Current and Evolving Treatments of Genotype 1 Hepatitis C Virus

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Development of antiviral agents that target the hepatitis C virus (HCV) has improved the success and tolerability of treatment, especially for patients with HCV genotype 1 infection. The new treatment options mean that clinicians are better able to prevent complications from chronic HCV infection. The field of direct-acting antiviral therapies for HCV infection continues to advance at a rapid pace, and many more potential treatment regimens are being investigated. This article presents a summary of the current treatments available for patients infected with HCV genotype 1 and looks ahead to those that may play a role in the future.
