Abstract

Background. Although end of treatment virological responses are similar in posttransplant patients with recurrent chronic hepatitis C virus infection and nontransplant patients, the sustained virological response rate is lower in the posttransplant setting. We investigated the efficacy of a longer duration (3 years) of therapy.
