- Significant changes with HCV treatment since original publication The fifth-year anniversary of the book ushers in a new phase of treatment and information, including protease inhibitors, (which have been so successful in treating HIV), split-liver transplants, and prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines for HCV.

It has infected 300 million people worldwide (4.1 million in the United States) and kills, 8,000 to 10,000 Americans each year. About 26,00. people in the United States are infected yearly; Chronic hepatitis C is the number one cause of liver transplants. - Key lifestyle issues: Both Bruce and Montanarelli were diagnosed at a young age; the book offers emotional support for newly diagnosed patients, helps them navigate and overcome insurance obstacles, as well as providing suggestions for making necessary changes in diet, exercise, drinking habits, drug use, dating, and sex life.
