    VITAMIN D AND HIV/AIDS~~definitely an area that would benefit from more research. I wish this would attract the interest of PhD students.

    There are 3o clinical trials of vitamin D and HIV, one using 7,000 IU

    There are a lot of positive indications about vitamin D and HIV

    Greetings hlahore@gmail.com!

    Thanks for the information. IMO-it certainly stands to reason that there would be a lot of positive indications about Vitamin D and HIV.

    I am a bit dismayed that not much Vitamin D/HIV research is happening where I work.
