The US National Institutes of Health has issued treatment suggestions for chronic HCV illness. The guidelines recommend that patients be treated with a combined mix of an injectable medicine called pegylated interferon alpha and an oral antiviral drug known as ribavirin because this combination works more effectively than either drug by itself. Specifically, specific pegylated interferons, for example, peginterferon alfa-2a , have improved sustained response prices. The protease inhibitors telaprevir and boceprevir are in another class of medicines that have been approved for the treating genotype type 1 HCV. . These protease inhibitors are given in conjunction with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin for the treatment of genotype 1 chronic HCV to adult individuals with compensated liver disease, including cirrhosis.Kaiser Health Information, an editorially independent information service, is a program of the Kaiser Family members Foundation, a nonpartisan health care policy research firm unaffiliated with Kaiser Permanente..
