CONCLUSION: DAAs are effective and safe in the treatment of recurrent HCV infection in LT recipients with history of HCC. Relapse to pre- and post-LT DAA therapy is associated with post-transplantation HCC recurrence. PMID: 33033569 [PubMed]

Authors: Singh G, Yoshida EM, Rathi S, Marquez V, Kim P, Erb SR, Salh BS Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. If diagnosed early, curative treatment options such as surgical resection, loco-regional therapies, and liver transplantation are available to patients, increasing their chances of survival and improving their quality of life. Unfortunately, most patients are diagnosed with late stage HCC where only palliative treatment is available. Therefore, biomarkers which could detect HCC early with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity, may play...

We examined the clinical characteristics and post-LT outcomes of patients with sarcoidosis using the United Network for Organ Sharing database from 1985 to 2016 and compared them to patients (entire cohort as well as age, gender, and year of LT-matched counterparts) with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). For the matched design, a conditional logistic regression was used for categorical variables and marginal generalized estimating equation regression models for continuous variables. Survival functions were constructed using the Kaplan-Meier estimator. Results: A total of 206 pat...

It is controversial regarding the treatment allocation for patients with stage I hepatocellular carcinoma (SI-HCC). The aim of the present study was to compare the long-term survival in SI-HCC patients undergoing liver transplantation (LT), liver resection (LR), local tumor destruction (LTD), or none. SI-HCC patients diagnosed between 2004 and 2015 were extracted from the SEER 18 registry database. Multivariable Cox models and propensity score matching (PSM) method were used to explore the association between surgical methods and long-term prognosis. A total of 5165 patients with stage I (AJCC, 6th or 7th) HCC were include...

We report a rare case of HBV reactivation in a patient with HCV infection after DAA therapy. Patient concerns: In 1996, a 53-year-old female was identified as infected with HCV at a medical check-up, following which she visited our hospital. She was infected with HCV genotype 2b, and at follow up in 1997, was found to be hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and antibody against HBsAg negative, antibody against HBV core positive. She then experienced malignant lymphoma in 2001 at 58 years of age. Complete remission was achieved following chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. In 2014, she ...
