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.
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.

A Study to Evaluate the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Efficacy of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir in Pediatric Subjects With Genotypes 1-6 Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection (DORA)
An open-label study to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK), safety, and efficacy of glecaprevir (GLE)/pibrentasvir (PIB) (Mavyret) in pediatric (children) participants divided into 4 age groups: 3 to < 6, 6 to < 9, 9 to < 12, and 12 to < 18 years of age. Within each age group, some participants will be enrolled for intensive pharmacokinetics (IPK) to characterize the PK of a particular age group and the remainder of participants will be enrolled for the evaluation of safety and efficacy of each age group. Intensive PK sampling is designed to allow for dose adjustment, based on available PK and clinical data to achieve therapeutic exposures that have been safe and efficacious in adults.

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.
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.
