Mitochondrial damage in adipose tissue of untreated HIV-infected patients.

Posted Dec 15 2010 12:00am
Naive patients not on treatment also have some changes in their mitochondria.  So boys and girls, take your carnitine, coenzyme q-10 and B vitamins to protect your tiny energy factories that seem to be affected by the virus and its treatments.  Decrease in mitochondria or its DNA has been linked to aging and other diseases.

We saw a great presentation from Dr Wallace, expert on mitochondria, at the Aging and HIV Conference in Baltimore this past October.  Here is an interview with him
