(TRANSAM - Actively Recruiting)
NIH is conducting a research study to evaluate HIV-positive patients age 18 and older (without HBV or HCV co-infection) who have chronically elevated hepatic transaminases while on HAART, for evidence of fibrosis or other liver pathology, by examining liver biopsy specimens. The study will include a screening visit, a physical exam, laboratory tests, an abdominal CT, and a liver biopsy procedure. A specialized ultrasound to look at liver stiffness may also be performed. There will be up to four visits before liver biopsy and four follow-up visits after biopsy. Financial compensation will be provided for visits completed.
