Hi Pam,

Thanks for posting your comment. Sorry to hear about relapsing in 2005 although it was common with the older treatments.

The best place to talk with others and ask questions about new treatments is the Hep Forums (http://forums.hepmag.com/).

Please visit and post your questions there.

Best,

I have Hep C Genotype 1a and went on standard treatment for 48 weeks I. 2005. I tested undetectable at 12,24,36, and 48 weeks. But 12 weeks after treatment I relapsed. I'm so confused about all of the new treatment as to whether or not I may be a candidate. Can you give me some guidance which one to start researching?

This is good news. I was clear during the treatment but Hep C came back after treatment stopped. I am very interested in this new treatment

For those of us with Genus 1 who cannot take Interferon or Ribaviron, there is still nothing unless the FDA approves one of the dual drug non-interferon non-Ribaviron treatments.
