Since I am HBeAG negative Viread is not being refunded here - only IFN,lamivudine. I signed up for a clinical trial with combo Viread + IFN. After reading more and more I'am wondering if I should take VIREAD knowing It will be for a finite period of time - a lot of people suggest not to stop taking it because of the viral load spike afterwards.
Question is should I take VIREAD for a finite period of time or go the IFN way now ? I haven't taken any treatment yet.
I am 29 years old diagnosed at Jan 2012. My results are
HBV DNA 255036 IU/ml
Fibroscan F0-F1 (6.8Kpa)
Also How long must I wait before trying to conceive a child after Viread or IFN treatment treatment ?
Thanks for your reply. I googled up the patent and found some info its going off in 2018 - thats good news for me I guess.
Can you answer my question regarding pregnancy ? Me and my wife are attempting 3rd time after 2 miscarriages. She had autoimmune therapy and we have a green light for 3rd attempt. Problem is that the first 2 attempts were 100% success now its 4 month trying and still nothing - damn nature is against us. The therapy is valid for a finite period of time and this trial can last up to two years. How long must one wait after taking viread until I can safely try again ?
Also thanks very much for your input around here cause doctors around here either don't care and give you standard program for HBV or run clinical trials.
Just got my latest results. After careful study I'm a bit confused with the HBeAg being Reactive. Does this mean I switched from being HBeAg- to HBeAg+ ?
The rest is
HBsAg Quant 4492,21 IU/mL
HBV DNA 146346 IU/ml
Is DNA that jumpy ? My previous count mentioned in in the original post was made about June. This is October.
Finally I got randomized into Interferon monotherapy. After first dose I don't notice any sides.
I am going to start Viread tomorrow.. You mean I should ask my doc to start INF with Viread? Or take the Viread first to knock down the Viral load and then start the inf? i am so confused with all the protocols.
