Daily multivitamin supplements were found to reduce HIV disease progression among men and women in several observational studies and randomized trials, and to provide an important low-cost intervention that could be provided to adults in early stages of HIV disease to prolong the time before antiretroviral therapy is recommended. Next, research priorities include examining the roles of minerals, including selenium, in HIV infection, as well as determining the safety and the efficacy of micronutrient supplements among individuals who are advanced in their disease and who are receiving antiretroviral therapy.

Administration of vitamin E suppresses CD95L mRNA expression and protects T cells of HIV-1-infected individuals from CD95-mediated apoptosis.
