Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are major public health concerns. We aimed to determine the prevalence of HBV and HCV infections among HIV-infected patients, and to identify the main circulating hepatitis strains in Morocco. The study was carried out in 503 HIV-infected patients. Our survey indicated(More)
In order to investigate the association between length variation of the CD209L neck region and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 susceptibility, disease progression, and treatment response outcomes, we genotyped 139 HIV-1-seropositive and 109 seronegative individuals. The heterozygous genotype 6/5 showed a significant increased risk of HIV-1 infection(More)
Behçet's disease is a multisystemic vasculitis characterized by the association of recurrent oral and genital ulcers with systemic involvements, particularly ocular, nervous and vascular manifestations. The association of Behçet's disease and aids/HIV infection is rare. The role of HIV infection in the pathomechanism of both diseases is unclear. We report a(More)

Pneumocystosis is an opportunistic disease caused by invasion of unicellular fungus Pneumocystic jirovecii which is responsible for febrile pneumonia among patients with cellular immunodeficiency especially those HIV infected. Despite the decreasing of its incidence due to the introduction of antiretroviral therapy, as well as anti-Pneumocystis prophylaxis(More)
Cryptococcosis is a cosmopolitan fungal serious condition due to an encapsulated yeast Cryptococcus neoformans. This is the systemic fungal infection the most common in HIV infection. This yeast is present in the environment and its main entrance in the body is the respiratory tract. Its gravity is linked to its tropism for the central nervous system. It(More)
Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection and progression varies widely among individuals. Interferon-λ3 exerts anti-HIV function by activating JAK/STAT pathway-mediated innate immunity. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms of the interleukin 28B (IL28B) gene, and the risk of acquisition,(More)
