Caption: Hepatitis C viruses. Artwork of hepatitis C virus particles (virions) infecting liver cells. The virus consists of a core of RNA (ribonucleic acid, green) enclosed in a capsid, and surrounding by a glycoprotein envelope (purple). Inserted in the envelope are surface proteins (brown and purple spheres), which help the virus attach to its host cell. The hepatitis C virus infects liver cells causing an inflammatory disease that can lead to degeneration and scarring (cirrhosis). It is transmitted by blood-to-blood contact. There is no vaccine for hepatitis C.
