Core Tip Recently, it was demonstrated that dual oral therapy with daclatasvir and asunaprevir without pegylated-interferon/ribavirin was well tolerated and achieved high sustained virological response rates in Japanese patients with chronic hepatitis C virus genotype Ιb infection, including patients with liver cirrhosis (Child A stage). However, the efficacy and side effects of these drugs was previously studied in non-elderly patients (less than 70 years of age). Those in elderly patients, who are supposed to have higher incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma, have not been studied. We demonstrated that efficacy and side effects in elderly patients were nearly the same as in non-elderly patients.
