Vincent Lo Re III, M.D., M.S.C.E.
Dr. Lo Re is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology and a Senior Scholar in the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics. He is also an attending physician in the Viral Hepatitis Clinic and Infectious Diseases Consultation Service at the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, an affiliate hospital in the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
Clinical and Research Interests
Dr. Lo Re also evaluates clinical outcomes of hepatitis therapy in the setting of HIV. Recent work has examined the incidence and risks factors for anemia and weight loss during hepatitis C therapy among HIV-infected patients. Another active area of research is adherence to combination pegylated interferon and ribavirin hepatitis C therapy. Methodologic interests include use of population-based databases for epidemiologic research, ascertainment and adjudication of clinical outcomes, and pharmacoepidemiology.
