Hep C prevention
Jun 15, 2000

How do I prevent myself from getting hep C? I am 30 year old HIV-positive gay man, taking anti-viral therapy, very healthy, and do not need to put another disease on my plate, if it can be prevented. Thanks

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Milk Thistle effectiveness and Lamivudine as monotherapy
