Abstract

Screening of donated blood has eliminated a major transmission route for heparitis C, the accuracy of diagnostic tests has improved, and longer regimens of interferon have improved therapeutic response. Nevertheless, millions are infected, and other transmission routes remain open. Treatment is often unsuccessful, but it may ofter the only chech to slow destruction of the liver.
