This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Harvoni® (ledipasvir/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF) fixed-dose combination (FDC)) treatment under real world use in Japan. Among adult patients with chronic genotype 1 hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and treated with Harvoni in routine clinical use, the primary objective of this study is to evaluate the incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) under real world settings.
Observational Model: Ecologic or Community, Time Perspective: Prospective

In the medical literature there case reports that Harvoni improves symptoms in patients with PCT. However, this has never been systematically tested. Therefore, the purpose of this study i...
Treatment protocol to see if people with hepatitis C (HCV) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) who are treated with Harvoni for 12 weeks have improvements in their kidney disease.
The primary objective of this post-marketing surveillance study is to collect and assess data related to the safety and effectiveness of Harvoni® (ledipasvir/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF)) treatme...
There are now several licensed drug treatments for patients with HCV infection. These medications have been shown to be very effective in getting rid of the virus in patients with HCV infe...

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).
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.
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.
