[Low-levels of HBsAg quantification at 48-week in HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients are the advantageous population for HBsAg clearance].

To analyze the therapeutic effect on HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients treated with Peg-IFNα-2a combined with NAs to obtain the influencing factors for predicting HBsAg clearance. A retrospective study was conducted to investigate the effect of pegylated interferon alpha-2a combined with nucleoside analogues (lamivudine/adefovir dipivoxil) on HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B. The treatment course was 96 weeks. Patients were followed up 120 weeks after the treatment. HBsAg clearance at 120 weeks was taken as the objective of the study. Logistic regression and receiver operating characteristic curve analysis screened the related factors affecting HBsAg clearance. (2) test was used to compare count data. 111 patients were treated with pegylated interferon alpha-2a combined with nucleoside analogues, and 107 patients completed the scheduled course of treatment and follow-up. HBsAg clearance rate at120 week was 29.0% (31/107). The influencing factors for analysis were: (1) gender had no effect on HBsAg clearance rate; age and baseline levels of HBV DNA and alanine aminotransferase had no significant effect on HBsAg clearance; low baseline level of HBsAg (< 3.023 lgIU/ml) was beneficial to HBsAg clearance. The area under the working characteristic curve of the subjects was 0.746, the positive predictive value was 44.4%, and the negative predictive value was 86.8%. (2) HBsAg quantification or decline in 24 weeks and 48 weeks of treatment had a good predictive effect on HBsAg clearance, and the 48 weeks predicted value was higher than 24 weeks. When the HBsAg quantification was≤2.070 lgIU/ml at 48 weeks, the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.931, the positive predictive value was 52.8%, and the negative predictive value was 94.4%. When HBsAg decreased from baseline to≥0.991 lgIU/ml, the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.888, the positive predictive value was 50.8%, and the negative predictive value was 97.9%. (3) The analysis of HBsAg subgroup levels at 48 weeks suggested that the "interval analysis" can forecast HBsAg clearance more exactly than "nodal analysis" .The final HBsAg clearance rate of 100 IU/ml < HBsAg≤1 000 IU/ml, 10 IU/ml < HBsAg≤100 IU/ml and HBsAg≤10 IU/ml groups reached 6.7%, 31.8% and 67.7%, respectively. (4) The ALT abnormal group in the course of treatment obtained a higher HBsAg clearance rate (48.0%, 12/25). 96-weeks long-term treatment with pegylated interferon-alpha -alpha-2a combined with nucleoside analogues for HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B has a good predictive value for HBsAg clearance at baseline and during treatment. The "interval level" of HBsAg at 48-weeks is more accurate in predicting HBsAg clearance, suggesting that HBeAg-negative chronic hepatitis B patients with low HBsAg levels at 48-weeks are the advantageous populations with HBsAg clearance. These patients are worthy of prolonged treatment to pursue "clinical cure".

Treatment of Elderly Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C: A Retrospective Cohort Study.

The prevalence of chronic hepatitis C increases in elderly patients. The aims of this study were to identify the factors associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and end-stage liver disease development and to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pegylated interferon (PEG-IFNα) plus ribavirin (RBV) therapy in elderly patients. A retrospective cohort study included all consecutive pa-tients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection treated with PEG-IFNα+RBV between 2003 and 2013. Elderly patients had a higher frequency of poor prognostic factors including genotype 1 infec-tion, high fibrosis, and high fibrosis index based on four factors (FIB-4) score. The sustained virologic response (SVR) rate for genotype 1 was significantly lower (35.8% vs. 57.1%), while the frequency of PEG-IFNα (27.2% vs. 7.8%), RBV dose reduction (19.6% vs. 9.7%) and treatment discontinuation (13.0% vs. 4.1%) was significantly higher in elderly patients. However, age was not associated with SVR in multivariate analysis, and comparable SVR rates were achieved when adjusted for fibrosis score (Ishak ≤3: 66.7% vs. 69.8%). During the follow-up, HCC was diagnosed in 18 elderly patients (3 SVR+, 4 SVR- and 9 untreated patients). In conclusion, selected elderly patients can achieve comparable SVR rates as younger patients, but with a higher rate of side effects. Since complications of HCV infection occur more frequently in elderly patients, they should be given priority for antiviral therapy.

Serum miRNAs Predicting Sustained HBs Antigen Reduction 48 Weeks after Pegylated Interferon Therapy in HBe Antigen-Negative Patients.

The therapeutic goal for hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is HBs antigen (HBsAg) seroclearance, which is achieved through 48-week pegylated interferon (Peg-IFN) therapy. This study aimed to identify predictive biomarkers for sustained HBsAg reduction by analyzing serum microRNAs. Twenty-two consecutive chronic HBV infection patients negative for HBe antigen (HBeAg) with HBV-DNA levels <5 log copies/mL, alanine aminotransferase (ALT) <100 U/L, and compensated liver functions, were enrolled. The patients were subcutaneously injected with Peg-IFNα-2a weekly for 48 weeks (treatment period), followed by the 48-week observation period. HBsAg 1-log drop relative to baseline levels recorded at the end of the observation period was considered effective. Sera were obtained at weeks 0 and 24 during the treatment period analyzed for microRNAs. The microRNA (miRNA) antiviral activity was evaluated in vitro using Huh7/sodium taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (NTCP) cells. As a result, six patients achieved the HBsAg 1-log drop after the observation periods. Comparison of serum microRNA levels demonstrated that high miR-6126 levels at week 24 predicted HBsAg 1-log drop. Furthermore, miR-6126 reduced HBsAg in culture medium supernatants and intracellular HBV-DNA quantities in Huh7/NTCP cells. In conclusion, high serum miR-6126 levels during Peg-IFN therapy predicted the HBsAg 1-log drop 48 weeks after the completion of therapy. In vitro assays revealed that miR-6126 was able to suppress HBsAg production and HBV replication.

[Changes and clinical significance of γδT cells in peripheral blood of patients with chronic hepatitis B during pegylated interferon α-2a treatment].

To observe the changes of γδT cells in the peripheral blood of patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) during pegylated interferon α-2a treatment, and to analyze the correlation between clinical indicators and curative effects. Peripheral blood of hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)-positive CHB patients were collected at different time points of Peg-IFNα-2a treatment, including 17 patients at 0 weeks, 20 patients at 12 weeks, 20 patients at 24 weeks, and 16 patients at 48 weeks. From these 11 patients, blood samples were frequently observed at 0, 12, 24, and 48 weeks of treatment. The frequencies of γδT and its subpopulation cells Vδ1T, Vδ2T, effector memory γδT (γδTem), central memory γδT (γδTcm), initial γδT (γδTnaive) and terminal differentiation effect γδT (γδTeff) cells in peripheral blood were detected by flow cytometry. Liver function, serum HBV markers and HBV DNA levels were measured simultaneously. SPSS 23.0 statistical software was used to analyze the differences in cell proportions at each treatment time point, and the correlation between cell proportions and alanine aminotransferase (ALT), HBsAg, HBeAg or HBV DNA levels. In addition, the correlation between the proportions of γδT and its subpopulation cells and the response to Peg-IFNα-2a treatment in the 11 patients with continuous follow-up were analyzed. The percentage of γδT and Vδ2T cells in peripheral blood of patients with CHB decreased gradually during the period of 0-48 weeks of Peg-IFNα-2a treatment. The percentages of γδT cells and Vδ2T cells at 48 weeks were 6.89% (5%, 8.15%), 4.61% (2.16%, 6.50%), respectively; significantly lower than the 0 week [12.5% ​​(7.73%, 19%), 6.59% (3.86%, 13.62%)], the differences were statistically significant ( < 0.05). The proportions of Vδ1T, γδTem, γδTcm, γδTnaive, or γδTeff subpopulations were not statistically different at each time points (all > 0.05). At the same time, the levels of ALT, HBsAg, HBeAg or HBV DNA were positively correlated with the ratio of γδT or Vδ2T cells ( < 0.05). Among the 11 patients with continuous followed- up, the proportion of γδTem cells in responders was significantly lower than that of non-responders at each time points, and the difference was statistically significant ( < 0.05). There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups (all > 0.05). The proportion of γδT cells in the course of CHB treatment with Peg-IFNα-2a reduces the liver inflammation by decreasing the replication of HBV virus. Chronic hepatitis B patients with a lower proportion of effector memory (γδTem) cells may be more likely to get better response with Peg-IFNα-2a.

Effectiveness of Sofosbuvir, Ribavirin and PEG-IFNα-2a in the Treatment of Naïve Egyptian Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Genotype 4.

Egypt is one of the largest epidemic areas of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the world. Its prevalent genotype is 4 with a majority of subtype 4a. In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration approved a new direct-acting antiviral drug (sofosbuvir) to treat patients with chronic HCV infection. In Egypt, the patients are already being treated with sofosbuvir in conjunction with ribavirin and pegylated interferon alfa-2a (PEG-IFNα-2a) for 12 weeks since 2015. The present study was planned to explain the efficacy of this treatment regimen against the HCV genotype 4a in Egyptian patients and its pretreatment predictive factors of virological response.

[Optimal treatment regimen for patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B after suboptimal response to 24 weeks of Peg-IFN α-2a].

To investigate the optimal treatment regimen for patients with HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B (CHB) after suboptimal response to 24 weeks of pegylated interferon (Peg-IFN) α-2a. A total of 188 patients with HBeAg-positive CHB who had suboptimal response to 24 weeks of Peg-IFN α-2a were randomly divided into entecavir group ( = 93) and telbivudine group ( = 95). The two groups received entecavir 0.5 mg/d and telbivudine 0.6 g/d, respectively, for 208 weeks. After 208 weeks of treatment, the following indices were assessed: HBeAg clearance rate and seroconversion rate, hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA clearance rate (HBV DNA < 500 IU/ml), safety, and drug resistance rate. The data were subjected to intention-to-treat (ITT) analysis and per protocol (PP) analysis. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed for the drugs used and baseline characteristics in patients with or without HBeAg seroconversion, and stratification analysis was performed based on the baseline HBeAg level. Six cases in the entecavir group and four cases in the telbivudine group did not complete the treatment. Sequential entecavir and telbivudine were well tolerated and safe for all patients. There was a significant difference in HBV DNA clearance rate at 52 weeks of treatment between the entecavir group and the telbivudine group (ITT analysis: 93.55% [87/93] vs 77.89% [74/95], (2) = 9.363, = 0.002; PP analysis: 93.10% [81/87] vs 76.92% [70/91], (2) = 9.049, = 0.003). The suppression rates of HBV DNA at 208 weeks of treatment were 95.70% (89/93) vs 92.63% (88/95) (ITT analysis) and 95.40% (83/87) vs 92.31% (84/91) (PP analysis). There was a significant difference in HBeAg seroconversion rate at 208 weeks of treatment between the entecavir group and the telbivudine group (ITT analysis: 38.71% [36/93] vs 62.11% [59/95], (2) = 10.290, = 0.001; PP analysis: 41.38% [36/87] vs 64.84% [59/91], (2) = 9.833, = 0.002). Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses suggested that sequential use of telbivudine, male sex, and the baseline level of HBeAg were significantly associated with HBeAg seroconversion at 208 weeks of treatment ( = 0.003, hazard ratio [HR] = 0.386; = 0.009, = 0.303; = 0.001, = 3.502). For patients with HBeAg-positive CHB after suboptimal response to 24 weeks of Peg-IFNα-2a, sequential use of telbivudine is the optimal treatment regimen according to the baseline level of HBeAg (baseline guidance). The incidence of HBeAg seroconversion during 208 weeks of sequential treatment can be significantly increased according to the HBeAg decline curve in early treatment (24 weeks) and 104 weeks (response guidance).
