Temple University Hospital is offering free hepatitis C testing to 312 patients after a temporary medical technician was charged with causing an outbreak of the virus in New Hampshire.
Saturday is World Hepatitis Day focusing on viruses that affect several million people in the U.S.
Health officials say a medical technician accused of infecting patients in New Hampshire with hepatitis C worked two temporary assignments in Pennsylvania.
A new study indicates that one in every 33 baby boomers has the hepatitis C virus, and many don’t even know they have this liver destroying disease.
In 1992, doctors diagnosed Eric Neikrug with hepatitis C after decades of slightly elevated liver enzymes and increased exhaustion. Now there’s new hope.
The enzyme dgat1, just discovered, is necessary for a serious liver infection called hepatitis c to become aggressive but researchers believe medication may help.
