Abstract Share this page

The treatment of hepatitis C virus infection has been advancing at breakneck speeds over the past few years. This article provides an update on the newest drugs available and those currently in development, including newer-generation protease inhibitors, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, and nonstructural component inhibitors. Also discussed in this article are the regimens developed and the genotypes they target. Treatment of cirrhotic patients and patients who have failed prior therapy is also addressed, as are special populations, such as patients with harder-to-treat genotypes, patients with HIV coinfection, patients who have undergone liver transplantation, and patients with chronic kidney disease. Future developments and economic considerations are also mentioned.
