Association between hepatitis C virus and chronic kidney disease: heterogeneity begets heterogeneity

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Epidemiologic studies examining the association between hepatitis C virus and chronic kidney disease have yielded conflicting findings. Analyzing data from a Taiwanese cohort, Lai and colleagues report a novel finding that the odds of chronic kidney disease were nearly 3-fold higher in hepatitis C virus–infected persons with genotype 2 compared with genotype 1. Hepatitis C virus genotype distributions differ in regions around the world. Can genotypic differences in chronic kidney disease risk explain some of the heterogeneity in prior studies?
