The standard treatment for hepatitis C, interferon and ribavirin, cures just 45% of those who receive it. There are now several dozen new drugs for the disease under development, and 2 were approved by the FDA in 2011: telaprevir and boceprevir.

Researchers are also looking at ways of tailoring treatment to individual patients based on genetic testing.
