Current Views on Hepatitis C Virus Infection

, : Current Views on Hepatitis C Virus Infection. Current Infectious Disease Reports 2(1): 55-60

Hepatitis C virus infection affects more than 4 million people in the United States and is a leading cause of liver failure necessitating transplantation. Effective combination therapies are now available for subgroups of patients at risk for progression to cirrhosis. The benefits of therapy in immunosuppressed hosts, such as HIV-infected patients and liver transplant recipients, are less well established.

In this study, the authors attempt to provide an account of the factors that affect the outcome of hydrocephaly in 26 foetuses. The hydrocephalus was related to a myelomeningocele in 35% of patients. Sixty-two percent of foetuses showed intrauteri...
