Abstract

Hepatitis C virus infects 20-40% of the end-stage renal disease population, and has been associated with essential mixed cryoglobulinemia and several forms of immune-complex glomerulonephritis. Overall, treatment with interferon alpha has been disappointing, although certain situations may benefit from dosing regimens that differ in the amount of drug and duration of treatment from the conventional interferon doses currently recommended for non-renal patients.
