The Spectrum of Molecular Testing Protocols for HCV: Identifying and Monitoring Disease Progression and Treatment Efficacy

Description: Over the last few years, a number of innovative new treatment options for chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) have become available, including several new direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs). The emerging class of DAAs currently includes 3 NS3-4A protease inhibitors, 5 NS5A inhibitors, and 2 NS5B polymerase inhibitors, which are used in various combinations to treat the HCV genotypes 1-6. Learn how utilization of DAAs has dramatically advanced the standard of care for HCV, leading to enhanced efficacy, fewer side effects, and better outcomes for patients.
