yes actually it should say "do not develop severe fibrosis/cirrhosis without treatment" but there is no way to know in advance who will stay hcc free or severe fibrosis free so it makes no sense the 75% part, while the fact that few develop cirrhosis is the important part

With successful antiviral treatment can one still progress to cirrhosis?  I know HCC is still a risk, although I read it is reduced with antivirals.
