2. What is non-interferon therapy?

The non-interferon therapy involves the use of drugs that contain substances such as ombitasvir, paritaprevir, ritonavir (1 EAN code) and dasabuvu, which have maximum efficacy in the treatment of hepatitis C.

These modern drugs can be used in patients of all ages, regardless of the stage at which they have the disease. The patient requires constant medical supervision, however, hospitalization is not needed. This means that the patient is not exposed to stress and can undergo the therapy, which lasts from 12 to 24 weeks and costs about 60,000 zl (about 17600 US$). The therapy is completely safe and does not cause side effects, and most importantly - eliminates the virus in 90 to 100 percent of patients.

Older hepatitis C treatment therapies are much longer and more expensive - they last up to 72 weeks, and their cost often exceeds 160,000zl (47,200 US$).
In addition, they cause severe side effects - patients complain of very high fever, hair loss and skin problems. The success rate of healing hepatitis C with these older therapies is 70%.
