Rate this:
An estimated 4 million Americans live with chronic hepatitis C, but because the disease can be asymptomatic, most are unaware that they have contracted it. This inflammation of the liver is caused by a virus that is usually spread when infected blood enters the body, often through sharing needles or via unsterile tattoo and piercing equipment. While there is no vaccine or sure cure for hepatitis C, the disease often responds favorably when patients undergo treatment. In this program, scientists and patients tell their stories, and viewers learn why there is new hope for people diagnosed with hepatitis C.
