Curing Hepatitis C Boosts Lymphoma Treatment Outcomes
« on: March 27, 2020, 05:03:55 pm »
Among those with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and lymphoma, curing the virus is associated with improved treatment outcomes for the blood cancer, Healio reports.

Sanjal H. Desai, MD, of Medstar Health in Baltimore, and colleagues conducted a study of 40 people with HCV and lymphoma, 22 of whom cleared the virus. Desai presented findings at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in Orlando this month.

Twenty-one (95%) of those who achieved clearance of HCV had an overall response to lymphoma treatment, meaning complete or partial cancer regression, compared with 11 (69%) of those who did not clear the virus. This meant that clearing the virus was associated with a 2.4-fold greater likelihood of having an overall response to lymphoma treatment. Sixteen (73%) of those with viral clearance and six (38%) of those without had a complete response to lymphoma treatment, making viral clearance associated with a 2.3-fold greater likelihood of complete response.
