“Researchers from UT Medicine San Antonio and the Texas Liver Institute used a new type of treatment plan, which was interferon-free and contained numerous agents.” The new treatment, “was capable of curing 91.8 percent of the patients who took the pill for 12 weeks. For patients that took the pill for 24 weeks, 95.9 percent of them had no signs of the hepatitis C virus in their bloodstream. These patients were also virus-free 12 weeks after they ended their treatment.”
