Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • HIV infection.
  • Older than 18 years.
  • Chronic hepatitis C.
  • Undetectable HIV viral load during one year before starting study.
  • To have not received HCV therapy during one year before starting study.
  • To have not started efavirenz or protease inhibitors o nucleoside analogs during 6 months before starting study.
  • Non contraindications for drugs included in this study.
  • To change an antiretroviral regimen including efavirenz or protease inhibitors by nevirapine due to side effects, interactions or pregnancy (NVP group)
  • To continue with a antiretroviral regimen including efavirenz or protease inhibitors (non-NVP group)

Both groups will be matched according to these variables:

  • Liver stiffness.
  • HCV genotype.
  • Hospital.
  • Time from starting antiretroviral therapy.
  • Previous third drug (EFV or PI) to introduction of NVP.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • HCV therapy during follow-up
