Post by: Hep Editors on July 24, 2019, 10:46:33 am
More research has affirmed that direct-acting antiviral (DAA) treatment for hepatitis C virus (HCV) has a high efficacy rate among those coinfected with HIV, Healio reports.

Publishing their findings in Open Forum Infectious Diseases, researchers conducted a retrospective cohort analysis of 784 people with HIV who received treatment with DAAs at various sites in Spain, Italy and the United States. The study authors collected data on the cohort members regarding their use of drugs, alcohol abuse, mental health and housing status.
