a Chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages: 1 = normal (eGFR >90 mL/min); 2 = mild CKD (eGFR 60-89 mL/min); 3 = moderate CKD (eGFR 30-59 mL/min); 4 = severe CKD (eGFR 15-29 mL/min); 5 = end-stage CKD (eGFR <15 mL/min)
b A dose adjustment in ribavirin may be required in patients with CKD stage 3; see package insert for details.

 

Recommended regimens listed by evidence level and alphabetically for:

Patients With CKD Stagea 4 or 5 (eGFR <30 mL/min or End-Stage Renal Disease)

RECOMMENDED GENOTYPE DURATION RATING

b Dosing is 3 coformulated tablets (glecaprevir [100 mg]/pibrentasvir [40 mg]) taken once daily. Please refer to the prescribing information.​
c Patients in this group should be treated as would patients without CKD. Duration of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir should be based on presence of cirrhosis and prior treatment experience (please refer to appropriate section). As such, strength of rating may be lower for certain subgroups.
