In a recent small study of HIV-positive men who had recently contracted hepatitis C, Harvoni had a perfect cure rate.
People living with HIV are at greater risk for cardiovascular disease.
However, compared with the general population, HIV-positive individuals remain at higher risk for a slew of malignancies.
A recent meta-analysis found that the addition of hepatitis C raises a cardiovascular disease risk already elevated by HIV.
Even when HIV is fully suppressed, the virus is associated with as much as double the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
No. 5: As a 70-year-old white woman, I was one of the least likely people on the planet to contract HIV.
Living with HIV—even when the virus is well treated—is linked with a higher risk of compromised lung health.
Because PrEP can avert the need for expensive lifelong HIV treatment, its own considerable expense often makes good economic sense.
Heavy drinking may be quite hazardous to HIV-positive people.
People who are living with both HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) have a higher risk of developing non-AIDS-defining cancers.
Going on PrEP was also linked to a modest increase in STI diagnoses, but the shift was not statistically significant.
They’re mostly straight, white, rural and poor.
