Hepatitis C affects some 3 to 5 million people in the United States, and 170 million worldwide. Without treatment, many infected with the virus eventually develop chronic liver disease, with some progressing to permanent liver damage, liver cancer and death. Late last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved two direct antiviral agents – sofosbuvir and simeprevir – that are bioengineered to shut down #hepatitis C virus replication. Combined with more traditional hepatitis treatment drugs, the new regimens move toward getting rid of injections altogether, eliminating the debilitating side effects in some patients and at least reducing the total duration of treatment for others. #hepc #livercancer

Please budget extra time to reach your UC Davis health appointments in Sacramento from late April to late June. A major Caltrans highway project may cause traffic delays of an hour or more. Info: fix50.com
