Researchers followed nearly 10,000 people with hepatitis C, some of whom were treated with direct-acting antivirals.
Scientists have firmly established an association between direct-acting antiviral treatment and a lower risk of liver cancer and death.
Researchers compared liver-related death rates among Mexicans, Puerto Ricans and Cubans.
Opioid overdoses kill more Americans than car crashes, drowning, fire, and falls.
One researcher argues that the pharmaceutical industry ought to pay greater heed to such risks during drug development.
Treating hep C lowers the risk.
A speedy overview of the major scientific findings presented at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam (AIDS 2018)
That is compared with people who have hep C who had other types of insurance coverage.
This is according to an analysis of nearly 5,000 Italians recently treated for the virus.
This is according to a recent mathematical modeling study.
Being coinfected with hepatitis C and having a higher HIV viral load are also associated with such a risk according to a recent study.
Increased risk of death for people with hepatitis C who use alcohol, smoke cigarettes, use drugs , eat poorly, and don’t exercise.
This is according to an analysis of a large group of people who did not have advanced liver disease.
And can treating the virus reduce the risk of chronic kidney and cardiovascular diseases as well as the risk of death from such causes?
Other factors linked to a reduced risk of death include a hep C cure, less advanced liver disease, not smoking and well treated HIV.
Among those with hep C, factors such as smoking and unhealthy diets are responsible for perhaps half their excess mortality risk.
