Hep C Has Plummeted Among Men Living With HIV in London
« on: May 06, 2020, 11:31:38 am »
New cases of hepatitis C virus (HCV) among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM)  in London and Brighton, England, fell by nearly 70% between 2015 and 2018.

Publishing their findings in Clinical Infectious Diseases, Lucy J. Garvey, MD, of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cohort study of more than 9,000 HIV-positive MSM at risk for HCV who attended one of five HIV clinics in London and Brighton between 2013 and 2018. The sites reported all their diagnoses of recently acquired, or acute, HCV infections during the study period.

The patients at these clinics were provided access to regular HCV screening.
