CONTEXT Treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients is a growing concern. Most data on the virologic efficacy and safety of the combination of peginterferon alfa-2b and ribavirin in coinfected patients come from uncontrolled studies. OBJECTIVE To study the safety and efficacy of(More)
HIV infection is associated with a high incidence of AIDS-related lymphomas (ARLs). Since the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the incidence of AIDS-defining illnesses has decreased, leading to a significant improvement in survival of HIV-infected patients. The consequences of HAART use on ARL are under debate. This study compared the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence and determinants of diabetes in a cohort of HIV-infected adults initiated with combination antiretroviral treatment (cART) in 1997-1999 and followed up to 2009. DESIGN Prospective study of 1046 patients at 47 French clinical sites. METHODS Potential determinants of diabetes occurrence, defined by confirmed increased(More)
Bacterial spondylodiskitis--i.e., adjacent vertebral osteomyelitis and diskitis--was studied in 80 adult patients. The infection was due to Mycobacterium tuberculosis in 31 cases (39%) and to pyogenic bacteria in 49 cases (61%). The latter pathogens included gram-negative bacilli in 16 cases (20%), Staphylococcus species in 15 (19%), Streptococcus species(More)
Because of the increasing use of immunosuppressive and biological drugs, the occurrence of opportunistic infections has become a key safety issue for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Consequently, improvement of healthcare workers' knowledge of this domain is urgent. In this review, the preventive measures that would help to reduce the rate(More)
PURPOSE Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-associated invasive aspergillosis (IA) is a rare condition, which is mainly reported as isolated cases either antemortem or at autopsy. The role of AIDS itself is controversial, because many of the reported patients exhibited the classic risk factors such as neutropenia and steroid therapy. The aims of this(More)
Since human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) share the same modes of transmission, HIV-HCV co-infected patients are relatively common. Until recently, the clinical course of HCV in co-infected patients was overshadowed by the high morbidity and mortality of HIV disease. Recent reductions in morbidity and mortality among HIV-infected(More)
BACKGROUND Patients treated with tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) antagonists have an increased risk of infection, but infection due to Legionella pneumophila has rarely been described in patients receiving such therapy. METHODS A registry involving 486 clinical departments in France was designed by a multidisciplinary group (Recherche Axée sur la(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate factors associated with better health-related quality of life (HRQL) during the first three years after starting PI-containing antiretroviral treatment. Clinical, social and behavioural data from the APROCO cohort enabled us to analyze simultaneously the association between HRQL and patients' relationships with their(More)
