Keywords Hepatitis C virus; Chronic kidney disease; End-stage renal disease; Anti-hepatitis C virus therapy; Cohort study
Core Tip This large nationwide retrospective cohort study used propensity score-matched and competing risk analyses to evaluate the long-term hard endpoints of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and anti-HCV therapy, especially interferon-based therapy, in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We found that untreated HCV infection in CKD was associated with increased risks of end-stage renal disease and mortality. On the contrary, adequate anti-HCV therapy in CKD patients improves long-term renal and patient survivals.
