Possible to Reverse Lipoatrophy with STI?
Feb 26, 2004

Has there been any documented success with lipoatrophy reversal afer implementing a STI with good HIV control? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Response from Dr. Moyle

Very limited data. However, I generally assume that if a drug switch can lead to fat recovery then an STI will do the same job. You will see in this forum, however, anecdotes where evident recovery has not occurred off treatment. Regards Graeme Moyle
