The presence of pre-existing hepatitis C virus (HCV) resistance-associated substitutions (RASs) could attenuate viral susceptibility to direct-acting antiviral agents. The aim of this study was to better understand the differences among HCV RASs over time. We compared the prevalence and characteristics of naturally occurring HCV RASs in the NS3, NS5A, and NS5B genes between 2008 and 2016 in Chinese patients chronically infected with HCV genotypes (GT) 1b, 2a, 3a, 3b, and 6a.
