Greg Jefferys Hepatitis C blog deals with all the issues associated with hepatitis C
The treatment of young children with Hep C, that is pre-teenage children was approached very carefully by the medical world. When DAAs first became available the prevailing wisdom was not to treat children because, in most cases, the virus did not do any apparent damage to children (much like with COVID 19).
However recently more children are being treated and so I will mention here that treatment with DAAs is WEIGHT BASED!
This means that the dose rate for a child must be based on their body weight.
I have been involved, as an observer, in the treatment of a number of children with Hepatitis C by specialists, and generally children seem to be quite sensitive to DAAs, so getting the dose rate right is important.
