More specifically , 1.5% was co - infected with hepatitis B virus , and 4.9% was co - infected with hepatitis C virus .
Median baseline CD4 counts in hepatitis B virus co - infected patients were significantly lower ( 310 cells / mm3 ) than those in either hepatitis C virus co - infected patients ( 453 cells / mm3 ) or patients who were not co - infected with human immunodeficiency virus ( 414 cells / mm3 ) . CONCLUSION .
