After 27 years if having this virus, I feel somewhat at ease. It helps knowing that these transplants took and are viable. Just knowing that these transplants weren't rejected as so many anticipated, and that I could get a transplant if needed, makes me more comfortable. Knowing my liver could easily need a transplant in the future, I am at ease knowing it is a possibility. I won't be written off just becasue of HIV. I am indebted to these researchers.

It is thrilling news that these transplants took even with the HIV co-infection. I feel somewhat at ease knowing that if I shouls need a transplant, studies show it to be a vialble procedure. And I won't be written of becuase of HIV.

After 25 years with HIV, testing negative for, and being vaccinated against, Hep B, 4 years ago I developed liver disease from ddi liver scarring, fatty liver from lypodystrophy, and I tested positive for Hep B. Having not exchanged body fluids in 25 years meant the Hep B was with me all along, but dormant. Mt. Sinai's liver team in NY studied 50 documented cases nationwide of 'd' drug liver scarring patients. Thier livers do not further deteriorate when the 'd' drugs are stopped.
