Fibrosis May Be Common in Those With HIV and Hep B
« on: March 06, 2019, 10:51:19 am »
People coinfected with HIV and hepatitis B virus (HBV) may have a high rate of significant liver fibrosis, based on an analysis of the liver health of a cohort of such individuals, Healio reports.

Publishing their findings in The American Journal of Gastroenterology, researchers analyzed liver disease parameters in a group of 114 people coinfected with HIV and HBV who were on combination antiretroviral treatment for both viruses. They looked at fibrosis severity as well as what is known as the Ishak Histologic Activity Index (HAI), which grades fibrosis on a scale of 0 (no fibrosis) to 6 (cirrhosis).
