Objectives
Narrative objectives1 The aim of this study is assessment of the usefulness of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) in evaluation of liver fibrosis in hemodialysis patients with chronic hepatitis C (CH-C).
First, assessment of the evaluation of liver fibrosis is compared between histological diagnosis by liver biopsy and ARFI value in hemodialysis patients with CH-C.
Second, regular examination of liver fibrosis is conducted by ARFI and liver fibrosis marker.
Next, among patients without anti-viral therapy, progression rate of liver fibrosis and cumulative incidence of HCC are compared between CH-C patients with or without hemodialysis. Among patients with anti-viral therapy, the regression rate of liver fibrosis as anti-viral effect is compared between CH-C patients with or without hemodialysis.

Assessment
Primary outcomes - The accuracy of ARFI for evaluation of liver fibrosis in hemodialysis patients with chronic hepatitis C
- Comparison of the degree of liver fibrosis between hemodialysis patients with CH-C, non-hemodialysis patients with CH-C and hemodialysis patients without HCV infection
- Comparison for progression rate of fibrosis by ARFI between CH-C patients with or without hemodialysis
- Comparison for cumulative incidence of HCC by ARFI between CH-C patients with or without hemodialysis
- Investigating sustained virological response rate (the rate of undetectable HCV RNA at end of treatment and at 24 weeks after completion of treatment) of Peg-IFN alpha mono-therapy in CH-C patients with hemodialysis
- Comparison of regression rate of liver fibrosis and suppressive effect on HCC incidence of Peg-IFN alpha mono-therapy in CH-C patients with hemodialysis between CH-C patients with or without HD and HD patients without HCV infection

Other
Other related information - Among CH-C patients with or without hemodialysis CH-C who meet the selection criteria, liver biopsy, ARFI, fibrosis markers and imaging test are performed at the start of observation in order to evaluate the degree of liver fibrosis. Among hemodialysis patients without HCV infection, ARFI, fibrosis markers and imaging test are performed (Liver biopsy is not performed).
- CH-C patients with Hemodialysis are treated with pegylated interferon alpa 2a mono-therapy. CHC-patients without hemodialysis are treated with usual anti-viral therapy.
- Evaluation of the degree of liver fibrosis by ARFI and liver fibrosis markers is performed every 6 months after first evaluation. Surveillance of HCC are also performed at the same time.
