2. About hepatitis C: Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus that predominantly infects the cells of the liver. This can result in inflammation and significant damage to the liver. It can also affect the liver's ability to perform its essential functions. Although it has always been regarded as a liver disease - 'hepatitis' means 'inflammation of the liver' - recent research has shown that the hepatitis C virus (HCV) affects a number of other areas of the body. These can include the digestive system, the lymphatic system, the immune system and the brain.
