This prospective, multicenter, observational cohort study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of peginterferon alfa (e.g. Pegasys) plus ribavirin and treatment regimens containing direct-acting antivirals in patients with chronic hepatitis C who are treatment-naïve or treatment-experienced and HIV HCV co-infected. Data will be collected from patients receiving treatment according to current Summary of Product Characteristics and local labeling for the duration of their treatment and a 24-week follow-up.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Sustained virological response rate, defined as percentage of patients with HCV RNA <50 IU/mL at 24 weeks past completion of treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Virological response (in correlation with on-treatment factors) [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of patients treated according to label / Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Treatment discontinuation (time, reasons) [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sustained virological response in correlation with dose reductions/treatment interruptions [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Treatment (drugs, regimen) in relation to medical history/concomitant medical conditions [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of viral rebound on DAA based triple therapy [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: approximately 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
