Hepatitis B und C bei HIV-Koinfektion


Fehr, Jan; Schärer, Verena; Hirzel, Cédric; Rauch, Andri (2014). Hepatitis B und C bei HIV-Koinfektion. Therapeutische Umschau. Revue thérapeutique, 71(8):490-496.

Abstract

Hepatitis B and C virus infections are a leading cause of death in HIV-positive patients. Furthermore, the management of these infections is complicated. Psychosocial problems and comorbidities are frequent barriers to the optimal management of these patients. Furthermore, the rapid changes in treatment strategies particularly in Hepatitis C make it difficult to treat patients outside specialized centers. An improvement in treatment uptake and efficacy can only be achieved through coordinated efforts between private care physicians and specialized centers.
