8.6.2 Auditable outcome Proportion of patients diagnosed with HCV/HIV receiving a baseline fibrosis stage assessment 8.7 Antiviral treatment:
genotype 1 8.7.1 Recommendations 90. We recommend where there is a current clinical need for treatment (i.e., Metavir F4/cirrhosis), or if the patient wishes to be treated, the standard of care should be with triple therapy consisting of pegylated interferon, ribavirin, and either telaprevir or boceprevir (1C). 91. We recommend 48 weeks of total treatment with a telaprevir- or boceprevir-based regimen for patients who do not have cirrhosis (1C). 8.7.2 Good practice points 92. We recommend all patients should have the option of treatment, and have the pros and cons of opting for initiation of treatment and of deferring treatment discussed with them. 93. We recommend a total of 48 weeks of treatment in patients with cirrhosis buy INCB018424 and for those who do not achieve an RVR. 94. We suggest non-cirrhotic patients who were previously null responders, partial responders or who experienced breakthrough should, wherever possible, wait for the availability of interferon-sparing regimens or interferon-based regimens
LDE225 datasheet including at least two new agents. 95. We recommend that all patients with advanced or decompensated cirrhosis being treated with triple therapy are managed in a tertiary centre. 96. We suggest for patients with genotype 1 infection and non-cirrhotic disease, there is the option to defer treatment until
newer funded therapies or a suitable clinical trial become available. Where deferred, close monitoring should take place with hepatic elastography or alternative non-invasive testing at least annually. Where there is confirmed progression of fibrosis, treatment initiation should be reconsidered. 8.7.3 Auditable outcomes Proportion of patients treated Histamine H2 receptor for genotype 1 outside of clinical trials receiving triple therapy with telaprevir or boceprevir with pegylated interferon and ribavirin Proportion of patients treated for genotype 1 with cirrhosis who are offered treatment with telaprevir or boceprevir with pegylated interferon and ribavirin unless contraindicated Proportion of patients not receiving therapy who undergo repeat non-invasive staging of liver disease within 1 year 8.8 Antiviral treatment: genotypes 2 and 3 8.8.1 Recommendations 97. We recommend where there is a current clinical need for treatment (i.e., Metavir F4/cirrhosis), or if the patient wishes to be treated, the standard of care should be with pegylated interferon and ribavirin (1C). 98. We recommend where patients receive pegylated interferon and ribavirin, the duration of treatment should be 48 weeks unless RVR is achieved, when treatment should be shortened to 24 weeks if the individual is non-cirrhotic (1C). 8.8.2 Good practice points 99.
