Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection: Looking Beyond the Interferon Alfa Era

Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection: Looking Beyond the Interferon Alfa Era

New York, NY - June 25, 2013

Sorry folks, I am a bit late bringing this to you.

In June over at the IAS–USA website an interactive and highly enjoyable question and answer course was launched. The easy to follow activity is offered in both an audio and webcast format.

Hepatitis C patients taking part in the CME are given an opportunity to learn more about the virus, disease progression, treatment regimens and side effects - to name a few. For instance in this presentation by Kenneth E. Sherman, MD, PhD: HCV is a LIVER Disease, the in-depth "question and answer" lecture discusses non-invasive methods for the assessment of liver fibrosis, biopsy,  liver fibrosis, and cirrhosis with an emphasis on HCV as a liver disease.

Listen to the audio below, and Watch the Webcast here. After clicking on the webcast, scroll to the bottom of the page, click on “I have read these instructions and understand them,” to begin activity. All course topics are provided below, view all webcasts at the IAS–USA website.

The good news - no registration required!
