Q: Is research actively being done with hepatitis C?

The VA, the NIH (National Institute of Health), and many other organizations are very interested in hepatitis C right now. Participation in clinical trials (research programs that test the safety and usefulness of new drugs and procedures) can be a good way to get the latest treatments for HCV. There is a strong focus on understanding the virus and developing newer and more effective treatments, and trying to lessen the side effects of existing combination therapy.
