Behandlung der Hepatitis C - eine Revolution steht bevor


Schärer, Verena; Bruggmann, Philip; Müllhaupt, Beat; Fehr, Jan (2014). Behandlung der Hepatitis C - eine Revolution steht bevor. Praxis, 103(19):1123-1131.

Abstract

Treatment of hepatitis C is approaching a revolution. During the last years, many agents have been developed that directly interfere with the viral replication cycle. Therapy of hepatitis C will no longer need Interferon in the future. The new therapies will be shorter, more efficient and with fewer side effects. For patients, the burden of treatment will drop substantially. Even patients are traditionally classified who as "difficult to treat", such as cirrhotic patients, HIV/hepatitis C coinfected patients and patients after liver transplantation will have better chances of cure. For more patients to benefit from the new therapies, identification of infected individuals and diagnostic investigations have to be improved.
