Kiwi researcher's acclaim for breakthrough in hepatitis C treatment

A New Zealand researcher has been recognised for a major breakthrough in the treatment of a virus which causes liver failure.

Professor Edward Gane was one of more than a dozen researchers and scholars awarded medals by the Royal Society of New Zealand at a ceremony in Wellington last night.

Professor Gane, from Auckland City Hospital and the Auckland District Health Board, received the Liley Medal for his work on an improved treatment for hepatitis C, which is a major cause of liver failure in New Zealand.
