Hepatitis C Virus Infection Associated With an Increased Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis: A Population-Based Cohort Study
Abstract: The association between the hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke has been previously investigated. However, the association between the HCV infection and the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) has not been extensively discussed. Using the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000 (LHID2000), we selected 3686 patients with newly diagnosed HCV infection. We randomly selected 14,744 people with no HCV or hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection as comparison group and frequency matched them with patients with HCV infection according to their age, sex, and index year.

Relation Between Hepatitis C Virus Exposure and Risk of Osteoporosis: A Nationwide Population-Based Study
Abstract: The effect of hepatitis C virus (HCV) exposure on bone mineral density without advanced liver disease remains debated. Thus, we assessed the relation between HCV exposure and the risk of osteoporosis. From 2000 to 2011, patients aged>20 years with HCV exposure were identified from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000. Of the 51,535 sampled patients, 41,228 and 10,307 patients were categorized as the comparison and the HCV exposure cohorts, respectively. The overall incidence of osteoporosis in the HCV exposure cohort was higher than in the comparison cohort (8.27 vs 6.19 per 1000 person-years; crude ha...
