Abstract

Hyperuricemia, its Prevalence and Correlation with Metabolic Syndrome in Anti-Retroviral Naive HIV Cohort: Review of the Literature

In the world, the incidence of HIV infection is rising. In 1990, there were 8 million people infected with HIV, and in 2010, UNAIDS reported the infected population of 34 million with HIV/AIDS worldwide. Since the beginning of the epidemic, racial and ethnic minorities have been disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS.
