Coffee –a catalyst in the treatment of Hepatitis C

By: Chris Kevin | Jun 10, 2011 10:04 AM

Coffee has always been known for its therapeutic effects. A recent study revealed that coffee can do wonders for those diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Motivating the action of peginterferon plus ribavirin treatment, coffee augments the drug response of the concerned patients. A non-drinker is likely to be sensitive to respond sooner than an alcoholic. Neal Freedman,(PhD, MPH), of the National Cancer Institute, who has studied this association between coffee and Hepatitis C in-depth, says that coffee improves the prognosis in a chronic liver disease, lowers the enzymes produces and also reduce the chances of malignancy of liver. Neal freedman adds that though the co-relation between coffee and the virologic response to hepatitis C treatment has been observed, one cannot apply the same in general and needs further study. The author states that those who consumed coffee about more than thrice a day were lesser prone to liver cancer and also showed slower pace of the progress of liver disease. However, it would be interesting to reveal the action of coffee on those who are in a preliminary stage of the illness or are still a virgin to therapy.
