As per available reports about 55 journals,27 Conferences, 17 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Hepatitis C Virus and about 163292 articles are being published on the current trends in Hepatitis C Virus. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to industry management are being carried out. As reported in Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is a small (50 nm in size) enveloped positive sense single-stranded RNA virus. The genome consists of a single open reading frame that is 9600 nucleotide (9.6 kb) bases long. It is the only known member of the Hepacivirus genus in the family Flaviviridae. Sequence analysis of HCV isolates around the world has revealed the presence of six major genotypes, labeled 1 through 6, and subtypes, labeled a through r. Worldwide, about 200 million people (3% of the world’s population) are infected with HCV, and 3 to 4 million people are newly infected each year with a global 170 million chronic carriers at risk of developing liver cirrhosis and/or liver cancer. Approximately 4.1 to 5.2 million people in the United States have chronic HCV infection. Hence, HCV infections account for a substantial proportion of liver diseases worldwide.
