Advances in Hep-C Treatment Provide Incentive for Screening - Mercy Medical Center

The most common blood-borne viral infection in the United States, Hepatitis C (HCV), can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer. It impacts more than 4 million people, the vast majority “baby boomers,” those born 1945-1965, who are encouraged to undergo a simple HCV blood test as significant breakthroughs have been made recently to successfully treat this disease.
