Hepatitis C will become a rare disease in 22 years, study predicts

5 agosto 2014

Effective new drugs and screening would make hepatitis C a rare disease by 2036, according to a computer simulation. «Hepatitis C (HCV) is the leading cause of liver cancer and accounts for more than 15,000 deaths in the U.S. each year,» said a corresponding author on the study. «If we can improve access to treatment and incorporate more aggressive screening guidelines, we can reduce the number of chronic HCV cases, prevent more cases of liver cancer and reduce liver-related deaths.»
