Can hepatitis be treated?

There are no treatments to cure hepatitis A, aside from carefully monitoring liver function. Hepatitis B, when chronic, can often be treated successfully. The most commonly used drugs for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B are entecavir and tenofovir.

For hepatitis C, we use the drugs simeprevir, daclatasvir, sofosbuvir, the combination of sofosbuvir and ledipasvir, and the combination of paritaprevir, ombitasvir, ritonavir, and dasabuvir. These drugs are well tolerated and result in a cure rate exceeding 90%.
