Hello:

Welcome to the December 2011 eblast. A great deal is happening in the viral hepatitis community. I am delighted to announce the publication of my book, Free from Hepatitis C: Your Complete Guide to Healing Hepatitis C. Also exciting, is the news from the recent AASLD Liver Meeting. A new fact sheet was created this month to help patients manage an HCV side effect, anal itching. You may be surprised to learn that this problem is more complicated than just addressing the itch, but that something can be done about it.
