ConclusionOur study showed excellent efficacy with the safety profile of this drug combination in end-stage renal disease patients. However, larger prospective studies and multicenter randomized controlled trials are needed for further confirmation.

ConclusionTreatment of HCV among stage 2, 3a, and 3b patients was achieved safely with a sofosbuvir-based regimen. We recommend that stage-4 patients wait until starting hemodialysis or transplantation.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a global health problem with significant health and economic burden, which can lead to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and affect multiple organ systems. In addition, prevalence of hepatitis C remains higher in patients with CKD, including those on chronic hemodialysis and in individuals with a kidney transplant than in the general population. There has been a dramatic shift in the management of hepatitis C since Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcome (KDIGO) published its 2008 guideline for the prevention, diagnosis and management of hepatitis C in CKD.

CONCLUSION: The absolute number of patients and rates of incidence and prevalence on dialysis continued to increase; the mortality rate tended to rise. There were obvious regional and state discrepancies in these rates. PMID: 30968930 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Kidney transplantation is the best treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) because of a significant survival benefit conferred compared to patients who remain on haemodialysis.1 Although the prevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in patients with ESRD has significantly declined over time, it remains at least 4-times higher than in the general population.2,3 Chronic HCV or HBV infection can result in chronic liver disease, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma4 –6 and increase the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

Publication date: January 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 1Author(s): Vivek Soi, Chantale Daifi, Jerry Yee, Elizabeth AdamsAn in-depth understanding of viral hepatitis is important to the care of patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis. Both hepatitis B and C viruses are acquired through hematogenous spread and can lead to horizontal transmission. Concurrent hepatic and renal injuries have ominous outcomes with significant morbidity. Hepatitis B incidence has decreased through practices including vaccination of nonimmune individuals and isolation of patients with the d...

Abstract Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) is the most common cause of infection related deaths in USA according to Central Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report in 2016. Hepatitis C is a blood borne virus and is common in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and in hemodialysis (HD) dependent patients. A majority of patients with CHC could remain asymptomatic and are still undiagnosed. Early detection of CHC and linkage of infected patients to care for evaluation and treatment is the standard of care as emphasized by Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcome (KDIGO) and American Association for the Study of Liver Disease- In...

AbstractHepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is now considered a systemic disease due to the occurrence of extra-hepatic manifestations. Among these, the renal involvement is frequent. HCV infection, in fact, is strongly associated with proteinuria and chronic kidney disease (CKD) and negatively affects the prognosis of renal patients. In the last few years, availability of more specific and effective drugs against HCV has dramatically changed the clinical course of this disease. These drugs may provide further advantages in the CKD population as a whole by reducing progression of renal disease, mortality rate and by increasi...
