HIV positive and HIV negative patients have similar survival rates following liver transplant
Date:4/24/2009

. The patient groups compared in this analysis included:

  1. HIV positive patients who tested negative for both hepatitis C and hepatitis B
  2. HIV negative patients with hepatitis C
  3. HIV positive patients with hepatitis C

The three patient groups were comparable according to the Model End Stage Liver Disease (MELD) scores, which is a numerical scale to score disease severity and improve organ allocation in transplantation. HIV positive patients were younger compared to HIV negative patients (mean 42.2 years versus 51.2, p=0.001) and HIV positive patients co-infected with hepatitis C were younger (mean 39.9 years versus 51.8; p=0.0001) than HIV negative patients with hepatitis C.
