Abstract

HCV virus has been a worldwide health-issue with noted expectancy ranging from 0.6% to 10% depending on geographical factors, and an estimated 71 million individuals worldwide are infected with this chronic virus. Diagnostic methods comprise HCV RNA test, Geno sensor, and laboratory testing, etc. With time there has been an immense number of advancements in HCV treatment. It started with the use of non-beneficial acyclovir to the introduction of interferons with incredible positive effects to cure hepatitis C patients. In this paper, we will review various classes of antiHCV medications (PEGylated Interferon/RBV, DAA, and HTAs). Nanotechnology is a hallmark in the latest therapies involved in the management of HCV sufferers. WHO, in its Global health sectors strategy on viral hepatitis 2016-2021, hopes to reduce the spreading of this virus by 90% up-to year 2030.
