Hep C

Hep C can be cured

Chronic hep C can be cured with treatments called direct acting antivirals (DAAs). Being cured means the hep C virus is not detectable in your blood months after treatment has ended.

DAAs are the current standard of care and considered safe and effective.
Before 2013, hep C treatments involved the use of medications with generally low rates of cure, long duration, and substantial side effects.

For people with chronic hep C, treatments have changed over time. Compared to interferon-containing regimens, current treatments have fewer side effects and are more effective with cure rates over 95%.
