I am infected by Hepa C with 2,000 counts, is it contageous? Do it has a cure?
| Response from Dr. McGovern
Yes HCV can be cured. In the setting of acute infection, we usually follow a few HCV RNA levels to see if the virus is clearing by itself. If not, early treatment usually leads to cure. If a chronic patient undergoes therapy, there is still a good chance of cure. That chance varies by genotype, since some are easier to treat than others.
