Understanding Hep C Treatment
The goal of hep C treatment is to achieve a Sustained Virologic Response – meaning absence of the virus for six months or longer following therapy completion. Patients who fail to take their full regimen of medications exactly as their physician prescribes are at risk of therapy failure and long-term consequences including liver cancer and cirrhosis. Additionally, undergoing only a partial regimen may make future therapies less effective.
