Dr. Gutierrez-Contreras' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gutierrez-Contreras "Dr. Gutierrez specializes in stroke prevention, treatment, and care. His interest is focused on the large arteries of the brain and the mechanisms underlying pathological changes in these arteries as a consequence of vascular risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking. Because individuals with HIV might be at higher risk of stroke and dementia, Dr. Gutierrez's has studied subjects with HIV to evaluate if vascular risk factors interact with HIV, or whether the medications given to treat HIV contribute to the development of brain arterial disease in this population. Understanding how vascular risk factors injure the brain arteries might lead to innovative ways to prevent strokes in the general population and in those with HIV."
