Hepatitis C 101

Hepatitis C 101

Hepatitis C is a curable disease caused by the bloodborne hepatitis C virus (HCV), which infects the liver. Infants and young women are more likely to clear hepatitis C spontaneously; people living with HIV are less likely to do so. Hepatitis C is not transmitted by casual contact, such as coughing, kissing, sneezing or sharing food, beverages or utensils. Supportive care for acute hepatitis C includes bed rest, drinking plenty of fluids and over-the-counter medications to manage symptoms. The advent of DAAs has revolutionized the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. (See Hepatitis C Treatment.)
