How does VIEKIRA PAK work?
When you have a chronic (long lasting) infection with Hep C, the virus multiplies inside your liver cells and will eventually damage your liver, causing scarring which is known as fibrosis. The scarring may become severe over time and this is known as cirrhosis (pronounced as si-roh-sis).3 In some people, this damage can stop the liver from working properly.
VIEKIRA PAK includes three medicines, known as ‘direct-acting antivirals’ (DAAs), that stop the Hep C virus from multiplying. When virus multiplication is stopped for a certain period of time, the Hep C virus can be cleared from the body.1,2
