Effect of interferon-based therapies for HCV upon risk of diabetes is controversial. Effect of newer directly acting antiviral agents (DAA) upon this risk is unknown. We sought to determine the effect of HCV treatment upon the risk and incidence of diabetes.

Veterans with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection may face geographic obstacles to obtaining treatment.
Patients co-infected with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are a priority target for HCV treatment. The simplicity and efficacy of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) should help overcome patient, provider,...
Treatment of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) has entered a new era since the introduction of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs). Numerous clinical trials have shown that treatment response as well as tol...
In late 2014, Portugal implemented a national program for the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C with directacting antiviral agents. This program has made Portugal one of the first Europe...
Predictors of hepatocellular carcinoma recurrence associated with the use of direct-acting antiviral agent therapy for hepatitis C virus after curative treatment: A prospective multicenter cohort study.
Previous studies have suggested an association between the use of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) for treating hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and the resulting decrease in the incidence of he...
To determine the treatment efficacy, safety and long-term outcomes of chronic hepatitis C patients receiving directly acting antivirals in Taiwan
- Hepatitis C is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that primarily affects the liver. It is one of the main causes of chronic liver diseases worldwide ....
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of direct acting anti-viral agents (DAA) therapy in chronically infected Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) patients using an individualized response guided therap...
The primary objective of this study is to prospectively analyse psychiatric outcomes, specifically depression and anxiety in patients with hepatitis C virus infection who are initiated on ...
Background: Treatment of some diseases can suppress the immune system. This can cause other conditions to reactivate. Recent cases have shown that hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivates in p...
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).
A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.
An alkylamino-alcohol complex of inosine used in the treatment of a variety of viral infections. Unlike other antiviral agents, it acts by modifying or stimulating cell-mediated immune processes rather than acting on the virus directly.
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.
A strain of HEPATITIS A VIRUS which causes hepatitis in humans. The virus replicates in hepatocytes and is presumed to reach the intestine via the bile duct. Transmission occurs by the fecal-oral route.
