Blood Transfusion
Receiving organs from people who have Hepatitis C Causes Symptoms Preventions Affect People's Lives Defense Mechanism Hepatitis C Jaundice
Pain in the right upper abdomen

Dark urine
Itching skin
Appetite Lost
Nausea and Vomiting
Clay-colored or pale stools Skin produces enzymes to help kill bacteria
Second line of defense - leukocytes and phagocytes

Third line of defense- lymphocytes
Third line of defense also consists of T-cells What is Hepatitis C? •When handling blood, Health Care workers should
use gloves and sanitize everything.

•Do not share needles with anyone.

•Do not get tattoo or body piercings or receive acupuncture from someone who does not have a permit or license.

no chronic infection with HAV Hepatitis B Hepatitis B (HBV) is found in blood as well as bodily fluids
HBV can be either acute or chronic Vaccinations for both A & B Hepatitis C is found only in blood
no vaccine for HCV
HCV is for the most part a chronic illness Differences
(With other types) Treatment Medicines - Peginterferon and other antiviral drugs
Helping body to get rid of the virus.

Hepatitis C Virus is Lysogenic
It stays dormant
Most people do not know they have it.
Turns lytic once it can’t stay in the host cell anymore. Source: http://bodyandhealth.canada.com/ HCV VICTIMS Canada: 242,500 individuals are infected with (HCV).
21% of these individuals don't know they are infected and remain undiagnosed.
Many people infected with HCV have no symptoms and are unaware of their infection, but they are still infectious. source: Public Health Agency of Canada Mortality Rate As of the latest list of WHO of Death Rate (2011), Canada has 0.7 rate per 100,000 population.
It means that in every 100,000, there are 700 people who have chronic type of hepatitis and can lead to death. source: http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com A Liver disease
Can range in severity from a mild illness lasting to a few weeks to a serious condition.
