12-week course of new Hepatisis C drug costs $94,500

By Barker:(NaturalNews) There is new hope for those infected with the potentially deadly hepatitis C virus -- but only for those who can afford it.

The FDA recently approved a combination pill -- the first of its kind -- to treat hepatitis C. The new drug appears to be very effective, with a cure rate of 94 percent in those who took it for a three-month period. For people with hard-to-treat hep C (such as those with cirrhosis), a six-month treatment was administered with a resultant cure rate of nearly 100 percent.
