JohnPattersonHepatitis C Virus (HCV) is a small virus that causes acute and chronic infections of the liver which may lead to serious consequences if not taken care of. It spreads through infected blood transfusions and poorly sterilized medical equipments. HCV can be classified into six major genotypes, with many additional subtypes within each genotype. While genotype 1 (GT1) causes almost half of HCV infections, all six major genotypes (GT1-6) are prevalent worldwide. The genetic diversity of HCV strains, even within the same host, originates from the low fidelity of the ribonucleic acid (RNA) polymerase, and is thought to account for viral resistance when HCV is treated with a single drug. During the last few years, the hepatitis C treatment landscape has experienced successive waves of revolutionary change, and is now dominated by high-performance regimens comprising a new generation direct acting antivirals (DAAs).
