hbv and hcv are both infections of the





HIV/HBV/HCV triple infection. I have all 3 viruses.HBV DNA is undetectable with Tenofovir/FTC and together with Nevirapine,my HIV is undetectable also.I was diagnosed with both of these in 1990.I am monitored every 4 months at the hospital and in March 2009 my liver function Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the main causes of chronic liver disease worldwide [1]. The long-term impact of HCV infection is highly variablePatients should be carefully characterized for the replicative sta-tus of both HBV and HCV, and hepatitis delta virus infection should be sought. : Both hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are a major global healthcare problem with more than 240 million and 70 million infected, respectively. Dual infection with HBV and HCV is not uncommon in geographic areas where a high endemic level of both infections is reported, such as Southeast-Asia and Mediterranean. Introduction Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are serious public health issues with different prevalence rates worldwide.Only one participant (0.6) was a carrier of both viruses. Also, no association was found between hepatitis B infections and the risk factors. Active viral replication of HBV and an aggressive natural history of both infections are seen in HTx recipients, however. The low prevalence of HBV- and HCV-related infection in recent series probably reflects current viral screening and vaccination policies. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the main causes of chronic liver disease worldwide [1]. The long-term impact of HCV infection is highly variablePatients should be carefully characterized for the replicative status of both HBV and HCV, and hepatitis delta virus infection should be sought.by hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is emerging in western countries as a major cause of mortality in HIV- infectedbarely seek for HCV treatment in China, and the potent antiretroviral drug which is active against both HIV and HBV-tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) is The hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV and HCV) are major etiological factors in the occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide, but most especially i nHBV infection is strongly associated with low socioeconomic status in both developed and de-veloping countries (IARC, 1994). Thus, when treating one or both viruses with antiviral drugs, periodic retesting of HBV DNA and HCV RNA levels during and after therapy is prudent, particularly if only one of the viruses is being treated at a time. Treatment of HCV infection in such cases utilizes the same The chimpanzee is the only established animal model that both is permissive for HCV infection and develops a disease syndrome mimicking that seen in humans.The pathway of hepatocarcinogenesis related to HCV infection appears to be different from that associated with HBV infection. Only 3.0 were positive for both HIV and HBV infection marker and 2.0 were positive for HIV and HCV markers.The co-infections were restricted to the age group of 30-39 and 40-49 years.

Regular screening for HIV, HBV and HCV among patients with a doubtful history can help in detecting many 5.1 of patients were coinfected with HBV while 1 were coinfected with HBV and HDV both. LFTs were significantly altered in dually and triply infected patients as compared to single HCV infection. Hepatitis C comes from the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis C is transmitted through direct contact with infected body fluids, typically through injection drug use and sexual contact. HCV is among the most common bloodborne viral infections in the United States. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection substantially cause series of liver diseases worldwide.Both clinical data and data from transgenic mice have determined that steatosis is a significant risk factor for HCC in HCV infected individuals.

Increasing numbers of patients with HIV, HBV and HCV have been successfully transplanted. Data is now available suggesting that, for each ofThis is in addition to the other complexities required in the assessment and management of both the HIV-infection as well as emerging comorbid conditions. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are the most important causes of chronic liver diseases, which may developHuman primary peripheral blood monocytes were cultured for 2 days in increasing concentrations of infectious HCV, infectious HBV or both viruses together. The association of HCV and HBV infection was calculated in relation to frequency per week of dialysis and total number of dialysis.In Australia and New Zealand, all-cause mortality was predicted by both the presence of anti- HCV at baseline (adjusted hazards ratio 1.29, 95 CI 1.05-1.58, P 0.016) and The model predicts quite substantial increase in both HBV and HCV infection rates for both males and females, particularly for HCV, which could outpace HBV infection for both genders (Figure 3). In the United States, the most common causes of viral hepatitis are hepatitis A virus (HAV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV).Both chronic HBV and HCV infection can be treated with antiviral medications. Chronic hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) is a liver disease. Some people are also infected with a different type of virus that affects the liver, hepatitis C virus (HCV).Although both viruses target the liver, they are completely different viruses. The tables below summarize healthcare-associated outbreaks of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection reported in the United States during 2008-2016.Outbreak of both Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C. Year State Persons Outbreak-Notified Associated for Infections2. The prevalence of HCV among the total cases studied was 17.85 , hepatitis B, 1.35 and hepatitis B and C (dual infection) 0.46.In all the subjects exa-mined, dual infection with both viruses (HBV and HCV) was detected in 0.46 subjects. If ART is not required, an interferon-basedregimen, which suppresses both HCV HBV, should be considered.Chronic hepatitis B infection interacts with HIV infection in several important ways: HBV increases the risk ofliver-relateddeath and hepatotoxicity from antiretroviral therapy. Acute hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in chronic carriers of hepatitis B virus (HBV): the impact of underlying active HBV replication on persistence ofiral interference between hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus ( HCV) has recently become of interest to both clinicians and virologists.1 2 Finally, both hepatitis B and hepatitis C are also associated with extrahepatic manifestations of disease. In both infections, extrahepatic manifestations can be.Although HBV and HCV are both hepatotropic viruses that induce acute and chronic liver disease, they differ markedly in the way that HEPATITIS B. Infection with HBV may either be self-limited or progress to chronic infection.HCV can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis. The acute process does not require treatment but frequently progresses to chronic infection. HBV DNA, hepatitis B nucleic acids. Can be used to monitor infectivity and viral load (quantitative PCR). HCV, hepatitis C virus.IFN, interferon is an antiviral agent used in the treatment of both HBV and HCV infections. IVDU, intravenous drug user. 1-The symptoms of acute viral hepatitis. caused by HAV, HBV, HCV, HDV, and HEV are similar (3).A-Coinfection (acute hepatitis B and D)(2) : Co-infection occurs when an individual is infected with both HBV and HDV at the same time (9). The infection is generally similar in severity to acute Introduction. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are one of the major health problems in the world (1). In previous studies, it had been estimated that HBsAg carrier rate was about 3 in Iran (2). According to the recent Iranian national health survey Both infection courses have in common an acute phase which is associated with viral replication, detectable viraemia and sometimes with clinical symptoms. A chronically persisting infection without viral clearance almost always occurs with HIV, frequently with HCV, and sometimes with HBV. Infection with hepatitis B and C virus (HBV and HCV, respectively) affects the liver and results in a broad spectrum of disease outcomes.population are infected with HCV, resulting in a total number of 120 to 170 million people7, 8 .There is a distinct geographical variation in both HBV and HCV In conclusion, active HBV infection and anti-HCV are both common in HIV- infected patients in Rwanda and are associated with a slower rate of CD4 recovery in the context of HIV-suppressive ART. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) share common mode of transmission and both are able to induce a chronic infection. Dual HBV/HCV chronic coinfection is a fairly frequent occurrence of HCV infected patients developing chronic infection [1]. HBV/HCV and Monokine Induced by Gamma-Interferon (MIG) contribute to infection alters the state of liver homeostasis inducing inlammatory both HBV and HCV associated inlammatory manifestations and liver responses. Treatment of viral hepatitis due to dual HBV/HCV infection represents a challenge. Key words: Hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, coinfection, epidemiology, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) 1. IntroductionThe exact number of patients infected with both HCV and HBV is unknown. The hepatitis B virus (HBV) is transmitted between people through contact with the blood or other body fluids, including semen and vaginal fluidThe hepatitis C virus (HCV) is spread through direct contact with infected blood.Getting vaccinated is the best way of preventing hepatitis B infection. Hepatitis B virus/hepatitis C virus (HBV/HCV) dual infection is common among high-risk individuals.Our results clearly suggest a competition between HBV and HCV infection when the liver is infected with both viruses, and HBV replication is dominant in dual- infected subjects. In HBV infection the disease progression is rather fast therefore very few patients reach the level of cirrhosis and that is why diabetes is lower in this population. In the present study diabetes was found more in cirrhotics (both HBV and HCV) Both infections should be fully assessed. Those patients with cirrhosis and HCV or HBV co-infection may be considered for a combined liver/kidney transplant in some circumstances. (ungraded).hepatitis B, and about 25 of people with HIV also have hepatitis C.2 Liver complications due to HBV and HCV infections have become the most common.If a person is co-infected with both HBV and HIV, management of both diseases can be complicated, so a visit to the appropriate specialists is Only one (0.25) out of the 400 examined blood donors was detected reactive for both HBsAg and anti-HCV antibodies. The study concluded that the seropositivity of HBV and HCV dual infection among population studied is uncommon. In our study, the frequency of Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C infections among pregnant woman attending the Federal Medical Centre, Ido-Ekiti were 6.78 and 1.39 respectively while 0.15 was recorded for both HBV and HCV co-infection. The term occult hepatitis B virus infection (OBI) is defined as the serologically undetectable hepatitis B surface antigen, despite of the presence of HBV DNAIn addition, the link between the occurrence of occult HBV and HCV infection is due to the same route of transmission so, the infection with both Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection is not uncommon as a result of similar routes of infection.In addition, coinfected patients are often found to have evidence of both HBV and HCV infection without a clear chronology of infection. Coinfection of both HDV and HCV among HBV patients with chronic infection existed with low significant rates. Conclusion: Differences in baseline HBV serological markers were detected in patients with various types of HBV infection. Patients at risk for hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection are similarly at risk for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. They both may be acquired via the parenteral route, such as blood transfusion, injection drug use, and hemodialysis Co-infection of HIV, HBV and HCV occurs due to shared transmission routes and common risk factors.Although both sexes were exposed to HBV, males were more likely to develop chronic HBV infection than females (male to female ratio of 2.6:1) 22, 30. Methods: The study cohort included 218 consecutive HIV infected patients who were examined for co-infection with HBV or HCV or both at Manipal teaching hospital, Western Nepal. The demographic data of the subjects was collected retrospectively.
