Side effects included pruritus and anaemia, leading to the application of erythropoietin. Abbreviations: ALT, alanine aminotransferase; EOT, end-of-treatment; Hb, haemoglobin; HCV-RNA, hepatitis C virus-ribonucleic acid; PLT, platelets; SVR, sustained virological response; Tacr, tacrolimus; w, week; WBC, white blood cells.
