BACKGROUND Both natural history and treatment outcome of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection are influenced by genotypes and viral load. Information about factors determining HBV genotype distribution and viraemia in HIV/HBV-co-infected patients is scarce. METHODS All HIV-positive patients living in Europe and Argentina recruited in EuroSIDA (1994-2006) were tested for serum HBV surface antigen (HBsAg). Chronic carriers were further characterized virologically at one central laboratory… CONTINUE READING
