History of Changes
A study concerning viral kinetic with 10 co-infected HIV-HCV patients on treatment with
peginterferon alfa-2a + ribavirin o IFN + ribavirin was reported in Conference on
Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections 2002 by Dr. Torriani shown half-life of HCV virions
and the viral clearance was larger than mono-infected patients.
The doubt is if this difference in viral kinetic of HIV-HCV co-infected patients versus mono-infected is related with the loss of profited on treatment.
In the APRICOT trial patients genotype 2/3 were treated for 48 weeks and the relapse rates was only 2%.
The present study want to evaluate is the treatment extent for 24 weeks more in patients genotype 1 and/or 4 will be improve the percentage of patients with viral clearance at the end of the follow-up period, to prevent relapsed in patients with response at the end of treatment.
Patients will be randomized to received 180 µg/week of peginterferon alfa-2a + 1000-1200 mg/day of ribavirin during 24 weeks more or control.

To evaluate efficacy of extend treatment during 24 weeks more in co-infected HIV-HCV patients with genotype 1 and/or 4 who at 44 week of treatment with peginterferón alfa-2a in combination with ribavirin have RNA-HCV undetectable.Eligibility
|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years to 65 Years|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||Yes|
- Patients on treatment with Peginterferon alfa-2a (180 µg/week) in combination with Ribavirin (1000-1200 mg/day) who are RNA-HCV undetectable at 44 week
- RNA-HCV positive at 48 week before study and genotype 1 or 4.
- HIV-1 positive: ELISA y Western-blot.
- Stable status of HIV-1 infection in the opinion of the investigator, (patients who are not expected to progress during the study).
- Negative urine or blood pregnancy test (for women of childbearing potential) documented within the 24-hour period prior to the first dose of study drug. Additionally, all fertile males and females must be using two forms of effective contraception during treatment and during the 6 months after treatment end.

- Patients with other treatment for chronic hepatitis, different which of inclusion criteria is described.
- More of tree weeks from the end of treatment with Peginterferon alfa-2a (180 µg/week)
