Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis. Most people are asymptomatic, but for the majority of patients who become infected with hepatitis C, it becomes a long-term, chronic infection. The best way to prevent hepatitis C is by avoiding behaviors that can spread the disease, especially injection drug use, as there is no vaccine for HCV. With the forefront of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) agents, people can now be cured from HCV infection.
