A Novel Hepatitis c micrOelimination Program in Non imprisonEd SenTenced With Alternative Measures

2019-05-05 16:45:32 | BioPortfolio


The objective of this study is to carry out a Micro-elimination program for HCV infection in a vulnerable population (people sentenced to non-custodial sentences). This group shares certain peculiarities with the prison population (vulnerability, addictions, mental disorders, etc.), is three times higher than the imprisoned population, and is regularly attended by Social Insertion Centers (CIS) in Spain. An additional objective is to link these people with the specific plans of the Government of Cantabria (Chronicity Plan, Care for Serious Mental Disorders, Harm Reduction Programs and the Center for Attention to Drug Addicts) as well as the Extended Bridge Program for Penitentiary Institutions, implementing the figure of a Navigator (a specialized professional in charge of helping subjects overcome barriers). It is an observational study based on the screening of disease in accordance with the recommendations of the health authorities. Once detected, patients will be referred to the corresponding specialized care following the usual clinical practice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).

A work that reports on the results of a research study to evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies. While most clinical studies concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans.

A phenomenon in which infection by a first virus results in resistance of cells or tissues to infection by a second, unrelated virus.

Works about clinical studies in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).
