Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The Most Trusted Resource and Reference for Millions of Americans
Living with Hepatitis C was the first book to explain in everyday language the causes of this disease, its major and minor symptoms, and all of the latest treatments available. Researchers have continued to make dramatic strides in helping the millions of Americans who suffer from Hepatitis C since the book's first publication, and each new edition has kept up with the most recent findings.
The latest revised Living With Hepatitis C, Fifth Edition includes cutting-edge information on:
* New treatments including pegylated and consensus interferons
* Living-donor transplants
* Co-infections with Hepatitis B and HIV/AIDS
* Promising new clinical trials of protease and polymerase inhibitors
* New maintenance therapies, an expanded and updated resource section, ways to avoid infection, and much more
Living with Hepatitis C, Fifth Edition is still the "gold standard" resource and reference for those who must endure this disease. It offers guidance and answers for those infected by the virus--and for their spouses, families, and friends.
