Answer

Patients with HCV infection should be monitored closely for adverse effects as well as response to therapy. Tests to help monitor drug toxicity include the following:

  • Complete blood cell count with differential
  • Renal function testing
  • Liver function tests (including alanine aminotransferase [ALT] level)
  • Thyrotropin level
