Have you seen the commercials with baby boomers encouraging testing for hepatitis C and wondered what's this all about?
|In the TED-X VIDEO (below) “The discovery of the hepatitis C virus in 1989 and 25 years of has led to new treatments that can now cure almost all patients with hepatitis C and have the ability to reach almost 200 million people globally. Nezam H. Afdhal, MD, discusses how the discovery of the virus leads to understanding the global epidemiology and modes of spread of hepatitis C and the recognition that it was the commonest cause of cirrhosis, liver cancer and need for liver transplantation. The development of model systems to look at viral replication led to treatments initially with injectable interferon with low cure rates and poor patient tolerability to new all-oral direct acting anti-viral agents which can cure patients with a simple, safe and effective 8 to 12-week treatment. Finally, Dr. Afdhal discusses how these treatments have changed the discussion in the US on the cost of new medications and the ongoing plans to bring these expensive treatments to developing countries with high hepatitis C burden.”|
Discovery of Hepatitis C Virus. The Hepatitis C virus was discovered by scientists at CDC, NIH, and industry. Following the discovery, the Hepatitis C virus was identified as the cause of nearly all cases of non-A, non-B Hepatitis in the United States.Aug 22, 2014
|The breakthrough understanding of hepatitis came in 1963 when Dr. Baruch Blumberg discovered an antigen that detected the presence of hepatitis B (HBV) in blood samples. At the time, Dr Blumberg was actually researching the genetics of disease susceptibility.||Lucinda K. Porter, RN, author of "Free from Hepatitis C: Your Complete Guide to Healing Hepatitis C" has hepatitis C. Since 1998, the former Stanford University nurse, has worked with hepatitis C patients and is devoted to education and advocacy for those affected by this disease.
