Hepatitis C Virus Infection and Alcohol: Challenges and Opportunities


Jun 2015 by Professor David Goldberg
This report, prepared by Professor David Goldberg and supported by Bristol Myers-Squibb, looks at the linkages between excessive alcohol consumption and hepatitis C, and explores how excessive alcohol consumption can act as a barrier to people with hepatitis C being considered for, receiving and the benefit of treatment for hepatitis C.

The report contains a number of recommendations, including that for hepatitis C-infected people whose consumption of alcohol exceeds mild levels, the management of such consumption should be taken as seriously as the management of their hepatitis C.
