Hepatitis C is caused by a viral infection that leads to liver inflammation and serious liver damage. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is bloodborne, spread by contact with contaminated blood, and currently no vaccine is available. Many people who suffer from chronic hepatitis C will eventually develop cirrhosis or primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). At The Center for Liver Diseases at Sheba Medical Center in Israel, our team comprises world-class experts who custom design and administer the latest treatments for hepatitis C.
Treatments at Sheba
Our hepatologists and other specialists offer the most advanced and personalized treatments for hepatitis C. In general, the goal of all HCV treatments is to clear the virus from the body and prevent it from causing liver damage, which can lead to liver failure or primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma).
To optimize and custom tailor your treatment, Sheba’s physicians will perform testing to identify your virus genotype and its level (PCR) in the blood serum, as well as conduct a genetic test to predict your chances of responding to antiviral therapy. We may also perform a noninvasive fibroscan to assess liver inflammation and scarring, along with a FibroTest blood evaluation to check the degree of liver disease.
We offer cutting-edge antiviral therapy for patients with HCV. Recent improvements in antiviral medications have led to better outcomes, fewer side effects, drugs that are easier to take, and a shorter duration of treatment.
