not smart, tenofovir has no resistance so what he said does make no sense....
it is like saying we use a weaker drug so if we make a resistance on etv we can use tdf....use tdf directly and avoid the weaker effect of etv on both hbvdna and hbsag
TAF, I'm on the clinical trial on it.. though unsure if it's TAF or TDF as it's a double blind study. All I know is that it's working and knocked down my DNA almost 18 million in the first month. According to my schedule, my trial ends 2016 and then there is an open label for another year until 2017.
Open Label means clinical trials do not attempt to disguise the new drug or treatment, meaning that no standard treatment or placebo is utilized. This leans towards bias, as both the patient and the physician are aware of which groups are receiving what type of treatment.
In this case, it would be the fourth phase of the clinical trial (It's on phase III right now) and it assure that everyone in the trial is being treated with TAF only... not TDF and the placebo or TAF and the placebo.
my doctor suggested ETV. i drunk for my doctor's suggestion last 2 year. 2 month ago i went to another doctor. he offer TDF. now i dont know how do i do. can you suggest good doctor's contact and hospital? my body day to day tired, fatigue ...................
