This study evaluated the time-dependent association of RTP concentrations in erythrocytes, RBV-induced toxicity, and virological response to RBV treatment for hepatitis C. Methods: A total of 28 Japanese patients with CHC were treated with RBV/peg-interferon/simeprevir or RBV/sofosbuvir and were genotyped for ITPA variants (rs1127354 and rs7270101). We measured RTP concentrations in erythrocytes in a total of 76 samples collected at 4, 8, and 12 weeks from the initiation of treatment. Results: The ITPA rs1127354 variant was found in 7 patients. This was associated with significantly higher RTP concentrations in eryth...

This is so far the first meta ‐analysis about TM6SF2 polymorphisms and chronic liver disease. Our pooled analyses suggested that rs58542926 polymorphism was significantly associated with chronic liver disease in both Asians and Caucasians. Future investigations are warranted to explore potential roles of other TM6SF2 polymorph isms in the development of chronic liver disease. AbstractBackgroundSome genetic association studies tried to investigate potential associations of transmembrane 6 superfamily member 2 (TM6SF2) polymorphisms with chronic liver disease. However, the results of these studies were not consistent. Thus...

Authors: An J, Lee JS, Sharpsten L, Wilson AK, Cao F, Tran JN Abstract Objective: To describe pill burden before and after hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment initiation among patients newly treated for HCV infection, and to evaluate the association between HCV pill burden and gaps in HCV therapy. Methods: This was a retrospective administrative claims study of patients treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for HCV from 01 November 2013 - 31 July 2016. HCV pill burden was defined as the pill count per day for the index HCV regimen. Mean overall pill burden (HCV medications plus non-HCV medications) was calcula...

We sought to determine the rate of adverse events (AEs) and discontinuations among Thais treated during acute HIV infection (AHI) and switched to DTG-based regimens. METHODS: Thai participants in the SEARCH010/RV254 cohort who initiated ART during...
