Hi to everyone, just a video about Hep C explaining what the virus is and how it operates. In this vid it says "HepatitisC can be cured" - I suppose they sound very optimistic as it was created by Vertex Pharmaceuticals, the company who are just about to launch 'Teleprevir', the latest drug for the war on HCV.
There is no doubt that this drug, and 'Boceprevir' that is also about to be launched, represent a huge leap forward in the fight against this terrible virus that affects 4 times as many people in the world than Aids and for so many people who are infected, they have no idea that they have it until it becomes a life threatening illness. What it doesn't say is that even with these new drugs, there is still no definitive cure...
take care everyone... Ian
