Treatment of HCV in special populations


 

EXPERT ANALYSIS FROM GUILD 2018


Still, as the AASLD/IDSA guidelines point out, ledipasvir/sofosbuvir is not a recommended option for HCV treatment in end-stage renal disease.

“In general, I think glecapravir/pibrentasvir [Mavyret] has become the go-to drug for patients who have renal dysfunction because it’s a pangenic regimen, it doesn’t require use of sofosbuvir, and there’s no dose adjustment. But I would say you could encounter situations where you might want to use sofosbuvir, and for me that situation is typically those direct-acting, antiviral-experienced patients who have failed other therapies and you really need to use sofosbuvir/velpatasvir/voxilaprevir [Vosevi] as your last or rescue therapy,” the hepatologist continued.
