In a breakthrough publication, leading hepatologist and hepatitis C expert Gregory Everson, M.D. provides state-of-the-science information to guide patients through the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C. Until recently, hepatitis C was considered incurable. "Curing Hepatitis C" outlines the new treatment protocols that offer the outcome of complete cure from this disease.

"Curing Hepatitis C" provides an indispensable and comprehensive overview for the nearly 160 million people worldwide and 4 million Americans diagnosed with hepatitis C. Perhaps most importantly, "Curing Hepatitis C" provides hope.

Author's Statement
“Hedy Weinberg and I wrote five editions of 'Living with Hepatitis C: A Survivor’s Guide' for the purpose of providing patients and caregivers a resource that could serve as an authoritative readily-available resource. I provided the medical information and Hedy provided the patient perspective by interviewing many patients with HCV to provide a personal connection for the reader. In this new book, I have focused on issues and questions related to the current new standard of treatment, Triple Therapy, and the exciting emerging therapies. As treatment continues to improve, eradication of HCV infection will become increasingly common – the new paradigm will be living without, not with, hepatitis C. Perhaps I am overly optimistic, but I believe that it is entirely possible that the emerging treatments will be so potent and effective that nearly every patient with chronic hepatitis C may be cured by future antiviral therapies!”
