Analyses of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine: Taking the Hepatitis C Virus from Mystery Killer to Preventable and Treatable Disease
TLDR
An overview of the hepatitis disease and the work of this year's laureates is given and a bibliometric look at the scientist's research is taken to add to the discussions about the way modern science is done and the limitations of prestigious science awards being awarded to only three awardees.

An assay for circulating antibodies to a major etiologic virus of human non-A, non-B hepatitis
TLDR
Assays of ten blood transfusions in the United States that resulted in chronic NANBH revealed that there was at least one positive blood donor in nine of these cases and that all ten recipients seroconverted during their illnesses. Expand
Isolation of a cDNA clone derived from a blood-borne non-A, non-B viral hepatitis genome.
TLDR
A random-primed complementary DNA library was constructed from plasma containing the uncharacterized non-A, non-B hepatitis agent and screened with serum from a patient diagnosed with NANBH, showing consistent with the agent being similar to the togaviridae or flaviviridae. Expand
