Caption: Hepatitis C virus. Computer artwork of hepatitis C virus particles (virions) in the human body. The virus consists of a core of RNA (ribonucleic acid) enclosed in a capsid, surrounded by a glycoprotein envelope (purple). Inserted in the envelope are surface proteins (dark patches), 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.
