As reported by Medical News Today in Preventing hepatitis C in young drug injectors, the study's lead investigator, Kimberly Page, PhD, MPH, a professor in the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and in UCSF Global Health Sciences, said, "Based on our UFO Study here in San Francisco, we have accumulated data that identify key strategies that, when scaled up, could substantially reduce the rate of new hepatitis C infections among young people who inject drugs."
