Aerosmithís Steven Tyler Advocates against Hepatitis C

Published: 2006-09-26
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler contracted Hepatitis C three years ago during a break from recording. Hepatitis C is a blood-borne infection that can potentially lead to fatal liver damage including cirrhosis or liver cancer.

The New York Daily News reported Tyler as saying, "I've been pretty quiet about thisÖyou know it really hurt, it was a bad, bad period." Thankfully Tyler says through treatment he was able to recover and work to illimenate the virus from his bloodstream.

E! online reports Hepatitis C is often transmitted through dirty needles, and while there is no known cure, Tyler was fortunate that his prescription for interferon worked and strengthened his immune system in time.
