Information About the Disease

Hepatitis C, like other forms of hepatitis, causes inflammation of the liver. The hepatitis C virus is transferred primarily through blood, and is more persistent than hepatitis A or B. High-risk groups are people who inject drugs, people who receive transfusions of unscreened blood, dialysis patients and people who have unprotected sex with multiple sex partners. Hepatitis C is also treated with antiviral medications.
