A novel biomarker for gut leakage as a diagnostic tool for HIV disease progression

This project will investigate a novel plasma biomarker and assess its potential for identifying gut leakage (gut barrier dysfunction), and its association with immune HIV-disease progression.

Such biomarkers offer a simple and robust diagnostic tool for better HIV management and therapeutic decision-making.
