Abstract
We designed a study to evaluate the efficacy of a 24-week treatment strategy in HIV/hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 3-coinfected patients achieving rapid virologic response for a first HCV treatment with pegylated interferon plus ribavirin (peg-IFN/RBV). Our results suggest that a shorter course of peg-IFN/RBV therapy may be sufficient in this population.
