Protective effect of coffee consumption on all-cause mortality of French HIV-HCV co-infected patients, Maria P. Carrieri, et al.
Coffee has anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties but its effect on mortality risk has never been investigated in patients co-infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). This study shows that elevated coffee consumption (≥3 cups/day) halves all-cause mortality risk in patients co-infected with HIV-HCV. The benefits of coffee extracts and supplementing dietary intake with other anti-inflammatory compounds need to be evaluated in this population.
