Trial of Simplified Treatment Monitoring for 8 Weeks Glecaprevir/ Pibrentasvir (Mayret) in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients (SMART-C)
Data has shown that direct-acting antiviral (DAA) regimen of glecaprevir (300mg)/pibrentasvir (120mg), a protease inhibitor and NS5A inhibitor respectively, provides key features for HCV treatment simplification.
Eligible participants (naïve pre-cirrhosis chronic HCV patients) will be randomized (1:2) to the standard or simplified monitoring arm and will receive treatment for 8 weeks.
One post-treatment visit will be conducted 12 weeks after the final dose of study medication to evaluate the proportion of patients with undetectable HCV RNA at this time point (SVR12).
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.

DAA Treatment in Donor HCV-positive to Recipient HCV-negative Heart Transplant
This is a proof of concept, single center study for the donation of HCV-positive hearts to HCV negative recipient patients, with preemptive, interventional treatment with 12 weeks of commercially available DAA therapy to prevent HCV transmission upon transplantation.
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.
The study will enroll well-compensated cirrhotic as well as non-cirrhotic subjects treatment experienced with an NS5a Inhibitor + sofosbuvir and will include patients who did not complete the prescribed duration due to adverse event or any reason other than for non/poor compliance. Subjects will be randomized to 12 or 16 weeks of treatment.
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.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a brief, computerized behavioral intervention for promoting screening for hepatitis C and reducing risky behavior for people who inject drugs (PWID).
This study is a phase IV, open-label, single arm, multicentre study whose aim is to assess whether interferon-free and ribavirin-free Direct Acting Antiviral (DAA) Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) therapy with grazoprevir/elbasvir, will be feasible for the treatment of People who inject drugs (PWID) with recent injecting drug use and chronic HCV genotype 1 or 4 infection.
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.
