Abstract
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) play a key role in the eradication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. However, limited data are available on DAA for treating HCV infection in hemodialysis (HD) patients. This study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetic characteristics and effectiveness of daclatasvir/sofosbuvir (DAC/SOF) and ledipasvir/SOF (LDV/SOF) in HD patients.
METHODS: Seven patients were given SOF coadministered with DAC or LDV once daily for 12 weeks. The plasma concentrations of SOF007, DAC, and LDV were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
RESULTS: A sustained virologic response in week 12 (SVR12) was achieved in 6 (100%) patients, except for 1 patient dying due to severe cerebral hemorrhage not related to antiviral therapy. The extraction ratio of SOF007 was 66.67%, and the estimated HD clearance of SOF007 was 5.65 L/h.
CONCLUSION: The combination of SOF with either DAC or LDV is well tolerated and offers high SVR12 in HD patients.
