- Twice Daily Telaprevir in Combination with Peginterferon Alfa-2a/Ribavirin in HCV Genotype 1 Liver Transplant Recipients: Interim Safety/Efficacy of the REFRESH Study
- Safety and Efficacy of Peginterferon-α2a Plus Ribavirin Treatment in Renal Transplant Recipients with Chronic Hepatitis C; Prospective Cohort Study
The safety and efficacy of direct-acting antivirals (DAA) for HCV post-LT remain unknown. METHODS: We describe the safety and efficacy of all oral DAA-therapy for genotype-1 recurrent HCV post-LT in the prospectively enrolled multicenter HCV-TARGET consortium treated from 12/2013 to 11/2014. RESULTS: 155 genotype 1 subjects started treatment. The Safety Cohort(n=117) reached an end-of-treatment time point, & the Efficacy Cohort(n=80) reached a known virological outcome. All patients were treated interferon free with sofosbuvir (SOF) + simeprevir (SMV) w/ or w/o ribavirin (RBV). Most subjects were older( 60 yo) men(74%) with recurrent cirrhosis (63%). 57% failed prior antiviral therapy. 14 patients also had a renal transplant. Immunosuppression included tacrolimus (79%), cyclosporine (10%), & mTOR (15%). At least one AE was reported in 80% of patients. Most AEs were mild, & most commonly included fatigue, headache, & anemia. Patients treated w/ vs w/o RBV more commonly experienced anemia(37.5% vs 3%). SAEs occurred in 13.7% of patients, including 3 deaths. One episode of liver allograft rejection was reported. Overall SVR4 was 86%. CONCLUSION: Despite the presence of recurrent cirrhosis & prior treatment failure in more than half of this real-world prospectively enrolled multicenter observational cohort, SVR4 rates with all oral SOF+SMV+/-RBV were high(86%) & tolerability was excellent in genotype 1 post-LT patients. Updated SVR rates will be presented.
