Hi, thanks Katla for the link. I am on the 12-week, Riba arm. My VL came down from 1,470,000 to 163 w/in a 10-day period. Have you had any sides? I think most of my sides have been from the Riba, but it's hard to tell.
I was on 7977, BMS520079, an riba. Some sx were: Little stomach upset the first week or so. Slight light headedness for a few seconds after taking 7977 for the first week or so. Slight cough from the riba lasted unti 5 weeks post tx. It came and went. from the riba. I kept a journal if you want more info.
Hi UKgirl, congrats on your 9th day Treating :)
I'm sorry, but I was distracted with my own Tx, during many of your posts, but I am interested in this Trial you are in.
Can you tell me what genotype you are, your Stage of liver damage, and if you have Treated before?
I'm sorry, I should have it memorized, since I read your posts, but I was mainly focused on the Triple Tx posts~
I would much rather have the rest of my friends and family, who have Hep C, do the Interferon Free Tx's.
One more question: Do you, or anybody else reading this,know if there is a chance of you becoming tolerant to the new generation of DAA (7977 aka Sofosbuvir) in this study, and if this happens, what the research Docotrs plan on doing, if this happens?
This is my husbands fear, so he is staying away from these double blind studies~
yeah...I'm anxiously awaiting the results from my (almost) 24 weeks post...should have it early next week.I couldn't get much information from my trial coordinator. I know they had 9 subjects/patients, my guess is 6 on the 12 week, some with and some without Riba. I know not everyone is clear but she said they were happy were the results.
oh my old friends! hi everyone and yes im undetectable at 6 months post too! good luck with your trial ukgirl!!! second week undetectable, amazing :D
hi katla! i was told, i thought anyway, that every one on our trial was und at 6 months post- no?
