An Overview of Risk Factors of Vertical Transmission of Hepatitis C Virus and Treatment Options for Chronic HCV

This essay focuses on hepatitis C transmission, the methods used for viral screening and the risk factors involved in mother-to-child transmission. Bearing in mind that HCV infected children rarely clear the infection after the age of four, different treatment options for chronic HCV will be discussed. Additionally, to identify the most effective treatment for children and adults, monotherapy will be compared to combined therapy.
