"Comeagain", the father of my children, has genotype 3. Participating in a study for geno 3 relapsers with Pegasys 180 mcg and Copegys 1200 mg for 48 weeks, currently treating Jan - Dec 2008. Was detectable but not quantifiable week 4 with a test of the sensitivity of 15 IU/ml. Had to reduce Pegasys at week 2 to 135 mcg due to low netrophil count, back to 180 mcg at week 3. Relapsed first tx after 24 weeks of not weight based pegylated interferon and ribavirin (100 mcg PegIntron, 800 mg Rebetol). Probably had the virus for 35 years.

Just a quick note to say hi! I got my results wk.4 viral count went from almost 2 mill to 1,870 is that a 2 log drop? I am really short of breath and feeling nausas alot but still working and able to handle life day to day. I'm still dosing riba at 1400 a day till my xtra riba runs out. I wonder what impact it will have when I go back to 1,000 a day any thoughts on that would be great. Thanks
Thank you for everything! It means a lot that you would be willing to support me Thank you again. I will get the viral load #s pre tx and current. I have my 5/5/09 lab results but they dont have viral. SGOT/ 130 SGPT/ 118 Hemo 15.3 Serum HCV (IU) 1901300 is that the viral load?
