Treating chronic hepatitis C is crucial to preventing long-term complications such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. New treatments may improve response rates, but the high cost of therapy is a major concern. This article reviews two of these new treatments, sofosbuvir and simeprevir.

Melissa Murfin is an assistant professor in the PA program at Elon (N.C.) University. The author has disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
