Convincing data that support routine use of preventive therapy against hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation in radiotherapy (RT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are lacking. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence, clinical significance, and risk factors of HBV reactivation after RT. Medical records of 133 HBsAg (+) HCC patients who received radiotherapy from March 2009 to February 2016 were reviewed. Patients were divided into two groups: 1) non-antiviral group, those who did not receive ...
The risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains among patients who are treated with antiviral therapy (AVT). The degree of liver fibrosis has been suggested as an important biomarker to stratify the risk of developing HCC. We tested whether liver stiffness (LS) measured using transient elastography is useful over two noninvasive serum biomarkers of fibrosis [the aspartate aminotransferase to platelet ratio index (APRI) and fibrosis-4 (FIB-4)].
Antiviral therapy (AVT) reduces the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). This multicenter retrospective study investigated the effects of AVT and hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related factors on the risk of HCC development in a cohort with heterogeneous HBV status.
Kaposi sarcoma is a vascular tumor related to herpesvirus-8 and is promoted by immunosuppression. For the last 15 years, HIV patients have had access to organ transplantation. The dual immunosuppression of HIV and immunosuppressive treatments might increase the risk and severity of Kaposi sarcoma.
Hepatitis C direct acting antiviral (DAA) therapy has evolved so that infected patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) can now anticipate the opportunity for sustained virologic response equivalent to that of the broader population of patients with hepatitis C. This has revolutionized the field of transplantation as it relates to renal transplant candidates with hepatitis C and the use of grafts from hepatitis C virus (HCV) viremic donors. In treating this population of patients, special conside...
It is unclear whether there are differences between direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for hepatitis C virus in risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after antiviral therapy. We aimed to compare different DAA regimens with respect to risk of de novo HCC following antiviral therapy.
Kaposi's sarcoma was first described in 1872 by Moritz Kaposi. To date, it is considered a malignant disease is originating from the endothelial cells of the lymphatic vessels believed to be infected with HHV-8. The current classification defines four major epidemiological forms of Kaposi's sarcoma: classical, endemic, AIDS-associated, and iatrogenic.
The opioid risk tool (ORT) is a commonly employed measure of risk of aberrant drug related behaviors (ADRB) in patients with chronic pain prescribed opioid therapy. In this study the discriminant predictive validity of the ORT was evaluated in a unique cohort of patients with chronic nonmalignant pain (CNMP) on long-term opioid therapy (LTOT) that displayed no evidence of developing an opioid use disorder (OUD) and a sample of patients with CNMP that developed an OUD after commencing opioid therapy. Results...
Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is the most prevalent malignant neoplasia in human immunodeficiency virus positive (HIV+) patients for which the primary mode of management was chemotherapy.
In Pompe disease, anti-drug antibodies (ADA) to acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) enzyme replacement therapy contribute to early mortality. Assessing individual risk for ADA development is notoriously difficult in (CRIM-positive) patients expressing endogenous GAA. The individualized T cell epitope measure (iTEM) scoring method predicts patient-specific risk of developing ADA against therapeutic recombinant human GAA (rhGAA) using individualized HLA-binding predictions and GAA genotype. CRIM-negative patients we...
Oral epithelial cells (OECs) represent the first line of defense against viruses that are spread via saliva, including Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). Infection of humans by KSHV and viral pathogenesis begins by infecting OECs. One method OECs use to limit viral infections in the oral cavity is the production of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), or host defense peptides (HDPs). However, no studies have investigated the antiviral activities of any HDP against KSHV. The goal of this study was to ...
Most patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection will undergo antiviral treatment with direct-acting antivirals (DAA) and achieve sustained virologic response (SVR). We aimed to develop models estimating HCC risk after antiviral treatment.
Patients in need of long-term renal replacement therapy (RRT) are known to be at increased risk of herpes zoster, occurring when the latently present varicella-zoster virus (VZV) reactivates. In this study we investigated immunity to VZV in patients receiving RRT, with the aim of better understanding the mechanism behind the increased risk.
Retrospective studies have found an unexpectedly high incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) among patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated cirrhosis who received direct-acting antiviral (DAA) agents. We analyzed data from the ANRS CO12 CirVir cohort to compare the incidence of HCC in patients with cirrhosis who received DAA therapy vs patients treated with interferon (IFN).
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common cardiac arrhythmia that increases the risk of stroke. Medical therapy for decreasing stroke risk involves anticoagulation, which may increase bleeding risk for certain patients. In determining the optimal therapy for stroke prevention for patients with AF, clinicians use tools with various clinical, imaging and patient characteristics to weigh stroke risk against therapy-associated bleeding risk.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with production of different serum non-organ-specific antibodies (NOSA) and risk for developing autoimmune disorders. The clinical significance of these phenomena is not fully understood.
Little reliable data is available about the liver stiffness measurement (LSM) for fibrosis monitoring in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients on antiviral therapy. We aimed to assess the accuracy of LSM in fibrosis monitoring during 78-week antiviral therapy in CHB patients.
Tenofovir and telbivudine combination therapy rapidly decreases viral loads in immune-tolerant chronic hepatitis B patients awaiting assisted reproduction: an open-label, randomized, controlled study.
Immune-tolerant chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients awaiting assisted reproduction (AR) are required to initiate antiviral therapy because of laboratory safety concerns. The antiviral therapy in this group has not been well assessed. We sought to explore the efficacy and safety of the combination therapy (COM) of tenofovir (TDF) and telbivudine (LdT).
Currently, hepatitis C antiviral therapy is entering a new era with the use of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs). However, the precise immunological influences of DAA therapy in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients are insufficiently understood. This study aimed to investigate the effects of DAA therapy on the frequency of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), T lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells in CHC patients. Thirty-two treatment-naive CHC patients were treated with DAA therapy, and the fre...
Hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related cirrhosis increases risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). After a sustained virologic response (SVR) to anti-HCV therapy, the risk of HCC is reduced but not eliminated. Recent developments in antiviral therapy have markedly increased rates of SVR. Guidelines recommend indefinite biannual ultrasound surveillance after SVR for patients with advanced fibrosis before treatment. Surveillance for HCC is cost effective before anti-HCV treatment; we investigated whether it remains...
Epidemiological data suggest that chronic hepatitis C virus infection (CHC) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk, but it is unknown if it is associated with endothelial dysfunction. We aimed to assess the effect of antiviral treatment on endothelial function in non-cirrhotic adults with CHC.
Since 2014, all-oral, interferon (IFN)-free, direct-acting antiviral (DAA) regimens including daclatasvir + asunaprevir dual regimen, ledipasvir/sofosbuvir combination, ombitasvir/paritaprevir/ritonavir combination, elbasvir + grazoprevir dual regimen, and glecaprevir/pibrentasvir combination have been approved for the treatment of hepatitis C. Studies on DAA regimens reported that DAA therapy causes far fewer adverse reactions compared with IFN therapy and exhibits high efficacy in treating hepatitis C vir...
The risk of renal events in HBsAg-positive cancer patients receiving tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) or entecavir (ETV) antiviral prophylaxis during chemotherapy has not been evaluated. This study aimed to evaluate the renal safety of TDF and ETV during chemotherapy. Consecutive, 219, HBsAg-positive cancer patients treated with TDF (n=106) or ETV (n=113) for antiviral prophylaxis during chemotherapy with baseline serum creatinine (SCr)
Recently, PAGE-B score and Toronto HCC risk index (THRI) have been developed to predict the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Caucasian patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). We aimed to validate PAGE-B scores and THRI in Asian patients with CHB and suggested modified PAGE-B scores to potentiate the predictive performance.
To determine if variations exist in the KSHV host receptor EPHA2's coding region that affect KSHV infectivity and/or KS prevalence among South African HIV-infected patients.
