A beneficial co-infection?

(1/1)

SirPrize:
There is an "Orphan Virus" called GBV-C (a form of hepatitis but without the harmful effects) that reduces HIV transmission from mother to infant.  It is also another possible avenue to a vaccine.  Here's the article.

Jacques:
Glad to have news of this friendly GBV-C, sometime named "Hepatitis D".  I saw something about it 2 years ago on a French forum. They were saying that persons co-infected with Hiv and GBV-C were "progressing much slower to aids than those with Hiv alone"

I hope there will be more studies about that virus.
