Core Tip The transmembrane 6 superfamily member 2 (TM6SF2) E167K variant has been identified as an independent predictor of severe liver steatosis in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related chronic hepatitis (CH) lacking human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. We analyzed the impact of the TM6SF2 E167K variant on the liver histology of 167 HIV/HCV co-infected patients with CH. The TM6SF2 E167K variant was found to be an independent predictor of severe fibrosis, while an independent association with severe steatosis was demonstrated only for patients with a non-3 HCV genotype.
