BACKGROUND In France, it is estimated that 24% of HIV-infected patients are also infected with HCV. Longitudinal studies addressing clinical and public health questions related to HIV-HCV co-infection (HIV-HCV clinical progression and its determinants including genetic dimension, patients' experience with these two diseases and their treatments) are(More)
OBJECTIVES Development of direct acting antivirals (DAA) offers new benefits for patients with chronic hepatitis C. The combination of these drugs with antiretroviral treatment (cART) is a real challenge in HIV/HCV coinfected patients. The aim of this study was to describe potential drug-drug interactions between DAAs and antiretroviral drugs in a cohort of(More)
OBJECTIVES Pill burden during antiretroviral treatment (ART) is associated with worse adherence and impaired virological suppression. We compared the effectiveness, tolerance, and persistence on treatment of single tablet regimens (STRs) with non-STR once-daily regimens in patients receiving first-line ART. METHODS Retrospective analysis of naïve HIV-1(More)
BACKGROUND There are few data regarding HCV treatment initiation among HIV/HCV coinfected patients. The objective of this study was to analyze the changing patterns of HCV coinfection and HCV treatment initiation over time in a large French cohort of HIV/HCV coinfected patients at the beginning of DAA's era and to analyze factors associated with treatment(More)
INTRODUCTION Etravirine (ETR), a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor available in France since 2006, is indicated for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in combination with a ritonavir boosted protease inhibitor (PI) in antiretroviral treatment-experienced adult patients. To assess its impact in routine clinical care, our objective was to compare(More)
BACKGROUND A higher proportion of intermittent viremia (to have a HIV-1 RNA viral load>50 copies/mL not confirmed) was reported in the boosted protease inhibitor monotherapy arm in some studies including MONOI trial, and that could have an impact on the replenishment of the HIV-1 DNA reservoirs. The HIV-1 DNA level is an interesting marker which reflects(More)
In this paper we evaluate the economic gains of a joint deployment of femtocells and macrocells for the provision of Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband services in urban environments. Frequency bands of 2.6 GHz and 900 MHz are analyzed and different parameters related to the business model are considered for a 30% market share operator. Results show(More)
