The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the leading cause of liver disease in the United States and certainly the most common cause of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma; it is also the most common reason for liver transplantation. Almost 4 million people in this country are believed to be infected with this virus. Following its identification first in 1974 as non-A, non-B hepatitis, shown later to be predominantly a consequence of HCV infection, much was learned about the virus and the disease it causes. Chief among these was the issue of how to manage and treat the liver disease.
