Summary

  • HCC screening recommended in HIV-infected patients with HBV or HCV coinfection, although not yet prospectively assessed (Management Guidelines)[Bower 2014]
  • HIV-infected patients with HCC less likely to be retreated at recurrence, leading to decrease in OS vs HIV-negative patients with HCC[Berretta 2011]
  • In transplant setting, significant potential exists for adverse drug interactions between ART and immunosuppressive therapy[Antonini 2004; Rudek 2011]
