A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of insulin resistance (IR) on the response to hepatitis C virus (HCV) therapy in HIV-HCV-coinfected patients.

METHODS: A total of 238 HIV-HCV-coinfected patients (74% male, mean +/-sd age 40 +/-5 years, mean alcohol intake 2.5. Multiple logistic regression with stepwise selection was used to estimate independent factors associated with sustained virological response (SVR).

RESULTS: IR was present in 32% and significant liver fibrosis (Metavir>or=F2) in 74% of patients. Patients with SVR (96/238 [40%]) were more likely to be infected with HCV genotype 2 or 3 (54% versus 27%; Por=F3; 45% versus 30%; P=0.03). By multivariate analysis, a HOMA-IR>2.5 had a negative effect on the SVR (odds ratio 0.49 [95% confidence interval 0.26-0.92]; P=0.05).

CONCLUSIONS: A high HOMA-IR level is frequently found in HIV-HCV-coinfected patients and is associated with a reduced SVR rate. Improving insulin sensitivity might be a useful adjunct to HCV therapy in HIV-HCV-coinfected patients.
