Hepatitis C researchers working in lab Lab research on hepatitis C

Mayo Clinic researchers are studying the ways the hepatitis C virus may respond to treatment.

Mayo Clinic doctors and researchers are studying innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C, with particular emphasis on optimal antiviral therapy before and after liver transplant. Immunologists and virologists are also working on development of a hepatitis C vaccine.

Another area of research is cell transplantation, which involves infusing liver cells, cells much like liver cells or stem cells through the portal vein into the liver or into a peripheral blood vessel to repair liver damage.
