In recent years, the number of hepatitis C cases has nearly tripled, and our approach to its treatment has changed dramatically. While significant advances have been made in the diagnosis and potential to cure this deadly infection, other issues, such as the current opioid epidemic, present unforeseen challenges. It’s essential that lab professionals understand this new context, the latest CDC guidelines for hepatitis screening, and their own pivotal role in minimizing the infection’s devastation.
