Conference Highlights Digestive Disease Week
At the 2010 Digestive Disease Week (DDW), several presentations highlighted new approaches to the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The burden of HCV is rapidly increasing as those infected with the virus years ago are becoming symptomatic. New treatments may soon offer hope where standard treatments have been failing, but the cost is expected to soar. David R. Nelson, MD, Professor of Medicine, University of Florida, Gainesville, suggested that within a few years we could "cure 60% to 80% of HCV patients with these new treatments."
