Discovery of HepC
Jan 21, 2002

When did Michael Houghton discover Hepatitis C? How long has the medical industry known of Hepatitis C?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

He found it in the late 1980's, but the test was not standardized for blood banking effectively until June 1992. There was some testing for it in 1991, but it was not perfect. He is working hard on a vaccine for HCV now. DTD
