A systematic review of hep C treatment outcomes in this population shows they have high cure rates and relatively low reinfection rates.
Consistent use of medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder can apparently reduce this risk.
Researchers followed people with a drug-injection history who had been cured of hepatitis C and were receiving addiction treatment.
A study of gay and bi men with HIV in Australia who had been cured of hep C found they associated hep C with injection drug use.
Researchers used mathematical modeling to analyze the benefits of treating with buprenorphine/naloxone on-site.
Gay and bisexual men with HIV who are cured of hep C are reinfected at a high rate.
HIV-positive men who have sex with men in Western nations historically have a significant risk of contracting hepatitis C through sex.
Using opioid medication treatment such as methadone appears to lower this risk.
Researchers from a German cohort found that the reinfection rate for men who have sex with men was almost 10 percent per year.
Ending the epidemic is going to require addressing the fact that certain individuals are at high risk of reinfection after a cure.
This is occurring despite the fact that hepatitis C is increasingly being cured among the French HIV population.
Consequently, researchers advocate treating hep C during its early, or acute, phase among HIV-positive individuals.
This is according to a recent study of a group of European men who have sex with men who were likely infected sexually.
