Implementation of Dried Blood Spots (DBS) for Hepatitis C (HCV) Elimination


Abstract

DATE:  July 29, 2020

TIME:   9:00am PDT, 12:009m EDT, 6:00pm CEST

 

Hepatitis C infection, once a formidable enemy, is now a curable disease. Dramatic advances in antiviral therapies have launched a new era in how hepatitis C is treated and in turn have significantly improved the prognosis once an infection is identified. Unfortunately, many individuals today who are infected with hepatitis C are completely unaware of infection status; it is estimated that only 20% of cases worldwide are diagnosed.  Only when individuals are tested and diagnosed with a hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection can they be treated and reap the benefits of these therapeutic innovations. Bridging the gap between unaware and diagnosed can make huge differences in a patient’s long-term prognosis. 

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Underatand HCV disease state overview
  • Discuss the Role of Dried Blood Spots (DBS) in management of HCV infection
  • Discuss the Performance of m2000 RealTime HCV DBS
  • Discuss Implementation strategies for HCV elimination
