It remains controversial whether the eradication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) by interferon (IFN)-free anti-HCV therapy using direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) suppresses or promotes hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. We investigated the influence of HCV eradication by DAA therapy on HCC development, by observing changes of non-hypervascular hypointense nodules (NHHNs) by gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (EOB-MRI).

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection was shown to cause hepatic steatosis or suppression of serum lipid levels. However, little is known about the changes in hepatic steatosis following HCV eradi...
Scarce reports have commented on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) behavior after direct-acting antivirals (DAAs).
The long-term impact of sustained virological response (SVR) after direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) on the hypercoagulability associated with HCV cirrhosis is unknown. We longitudinally evaluated the e...

Chronic Hepatitis C virus infection (HCV) is associated with extrahepatic manifestations and an increased prevalence in cardiovascular disease. New direct acting antivirals (DAA) have revolutionized H...
Background and Aims: Arrival of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) agents against hepatitis C virus (HCV) with high-sustained virological response (SVR) rates and very few side effects has dras...
The investigators assessed non-organ-specific antibodies before and 24 weeks after the end of therapy with direct-acting antivirals, in order to better clarify the clinical relevance of th...
This study is designed to obtain and store samples of serum and liver tissue in HCV (HepC Virus)-infected patients being treated with direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy, and to determin...

A direct-acting vasodilator that is used as an antihypertensive agent.
An alkaloid found in opium but not closely related to the other opium alkaloids in its structure or pharmacological actions. It is a direct-acting smooth muscle relaxant used in the treatment of impotence and as a vasodilator, especially for cerebral vasodilation. The mechanism of its pharmacological actions is not clear, but it apparently can inhibit phosphodiesterases and it may have direct actions on calcium channels.
The study, based on direct observation, use of statistical records, interviews, or experimental methods, of actual practices or the actual impact of practices or policies.
