New Facts on Chronic Hepatitis C

Recently, a new report indicates that more patients are dying from complications of hepatitis C than the HIV virus. The key message is early awareness and testing, discussion of treatment options, and the hope for a cure. Preventing cirrhosis, liver cancer, and the need for liver transplantation is most important.

We have produced this video outlining the facts and opportunities for treatment and research studies at Liver Specialists of Texas.

    hello dr. galati- you seem passionate about us who are dealing with digestive diseases.

    i am HCV geno 1 & post Tx w/ SOC (2 times) cleared both times, then relapsed.

    i can not take INF anymore as i had drastic reactions both times i took tx.
    i wish i could come to houston to meet you guys- i do have a meeting with dr. L. in SA as he is close and seems to be very involved.
    i am praying that some of the new non- INF PI’s might prove the final answer for me.

    although i am currently in decent health, i am on a mission to get rid of the virus.
    do you have any advice for me? i am 59 and ready to rock!
    if i don’t think the SA bunch is the right way for me, may i contact you?
