Community report – RITA: HIV and kidney disease
29 January 2015. Related: On the web.
The latest issue of RITA, focused on kidney disease in people with HIV.
This issue includes three review articles and an interview with Christina Wyatt, a top HIV/kidney expert.
Dr. Wyatt offers insights on screening HIV-positive people for kidney disease, referring them to nephrologists, and using TDF. She frankly weighs prospects for TAF, the next-generation tenofovir that may have fewer renal and bone side effects.
The three review articles analyse research on kidney disease prevalence in people with HIV, kidney disease as a cardiovascular risk factor, classic and HIV-specific risk factors for chronic kidney disease, and CKD screening and monitoring in people with HIV.
