Some people with HCV may not for antiviral therapy due to contraindications treatment. Previous studies have shown that only half of the HCV patients show a positive response to peginterferon / ribavirin. ‘The side effect profile of the current antiviral therapy requires careful selection of treatment candidates with a number of chronic diseases,’said Dr. Younossi. The authors noted that patients with comorbidities such as active cardiac disease, severe depression , or renal failure are for antiviral for antiviral therapy due to severe side effects that can occur with treatment, eligible.

African American women are also more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age, and in women in the U.S. Under the age of 45 years, African Americans have the highest incidence rates. Are also more likely to be diagnosed with higher stage disease – ie, estrogen receptor – negative, high-grade tumors that are node – positive. The clinical picture is similar to the Ashkenazi populations that led to the discovery of the BRCA-1 and-2 gene mutations identified, after which many scientists speculate that there is a genetic component may be contributing to breast cancer in African-Americans.
