        Building Vaccines | QUEST

        In this video adapted from KQED's QUEST series, learn how the hepatitis C virus (HCV), a leading cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer that is spread through blood-to-blood contact, attacks liver cells, and how it's difficult to eradicate HCV without destroying the host cells. The video also explores how scientists such as Dr. Jeffrey Glenn are researching methods for treating the "silent epidemic" by targeting viral replication sites.
