31 Mar HIV reservoir in blood and inflammation in the intestine.
The purpose of this study is to understand whether HIV medications can produce inflammation in the intestine (“your gut”) and affect the size of the HIV reservoir in people living with HIV.
There are two study visits:
General health assessment and medical history
Endoscopy and biopsies from both the rectum and the duodenum (small intestine).
Blood samples (from vein).
Participants will receive up to $400
