To the Editor: In the study by Dr Isanaka and colleagues,1 patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy were treated either with standard-dose or high-dose multivitamin supplements, with no difference in outcomes. The authors concluded that high-dose vitamin supplements have no benefit in these patients.
