BACKGROUND: Data from high-income countries suggest increasing hepatitis C virus (HCV) prevalence/incidence among HIV-infected men who have sex with men (MSM), but limited data derive from low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs). METHODS: We recruited 4,994 MSM from 5 states across India using respondent-driven sampling (RDS). Logistic regression incorporating RDS weights and machine learning feature selection were used to identify correlates of prevalent HCV, and Bayesian phylogenetic analysis ...

Although the prevalences of HIV and HCV are significantly higher amongst PWID in India compared to the general population, the strains circulating within this group have not been well-characterized. Through subgenomic sequencing of viruses present in residual plasma from an HIV/HCV prevalence study conducted amongst PWID across five cities in India in 2016–2017, a total of N = 498 HCV and N = 755 HIV strains were classified from N = 975 study participants. Considerable HCV diversity was identifi...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Accurate hepatitis C virus (HCV) incidence estimates are critical for monitoring progress towards HCV elimination goals, including an 80% reduction in HCV incidence by 2030. Moreover, incidence estimates can help guide prevention and treatment programming, particularly in the context of the US opioid epidemic. METHODS: An inexpensive, Genedia-based HCV IgG antibody avidity assay was evaluated as a platform to estimate cross-sectional, population-level primary HCV incidence usi...

Abstract Background & Aims We evaluated the impact of integrating HCV testing/education into integrated care centers (ICCs) delivering HIV services to people who inject drugs (PWID) across India using a cluster-randomized trial. Methods We compared ICCs with usual care (UC) in the PWID stratum (12 sites) of a 22-site cluster-randomized trial. In 6 sites, ICCs delivering HIV testing, harm reduction, other preventive services and linkage to HIV treatment were scaled from opioid agonist therapy cen...

The availability of generic direct acting antivirals (DAAs) for hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment has prompted many low-and-middle-income countries to launch HCV elimination programs. Because the efficacy of some of these generic DAAs varies by HCV viral subtype, information on subtype distribution can contribute important information to these elimination programs. We conducted a cross-sectional serosurvey to characterize HCV subtype diversity among HIV positive people who inject drugs (PWID) ac...

Abstract Background : Virological monitoring (VM) and drug resistance (DR) analysis are crucial for effective HIV management. Due to the high cost of commercial assays, VM and DR analysis is not performed in resource-limited-settings. Objective : The objective of this study is to develop a pooling based algorithm for the combined identification of virologic treatment failure (VTF) by nucleic acid testing (NAT) and DR by sequencing - NAT+DR assay. Study Design : We enrolled 559 participants on fi...
