  • hepatitis
  • Infections in the United States result primarily from travel to another country where hepatitis A virus transmission is common, close personal contact with infected persons, sex among men who have sex with men, and behaviors associated with injection drug use ( 1 , 2 ) (see https://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/statistics/2015surveillance/index.htm ). (cdc.gov)
  • Direct-acting antiviral treatment is highly effective at curing hepatitis C in people who inject drugs and in people receiving opioid substitution therapy (OST), a systematic review and meta-analysis of 38 studies published in The Lancet Gastroenterology and Hepatology shows. (infohep.org)
  • Experts from Australia's leading hepatitis C research centre say that the findings of the review demonstrate that policies that deny hepatitis C treatment for people who use drugs are unacceptable. (infohep.org)
  • Despite a recommendation from the World Health Organization that people who use drugs should receive direct-acting antiviral treatment for hepatitis C, some countries do not provide treatment to active drug users and physicians often cite concern about adherence as a reason to deny treatment to active drug users. (infohep.org)
  • But elimination of hepatitis C in people who inject drugs is unlikely to be achieved unless the number of people with hepatitis C who share injecting equipment can be reduced. (infohep.org)
  • This can only be achieved by a combination of provision of sterile needles and injecting equipment to reduce sharing, OST to reduce injecting and direct-acting antiviral treatment to reduce the number of people who are able to transmit hepatitis C. (infohep.org)
  • I hope our research will encourage countries to overturn these policies and allow treatment to all people living with hepatitis C, regardless of current or previous drug use. (infohep.org)
  • Our data provides robust evidence to inform global clinical guidelines, and we hope it will improve public health policy for hepatitis C treatment for people who use drugs internationally. (infohep.org)

  • To investigate whether people who inject drugs have poorer responses to direct-acting antiviral treatment, researchers from the Kirby Institute searched for all studies which reported the outcomes of direct-acting antiviral treatment in cohorts that included current or recent drug users (within the previous 12 months), or people receiving OST. (infohep.org)
  • The review identified 38 studies with 3634 participants including five randomised clinical trials (634 participants) and five analyses of clinical trials conducted after the trial was completed to investigate responses in people who used drugs (517 participants). (infohep.org)
  • In fact, given high prevalence rates, people who inject drugs really should be prioritised for treatment. (infohep.org)
