This is how hepa-titis C is treated and even cured forever
 
03:30
This is how hepa-titis C is treated (and even cured forever) Hepa-titis C is a serious liver disease that can lead to liver cancer, liver failure or even death. But fortunately, not only can hepatitis C be treated, but it can be cured. These days, people with hepatitis C have options when it comes to their treatment, including pills that are easier to take and far more effective than past injections. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) spreads through contact with infected blood, such as shared needles or syringes (can not be obtained from casual contact with an infected person). Up to 25% of individuals who get the virus have an acute, or short-lived, the infection that is eliminated by the body without treatment. The remaining 75% to 85% of cases, up to 4 million people in the United States, develop chronic hepatitis C, which means the virus persists for six months or more. For people with chronic hepatitis C, getting treatment as soon as possible can help shorten the life expectancy of the disease and, hopefully, clear the infection in a matter of weeks. "With the regimens that exist now, there may be only one pill with few side effects and cure rates of more than 95%, closing at 98% to 99%," says Eugene Schiff, MD, professor of medicine and director of Schiff Center for Liver Diseases at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Everything you need to know about hepatitis C The number of drugs that treat hepatitis C has increased in recent years. The first treatment options for hepatitis C were a combination of pegylated interferon and ribavirin. However, they were accompanied by unpleasant side effects and were effective less than half the time, says Ryan Westergaard, MD, assistant professor of medicine at the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Interferon also had to be injected. Today's drugs have fewer side effects and are better at fighting the virus. Before deciding on a treatment, your doctor will consider the genotype (strain) of your hepatitis C. Treatment for hepatitis C is now based on drugs called direct-acting antivirals (AADs), which prevent the virus from reproducing. Examples of DAAs, which come in pill form, are Elysium (simeprevir); Sovaldi (sofosbuvir), which is used in combination with Elysium; Daklinza (daclatasvir); Y Harvoni (a mix of Ledipasvir and sofosbuvir). In 2016, the FDA approved EPC USA, a combination of sofosbuvir and another drug, vel patas Vir, to treat all genotypes of hepatitis C. What's more, newer treatments usually clear the virus in a matter of weeks. The earlier you start, the better, though even those who already have liver damage can benefit. "It will not fix your liver, [but] it will cure them of the virus that is doing ongoing liver damage," says Dr. Westergaard. "It's burning the fire even though the house is still burning." Lifestyle strategies are also necessary, especially in the advanced stages of liver disease. This includes eating a healthy diet, exercising and avoiding alcohol and illicit drugs that can further damage the liver.

Hepatitis C virus
 
05:18
Hepatitis C virus Hepatitis C is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that primarily affects the liver.[1] During the initial infection people often have mild or no symptoms. Occasionally a fever, dark urine, abdominal pain, and yellow tinged skin occurs. The virus persists in the liver in about 75% to 85% of those initially infected. Early on chronic infection typically has no symptoms. Over many years however, it often leads to liver disease and occasionally cirrhosis. In some cases, those with cirrhosis will develop complications such as liver failure, liver cancer, or esophageal and gastric varices. HCV is spread primarily by blood-to-blood contact associated with intravenous drug use, poorly sterilized medical equipment, needlestick injuries in healthcare, and transfusions. Using blood screening, the risk from a transfusion is less than one per two million. It may also be spread from an infected mother to her baby during birth. It is not spread by superficial contact. It is one of five known hepatitis viruses: A, B, C, D, and E. Diagnosis is by blood testing to look for either antibodies to the virus or its RNA. Testing is recommended in all people who are at risk. There is no vaccine against hepatitis C.[2][6] Prevention includes harm reduction efforts among people who use intravenous drugs and testing donated blood.[4] Chronic infection can be cured about 90% of the time with treatments that include the medications sofosbuvir or simeprevir.[2][4] Previous to this a combination of peginterferon and ribavirin was used which had a cure rate around 50% and greater side effects. Getting access to the newer treatments however can be expensive. Those who develop cirrhosis or liver cancer may require a liver transplant. Hepatitis C is the leading reason for liver transplantation, though the virus usually recurs after transplantation. An estimated 130–200 million people worldwide are infected with hepatitis C. In 2013 about 11 million new cases occurred. It occurs most commonly in Africa and Central and East Asia.About 343,000 deaths due to liver cancer and 358,000 deaths due to cirrhosis occurred in 2013 due to hepatitis C. The existence of hepatitis C – originally identifiable only as a type of non-A non-B hepatitis – was suggested in the 1970s and proven in 1989. Hepatitis C infects only humans and chimpanzees.

Autoininjector for Pegylated Interferon Plegridy)
 
03:21
ENS 2013 - Barcelona Spain, June 9, 2013 Safety, tolerability and patient evaluation of peginterferon beta-1a administered via a single-use autoinjector in relapsing multiple sclerosis: data from the Phase 3b ATTAIN sub-study S. Hung, A. Deykin, A. Seddighzadeh, S. Liu, B. Sperling, P. Calabresi (Cambridge, Baltimore, US) Objectives: An autoinjector could simplify self-injection of polyethylene glycol-interferon beta-1a (peginterferon beta-1a) from a prefilled syringe (PFS). Simplification of the injection process may reduce the burden of administering a long-term therapy, as required in the management of chronic and debilitating conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), thereby potentially improving patient quality of life and compliance. The objective of this sub-study was to evaluate safety, tolerability, ease-of-use, and patient satisfaction with a single-use autoinjector administering peginterferon beta-1a in a subset of relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS) patients participating in ATTAIN, a long-term extension study involving patients who completed 96 weeks of the pivotal Phase 3 ADVANCE trial. Methods: ATTAIN is a multicentre, dose-frequency blinded extension study of the randomised, multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled ADVANCE study investigating peginterferon beta-1a 125 µg given every 2 or 4 weeks. In the 8-week ATTAIN sub-study, a subset of patients, self-administered peginterferon beta-1a (125 µg) or placebo subcutaneously every 2 weeks; the first 2 injections used the manual PFS and the next 2 injections used the single-use peginterferon beta-1a or placebo autoinjector. Patients were trained in the proper use of the autoinjector prior to the first injection; they were not blinded to device. Primary endpoints of the sub-study were incidence of adverse events associated with use of the autoinjector, patient assessment of injection pain score (via a Visual Analog Scale), and clinician assessment of injection site reactions. Additional endpoints included patient assessment of ease-of-use and satisfaction with the autoinjector and evaluation of autoinjector training materials (via questionnaire). Results: A total of 39 patients were involved in this sub-study. Data from this study are currently being analysed and will be presented. Conclusion: Results will help to establish the safety and tolerability profiles of peginterferon beta-1a administered via autoinjector in MS patients, and evaluate patient perceptions of the injection process using the autoinjector.

Daclatasvir 60 mg (Virodacla tablet)
 
01:27
Daclatasvir is a medication used in combination with other medications to treat hepatitis C. The other medications used in combination include sofosbuvir, ribavirin, and interferon, vary depending on the virus type and whether the person has cirrhosis. Daclatasvir is a potent and specific inhibitor of the HCV NS5A replication complex. The HCV NS5A is a multifunctional protein with key functions in HCV replication and modulation of cellular signaling pathways. Daclatasvir is indicated in combination with Sofosbuvir for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in adults. The recommended dose of Daclatasvir is 60 mg once daily, to be taken orally with or without meals. Daclatasvir must be administered in combination with other medicinal products. HCV-monoinfected or HCV HIV coinfected patients with chronic hepatitis C without cirrhosis, including treatment-naïve patients and patients who failed on a treatment based on Peginterferon alfa & Ribavirin All genotypes: Daclatasvir + Sofosbuvir for 12 weeks HCV-monoinfected or HCV HIV coinfected patients with chronic hepatitis C with compensated (Child-Pugh A) cirrhosis, including treatment-naïve patients and patients who failed on a treatment based on Peginterferon alfa & Ribavirin Genotype 1,4,5,6: Daclatasvir + Sofosbuvir for 24 weeks or Daclatasvir + Sofosbuvir + Ribavirin for 12 weeks Genotype 2: Daclatasvir + Sofosbuvir for 12 weeks Genotype 3 : Daclatasvir + Sofosbuvir + Ribavirin for 24 weeks The dose of Ribavirin, when combined with Daclatasvir Side Effects: Daclatasvir in combination with Sofosbuvir Fatigue, headache, nausea Daclatasvir in combination with Peginterferon alfa and Ribavirin The most frequently reported adverse reactions were fatigue, headache, pruritus, insomnia, influenza-like illness, dry skin, nausea, decreased appetite, alopecia, rash, asthenia, irritability, myalgia, anaemia, pyrexia, cough, dyspnoea, neutropenia, diarrhoea and arthralgia. The most frequently reported adverse reactions (frequency of 1% or greater) were neutropenia, anaemia and lymphopenia. The safety profile of daclatasvir in combination with Peginterferon alfa and Ribavirin was similar to that seen with Peginterferon alfa and Ribavirin alone, including among patients with cirrhosis. Precautions: Bradycardia with Sofobuvir and Amiodarone coadministration: Serious symptomatic bradycardia may occur in patients taking amiodarone with Sofosbuvir in combination with Daclatasvir, particularly in patients also receiving beta blockers, or those with underlying cardiac comorbidities and/or advanced liver disease. Coadministration of amiodarone with Sofobuvir in combination with Daclatasvir is not recommended. Daclatasvir must not be administered as monotherapy. Daclatasvir must be administered in combination with other medicinal products for the treatment of chronic HCV infection Contraindications: Bradycardia with Sofobuvir and Amiodarone coadministration: Serious symptomatic bradycardia may occur in patients taking amiodarone with Sofosbuvir in combination with Daclatasvir, particularly in patients also receiving beta blockers, or those with underlying cardiac comorbidities and/or advanced liver disease. Coadministration of amiodarone with Sofobuvir in combination with Daclatasvir is not recommended. Daclatasvir must not be administered as monotherapy. Daclatasvir must be administered in combination with other medicinal products for the treatment of chronic HCV infection Buy Daclatasvir 60 mg online is always costly. But our Virodacla tablet 28’s is an excellent quality medicine with low cost. https://emergencydrug.com/drug/daclatasvir-60-mg-virodacla-tablet/

The majority of people infected with the hepatitis C virus are treated with combination therapy, which consists of peginterferon injections and ribavirin pills. As this is a long-term treatment program (lasting from 6 months to up to a year), being consistent in taking the medications is a critical part of how well the drugs may work. This consistency is known as "compliance," or being compliant to the treatment plan. Learn more at http://hepatitis-c.emedtv.com.

Yes, there are "cures" for Hepatitis C. There are standard conventional medicine treatments for HCV that can "cure" you. For Hepatitis C, "cure" is also known as "sustained viral remission" (SVR) and that is why I put the word cure in quotes. EVERYONE SHOULD consider their options and CONSULT WITH A HEP C DOCTOR about their chances of SVR which they can predict after looking at test results for genotype, viral load, and looking at the condition of your liver. According to a recent article published in June, 2009 Hepatology, "up to 50% of patients with chronic hepatitis C fail to respond to initial therapy with pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) and ribavirin (RBV). With unsuccessful viral eradication, these patients remain at risk for developing progression of their liver disease." If you are among these "nonresponders," if you are someone who has low chances of Hepatitis C SVR through conventional treatment, if you are frightened of the many reported horrible side effects of Hep C conventional treatment, if you are seeking complimentary alternative medicine (CAM) to use in conjunction with interferon to improve your odds of beating Hepatitis C, or if you are simply interested in natural, holistic options, then you are in the right place!

Hepatitis C Virus Market 2022
 
01:03
Complete report is available @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/pharmapoint-hepatitis-c-virus-global-drug-forecast-and-market-analysis-to-2022-market-report.html . Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) that results in acute or chronic presentation. The disease is often asymptomatic, but infected patients may experience fatigue, joint pain, itchy skin or jaundice. There is no effective vaccine against HCV, so the market is driven by therapeutics. Currently, drug combinations containing pegylated interferon (e.g., Roche's Pegasys and Merck's PegIntron) and ribavirin (e.g., Roche's Copegus and Merck's Rebetol) are used to treat HCV infection. Patients infected with HCV genotype 1 can also have a protease inhibitor added to their combination therapy, such as Merck's Victrelis (boceprevir) or Vertex's Incivek (telaprevir). The entrance of next-generation HCV therapies is expected to fundamentally change the HCV treatment algorithm. Researcher expects a dramatic shift favoring the uptake of interferon-free regimens due to their more tolerable side-effect profiles and decreased duration of therapy compared with the current standard of care.

http://www.dailyrx.com/hepatitis-c-treatments-have-advanced-and-increased-recent-years In the last three years, there have been many advances in treating hepatitis C, which can not only offer patients more treatment options but also shorter treatment times. Until a few years ago, there were only two treatment options for Hepatitis C. These treatments included pegylated interferon (Pegasys or PEG-Intron) in combination with weight-based ribavirin. Now there are several more. Hepatitis C is an infection caused by a virus that inflames the liver and can lead to liver disease if left untreated. It is spread chiefly through the infected blood of patients.

visit http://tov1.net/hepatitis hepatitis c interferon treatment -- Hepatitis C is the most prevalent liver disease in the world. The World Health Organization considers Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) an epidemic. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 20-30% of people with chronic Hepatitis C will eventually face life-threatening symptoms. Is there a cure for Hepatitis C? Yes, there are "cures" for Hepatitis C. There are standard conventional medicine treatments for HCV that can "cure" you. For Hepatitis C, "cure" is also known as "sustained viral remission" (SVR) and that is why I put the word cure in quotes. EVERYONE SHOULD consider their options and CONSULT WITH A HEP C DOCTOR about their chances of SVR which they can predict after looking at test results for genotype, viral load, and looking at the condition of your liver. According to a recent article published in June, 2009 Hepatology, "up to 50% of patients with chronic hepatitis C fail to respond to initial therapy with pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) and ribavirin (RBV). With unsuccessful viral eradication, these patients remain at risk for developing progression of their liver disease." If you are among these "nonresponders," if you are someone who has low chances of Hepatitis C SVR through conventional treatment, if you are frightened of the many reported horrible side effects of Hep C conventional treatment, if you are seeking complimentary alternative medicine (CAM) to use in conjunction with interferon to improve your odds of beating Hepatitis C, or if you are simply interested in natural, holistic options, then you are in the right place! We strive to report all the natural healing options for Hepatitis C on this website but we emphasize working with a Hep Doctor is extremely important to your chances of recovery. I want to help you find answers to your questions about alternative treatments for hepatitis C.

I strive to provide consumer-oriented, unbiased, scientific information about hepatitis C and your treatment options. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to hepatitis C. But there are Hepatitis C complimentary alternative medicine (CAM) treatments and protocols that have been used successfully with a variety of results ranging from normalizing liver enzyme levels to total "clearance" and "elimination" of the hepatitis virus! Results vary. Methods of treatment for Hep C vary. It is our goal to make all this information available to you by providing well-researched reports on the methods being used. This website will present you with all of the alternative treatments to mitigate, possibly even cure hepatitis C!

A-VAg47 Takes on Hepatitis C

A-VAg47 (avag47) has been shown to decrease the viral count in a patient with hepatitis c from 3.5 million down to around 15,000. The PegInterferon and Ribavirin treatment costs $20,000+ with about 25 pretty horrendous side effects and ONLY works 40% of the time where you can obtain an AVAg47 Maker for less than $100 with NO side effects and has reduced the viral count for people over and over again.

Dr. Ira Jacobson on the New Standard of Care for Hepatitis C
 
05:00
At the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology in Washington, DC, Ira Jacobson, MD, chief of the division of gastroenterology and hepatology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, discusses the new standard of care for hepatitis C patients: triple therapy including one of the recently approved protease inhibitors (telaprevir or boceprevir) along with pegylated interferon and ribavirin. He explains that this triple therapy has dramatically increased cure rates and allowed many patients to cut their treatment period in half. In addition, he describes some of the ongoing research into several dozen other drugs for hepatitis C, some of which hold out the promise of interferon-free therapy regimens.

Medco Health Analysis Shows Antidepressants Boost Patient Adherence to Hepatitis C Treatment
 
00:58
Medco Health Solutions (MHS) today announced that in a new observational analysis it has conducted, Hepatitis C patients who also being treated for depression -- a frequent side effect of the Hepatitis C drug interferon --are more likely to remain on their interferon therapy. The analysis is being presented today at the International Conference on Viral Hepatitis 2011. According to the study, about 40% of Hepatitis C patients on interferon and ribavirin--an antiviral medication used in combination with interferon--were not adherent to their medication regimen, putting them at risk for progression of their disease because the virus cannot be eliminated. The research found that 77.3% of patients who adhered to their Hepatitis C treatment also used antidepressants. Shares are down 1% to $55.26.

Interim results of pegylated interferon alpha-2a for polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia
 
03:14
Ruben Mesa, MD of the Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, AZ discusses the impact on myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) symptoms and quality of life of frontline pegylated interferon alpha-2a versus hydroxyurea in high-risk polycythemia vera (PV) and essential thrombocythemia (ET). The interim analysis results of this Myeloproliferative Disorders Research Consortium (MPD-RC) 112 global Phase III trial (NCT01258856) were presented at the 2016 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting, held in San Diego, CA. The top-level information shows that pegylated interferon was active and so far, one can say that it is not inferior to hydroxyurea regarding primary endpoints such as controlling blood counts and impact on bone marrow. As part of the trial, they conducted a detailed patient-reported outcome assessment, which showed that there is a low-grade amount of toxicity with pegylated interferon. Prof. Mesa further discusses its impact on MPN symptoms.
