Original Source: Alterations in Immune Function are Associated with Liver Enzyme Elevation in HIV and HCV Co-infection after Commencement of Combination Antiretroviral Therapy.

The cause of liver enzyme elevation during combination antiretroviral therapy in people with human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis C virus co-infection is unclear. We followed 12 subjects (five with alanine transaminase elevation) for 24 weeks after combination antiretroviral therapy commencement. Immune responses against hepatitis C virus, human immunodeficiency virus and other viruses were assessed by interferon-γ ELISpot. Plasma cytokines, chemokines and anti-hepatitis C virus antibody levels were...
