### Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Classification Dataset

---
![](HepatitusCVirus.jpg)
---


The Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Classification Dataset contains information about 1385 patients who underwent treatment for HCV. The dataset provides information about the symptoms the patients were experiencing as well as the results of their Liver Function Tests (LFTs) and Blood Panels before the start of treatment and at the end of the treatment.

This data set can be used to determine if it is possible to reach a diagnosis regarding HCV through only blood tests. It can also be used to predict the condition of a patients liver solely based on their bloodwork.

This data set is recommended for practicing classification modelling techniques.
