Insulin resistance seems not to impact SVR to PEGIFN/RBV/PI (Berg 2011, Serfaty 2010) whereas low-density lipoprotein (LDL) was associated with SVR (at least for TLV) (Berg 2011). On the other hand new parameters seem to be more important, such as HCV subtype 1a and 1b. Patients with HCV G1a have a higher risk of developing resistance during PI-based therapy compared to HCV G1b because HCV G1a requires an exchange of only one nucleotide versus two for HCV G1b in position 155 to develop resistance (reviewed in Sarrazin and Zeuzem 2010b).

For example, TLV increases levels of tacrolimus by approximately 70-fold (Garg 2011). Outlook Treatment of chronic hepatitis C is one of the success stories of modern medicine. In the first interferon trials published in 1989, interferon α three times a week achieved sustained virological responses in only a few patients. In 2011, treatment is successful in up to 80% of selected patient populations. Many issues remain to be addressed, though. Treatment is costly and not readily available for patients in areas where hepatitis C prevalence is high.

Classifications of non-response include null response, partialresponse, relapse, and breakthrough. Retreatment of HCV G1 patients with relapse after PEGIFN/RBV Retreatment with PEG-IFN/RBV of relapse patients after IFN- or PEG-IFN-based combination therapy with ribavirin resulted in an SVR of 24-34% (Bacon 2011, Poynard 2009, Zeuzem 2011). 4). Relapse patients are the ideal patients for retreatment with a triple therapy regimen. Patients have already proven to respond to PEG-IFN and RBV. Thus, the backbone to prevent PI resistance is effective and a lead-in strategy may not be as important as in other situations.
