Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) demonstrated potent and sustainable antiviral efficacy and a good safety profile in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) in controlled clinical trials. Real-world data are important to confirm effectiveness and safety data in patient populations encountered in routine clinical practice. This non-interventional,(More)

Progressive liver toxicity is a concern in HIV-infected patients. Although liver biopsy remains the gold standard for liver assessment, its invasiveness, sampling errors, variability in interpretation and expense do not make it an ideal routine follow-up exam. During the last decade, new non-invasive tools have been developed for the assessment of hepatic(More)
