Does Vitamin D Improves Sustained Virologic Response (SVR) in Genotype 2,3 Chronic Hepatitis C Patients?
Does Vitamin D Supplement Improve SVR in Chronic Hepatitis C (Genotype 2,3) in naïve Patients Treated With Peginterferon Alpha and Ribavirin

Standard therapy for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) is (Peg/RBV) combination therapy obtaining sustained virologic response (SVR) in 80% of naïve patients with genotype 2,3. Studies rarely address the issues of improving host factors. The current study examines

  1. whether adding vitamin D, a potent immunomodulator, could improve viral response and shorten treatment duration (from 24 weeks to 12 weeks)
  2. whether Vitamin D levels predictes negative treatment outcome.

Standard therapy for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) is (Peg/RBV) combination therapy obtaining sustained virologic response (SVR) in 80% of naïve patients with genotype 2,3. Studies rarely address the issues of improving host factors. The current study examines whether adding vitamin D, a potent immunomodulator, could improve viral respons.The working hypothesis is that Adding vitamin D to conventional Peg/RBV therapy for naïve, genotype 2,3 patients with chronic HCV infection significantly improves RVR, EVR, and SVR
