Grasela, Pharm.D., Ph.D. For the AI444040 Study Group: Daclatasvir plus Sofosbuvir for Previously Treated or Untreated Chronic HCV Infection Persistent infection with hepatitis C virus affects approximately 170 million people worldwide and is a significant reason behind cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.1,2 HCV-related morbidity and mortality are increasing; since 2007, HCV-related deaths in the United States have got exceeded those from individual immunodeficiency virus contamination.3,4 HCV is classified into six major genotypes.5,6 Genotypes 1, 2, and 3 are found worldwide, with subtype 1a predominating in the usa and subtype 1b predominating in European countries, Japan, and China.9,10 Adding telaprevir or boceprevir has been shown to improve the response in patients with genotype 1 infection.11,12 However, the addition of telaprevir or boceprevir is bound to HCV genotype 1 and is connected with adverse events, complicated dose regimens, and viral resistance.Baseline features and those recorded during follow-up were compared among groups with the use of the two-sample t-check, the analysis-of-variance F-check, or the Pearson chi-square test.). Overall, carriers were younger than noncarriers and had an increased reported rate of having a first-level relative with dementia . However, adjustment for the current presence of a first-level relative with dementia did not significantly alter the results for any of the measures.
