How do you cure Hepatitis
Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis A resolves on its own and does not cause chronic disease.
Treatment with interferon and ribavirin can cure hepatitis C. In hepatitis B, treatment usually leads to viral suppression and improvement of liver disease, but we don't usually use the word "cure".
