Researchers followed nearly 10,000 people with hepatitis C, some of whom were treated with direct-acting antivirals.
Scientists have firmly established an association between direct-acting antiviral treatment and a lower risk of liver cancer and death.
Indicators of liver health improved at the same rate among those with cirrhosis who were cured of hep C regardless of their HIV status.
Better antiretrovirals have likely mitigated HIV’s effects on the risk of end-stage liver disease and liver cancer in those with hep C.
Caring for someone with cirrhosis is hard work and much harder when there is hepatic encephalopathy.
Liver disease such as viral hepatitis and other liver conditions can cause damage to the liver which can range from mild to severe.
This is according to an analysis of nearly 5,000 Italians recently treated for the virus.
A European liver transplant registry saw a decline in hep C as a cause of needing a transplant.
A recent study analyzed health outcomes among those with decompensated cirrhosis treated with Sovaldi-based regimens.
Use of drugs like Nexium or Prilosec is tied to progression to cirrhosis, decompensated cirrhosis and liver cancer in this population.
Highlights from research presented at the 52nd International Liver Congress in Amsterdam
Those coinfected with hepatitis C and HIV who have advanced fibrosis should receive hep C therapy, because of the risk of developing liver dec...

People with cirrhosis who are cured of hepatitis C have significantly lowered risk of liver decompensation, liver cancer and death.
Even a partial response to hepatitis C virus (HCV) therapy confers significant health benefits to people coinfected with both HIV and HCV, tho...
