The metabolic and molecular basis of lipodystrophy syndrome in HIV-infected patients is not known. Whether besides protease inhibitors, other antiretroviral drugs, HIV infection and reduction in viral load contribute to the development of lipodystrophy syndrome is not clear.
The project therefore has the following aims: 1) to characterize metabolic abnormalities and changes in body fat distribution, 2) to develop objective criteria for defining the syndrome and to ascertain prognostic indicators and 3) to elucidate the molecular basis of the lipodystrophy syndrome in HIV-infected patients.

- Effect of drug regimens on adiposity overall and regional at year one and year two as compared to baseline
- Effect of drug regimens on plasma glucose and insulin during OGTT at year one and two as compared with baseline
- Effect of drug regimens on serum triglycerides and HDL cholesterol at year one and two as compared with baseline
- Multiple regression models will also be constructed to assess which factors in addition to PI therapy explain the variability in body fat changes, serum glucose, insulin and lipoproteins.
