REVIEW
A Majumdar, M T Kitson, S K Roberts
BACKGROUND: The burden of HCV cirrhosis is high and projected to increase significantly over the next decade. While interferon therapy is problematic in HCV cirrhosis, the era of direct-acting anti-viral (DAA) therapy provides effective treatment for patients with cirrhosis. AIM: To systematically review the results of DAA therapy to date in patients with HCV cirrhosis, and highlight the ongoing challenges for DAA therapy in this population. METHODS: A structured Medline search was conducted to obtain phase II and III HCV trials in patients with cirrhosis...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Liesl M Hagan, Mark S Sulkowski, Raymond F Schinazi
UNLABELLED: Treatment guidance for chronic hepatitis C (CHC) released by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) offers two options for interferon (IFN)-ineligible/intolerant individuals with genotype 1 infection: sofosbuvir/ribavirin (SOF/RBV) for 24 weeks or sofosbuvir/simeprevir (SOF/SMV) for 12 weeks. A 24-week course of SOF/RBV costs approximately US$169,000, with sustained virologic response (SVR) rates ranging from 52% to 84%; 12 weeks of SOF/SMV costs approximately $150,000, with SVR between 89% and 100%...

REVIEW
David L McCollum
The Infectious Diseases Society of America Annual Meeting serves as a time of expert review of the year's most important innovations. Important new information on HIV infection incidence was discussed. The remarkable efficacy of "treatment as prevention" in the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) 052 study and the proper place of oral preexposure prophylaxis were among the important prevention topics. Key engagement-in-care research indicates that only 19% of HIV-infected persons in the United States have a plasma HIV RNA level below the limits of assay detection...

Despite advances in therapy, hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection remains an important global health issue. It is estimated that a significant part of the world population is chronically infected with the virus, and many of those affected may develop cirrhosis or liver cancer. The virus shows considerable variability, a characteristic that directly interferes with disease treatment. The response to treatment varies according to HCV genotype and subtype. The continuous generation of variants (quasispecies) allows the virus to escape control by antivirals...
