Diet and microbiome in HIV-infected women

This project is a sub-study of a parent cohort study (PRACHITI) of HIV-infected and uninfected pregnant women in Pune, India. The aim is to examine the relationship between maternal inflammation, diet and gut microbiome, and that of infant birth outcomes including preterm birth. Maternal blood will be collected to assess inflammation markers and stool samples will be collected to determine gut microbiome profiles. Dietary data will be recorded using a food-frequency questionnaire.
