A link between chronic hepatitis C virus infection and subclinical cardiovascular disease indicated a need for thorough and ongoing cardiovascular risk assessments among patients with the infection, according to recent data.
In the cross-sectional study, researchers evaluated 994 HIV-infected and -uninfected men enrolled in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS). Patient data were gathered at study entry and semiannual visits through questionnaires and physical examinations. Biological samples also were collected for testing and repository storage.
