HIV-positive men living in New York City who clear hepatitis C virus (HCV), whether spontaneously or through treatment, are reinfected with hep C at a high rate that is comparable to that of their European counterparts.

Previous studies conducted among HIV-positive MSM in Europe have found that those treated for hep C with interferon-based regimens have annual reinfection rates of 3 to 15 percent. To date, there are no data available regarding HCV reinfection rates in similar cohorts in the United States or among those cured of the virus with direct-acting antiviral (DAA) treatment.
