A Phase 4, Observational, Multicenter, 10-year Prospective Cohort Safety Study Comparing Subjects With HIV-associated Abdominal Lipohypertrophy Exposed to EGRIFTA® (Tesamorelin for Injection) to a Similar Group of Subjects Not Exposed to EGRIFTA®
The purpose of this observational, 10-year, prospective cohort study is to assess the
potential safety concerns of long-term exposure to EGRIFTA® in HIV-infected subjects with

onto the study.
Exclusion criteria 1 through 4 are based on the contraindications for EGRIFTA®.
1. Disruption of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, including conditions such as
