Hep C vaccine hope

5th January 2012

Researchers at Oxford University say that an early clinical trial of a hepatitis C vaccine has shown promising results.

While designing a vaccine has been difficult as the virus changes its appearance, making it hard to find something to target, the researchers - writing in Science Translational Medicine - say their trial on 41 patients shows it is possible. The Hepatitis C Trust said the findings were very promising. Up to 500,000 people in the UK may be infected with the virus, which can cause considerable liver damage.
