As we improve our understanding of the molecular virology of hepatitis C virus (HCV), a variety of new potential antiviral strategies are emerging. Moving beyond interferon and ribavirin, these new strategies for the first time are aimed at HCV-specific targets. It is expected, by analogy with other infections, that effective pharmacologic control of HCV will be achieved best by using a cocktail of such virus-specific agents, each designed against an independent target. As a result, the way we treat HCV should change dramatically over the next few years.
