Includes a new chapter on long-acting pegylated interferons -- the cuting-edge discovery that is sure to be the next generation of treatment.

Since its original publication in 1998, Living with Hepatitis C: A Survivor's Guide has become the resource for hundreds of thousands of American afflicted with the deadly virus -- and for their husbands, wives, families and friends. Unlike other books on the topic, Living with Hepatitis C is written by a nationally recognized hepatitis C expert and his patient. So readers everywhere receive the advice and expertise on one of the country's top hepatologists while gaining invaluable insight and guidance from a patient who has been through it all.

This newly revised third edition reviews the results of the latest clinical trials of long-acting, pegylated interferons in a new chapter. It updates all of the organizations, resources, and information that has changed since the last edition. It offers special chapters on research trends, liver transplants (including living-donor transplants), children, co-infection with HIV/AIDS or hepatitis B, as well as chapters devoted to the nutritional, emotional, and financial challenges that accompany infection with hepatitis C.
