OBJECTIVE To describe the frequency and the characteristics of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cases that appeared in HIV/hepatitis C virus (HCV)-coinfected patients with previous sustained virological response (SVR) and to compare these cases to those diagnosed in patients without SVR. METHODS All HIV/HCV-coinfected patients diagnosed with HCC in 26(More)
Although clinical manifestations of adrenal dysfunction are uncommon in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), subclinical functional abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis are frequent. Patients infected with HIV usually have higher basal serum cortisol and lower serum dehydroepiandrosterone concentrations than(More)
Sexual disturbances develop in some patients treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). To evaluate sexual dysfunction and the influence that different antiretrovirals could have on those parameters, we conducted a prospective study in patients with stable clinical condition attending an HIV outpatient clinic. A total of 351 evaluations were(More)
Sexual disturbances have been related to protease inhibitor therapy, but the effect of specific protease or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors is largely unknown. We analysed the rate of sexual dysfunction and the sexual hormonal profile in patients undergoing antiretroviral therapy. All antiretroviral drugs were associated with different(More)
Based on the rationale that hemodynamic, oxygen transport, and perfusion derangements describe physiologically important abnormalities in critically ill patients, we devised a Critical Care Scoring System (CCSS). The database includes a retrospective analysis of 318 patients managed with pulmonary artery catheters during 1986 to 1988. For comparison, Acute(More)
A total of 351 determinations of sexual hormones were carried out in 189 HIV-infected men in stable clinical condition. Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) was associated with increased levels of both testosterone and 17beta-estradiol, but not with luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Protease inhibitors were more(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the prevalence, effects of HAART, and implications of hyperprolactinemia in HIV-infected patients. METHOD 192 HIV-infected men in stable clinical condition who underwent 355 measurements of prolactin were prospectively studied. Other clinical, immunologic, virologic, and laboratory parameters were also evaluated at the time of each(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the epidemiological characteristics of new cases of HIV infection diagnosed from 1997-2001 and compare them with AIDS cases (1991-2001). METHODS Data were retrospectively collected on new cases of HIV infection detected in the Basque Country (1997-2001) and were compared with AIDS cases (1991-2001). RESULTS A total of 912 new cases(More)
