May 25, 2009

Does it follow that once you have Hepatitis B, you are also 90% HIV infected?

what if hepatitis b is cleared? please help. thank you doctor mcgovern

Hepatitis B does not necessarily co-travel with HIV. There are plenty of people with HBV alone and HIV alone - lower numbers of patients have both.
