· In this interim analysis, higher Week 24 on-treatment responses were seen in chronic genotype 1 HCV/HIV co-infected patients treated with T/PR (71%) compared to PR alone (55%).

· TVR exposures were comparable across ART regimens.

· Overall safety and tolerability of patients treated with TVR combination treatment was comparable to that previously observed in chronic genotype 1 HCV monoinfected patients.

--Hyperbilirubinemia was noted in patients receiving T/PR with an ATV/r-based regimen and was primarily unconjugated.
