Yes, Curing Hep C Is Tied to Better Health and Survival
« on: May 27, 2020, 10:51:01 am »
Countering experts who have doubted that curing hepatitis C virus (HCV) promotes better health and survival outcomes, a new study of more than 1,000 people has concluded that achieving a cure did in fact lower the risk of death and negative health outcomes, Healio reports.

Publishing their findings in Clinical Infectious Diseases, Jordan J. Feld, MD, MPH, of the University of Toronto Health Network, and colleagues analyzed data on people starting hep C treatment with interferon or direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) between June 2006 and December 2016.
