Hepatitis C can often be clinically resolved; the term ‘cure’ is rather ambiguous, unfortunately. Do you have HCV?

Conclusions: Sustained virological response to PEG-IFN and ribavirin is maintained in 99% of patients during long-term follow-up. Late virological relapse occurred within 1 year after SVR and, from a clinical perspective, patients can be considered cured of infection after this period.

I would say the short answer is a definite YES.

A cure is not simple, painless or a sure thing, but there are many here that are cured. I am using the word "cured" here to be synonymous with "SVR", meaning that the virus is no longer replicating in your liver and cousing continued damage.

You can learn a lot more here and at other sites, notably:
