HCV Research UK is a national cohort of over 11,000 patients enrolled between 2012 and 2014 from 60 centres within the UK with evidence of hepatitis C virus infection. All patients have enrolled with written informed consent, which allows storage of routinely collected clinical data in a linked-anonymised database, and have donated biological samples to a biorepository (held in Glasgow).
The purpose of HCV Research UK is to act as a resource to support research into a range of aspects of HCV infection.
Applications for access to data and/or samples may be made through the HCV Research UK Tissue and Data Access Committee through completion of an on-line application form.
