BACKGROUND: Interleukin-7 (IL-7) is a critical factor for T cell development and for maintaining and restoring homeostasis of mature T cells. Polymorphisms at α-chain of the IL-7 receptor (IL7R or CD127) gene are related to evolution of HIV-infection, but there are no data concerning the evolution of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The aim of this study was to analyze the association between IL7R polymorphisms and severe liver disease in HCV/HIV coinfected patients. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study in 220 naïve patients who underwent a liver biopsy...

BACKGROUND: The course over time of different fibrosis parameters in HIV/HCV-coinfected patients who did not suppress HCV during anti-HCV therapy, and in patients who suppressed HCV but relapsed after treatment discontinuation is unclear. METHODS: A total of 248 patients were included in the study (81 non-responders, 49 relapsers, and 118 control, untreated patients). Four primary non-invasive fibrosis indices (transient elastometry, APRI, Forns, and FIB4), as well as other fibrosis parameters, were evaluated in each group at baseline, at the end of anti-HCV therapy and at the end of follow-up (median 39...
