    from mike adams,natural news:Mainstream medicine uses two drugs, usually prescribed together, to treat hepatitis C: interferon and ribavirin. Unfortunately, the side effects to this combination are often so horrendous (ranging from severe fatigue, constant flu-type symptoms and nausea to birth defects) that a lot of hepatitis C sufferers can't stick with the therapy. What's more, for those who do manage to keep taking the interferon/ribavirin treatment, at best,only about half get a positive response, for other genotypes, its as low as 10%.

    But a new study just released shows that nature seems to be able to do what Big Pharma can't -- kill the virus without damaging cells in the body. Scientists at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) have discovered that two plant-derived bioflavonoids, catechin and naringenin, display powerful antiviral activity on tissue culture infected with hepatitis C

    A liver pathologist, Dr. Wheeler previously found that another plant-derived bioflavonoid, quercetin used by many people as a nutritional supplement, can help stop production of the hepatitis C virus without any cell toxicity.

    Dr. French and his research team's next step is to test catechin and naringenin on patients with a Phase I clinical trial.
