New lines of research in children are necessary to assess long-term clinical outcomes, to develop noninvasive methods for detecting fibrosis, to establish gene polymorphisms related to disease progression and response to therapy and to identify individuals at risk for significant side effects before treatment initiation. Trials with combined therapy plus antivirals should begin as soon as safety profiles have been established in adult patients.
