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).
Impact of DAA Uptake in Controlling HCV Epidemic and Modeling Interventions for HCV Elimination Among HIV-infected Persons in San Diego
This is a retrospective and prospective study among people living with HIV (PLWH) that assesses hepatitis C (HCV) treatment uptake during periods before and after direct-acting antivirals (DAA) introduction, and its impact on the HCV epidemic among PLWH.

This study will enroll subjects who are at high risk for nonadherence (including active alcohol and/drug use, recent hospitalization for a psychiatric condition, previous nonadherence or missed clinic visits, or transportation issues). This study is evaluating the use of a digital medicines program to help sustain adherence and hopefully increase the chance of a cure. Study subjects will be compensated for their time in the study.

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.
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
