***NEW*** NIH Consensus Panel Statement on HCV: This independent, nonadvocate, non-Federal panel issued its preliminary statement at the conclusion of a two-and-a-half-day NIH Consensus Development Conference on Management of Hepatitis C: 2002 held on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The meeting was convened to provide an update to a 1997 conference on the same topic. This consensus panel broke away from its 1997 predecessors by expanding the scope of patients eligible for treatment to include those who use injected drugs, consume alcohol, suffer from co-morbid conditions such as depression, or who are coinfected with HIV.

Among its recommendations for future research, the panel gave top priority to the development of reliable and reproducible HCV cultures, which will advance the understanding of its biology, mechanisms of drug resistance, and aid vaccine development. The panel urged the establishment of a hepatitis research network that would conduct research into the natural history, prevention, and treatment of hepatitis C. Studies to determine the efficacy of alternative medicines are also needed. The panel also recommended the development of strategies to better prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease in injection drug users and the incarcerated population.

HOWEVER, From the Addiction treatment and/or Public Health point of view, there may be some significant omissions and/or ambiguities still there. FOR EXTRA CREDIT: Please describe at least 2 such omissions and/or ambiguities, and use the confidential messaging function of this website to send me no more than one brief paragraph that describes these omissions/ambiguities relevant to addiction screening, treatment or other public health issues for drug/alcohol abuse or abusers, notwithstand the specific details of therapy against the HCV virus itself. Please pay particular attention to sections 4,5,6 and the conclusions.
