Over the next three years, starting within the next few weeks, new drugs
are expected to come to market that will cure most patients with the
virus, in some cases with a once-a-day pill taken for as little as eight
weeks, and with only minimal side effects.
That would be a vast improvement over current therapies, which cure
about 70 percent of newly treated patients but require six to 12 months
of injections that can bring horrible side effects.
