Prediction: Primary Care Physicians to Treat Hepatitis C Virus

FARMINGTON, Conn.--()--Primary care physicians will soon treat hepatitis C virus (HCV) patients predicts UAB Medicine’s Michael Saag, MD, Professor. BroadcastMed, Inc. and UAB Medicine present Dr. Saag’s review of the upcoming HCV treatment options for physicians on the UAB MD Learning Channel. With three to four million people in the US infected with HCV there are not enough hepatologists and infectious disease doctors to treat them. New drug therapies now make it possible for primary care physicians to manage the disease with a near 100% cure rate.
