About Me: Female, Seattle, WA, member since Jul 2011
I am a 56 year old female. My husband failed his third treatment for Hep C, Genotype 1a, with triple therapy (Inc., Peg Interferon, and Ribavirin) in April, 2012 He was diagnosed in 2007 with Hep C, F1-2, and did SOC for 12 weeks. He was a partial responder and had t
[More]o discontinue. In 2010 liver biopsy results showed beginning Cirrhosis. He treated with daily Infergen injections and 1400 mg. Ribavirin daily for 12 weeks. Again, partial responder, had to discontinue. So disappointing. Began third treatment (triple therapy with Inc., Int., and Riba) on September 30, 2012, VL=78 at week 4, VL=UND at week 8, VL=UND at week 12, VL=<12 at week 18, VL = <12 at week 22, VL = 22 at week 24. Failed treatment, and treatment discontinued on 4/12/12. Routine labs, ultrasounds, and appointments with hepa every 6 months now. Most recently all labs and CT scan good, November 2012, next follow up is in May 2013. Hanging in there waiting for clinical trials or new treatment.

Thank you so much for sending that info. I think 2014 will be the year both of our husbands will finally clear this virus.
