BOF: 2.4

A 47-year-old male has been referred by his GP for investigation of abnormal liver function tests. He uses approximately 50 units of alcohol per week and is an intravenous drug abuser having picked up the habit when he was in prison for two years. He had just been released from prison. There were no past illnesses of note; in particular he had never received a blood transfusion or any blood products. On examination there were no stigmata of chronic liver disease and there was no hepatomegaly. Investigations revealed raised aminotransferases and he was anti-HCV antibody positive and HCV-RNA positive genotype 1.

In this patient the risk of progression of liver disease is not increased by:

a)      Age at which he acquired infection

b)      Alcohol consumption

c)      Male sex

d)      Continuing drug abuse

e)      Genotype 1
