Could a clinical trial help pay for hepatitis C treatment?

Ask your doctor whether a clinical trial of a hepatitis C drug might be right for you. You can search for trials near you on the ClinicalTrials.gov website.

In a clinical trial, you get free treatment and care in exchange for helping scientists research new medications.
