Although more studies are needed to define the mechanisms involved, it is increasingly clear that HIV and alcohol use may have synergistic pathology, resulting in greater rates of disease progression in HIV patients, fueled by the loss of intestinal mucosal cells and chronic immune activation due to microbial translocation.
