Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)
Hepatitis C is a viral infectious disease which causes inflammation of a liver, often leading to its serious damages. The virus of hepatitis C extends through the infected blood.
Until recently treatment of hepatitis C demanded weekly injections and intake of oral drugs which many people infected with a virus could not use because of other problems with health or serious side effects.
Today the situation changed – drugs of new generation are developed, and with their help chronic hepatitis C gives in to therapy.
Nevertheless about a half of people with hepatitis C do not suspect that are infected as often the disease proceeds asymptomatically.
