Abstract

Our data suggest that chronic HCV infection is associated with hypocholesterolemia and hypotriglyceridemia, which can be reversed by successful eradication of HCV. The clinical significance of hypolipidemia reversal among SVR patients, such as the risk of coronary artery or cerebral vascular disease, should be further investigated.
