Infergen for chronic hepatitis C
Amgen is promoting Infergen for chronic hepatitis C.
Hepatitis C is one of the many types of viral hepatitis. It's usually transmitted parenterally...IV drug use, accidental needle sticks, hemodialysis, etc.
About 4 million people are now infected with hepatitis C...it's four times as common as HIV. Most of them develop the chronic form that can lead to cirrhosis...liver failure...or liver cancer.
