The Virahep-C study was conducted as a cooperative agreement funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases with cofunding from the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities and a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with Roche Laboratories. The specific grant numbers and membership of the Virahep-C Study Group are provided in the primary publication of the study (reference 4). Funding for additional lipid profile analyses using stored serum samples was obtained for an ancillary study of the pathogenesis of steatosis and insulin resistance in chronic hepatitis C virus infection (KL2 RR024154-02 to L.
