Hep C patients clear virus after 'transformative' treatment

Around 80 patients with the Hepatitis C virus who were seriously ill with advanced liver disease, have cleared the virus from their blood after receiving new treatment under an early access programme introduced in December.
Of the patients who received the treatment, 95% have been found to have no evidence of the Hepatitis C virus in their blood.
Dr Suzanne Norris, Professor of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, TCD and St James's Hospital described the results as "transformative".
