Title: What Factors Predict Liver Cancer Among Men With HIV, Hep C and Cirrhosis?
Post by: Hep Editors on March 17, 2017, 09:57:14 am
Age is associated with an increased risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, the most common form of liver cancer) among those with HIV and HCV who have cirrhosis of the liver.

Researchers analyzed data on 2,689 HIV/HCV-positive people with cirrhosis in the Veterans Affairs HIV and HCV Clinical Case Registries. They excluded females because there were so few in the registries; those who lacked data on their HCV viral load, follow-up CD4 count or HIV viral load; and those who were diagnosed with cirrhosis within 90 days of their HIV diagnosis.
