12 weeks post treatment- UND!!

Hey guys, I'm 12 weeks post treatment and UND!  I was so nervous and scared for those results. 12 more weeks and I pray an SVR!

I remember reading that at 12 weeks UND, the SVR rate is 95% then it jumps to 99% at 6 months with SVR. Is that accurate or no?

Thanks for all your support the past 18 months.

Congrats to you!!

Week 12 response had a positive predictive value of 99.7% for predicting Week 24 SVR.

The researchers concluded that assessment of serum HCV RNA 12 weeks after the end of treatment using a highly sensitive TMA assay "is as relevant as after 24 weeks to predict SVR and make decisions on the management of treated patients, suggesting a new definition for SVR."

M Martinot-Peignoux, C Stern, S Maylin, and others. Twelve weeks posttreatment follow-up is as relevant as 24 weeks to determine the sustained virologic response in patients with hepatitis C virus receiving pegylated interferon and ribavirin. Hepatology 51(4):1122-1126 (Abstract). April 2010.

Congrats to your sustained viral response of 12 wks (SVR12).
As Will posted above 99.7% predicative of SVR24.
I got it ! :-)
