Study Description
Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the liver toxicity in HIV-infected patients with chronic hepatitis B and/or hepatitis C, who start a new antiretroviral drug regimen, as well as the influence of the degree of pre-existing liver fibrosis on the incidence of liver toxicity.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Hepatitis B, Chronic Hepatitis C, Chronic Drug: antiretroviral drugs
