OBJECTIVE Defining relevant risk factors for IFN-alpha-induced depression is essential in order to identify prophylactic treatment(More)
UNLABELLED Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United-States. The aim of the study was to describe serum immune profiles associated with acute DILI, to investigate whether there are profiles associated with clinical features or types of DILI and/or with prognosis, and to assess temporal changes in levels.(More)
UNLABELLED Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection with advanced cirrhosis or post-liver transplantation recurrence represents a high unmet medical need with no approved therapies effective across all HCV genotypes. The open-label ALLY-1 study assessed the safety and efficacy of a 60-mg once-daily dosage of daclatasvir (pan-genotypic NS5A inhibitor) in(More)
This study evaluated the influence of cognitive reserve on neuropsychological test performance in 198 patients infected with the hepatitis C virus.

Liver biopsy may contribute to diagnostic accuracy, but the histological features of DILI and their relationship to biochemical parameters and outcomes are not well defined. We have classified the pathological pattern of liver injury and systematically evaluated(More)
