Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) recurrence after liver transplantation is universal and leads to chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. Combined interferon and ribavirin therapy represents the accepted treatment for recurrent chronic hepatitis C following liver transplantation, according to the literature. Our aim was to assess the efficacy and safety of the recommended combined interferon and ribavirin therapy, and evaluation of the rate of long-term remission under Hungarian circumstances.
