Abstract:

To study the epidemiology of HBV and HCV infection in HIV infected patients using various markers of HBV and HCV. 70 HIV positive ART naïve patients and 70 HIV negative controls were included in the study. Their samples were retrospectively analyzed for various markers of HBV infection like HBs Ag, HBe Ag, total anti HBc Ab and Anti HBs Ab. The co infection of HBV with HIV was observed in 14.28% cases, compared to 2.85% individuals in the control group with HBV infection defined on the basis of HBs Ag positivity. HBV infection was found more prevalent in patients with CD-4 count <350 cells/ul. A higher prevalence of HBe Ag positive disease was observed in HIV infected individuals. HBV as well as HCV infection is more prevalent in HIV infected individuals as compared to HIV non infected individuals. Also, a higher rate of HBV infectivity was observed in HIV infected patients.


Keywords: HBV, HBs Ag, HBe Ag, Total anti HBc Ab, Anti HBs Ab, HIV, CD-4, Co infection.
