A Team-based Approach to Treating HCV in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease




There are now nearly than 800,000 patients in the United States on hemodialysis (HD). The prevalence of Hepatitis C is 5-times greater in these patients than in the general US population and represents an unmet medical need for your kidney patients. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has received an increased number of reports of newly acquired hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among patients undergoing hemodialysis and is now urging providers and facilities to initiate a number of new processes to reduce the incidence of HCV. This is a new and largely unknown area for many Nephrologists, Gastroenterologists, and Internists, but the impact of Hepatitis C infection on their patients include:
• Increased Risk of Cirrhosis
• Increased Incidence of Hepatocellular Cancer
• Increased Risk of Mortality
