Sustained Virological Response after Early Antiviral Treatment of Acute hCV/HIV Coinfection

Prof. Dr. Joachim Hauber (Heinrich-Pette-Institut)

Early antiviral treatment of acute HCV infection with IFN-alpha results in a sustained virological response (SVR) in the majority of monoinfected patients; this is less clear in patients with chronic HIV infection who experience acute HCV infection. Here, we investigate immunologic parameters following concomitant acute HCV/HIV coinfection.
