- Investigator: Shimul Shah
- Type of Study: Observational/Survey
Hepatitis C Virus is the most common cause of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) in the United States. Liver transplant offers a curative treatment option for early stage HCC meeting Milan criteria. With the emergence of direct acting antivirals (DAAs) there has been improvement in associated morbidity and mortality due to high rates of sustained virologic response. The optimal timing of DAA administration in patients with HCC remains unknown. The goal of our study is to conduct a multi-institutional retrospective review to assess the optimal timing of DAAs for patients with associated HCC who underwent liver transplantation between January 1,2014 - December 31, 2019.
