The impact of race and ethnicity on the treatment of hepatitis C disease
Hepatitis C is the most common blood-borne infection in the United States and the most common cause of liver-related morbidity and mortality. There are significant racial/ethnic disparities in the epidemiology, natural history, and treatment outcomes of hepatitis C infection. These disparities have been characterized more extensively in the African American and white populations, but a few recent investigations have included analyses of hepatitis C infection in Hispanic, Alaska Native, American Indian, and Asian populations. Additional research into disease progression and treatment outcomes in these populations is needed. Copyright © 2006 by Current Science Inc.
