Hepatitis C Cure Linked to Lower Risk of Liver, Cardiovascular Death

Hepatitis C Cure Linked to Lower Risk of Liver, Cardiovascular Death

Attaining a sustained virological response following antiviral therapy for hepatitis C was associated with a lower risk of death from liver-related or cardiovascular causes, according to findings published in the Journal of Viral Hepatitis. Even among people with advanced liver disease, direct-acting antiviral therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV) has a high cure rate, but successful treatment may not fully reverse existing liver damage. Further, SVR was linked to a lower risk of liver-related death as well as cardiovascular mortality, irrespective of cirrhosis status.
