HCV is a blood-borne infectious disease that affects the liver. With an estimated 170 million people infected worldwide1 and three to four million people newly infected each year, HCV puts a significant burden on patients and society. Chronic infection with HCV can lead to liver cancer and other serious and fatal liver diseases, and is the most common cause of liver transplant worldwide. Discovering and developing new treatments is very important to improving the standard of care for the millions of people living with this disease.
