Title: Hepatitis C Rarely Clears Spontaneously in Those With HIV
Post by: Hep Editors on April 19, 2018, 10:16:45 am
People living with HIV who contract hepatitis C virus (HCV) rarely spontaneously clear the latter virus without treatment, Healio reports. Consequently, researchers advocate changing direct-acting antiviral (DAA) labels to specify that they should be prescribed during the acute, or very early, phase of hep C infection among those coinfected with HIV.

Christoph Boesecke, MD, of the University of Bonn in Germany, presented findings from the PROBE-C study at the 2018 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Boston.
