About

In this study, individuals without hepatitis C infection who are on the kidney transplant waitlist will receive a kidney from a deceased donor with hepatitis C infection and will be treated for hepatitis C at the same time. Treatment will include glecaprevir 300 mg / pibrentasvir 120 mg (G-P) administered on-call to the operating room for the renal transplant procedure and continued for 4 weeks post-renal transplant.

Full description

In this study, individuals without hepatitis C infection who are on the kidney transplant waitlist will receive a kidney from a deceased donor with hepatitis C infection and will be treated for hepatitis C at the same time. Treatment will include glecaprevir 300 mg / pibrentasvir 120 mg (G-P) administered on-call to the operating room for the renal transplant procedure and continued for 4 weeks post-renal transplant. The participant will continue to be tested for Hepatitis C for 12 weeks post-treatment. The primary hypothesis is that prophylactic treatment with glecaprevir/pibrentasvir before and after transplant will prevent the establishment of HCV infection in the recipients of kidneys from HCV-infected deceased donors. Based on the success of preliminary studies, the objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 4 weeks of G-P as prophylaxis for HCV D+/R- kidney transplant.
