Abstract:

Early discontinuation of antiviral therapy is common. Use of growth factors was the strongest independent predictor of treatment retention before 24 weeks and should be evaluated prospectively. Early interventions may also be warranted for other risk factors for early discontinuation, such as pre-existing substance use, depression, cirrhosis, or diabetes.
