This month’s HCV Advocate newsletter is all about The Liver Meeting held in San Francisco, CA. There was much information about hepatitis C (HCV) presented, and there were demonstrations held—what more could anyone want? In Part 1 of our Liver Conference coverage Lucinda and I report on the following:
Snapshots – I cover some of the most exciting late-breaking posters about HCV treatment including treating genotype 3, cirrhosis and post-transplant HCV and those pesky RAVs with multiple drug combinations in clinical development.
HealthWise – Lucinda covers advocacy issues including the protests at AASLD and she discusses her favorite posters and presentations.
We have overhauled our medical glossary and herbal glossary to make it easier to navigate. Check them out!
We have begun a new feature highlighting some of the best websites for our readers. In this edition we are recommending OASISclinic.org that has tons of information, brochures and informational videos that you can download free of charge.
Lastly, we would like to take this time to ask you to think about donating to our organization—the Hepatitis C Support Project, a Project of the Tides Center. Any contribution you can afford will help us to provide the much-needed education and support that we provide to the hepatitis C community. Click here to learn more.
