Aids wasting syndrome (and TPN)
Jun 2, 2002

Where can i find a primary literature article about the effectiveness of TPN in patient with Aids Wasting Syndrome (including treatment)?

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

While total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is not widely used these days, there are some circumstances when it is quite appropriate (such as during acute pancreatitis). Thus, most research on TPN use in HIV disease was reported prior to routine use of HAART.

You can start by looking at Medline from the National Library of Medicine (link below) and entering key words TPN and HIV. Medline (PubMed)

Normal Period after infection and before syndrome
