at risk for HIV coinfection. This study reports the clinical-pathologic features and outcome of HCV-associated glomerular disease (HCV-GD) in 14 patients with HIV coinfection. All were intravenous drug users and all but one were African-Americans. Renal presentations included renal insufficiency, microscopic hematuria with active urine sediment, hypertension, and nephrotic syndrome or nephrotic-range proteinuria without hypercholesterolemia. Hypocomplementemia and cryoglobulinemia were present in 46 and 33% of patients, respectively. The predominant renal biopsy findings were membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type 1 or type 3 (Burkholder subtype) in 79% of patients and membranous glomerulopathy with atypical features in 21% (including overlap with collapsing glomerulopathy in one patient). The clinical course was characterized by rapid progression to renal failure requiring dialysis. The overall morbidity and mortality were high with median time of 5.8 mo to dialysis or death. Although most patients died in renal failure, cause of death was primarily attributable to long-term immunosuppression and advanced AIDS. Patients with AIDS had shorter survival than those without (median survival time of 6.1 mo versus 45.9 mo, log-rank test P = 0.02). Only two patients were alive with stable renal function at follow-up of 28.5 mo. In patients with HCV-GD, coinfection with HIV leads to an aggressive form of renal disease that can be easily confused with HIV-associated nephropathy. Although hypocomplementemia, cryoglobulinemia, and more prominent hypertension and microscopic hematuria may provide clues to the presence of HCV-GD, renal biopsy is essential to differentiate HCV-GD from HIV-associated nephropathy.  (+info)

Renal lesions in AIDS: a biopsy and autopsy study. (4/170)

We studied renal lesions at biopsy (20 cases) and at autopsy (21 cases) among patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Nephrotic syndrome with concomitant renal insufficiency was most common indication for biopsy. 85 percent of biopsies showed features of HIV associated nephropathy (HIVAN) which include: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), glomerular collapse and mesangial hyperplasia. These glomerular changes were always accompanied by tubular microcysts and ultrastructurally, tubuloreticular inclusions (TRI) within the glomerular endothelium were often noted. Changes of HIVAN were also seen in two cases who were HIV negative at the time of biopsy but were positive on repeat testing. Minimal change disease, mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis and diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis were other biopsy lesions. Autopsy findings were HIVAN (33 percent), tubular necrosis and opportunistic infections. We conclude that HIVAN is a distinct clinicopathologic entity that may sometimes be the first manifestation of the underlying disease state.  (+info)

Renal lesions associated with AIDS--an autopsy study. (5/170)

Kidneys from 55 cases (20 with HIV infection and 35 with AIDS) were studied by routine Haematoxylin and Eosin stains and special stains (PAS, PASM GMS, ZN, Mucicarmine and Congo red) to evaluate, glomerular, interstitial and vascular pathology. Twenty-four of the 35 (68.6%) cases of AIDS showed infective aetiology which included 17 cases (48.5%) of tuberculosis, 5 cases (14.4%) of fungal infection (3 cryptococcus neoformans and 2 candida species) and 2 cases (5.7%) of CMV infection. Other lesions noted were amyloidosis and tubular calcinosis. HIV associated nephropathy (HIVAN) was not detected in any of the cases. Intravenous drug abuse was not a risk factor in our cases which probably explains the absence of HIV associated nephropathy in the present study.  (+info)

Chemokine receptor CCR5 and CXCR4 expression in HIV-associated kidney disease. (6/170)

The chemokine receptors CCR5 and CXCR4 have been identified as essential coreceptors for entry of HIV-1 strains into susceptible cells. Direct infection of renal parenchymal cells has been implicated in the pathogenesis of HIV-associated renal disease, although data are conflicting. The localization of CCR5 and CXCR4 in kidneys with HIV-associated renal disease is unknown. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded renal biopsies from patients with HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) (n = 13), HIV-associated immune complex glomerulonephritis (n = 3), HIV-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (n = 1), and HIV-negative patients with collapsing glomerulopathy (n = 8) were analyzed in this study. Cellular sites of expression of CCR5 and CXCR4 were identified by immunohistochemistry and by in situ hybridization. The presence of HIV-1 was detected by immunohistochemistry and by in situ hybridization. Expression of both chemokine receptors CCR5 and CXCR4 was undetectable in intrinsic glomerular, tubular, and renovascular cells in all analyzed cases. In the presence of tubulointerstitial inflammation, CCR5 and CXCR4 expression was localized to infiltrating mononuclear leukocytes. HIV-1 protein was undetectable by immunohistochemistry in all cases of HIV-associated renal disease. HIV-1 RNA was identified in one case of HIVAN but was restricted to infiltrating leukocytes. HIV-1 RNA was not detected in intrinsic renal cells in all analyzed cases. Identifying the cellular expression of HIV-coreceptors CCR5 and CXCR4 may help to clarify which tissues are permissive for direct HIV infection. These data do not support a role of productive HIV-1 infection of renal parenchymal cells in the pathogenesis of HIV-associated renal disease.  (+info)

Diuretic MAG3 scintirenography in children with HIV nephropathy: diffuse parenchymal dysfunction. (7/170)

HIV nephropathy (HIVN) is prevalent in 15%-56% of HIV-infected children and induces mild to severe progressive nephropathy. METHODS: A total of 33 renal diuretic scintirenographic studies with 99mTc-mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) were reviewed and analyzed from 23 HIV pediatric patients, 21 of whom had HIVN with varying degrees of renal impairment. Results were compared with 10 studies of control patients of matching ages. Visual interpretation of images and renograms as well as semiquantitative analyses were performed. Variables compared were size of kidneys, time of peak and one-half peak activities, residual (or retained) cortical activity at 20 min, ratio of cortical activity at 2.5-20 min, and ratio of kidney activity to kidney plus background activity at 2 min. The results of MAG3 renal studies were also compared with laboratory data pertaining to creatinine clearance in all patients and with sonography in 17 patients. RESULTS: In most patients with HIVN (18/21), the kidneys were larger than normal, with a diffuse parenchymal dysfunction (decreased uptake, slow processing, and increased retention of activity) and flat renograms, findings similar to those observed in other diffuse parenchymal diseases. In all patients with HIVN, semiquantitative analysis (paired t test) showed statistically significant differences from control patients for all variables. On ANOVA, a statistically significant correlation was found between most scintigraphic parameters and the severity of renal impairment. Of the 17 concurrent sonographic studies in HIVN patients, 7 showed no abnormalities, whereas the results of scintigraphy were abnormal. CONCLUSION: Diuretic MAG3 scintirenography shows nonspecific diffuse parenchymal dysfunction in pediatric patients with HIVN. Such dysfunction may provide corroborative evidence of HIVN and should be recognized when the test is performed for standard indications. Further work is necessary to prove that the test has indeed the high sensitivity and good correlation with the seventy of HIVN suggested in this population; the test may be useful to follow up the progression of disease and the effect of treatment.  (+info)

Podocyte cell cycle regulation and proliferation in collapsing glomerulopathies. (8/170)

BACKGROUND: Mature podocytes are growth-arrested because of the expression of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors. Under pathological conditions, podocytes may undergo mitosis, but not cell division. Exceptions to this rule are collapsing glomerulopathies (CGs), including HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) and idiopathic CG, where podocytes undergo a dysregulation of their differentiated phenotype and proliferate. METHODS: To shed light on the mechanism underlying podocyte proliferation in CG, we analyzed the expression of the proliferation marker Ki-67, cyclins (A, D1), cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (p27, p57), and podocyte differentiation marker synaptopodin in eight cases of HIVAN and two cases of idiopathic CG. Normal fetal and adult kidneys served as controls. RESULTS: Both HIVAN and idiopathic CG showed a marked reduction in the expression of p27, p57, and cyclin D1 (absent in 69, 62, and 80% of all glomeruli, respectively). Cyclin A and Ki-67 were expressed in 11 and 29% of all glomeruli. Moreover, there was partial loss of synaptopodin and cyclin D1 expression in nonaffected glomeruli. CONCLUSIONS: The loss of p27 and p57 leading to expression of cyclin A may account for the activation of podocyte proliferation in CG. Furthermore, the loss of cyclin D1 from histologically normal glomeruli suggests a possible role of cyclin D1 in mediating the dysregulation of the podocyte cell cycle in CG. These novel findings offer insight into the molecular regulation of mature podocyte differentiation. Podocyte proliferation in CG provides evidence in support of a previously underestimated plasticity of mature podocytes.  (+info)

ART for the treatment of HIV may slow the progression of HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) to end-stage renal disease (ESRD); nevertheless, it is predicted that many HIV infected patients on ART will reach ESRD by the next decade. Medications that affect the renin-angiotensin system, such as the ARB valsartan, may be useful in treating HIVAN. In a small study of HIV infected patients with HIVAN treated with the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) fosinopril, kidney function was stable in patients who took the ACEI, but function decreased in patients who did not. These data are promising, and suggest that an ARB like valsartan may also slow the progression of HIVAN and improve patients prognosis. This study will compare valsartan and ART to ART alone in slowing kidney disease progression in people with HIV.. This study will last 96 weeks. All participants will continue taking their current ART regimen during the study and will be randomly assigned to one of two arms: Arm 1 will ...

Human immunodeficiency virus-related renal diseases occur in up to 10% of patients infected with HIV. The majority of such patients are black and the commonest pathology seen is HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN). This is a clinicopathological entity characterised by proteinuria and rapidly developing renal failure and histologically by a collapsing variant of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis with acute tubular necrosis and mild interstitial inflammation. It may progress rapidly to end-stage renal disease (within 6 months). HIVAN appears to be the commonest cause of renal disease in HIV-infected patients in South Africa, although the exact prevalence is unknown. The disease affects predominantly black males, although it has been described in patients of mixed race. Current thoughts with regard to pathogenesis revolve around the role of HIV in the renal epithelium and the effects of cytokines, including transforming growth factor-beta and basic fibroblast growth factor, on renal structures. ...
Background: Extracellular matrix (ECM) molecules have been increasingly implicated in cardiac remodeling, and in particular the myocardial response to pressure overload. Podocan is a novel member of the small leucin-rich-repeat protein family of ECM proteins. We recently have characterized podocan as an inhibitor of the migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells. Now we are testing if podocan deficiency has an effect on pressure load-induced cardiac hypertrophy.. Methods and Results: We induced pressure overload cardiac hypertrophy using aortic banding (AB) in mice (age 10-12 weeks) with podocan-/- (n=6) and wild-type (WT) (n=7) genotype. Four weeks after AB, cardiac anatomy and function were assessed by echocardiography. In addition, histological analysis was used to assess the myocardial response to AB. Podocan-deficient mice showed significantly greater cardiac hypertrophy compared with WT mice after AB, whereas no significant differences were observed when comparing ...

Background: A wide clinical spectrum of kidney diseases affects patients with HIV. Studies employing varying criteria for diagnosis of kidney disease have reported a variable prevalence of these diseases in patients with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa and suggest that a broader spectrum of histological lesions in HIV-associated kidney disease exists in African populations. It is often difficult to distinguish HIVAN from non HIVAN renal lesions on clinical grounds alone therefore renal sonography and renal biopsy are essential in the diagnosis of HIVAN. Objective: To describe the clinical presentation, renal sonographic and histological features of HIV seropositive patients with proteinuria in Mulago hospital. Methods: A cross-sectional descriptive study was carried out between June 2008 to January 2009 at Mulago Hospital renal clinic, ISS and CDC clinics. A total of 51 eligible patients were enrolled consecutively in to the study. Presence of significant proteinuria, defined as presence of 100mg of ...

A significant association was observed among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive adult cases in Lusaka, Zambia compared with HIV-negative controls for chronic diarrhea (68% versus 22%; P < 0.05), weight loss (54% versus 30%; P < 0.05), lymphadenopathy (44% versus 15%; P < 0.05), and skin eruption (33% versus 7%; P < 0.05). Among the HIV-positive children, a higher proportion had clinical evidence of tuberculosis when compared with HIV-negative children (8% versus 1%; P < 0.05). The study demonstrated an association between weight loss in HIV-positive adults and children and chronic diarrhea (odds ratio [OR] = 12.7, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 6.4-25.5; P < 0.001), persistent cough (OR = 7.2, 95% CI = 2.9-14.5; P < 0.001), and an age of 31-45 years (OR = 3.8, 95% CI = 1.8-8.3; P < 0.01).

Given the emerging epidemic of renal disease in HIV+ patients and the fact that HIV DNA and RNA persist in the kidneys of HIV+ patients despite therapy, it is necessary to understand the role of direct HIV-1 infection of the kidney. HIV-associated kidney disease pathogenesis is attributed in large part to viral proteins. Expression of Vpr in renal tubule epithelial cells (RTECs) induces G2 arrest, apoptosis and polyploidy. The ability of a subset of cells to overcome the G2/M block and progress to polyploidy is not well understood. Polyploidy frequently associates with a bypass of cell death and disease pathogenesis. Given the ability of the kidney to serve as a unique compartment for HIV-1 infection, and the observed occurrence of polyploid cells in HIV+ renal cells, it is critical to understand the mechanisms and consequences of Vpr-induced polyploidy. Here I determined effects of HIV-1 Vpr expression in renal cells using highly efficient transduction with VSV.G pseudotyped lentiviral vectors ...
Small heat shock proteins (sHsps) are a group of proteins with molecular mass between 12 and 43 kDa. Currently, 11 members of this family have been classified, namely HspB1 to HspB11. HspB1, HspB2, HspB5, HspB6, HspB7, and HspB8, which are expressed in brain have been observed to be related to the pathology of neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Alexanders disease, multiple sclerosis, and human immunodeficiency virus-associated dementia. Specifically, sHsps interact with misfolding and damaging protein aggregates, like Glial fibrillary acidic protein in AxD, β-amyloid peptides aggregates in Alzheimers disease, Superoxide dismutase 1 in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cytosine-adenine-guanine/polyglutamine (CAG/PolyQ) in Huntingtons disease, Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3, Spinal-bulbar muscular atrophy, to reduce the toxicity or increase the clearance of these protein aggregates ...

Multiple studies have linked podocyte gene variants to diverse sporadic nephropathies, including HIV-1Cassociated nephropathy (HIVAN). but can also produce proteinuric nephropathy (May-Hegglin anomaly and Fechtner, Epstein, and Sebastian syndromes; refs. 12C16). The mechanism by which coding or noncoding variants result in diverse nephropathies is not obvious. Several 1448671-31-5 supplier studies have suggested a requirement for gene-gene and gene-environment conversation for determination of complex nephropathy phenotypes (4, 17C20). For example, haploinsufficient mice do not develop overt nephropathy but have increased susceptibility to experimental glomerular injury or develop nephropathy in conjunction with a null allele in either the synaptopodin (proto-oncogene (4, 21). These data suggest that podocytes can counteract moderate genetic lesions and restore cellular homeostasis without organ failure, but additional insults produce decompensation and disease. From this perspective, genetic ...

This phenomenon might be epigenetic from protection from the Sleeping sickness disease caused by the tsetse fly. Apparently on the same chromosome 22, APOL1(apolipoprotein -1) and MHY9 sit next to each other. The studies are now showing that due to natural selection and linkage disequilibrium, the APOL1 gene might be the strong candidate for a gene that is responsible for increased incidence of renal disease in African Origin Americans. Recent JASN articles in Nov 2011 issue also shed light on newer findings as described above: Having the APOL-1 variant can lead to more arterilopathy and renal vessel changes and that was confirmed on biopsy findings. Interestingly, only certain glomerular diseases are at risk- FSGS types including HIVAN but not IgA nephropathy or diabetic nephropathy. Given the severity of the disease, these patients need dialysis at an earlier age. More copies of this gene- more you are at risk of FSGS and ESRD. ...

The proportion of black or Hispanic patients with HIV-associated NHL increased from 41% in 2004 to 55% in 2012 (P < .0001). Chemotherapy was received by 81% of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, 90% of those with Burkitt lymphoma, 61% of those with primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), and 35% of those with primary central nervous system lymphomas (PCNSL). Between 2004 and 2012, this proportion increased only for patients with PCNSL (P < .00001). Chemotherapy was less likely to be received by patients who were older, black, or without private insurance. It was delivered more frequently in hospitals designated as academic (OR for nonreceipt, 0.68; 95% CI, 0.51-0.92) or in hospitals that had ≥3 HIV-positive cases per year (OR, 0.71; 95% CI, 0.58-0.86). Survival improved in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (P = .007), Burkitt lymphoma (P = .0002), and PCNSL (P = .019), but not in those with PEL (P = .94). Receipt of chemotherapy in patients with PEL was not associated with better ...

FSGS shows that part of glomeruli or part of capillary loops of glomeruli has pathological changes. FSGS may develop Renal Failure within a short time
FSGS is a syndrome of diverse etiology that shares a common histologic pattern of focal and segmental glomerular scarring, together with glomerular proteinuria and progressive loss of renal function. The majority of FSGS cases involve primary FSGS, adaptive FSGS, or APOL1 FSGS; less common are viral FSGS, Mendelian FSGS, and medication-associated FSGS. As there are no validated methods to specifically distinguish sporadic (nonfamilial) FSGS, the present study included subjects with both primary and adaptive FSGS as well as subjects with familial FSGS. Because of the strong predictive power of family history, and because only a small percentage of individuals affected by known etiological factors develop FSGS, the genetic background of the individual is thought to play an important role (7).. The critical locus of injury in FSGS is now thought to be the podocyte (5), a terminal-differentiated cell that has limited replication potential (51). In the normal kidney, small numbers of podocytes are ...
Researchers appear to have solved the mystery of why some patients infected with HIV, who are using antiretroviral therapy and show no signs of AIDS, develop serious depression as well as profound problems with memory, learning, and motor function. The finding might also provide a way to test people with HIV to determine their risk for developing dementia.

High levels of circulating TNF and its receptors, TNFR1 and TNFR2, predict the progression of diabetic kidney disease (DKD), but their contribution to organ damage in DKD remains largely unknown. Here, we investigated the function of local and systemic TNF in podocyte injury. We cultured human podocytes with sera collected from DKD patients, who displayed elevated TNF levels, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) patients, whose TNF levels resembled those of healthy patients. Exogenous TNF administration or local TNF expression was equally sufficient to cause free cholesterol-dependent apoptosis in podocytes by acting through a dual mechanism that required a reduction in ATP-binding cassette transporter A1-mediated (ABCA1-mediated) cholesterol efflux and reduced cholesterol esterification by sterol ...

This seems to controvert the dedifferentiated podocyte hypothesis, since podocytes express WT1 in all stages of development (7, 9, 67). However, mature PECs do not express WT1 (9), so it seems possible that PECs could be the origin of hyperplastic proliferating cells in FSGS. Furthermore, normal PECs often express PAX-2 (7) and at times also Ki-67 (5, 45, 46), a well-known proliferation marker, indicating their innate proliferative capability. Dijkman et al. (14, 15) and Nagata et al. (45) have provided further evidence to support this hypothesis, as they have shown that cytokeratin-positive hyperplastic cells are in continuity with PECs on Bowmans capsule in FSGS including the collapsing variant, either idiopathic or associated with HIV infection or pamidronate use. In addition, Dijkman et al. (14) found synaptopodin-positive podocytes covering the collapsed glomerular ...
While "Getting to Zero" and "AIDS-free Generation" have become the new catch phrases of the AIDS crisis of late, the harsh reality exposed by the CDCs report-that three out of every four people living with HIV in the U.S. are unable to keep their virus under control-means that the urgency can no longer be denied. Successful management of HIV, despite one-pill-once-a-day treatments, goes beyond viral suppression. There are lots of reasons why patients are failing their HAART regimens or not entering treatment and care early enough. Restoring and maintaining a viable immune system and successfully addressing HIV-related noncommunicable diseases requires clinical innovations and advances in our current approach to treating HIV.. HIV-associated enteropathy is typically mistaken for a side effect of ARVs, which can exhibit, in part, the same symptoms (diarrhea, malabsorption and weight loss). While an endoscopy is the best means for diagnosing HIV-associated enteropathy, the procedure, while ...
