Brief Answer: 45 - 50% cure rate. less commonly sexually transmi Detailed Answer: Hello, Only 45 to 50 percent of people can be cured after treatment with peg-interferon and ribavirin for 48 weeks. But other hepatitis C type 2 or 3 respond well to treatment and have the cure percentage of 80 to 90 percent after treatment. There is also no vaccine for hepatitis C. Hope this helps.
