DAVALOS MOSCOL, Milagros; TAGLE ARROSPIDE, Martín; PADILLA MACHACA, Martín  and  MONTES TEVES, Pedro. Peruvian experience in the treatment of chronic hepatites C with the new direct acting antiviral drugs. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.1, pp.45-54. ISSN 1022-5129.

Objective: The ideal therapy for chronic hepatitis C is the use of direct acting antivirals (DAA). In Peru there is no data in this aspect, in that sense it is necessary to report real life experience with these drugs. Material and methods: A digital survey was sent through e-mail to hepatologists, and the data of four is considered in this study. Statistical analysis was descriptive. Results: We included 63 patients, mean age was 59 years, 49.21% were male, cirrhosis was present in 49.21%, and 34.92% was non-responder to PEGIFN and Ribavirin. Genotype 1 was present in 93.65%, and subtype 1a was 58.73%, there were only 2 cases with Gt 2 and one with Gt 3. There were 10 different DAA combinations used, and the most effective were Sofosbuvir/ Ledipasvir, Sofosbuvir/Ledipasvir/Ribavirina and Sofosbuvir/Simeprevir, in all these cases the Sustained Viral Response (SVR) was 100%. The other combinations had SVR < 90% or only 1-2 patients included. All patients tolerated treatments and no serious adverse events occurred. Conclusions: In real life antiviral treatment for hepatitis C with AAD is effective and well tolerated. The best SVR was obtained with Sofosbuvir/Ledipasvir, Sofosbuvir/Ledipasvir/Ribavirina and Sofosbuvir/Simeprevir. This report may be useful to consider treatment strategies with focus in public health.
