Until this last semester, against medical recommendation, our p continued alcohol consumption and irregular drug addict, despite an ongoing methadone program. Serum transaminases showed fluctuating values, always >2-3.5-fold normal levels, while HCV replication was confirmed by values of 1,200-4,000 × 103 IU/mL. During the last 6 months, our p first abandoned its former lamivudine-zidovudine-nevirapine therapy, leading to a combination including 2 novel nucleos(t)ide analogues (tenofovir-emtricitabine), associated to the protease inhibitors (PI) lopinavir-ritonavir, and finally in the last 3 months due to gastrointestinal intolerance-hypertriglyceridemia he introduced fosamprenavir-ritonavir on behalf of lopinavir-ritonavir. Already after lopinavir-ritonavir use, our p attained undetectable plasma HIV-RNA levels (always confirmed thereafter), while CD4+ count showed the greatest values even registered by our p (513-662 cells/μL). During 2 subsequent controls, qualitative HCV viremia tested negative for the first time, concurrently with normal transaminases.
