    DescriptionRapid and profound changes are taking place in the field of hepatitis C therapeutics. More than ever, these changes necessitate a current, clinically pertinent review of the broader scope of hepatitis C, including its epidemiology, diagnosis, natural history, and clinical features. This handbook provides that concise survey of the field. Acute and chronic hepatitis C are addressed as are important new treatment options for hepatitis C, management of side effects, and a convenient summary of clinical trials on the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. Part of the Oxford American Infectious Disease Library, this evidence-based clinical resource will appeal to clinicians directly involved in the care of patients with hepatitis C.

    Review quote
    In the vast field of the publications on hepatitis C, a book like this is sorely needed. The authors have succeeded in writing a meaningful, user-friendly guide to hepatitis C... The book covers may subjects, from basic virology, epidemiology, and diagnostic testing to treatment and dealing with side effects of the antiviral drugs. The information is condensed but well organized, so readers are not overwhelmed. Cezarina Mindru for Doody's, July 2013
