Subjects are being asked to take part in a research study to test two levels of alcohol services for patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) who drink alcohol. The two levels differ in intensity of alcohol services and in whether or not they include a focus on liver health. The study will look at which level of alcohol services best decreases alcohol use among patients with HCV.

The PROP UP study is a prospective, observational study that is evaluating patient-reported outcomes associated with the treatment of chronic hepatitis C infection and benefits of a viral cure. PROP UP is funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and the study is actively recruiting patients. The outcomes the study is evaluating are hepatitis C treatment-related side effects, adherence to the treatment medications, the cost that patients have to pay out-of-pocket, long-term benefits of cure, and the potential harms of treatment. The study is evaluating whether hepatitis C symptoms and patient functioning improve after treatment. Participants are reimbursed for their participation.
