Background: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infections among HIV-1 infected individuals are growing worldwide health problems characterized by lack of effective vaccines, need for expensive treatment, chronicity of morbidity and ass For the last few years, the number of immunocompromised individuals is growing fast, due to more intensive antitumor therapy, transplantations and the concomitant immunosuppressive therapy, and the HIV epidemic, as well.

Immunosuppressed patients very often are affected with nosocomial infections in hospitals, and with infections in the society. The defense from viral diseases depends mainly   The role of viral co-infections and paraproteins in the development of hematological malignancies (HMs) in HIV remains unclear.

Using our large database of HIV+ patients, we investigated whether co-infection and paraproteinemia increase the risk of   Viral infections, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and hepatitis C.
