In contrast, non-AIDS-defining events, particularly comorbidities including hepatitis B and C co-infection
have become of particular clinical interest.
Following institutional approval, recruitment was undertaken within a London hospital amongst patients diagnosed with co-infection
for at least 5 years.
More on the report, "HIV/TB Co-Infection

This shows that the Tuberculosis is of major co-infection
of the HIV--infected patients.
HIV-infected patients and those with parasitic co-infections
returned 4 weeks after treatment.
Kublin said that these findings suggest that other co-infections
such as genital herpes or tuberculosis may have also contributed to the rapid expansion of HIV in Africa.
While these results are promising, organ rejection and co-infection
with hepatitis are still major problems in HIV+ transplantation recipients.
When we analyzed other associated infections (Table 2), we found an important difference between SMM and non-SMM patients regarding filarial co-infection
. Filariasis was present in up to 24.2% of SMM patients but in only 5.3% of non-SMM patients (p<0.01).
 HIV co-infection
is the most powerful known risk factor for progression of M.
- Funding will Support Research to Advance Scientific Understanding and Improve Patient Care in Viral Hepatitis, Co-Infection
, Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis -
The occurrence of co-infection
is quite common in commercial birds in Pakistan since both are endemic in the country.
To look for evidence of co-infection
with these 4 tickborne pathogens, we tested the serum of 52 adult patients with erythema migrans who had not received treatment for Lyme disease.
