Session Name: Poster Session A: Liver Transplantation: Viral Hepatitis
Date: Saturday, May 2, 2015
Session Time: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Presentation Time: 5:30pm-7:30pm
Location: Exhibit Hall E
Background: Interferon (IFN) free HCV regimens are associated with better tolerability and efficacy. The majority of studies report biochemical and virological response; however limited information has been published on histologic findings. Aim: Report histologic findings following sustained virological response (SVR) in LT patients (pts). Methods: HCV treatment was started between 12/2013 and 5/2014 on pts who underwent LT between 1990 and 2014. Sofosbuvir (SOF) started in all 17 pts, 8 pts treated with SOF and Ribavirin (RBV), 2 pts SOF/RBV switched to SOF and Simeprevir (SIM), 6 pts treated with SOF/SIM and one with SOF/RBV/IFN (co-infection with HIV). All but 1 pt was on tacrolimus.
