- Treatment of Hepatitis C and Anemia in Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Patients. Dieterich, Douglas T. // Journal of Infectious Diseases;5/16/2002 Supplement 2, Vol. 185, pS128
Because of shared modes of transmission, co-infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) is common. Co-infection with HIV increases HCV virus load, liver-related mortality, and the risk of sexual and perinatal transmission of HCV, and it may accelerate HCV...
