[Articles] HIV, hepatitis B virus, and hepatitis C virus co-infection in patients in the China National Free Antiretroviral Treatment Program, 2010–12: a retrospective observational cohort study
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:15:31 +0100 | The Lancet Infectious Diseases
Screening for viral hepatitis is important in individuals diagnosed as HIV positive. Effective management for viral hepatitis should be integrated into HIV treatment programmes. Long-term data are needed about the effect of hepatitis co-infection on HIV disease progression. (Source: The Lancet Infectious Diseases)

[Comment] Hepatitis virus and HIV interactions
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 06:15:01 +0100 | The Lancet Infectious Diseases
Because of shared routes of transmission, 5–25% of the 34 million people with HIV worldwide are co-infected with either hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), or both, with the highest number of co-infections in low-income countries. The negative effect of HIV infection on the progression of HBV and HCV infection is well established, with high rates of viral persistence, higher hepatitis viral load, and a more rapid progression to liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in HIV-positive patients.

Incidence of natural resistance mutations in naïve chronic hepatitis B patients: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Thu, 16 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
ConclusionsThe resistance mutations occurred frequently in untreated CHB patients, especially in China. The lamivudine resistance had the highest natural prevalence rate, while other nucleos(t)ide analogues showed rarely spontaneous resistance. Detecting the spontaneous resistance mutations will benefit the clinical management of CHB patients. (Source: Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:17:46 +0100 | Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics
ConclusionsIn this Canadian study of nucleos(t)ide analogues‐treated patients with chronic hepatitis B, the incidence of HCC was lower than expected, suggesting that NA reduce the risk of chronic hepatitis B‐related HCC. (Source: Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics)
