  • But elimination of hepatitis C in people who inject drugs is unlikely to be achieved unless the number of people with hepatitis C who share injecting equipment can be reduced. (infohep.org)
  • This can only be achieved by a combination of provision of sterile needles and injecting equipment to reduce sharing, OST to reduce injecting and direct-acting antiviral treatment to reduce the number of people who are able to transmit hepatitis C. (infohep.org)
  • I hope our research will encourage countries to overturn these policies and allow treatment to all people living with hepatitis C, regardless of current or previous drug use. (infohep.org)
  • Our data provides robust evidence to inform global clinical guidelines, and we hope it will improve public health policy for hepatitis C treatment for people who use drugs internationally. (infohep.org)

(infohep.org)
  • The review identified 38 studies with 3634 participants including five randomised clinical trials (634 participants) and five analyses of clinical trials conducted after the trial was completed to investigate responses in people who used drugs (517 participants). (infohep.org)
