Recognizing Hepatitis R & D on World Hepatitis Day
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, most commonly caused by a viral infection. There are five main hepatitis viruses, with types A, B, C most common. In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that Americans were infected with 24,900 cases of hepatitis A and 21,600 cases of hepatitis B, many of which go undiagnosed because individuals do not know they are infected. Over the past several years, the biopharmaceutical industry has made significant progress in bringing medicines to patients that improve cure rates, reduce side effects and duration of treatment and expand treatment options.
