Pilot Placebo Controlled Study With Lovaza in Cardiovascular Disease

2014-08-27 03:18:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Several studies have shown that there is an increased risk of heart disease in people with HIV. In this study the investigators are looking at the effect of Lovaza (Omega-3 fatty acid) on improving endothelial function and decreasing inflammation which may contribute to this increased risk. The investigators will also be doing studies to analyze coagulation and inflammation markers.
