Is hepatitis c 100% cureable or is there a chance you could affect other people.
Response from Dr. McGovern
PEgylated interferon and ribavirin are effective in many people, but not in everyone. That is why there is great excitement about the development of new drugs for hepatitis C that will most certainly increase the number of people who are cured. These drugs will hopefully be available in about 3 to 5 years.
