New Hepatitis C Treatment Protocol

The Delaware Department of Corrections Medical Director, Dr. Spencer Epps, made a presentation Hepatitis C Treatment in Corrections: New Medicine, New Challenges at the August 6, 2011 Research and Best Practices Committee meeting about the proposed changes in the Hepatitis C treatment protocol that can have a significant impact on correctional agencies' inmate medical costs.  The new protocol is recommended as more successful treatment for those who do not respond to the current Hepatitis C treatment but at a significantly higher cost.  Click here to view Dr. Epp's presentation.
