A Study Describing the Care Cascade and Effectiveness and Safety of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir in Adult Participants With Hepatitis C Virus in French Addiction Centers


Brief description of study

Hepatitis C Virus is liver disease and is a leading cause of death and morbidity with around 71 million people affected worldwide. Widespread availability of highly effective direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) have dramatically changed the treatment landscape of HCV with a cure rate of over 95%. In May 2019, French Health Authorities expanded prescription abilities to all physicians treating adult treatment-naive patients with HCV without cirrhosis of the liver. This study will assess the treatment uptake and barriers to treatment by non-HCV specialist in France in community-based addiction centers. Beyond these evaluations, data on health resource utilization in addiction centers, level of knowledge of both patients and providers on HCV infection and treatment, care cascade, effectiveness and safety of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir among patients treated in addiction centers and evolution of addiction behavior after treatment are of specific interest.

Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir is a drug approved to treat HCV. About 400 Adult participants with a confirmed positive HCV ribonucleic acid (RNA) test will be enrolled in the study at approximately 30 addiction centers in France.

All participants will attend an inclusion visit. Participants who are not prescribed Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir at the inclusion visit will have no further follow-up in the study. Participants who are prescribed Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir will take three tablets once daily. The duration of the study is approximately 12 months.

All study visits will occur during routine clinical practice but there may be a higher burden for participants prescribed Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir. These participants will be asked to complete questionnaires after each visit.
