BACKGROUND & AIMS Recent findings in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-monoinfected patients have shown a correlation between low serum levels of 25-OH vitamin D3 [25(OH)D3] and severe liver fibrosis and low sustained virologic response to therapy. Data are lacking in HIV-HCV coinfected patients. METHODS One hundred and eighty nine HIV-HCV coinfected patients, who received ≥80% of interferon (IFN) plus ribavirin therapy, were analyzed for baseline serum 25(OH)D3 levels. Correlations between serum 25(OH… CONTINUE READING
