Keywords Chronic hepatitis C; Hepatitis C virus replication; Directly acting antivirals; Staging; Hepatitis C virus infection
Core Tip The second and third wave directly acting antivirals introduced in 2013-2014 enhanced the efficacy and tolerability of anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment. Consequently, the traditional indicators for disease management and predictors of treatment response should be revised in light of these new therapeutic options. This review article analyzes the modern use of the markers of HCV infection in: (1) the diagnosis of acute hepatitis C; (2) the diagnosis of chronic HCV infection; (3) the assessment of the severity of chronic hepatitis C; (4) the assessment of factors associated with response to anti-viral treatment; and (5) HCV-RNA kinetics and clearance as markers of remission.
