Abstract BACKGROUND & AIMS: Our study was designed to test the association between insulin resistance (IR) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes, serum HCV RNA level and liver fibrosis stage in a large prospective cohort of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients. METHODS: Six hundred consecutive patients (CHC, n = 500; chronic hepatitis B (CHB), n = 100) were evaluated on the day of liver biopsy. IR (Homeostasis Model for Assessment of Insulin Resistance) and all components of the metabolic syndrome were assessed. By logistic regression, independent factors associated with IR and those associated with significant fibrosis were assessed in nondiabetic and noncirrhotic CHC, respectively. Parameters of IR were compared between hepatitis B and 240 CHC matched by epidemiologic, metabolic, and histologic features. RESULTS: IR was present in 32.4\% of the 462 nondiabetic CHC and associated with the metabolic syndrome, genotypes 1 and 4, significant fibrosis, and severe steatosis. IR was diagnosed in 15\% of 145 CHC without metabolic syndrome or significant fibrosis, and associated with genotypes 1 and 4, high serum HCV RNA level, and moderate-severe necroinflammation. Significant fibrosis was present in 51.1\% of the 454 noncirrhotic CHC patients and associated with male sex, age >40 years, IR, moderate-severe necroinflammation, and severe steatosis. IR was less frequent in CHB than in matched CHC (5\% vs 35\%, respectively, P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: IR is a specific feature of CHC, associated with genotypes 1 and 4 and high serum HCV RNA level. Significant fibrosis is associated with IR independent from steatosis. This article was published in Gastroenterology and referenced in Journal of Nutrition & Food Sciences
