Updated Hepatitis C Practice Guidelines Now Available from AASLD
Date:9/28/2011

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, September 26, 2011, the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases published online at its journal Hepatology's website (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/hep.24641/full) an update to its practice guidelines for hepatitis C – "An Update on Treatment of Genotype 1 Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection: 2011 Practice Guideline by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases." AASLD is the premiere organization for research and education in the area of liver disease. The authors of the update are Marc Ghany, David R. Nelson, Doris B. Strader, David L. Thomas, and Leonard B. Seeff, all of whom are thought leaders in the field of hepatology.

The guidelines are noteworthy because they address treatment of patients with hepatitis C using two recently FDA approved drugs – telaprevir and boceprevir. Both long-awaited drugs were approved by the FDA in May 2011, are direct acting antivirals (DAA), and improve cure rates for patients with hepatitis C genotype 1. In addition, both drugs are in the forefront of a wave of new drugs that will reach the market in the near future. According to AASLD President T. Jake Liang, MD, "The AASLD has been very proactive in modifying our HCV guidelines to reflect this change. Ever since we knew of the improved treatment response with the addition of DAAs, the AASLD Practice Guideline Committee has moved quickly to update the existing guideline. Just 4 months after the official approval of the first two DAAs, the updated guideline is available on the website of our journal Hepatology."

DAAs promise great hope, but AASLD has expedited the writing and review of its practice guideline because those drugs do require a level of expertise for practitioners if optimum outcomes can be reached. In addition, treatment schedules will be complex and different for each DA
