Feasibility of all-oral anti-HCV treatment during DHAP chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation for T-cell lymphoma

New Microbiol. 2018 Jul;41(3):242-245. Epub 2018 Apr 5.


The role of anti-HCV direct-acting agents (DAAs) is well described in HCV-related lymphoproliferative disorders, whereas few data are available on their use in other malignancies, such as aggressive T-cell lymphomas requiring autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). We describe two oncologic cirrhotic patients treated with DAAs who underwent ASCT achieving cure for both diseases. Co-administration of sofosbuvir with cisplatin led an unexpected severe kidney impairment that did not resolve 30 weeks after drug exposure. The optimal timing of DAA administration in the ASCT setting has yet to be defined: our experience shows that co-administration is feasible, but requires close monitoring for adverse events.
