Vitamin E Is a NASH Treatment Option for People With HIV
« on: April 15, 2020, 10:17:07 am »
For people living with HIV and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), vitamin E treatment is a safe an effective option for treating the liver disease.

A research team led by Giada Sebastiani, MD, of McGill University Health Center, conducted a single-center Phase IV open-label, single-arm clinical trial of 24 weeks of 800 international units of daily vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) among 27 people with HIV and NASH.

Between February 2015 and September 2018, the study authors recruited people with HIV who were not coinfected with hepatitis B or C virus (HBV or HCV) and did not consume more than 21 alcoholic drinks weekly if they were men or 14 drinks weekly if they were women. The participants also needed to be on antiretroviral treatment for HIV and have had a fully suppressed viral load for at least 24 weeks.
