Oh wow, I had that same question.  Thanks paen53, I never noticed that page!  The abbreviations I have seen the most, in the threads I have read:

svr -- sustained virologic response: closest thing to a cure for Hep C; continues undetected 6 months after treatment
tx -- treatment
sx -- symptoms/side effects
riba -- ribavirin
