    Hepatitis Patients Respond Equally Well to Short Course Treatment
    September 15, 2011 - The hepatitis C virus is a leading cause of liver disease, sickening nearly 200 million people worldwide. Now, researchers report they can cure the chronic infection in a majority of cases with a shorter course of anti-viral drugs.
