Hepatitis C treatment that leads to viral suppression significantly reduces the likelihood of liver disease progression and liver-related mortality, but most people with hepatitis C remain untreated, according to a presentation at The Liver Meeting 2013, the 64th annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD), last week in Washington, DC. Other studies found that a growing proportion of liver transplants are due to hepatocellular carcinoma, which can still occur even after treatment.
