Abstract

Hepatitis Registry was developed by the Hepatology Section of the Hungarian Gastroenterology Society with the contribution of the Foundation for Liver Patients. The main task was to register all interferon based treatments of chronic hepatitis C and B and to facilitate the preauthorization process. The registry helped to clarify the number and characteristics of hepatitis C patients waiting for triple therapy; 3000 previously failed patients are still eligible for protease inhibitor therapy, 40% of them already developed cirrhosis stage and 40% are null responders to the previous therapy. As a file is created for treatment authorization, the system counts automatically the Priority Index according to the calculation set in the guideline. Priority Index reflects the urgency of treatment. The most prominent parameter of the Index is the degree of fibrosis, but it also takes into account the progression rate, prognostic factors, and special situations. Orv. Hetil., 2013, 154, 1151-1155.
