    Abstract

    Ever since direct-acting antiviral agents (DAA) have been approved and released into the world, numerous studies on the efficacy, adverse effects and drug-drug interactions of interferon-free DAA combination therapy have been studied and published. With all oral DAA therapy showing sustained virological response rate of 80-90% with minimal adverse events, HCV eradication has now become a realistic goal. DAA combination treatments were approved and adapted to practice in Korea in 2015, and Korean Association for the Study of the Liver (KASL) has revised the guideline based on the systematic approach that reflects evidence-based medicine and expert opinions. In this article, new recommendations for treatment of chronic HCV genotype 2 and 3 infected patients will be introduced base on KASL practice guidelines for management of hepatitis C that has been updated in 2015.
