HCVguidelines.org — a website developed by the American Association of the Study for Liver Diseases and the Infectious Diseases Society of America to provide up-to-date guidance on the treatment of hepatitis C — has added to its guidance and resources for the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C.
New additions to the website include a primer on HCV resistance, guidance on treating people who have undergone kidney transplantation, and guidance on HCV in pregnant women and children. Additionally, the entire guidance has been updated to reflect recent approvals of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir and sofosbuvir/velpatasvir/voxilaprevir.
“HCVguidelines.org is a valuable resource for researchers, clinicians, health professionals and the broader hepatology and infectious disease communities,” say panel co-chairs Raymond T. Chung, MD; Arthur Y. Kim, MD; Susanna Naggie, MD; and Hugo E. Vargas, MD. “As new HCV therapies become available, and additional resources are needed to navigate diagnosis and treatment, our panel remains focused on ensuring complete, high-quality and timely guidance.”
