Abstract Liver enzyme elevations (LEE) were investigated in 2717 episodes of initiation of antiretroviral therapy since January 2010 in 1982 HIV patients. Serum hepatitis C virus (HCV)-RNA was positive in 24\%. Any grade of LEE was recognized in 9\% of episodes, being 6\% in HCV-negative and 17\% in HCV-positive patients (P < 0.001). Grades 3-4 LEE only occurred in 0.4\% of patients. Overall, LEE were more frequent with ritonavir-boosted darunavir and atazanavir than with raltegravir and etravirine.
