Hepatitis C Research and Treatment

Hepatitis C  Research and Treatment

The number of people living with hepatitis C is rising in this country. Recently, the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended that “baby boomers,” people born between 1945 and 1965, be tested for hepatitis C. According to the CDC over 3.5 million Americans have hepatitis C and many are unaware that they are infected. This makes the testing, treatment and care provided by SCC is more important than ever. “Baby boomers,” past and present injection drug users, and those with HIV/AIDS are at risk as well. People living with hepatitis C may have no symptoms, but it can still be highly damaging to the liver. At SCC we offer a rapid hepatitis C test with results in 20 minutes.  Should you test positive, the most up-to-date medical care and research options are available to you  We can now cure 90 to 100% range of people with hepatitis C.
