Research

Acute kidney injury (AKI) plagues hospitalized patients with worsened short-term and long-term outcomes. In-hospital mortality is greatly increased in patients afflicted with AKI.  Moreover, the long-term risks of developed ESRD as well as mortality are also negatively impacted.  Ambulatory and in-hospital data descrive the HIV-infected patient population as especially susceptible to AKI.  The reasons for this susceptibility are unknown. The studies in our lab investigate the mechanisms that may result in higher rates of AKI in HIV-infected patients.
