At the completion of this educational session, participants should be able to:
- Identify HIV-infected individuals who may be at higher risk for kidney disease.
- Recognize the limitations of current screening tests for kidney disease and nephrotoxicity in HIV-infected individuals.
- Understand the diagnosis and management of ART nephrotoxicity.
Christina Wyatt’s clinical and research interests focus on acute and chronic kidney disease in patients with HIV and hepatitis C. Ongoing projects include a prospective research cohort in Mount Sinai’s active HIV practice, as well as two studies investigating the utility of currently available GFR estimates in patients with HIV infection. Study objectives in the HIV cohort include description of the prevalence, incidence, and
predictors of acute and chronic kidney disease in the era of antiretroviral therapy, as well as improved understanding of the impact of HCV co-infection on the risk for kidney disease.
