Vitamin D in HIV-Infected Patients on HAART
Vitamin D, Immune Activation, and Metabolic Abnormalities in HIV-Infected Patients on Antiretroviral Therapy

This is a research study to look at vitamin D deficiency (low levels) in men and women with HIV. As part of your regular medical care, you will be screened for vitamin D deficiency. If your levels are low, and you choose to start using vitamin D supplements, the investigators would like to take some blood before and after you start using vitamin D to see how this affects your levels of HIV, T cells, cholesterol, and other blood levels. The investigators will provide you with vitamin D supplements for the first 24 weeks (6 months) of the study. If you and your physician decide that you should continue taking vitamin D supplements after that time, you will be responsible for purchasing your own vitamin D supplements.

Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Vitamin D Deficiency
  • HIV
Dietary Supplement: Vitamin D
50,000 IU vitamin D3 twice weekly for 5 weeks, followed by 2000 IU daily maintenance supplementation to complete 12 weeks. At the end of the 12-week period, 25(OH) D levels will be checked. If the subject is still deficient, he/she may undergo a second period of supplementation (at the discretion of their provider) to complete a total of 24 weeks. After 24 weeks, we anticipate all subjects will be kept on daily maintenance supplementation by their primary physicians.
