Treatment options are limited for people infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) with decompensated liver disease. The C-SALT study assessed elbasvir (EBR) plus grazoprevir (GZR) in individuals with HCV genotype 1 infection and Child-Pugh class B (CP-B) cirrhosis.

Direct-acting antivirals effectively treat chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection but there is a paucity of data on their efficacy for acute HCV, when immediate treatment could prevent onward trans...
European treatment guidelines for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection recommend that people with genotype (GT)1a infection and baseline viral load ≤800,000 IU/mL receive elbasvir/grazoprevir (EBR/GZR)...
Elbasvir/grazoprevir is a once-daily fixed-dose combination therapy for the treatment of chronic HCV infection, including HCV/HIV coinfection.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The objective of this study was to predict the impact of EBR/GZR on th...
The real-world effectiveness and safety of all-oral direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for chronic hepatitis C (HCV) infection and chronic kidney disease (CKD) have not been fully elucidated. This study ...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a daily, fixed-dose, 8-week course combination of Elbasvir/Grazoprevir in treatment-naïve, non-cirrhotic patients who are mono-infected with hepatit...
Grazoprevir/elbasvir combination therapy is highly effective in the treatment of genotype 1b chronic hepatitis C, and the drug-drug interaction with central immunosuppressant, such as tacr...
This is a randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, multi-site, multinational, double-blind followed by open label period, Phase 3 trial of 100 mg of grazoprevir (MK-5172) in combina...
New and recently EMA/FDA approved direct acting antiviral (DAA) combination therapies cure 95% or more of the patients chronically infected with HCV genotype 1 and 4. Grazoprevir (MK-5172)...
This study is being done to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the drug combination grazoprevir (MK-5172) + elbasvir (MK-8742) in participants with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) genotype (GT)...
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).
Oral HCV-PROTEASE INHIBITOR effective against hepatitis C virus (HCV) serine protease NS3/4A. It is used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (Antivirals) genotype 1 infection in adults with compensated liver disease, including CIRRHOSIS.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS, a single-stranded RNA virus. Its incubation period is 30-90 days. Hepatitis C is transmitted primarily by contaminated blood parenterally, and is often associated with transfusion and intravenous drug abuse. However, in a significant number of cases, the source of hepatitis C infection is unknown.
A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
