CHSU Professor and Student Co-Author Hepatitis C Review Article Published in MedCrave

 

Alireza FakhriRavari, PharmD, AAHIVP, Assistant Professor of Clinical Sciences at CHSU, and Lauren Park, a 4th year College of Pharmacy student at CHSU, co-authored a review article which was published in MedCrave’s Gastroenterology & Hepatology: Open Access titled, “Sofosbuvir-Velpatasvir-Voxilaprevir for Chronic Hepatitis C – A Review”.

According to the article, hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection affects as many as 185 million people worldwide. The abstract explains how interferon-free therapy has become the more preferred practice since the appearance of new direct-acting agents, but is only effective in patients with special cases if performed for a minimum of 12 weeks. The remaining article provides evidence and a summary regarding the treatment of HCV with a new combination therapy called Vosevi.

Lauren Park is from Los Angeles, and graduated from the University of Southern California in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in English. She chose a career in pharmacy because of her interest in the healthcare field and the myriad of opportunities available to pharmacists. Coming into CHSU, she didn’t imagine pursuing research before working with Dr. FakhriRavari. Now she is planning on applying for a residency.

When asked why she enjoys being a student as CHSU, Lauren emphasized, “spending time and studying with other students, being a TA, and extracurricular activities.” Some of these activities include being an active member of both Phi Delta Chi, California Pharmacists Association, and Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society.

Dr. FakhriRavari currently teaches Patient Care I & IV, Evidence-Based Medicine, and Viral Infections at CHSU. He received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry at the University of Houston, and his Doctor of Pharmacy at the Texas A&M Rangel College of Pharmacy. He is affiliated with American College of Clinical Pharmacy, American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists, Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society, American Pharmacists Association, and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity.

CHSU applauds Lauren Park and Dr. FakhriRavari for their collaborative accomplishment. We love seeing professors and students working together to expand their research skills and are proud of the powerful impact they will make in the health care industry.
