Hepatitis viruses can lead to chronic liver diseases, including cirrhosis and cancer. Hepatitis A incidence in 2006 was the lowest ever recorded in the United States. Hepatitis B incidence has declined 90% since the last nationwide outbreak in 1995. Incidence of acute Hepatitis C has declined 90% since 1992; however, a large burden of disease caused by chronic Hepatitis C virus infection remains.
The Hepatitis situation in the United States has improved; however, persons infected with the disease are subjected to rigorous drug regimens.
