Efficacy of sofosbuvir and ledipasvir in an HCV+ gastro-resected patient

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

What is known and objective: The second-generation direct-acting antivirals represented the first major turning point for the eradication of HCV infection in almost all settings of patients. However, no data were available on use in gastro-resected patients. Case description: We report on a gastrectomized patient with chronic hepatitis C infection. She was treated with sofosbuvir and ledipasvir (SOF/LDV) for 12 weeks, with measurement of blood levels of the drugs. She obtained sustained virological response at week 12 and 24 without dose adjustment. What is new and conclusion: This case report can provide information useful for clinical practice in this set of patients and can open new perspectives in evaluating actual SOF/LDV bioavailability.
