DAA Treatment in Donor HCV-positive to Recipient HCV-negative Liver Transplant
This is a single center study for the donation of HCV-positive livers to HCV negative recipient patients, with preemptive, interventional treatment of Epclusa to prevent HCV transmission upon transplantation.

Approximately fifty HIV/HCV coinfected patients with decompensated liver disease will be enrolled in the study. Ten (up to twenty) subjects will be treated with FDC SOF/LDV (Harvoni) pre or post liver transplant and followed prospectively. Forty + subjects will be enrolled retrospectively with the intent to capture all patients who have been exposed to sofosbuvir based DAA therapies at participating sites since 1/2014, and to mirror the population being enrolled prospectively.
In the medical literature, there are case reports that Harvoni improves symptoms in patients with PCT. However, this has never been systematically tested. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to assess whether Harvoni alone is an effective therapy of active PCT in patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
The study is both qualitative and quantitative, gathering patient’s perceptions of HCV treatment benefits before and after HCV treatment by administering surveys and conducting in-depth qualitative patient interviews. The study seeks to understand all anticipated and actual benefits patients perceive before and after viral eradication.
A Single Arm, Open Label, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Glecaprevir (GLE)/Pibrentasvir (PIB) in Treatment Naïve Adults With Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Genotypes 1-6 Infection and Aspartate Aminotransferase to Platelet Ratio Index (APRI) ≤ 1 (a blood test)
Mavyret: A Phase 3b, single arm, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and to demonstrate the non-inferiority of the sustained virologic response 12 weeks post dosing (SVR12) rates of 8 weeks of treatment with the glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) combination regimen to the historical SVR12 rate of 12 weeks of treatment with the GLE/PIB in treatment-naïve adults with chronic HCV GT 1, 2, 4, 5, or 6 infection and compensated cirrhosis.
Trial of Simplified Treatment Monitoring for 8 Weeks Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients (SMART-C)
The aim of this study is to determine if treatment monitoring schedule for chronic HCV patients treated with glecaprevir (300mg)/pibrentasvir (120mg) can be simplified. There will be two arms – one arm will have two on-treatment clinic visits; the other arm will have no on-treatment clinic visits.
Effectiveness, Safety and Clinical Outcomes of Elbasvir/Grazoprevir: Results From a Spanish Real World Cohort
This is a multicentre, descriptive, observational and ambispective (also known as a historical prospective) study carried out in patients who are treated with Zepatier (Elbasvir/Grazoprevir) in hospitals that included their data in Hepa-C Registry (directed by the Spanish Association for the Study of the Liver and the Networked Biomedical Research Centre for Hepatic and Digestive Diseases).
This is a nonrandomized (participants may decide which drugs they want to take), multi-site, open-label trial to evaluate a novel two-drug combination regimen (uprifosbuvir (MK-3682) 450 mg + ruzasvir [RZR; MK-8408] 180 mg once daily [q.d.] for 12 weeks) in male and female treatment-naïve (TN taken once-a-day) or treatment-experienced (TE) participants with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection genotype (GT) GT1, GT2, GT3, GT4, GT5, or GT6 who have not previously received HCV direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy. Cirrhotic (C) and non-cirrhotic (NC) participants with and without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection will be enrolled.
