"Hepatitis C virus and risk of extrahepatic malignancies: a case-control study."


This new article from China is of interest to me personally. I had Hep C for about 45 years. Took the 12-week cure of Harvoni+ribavirin in 2015. And midway through, I began to manifest full-blown severe lymphoma B symptoms (which I and my treatment team mistook for drug side effects). That proved to be the beginning of my symptomatic CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia). Previously I had no symptoms or abnormal blood work except for elevated liver enzymes due to the Hep C. So I went from Stage 0 to Stage 3-4 on my CLL in space of about 6 weeks of Hep C treatment!

From the article: "we observed a significant association between the chronic lymphoma leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) and HCV seropositivity in females in the research group aged 1-59 years old (OR = 14.69; 95% CI, 1.94-111.01). HCV infection had a potential association with CLL/SLL in females aged 1-59 years old."
