Core Tip Direct acting antivirals have changed the landscape of managing hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, but there is limited data on the full safety profile of these drugs. We studied a group of liver transplant recipients with recurrent HCV who had hepatic decompensation and/or serious adverse events while on treatment with sofosbuvir-based regimens. We found that cases had lower pre-treatment hemoglobin, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and higher pre-treatment serum total bilirubin levels compared to controls. Anemia was the most common event and 62% of cases required blood transfusion. Similar to registration trials, sofosbuvir was generally well-tolerated, while ribavirin-induced anemia remains a challenge.
